BRIAN BORUS LADIES FOOTBALL
Last Thursday evening the County Senior Ladies Football League final took place in Bansha between old rivals Brian Borus and Cappawhite. Even though Cappawhite got the better start with a point after five minutes of play, the tone of the game was set shortly after when Trisha Hickey found the back of the net. Brian Borus never looked back after this and further goals from Mairead Morrissey, Michelle Slattery and Trisha Hickey with points added by Claire Grogan, Jennifer Grant and Orla Fleming left the scoreline reading 4-6 to 0-2 at half time. The second half continued along the same lines. Cappawhite scored three points but Trisha Hickey, Linda Grogan, Maureen Murphy, Jennifer Grant and Mairead Morrissey added seven more to their total. The final score was Brian Borus 4-13 to Cappawhite 0-5. It was a fantastic team perfor mance by Brian Borus. While the forwards have been finding the posts at every game winning with high scores, great credit is due to the defense who have not conceeded a goal so far this year. The Frank O’Brien Cup, which had been donated by the club to honour the great man himself was presented to the winning captain Carmel Condon. Congratulations to John O’Gorman the manager, and all involved.
