Borris-Ileigh V Lorrha 08/06/2014

A hatrick from full forward Conor Kenny helped Borris-Ileigh to a 4 point win over a valiant Lorrha side on Sunday evening in Cloughjordan. With a stiff breeze running into the bottom corner of McDonagh Park, Borris got off the mark quickest and showing little regard for the elements, netted an opening goal through Conor Kenny. The goal broke the floodgates for Borris as Lorrha had little answer for them in the first ten minutes. A long free from wing back Thomas Fahy was knocked to the back of the net in cool fashion from Kenny for his second goal. Points from an already dangerous looking Dan McCormack(2) and Jack Hogan left Borris in a commanding 2-04 to 0-01 lead on the ten minute mark-Lorrha’s only score coming through Jimmy Dunne. However Lorrha did not lie down as many expected and for the remainder of the half outscored Borris by 0-09 to 1-02. For what can only be called an extreme rarity, Brian Hogan in the Lorrha goal collected a ball, and with space and a strong wind found himself well within shooting range and slotted over a point from play. Patrick Bonner Maher then pointed before Sean McCormack struck for a Borris point before Ciaran Hough put over a well taken sideline ball. A few minutes afterwards David O Connor surged through the blue defence and with a smart offload found Kenny who had the easiest of finished to the back of the net. It was yet again not to be a final nail in the Lorrha coffin as scores from Michael Cleary, Ronan O Meara, Aidan McIntyre and Haugh kept them in some form of contention by the time Michael Cahill blew for half time. The score stood at Borris 3-06 Lorrha 0-10. As with the first half, the breeze seemed to do no favours for either team. A David O Connor free and a Dan McCormack pointed extended the lead to 7. An illness struck Brendan Maher was introduced on the 37th minute and despite him pointing relatively straight away it did not deter the men from the top of the county. On the 43rd minute Cian Hogan’s powerful running saw him collect the ball and blast to the net. The game was now well in the mix and Lorrha looked like a team out to win, especially after a Patrick Maher free to level affairs. Scores were traded with quick responses for the next period. A great save from Cian Hogan denied Conor Kenny a clear goal. A free from a now influential Brendan Maher steadied the ship for Borris and minutes later when a long clearance from Dan McCormack hopped between two Lorrha defenders, substitute Benny Harkin was quickest off the mark and finished to the net. The goal settled Borris greatly and Dan McCormack’s fifth point of the game looked to have wrapped up the game for the men in marron. Further points from Sean McCormack and Keith Ryan cancelled out placed ball scores for Lorrha to leave the final score at Borris 4-15 Lorrha 1-20
