Congratulations to our U16 side who defeated Borrisokane in the North U16b final last Saturday in Nenagh on a scoreline of 3-12 to 1 -10. In what was an exciting game from start to finish Borrisoleigh got off to a great start with goals from Kevin Maher and Jamie Corcoran in the first quarter following some good play by Conor Keane and Aaron Rabbitte. In the second quarter though the scores dried up and it took some good goalkeeping from Alvis Danko, along with some great defending from all six defenders particularly Jack Prior who was outstanding, to ensure we had a narrow lead at half time 2-03 to 5pts. In the second half Borrisokane worked hard and got themselves into a two point lead with 10 minutes remaining. A great point from Dan Brookes however sparked Borris Ileigh into life followed by further scores from Jamie Corcoran, Raymond Mc Cormck (1-1), Gerry Kelly and substitute James Devaney. Team Captain Gerry Kelly accepted the trophy from North Board Chairman John Delaney. We will now play Loughmore Castleiney in the Co semi final.
