Down But Not Out
- Aug 25,2020
Bonniconlon ended their Group 1 campaign with a defeat to Kiltimagh but there were plenty of reasons for optimism after overcoming a dreadful first quarter
to go toe to toe with one of the favourites for the Intermediate crown.
Trailing by 1-7 to 0-0 at one stage, the Bonni men rallied in the second quarter to half the deficit by the interval at which point they trailed 1-8 to 1-3.
The second half was a ding dong affair with the teams trading goals and points early on but a well worked Kiltimagh goal in the final ten minutes ensured that they were able
to hold out for victory and top place in the group on head to head.
