Ciarán Carroll bagged a brace while first half substitute Eoghan Fennelly and Joe Bergin also scored to leave it 0-10 apiece at half time.But the game swung dramatically in Borris-Kilcotton’s favour on the resumption of play.PJ Scully showed deadly accuracy to fire home two goals beyond keeper Eoin Fleming and he then added a point to put daylight between the teams.Enda Rowland got a goal back for Abbeyleix when he drilled home a 21 metre free but Borris-Kilcotton weren’t finished yet.Neil Foyle raised his sides’ third green flag to increase the gap between the teams once more as we entered the closing stages.To Abbeyleix’s credit though, they kept plugging away and Rowland scored his second goal from another 21 metre free but it wasn’t enough and time ran out.Things are not set to get any easier for Abbeyleix either as they are up against county champions Camross next weekend.Meanwhile, Borris-Kilcotton will hope to make it three wins in a row when they face struggling Portlaoise next.SCORERS – Borris-Kilcotton: PJ Scully 2-10, Neil Foyle 1-1, Colm Stapleton, Eoin Fitzpatrick and Daire Quinlan 0-2 each Abbeyleix: Enda Rowland 2-5, Eoghan Fennelly 0-5, Callum Mullen 0-3, Ciarán Carroll 0-2, Joe Bergin 0-1BORRIS-KILCOTTON: Eoin Fleming; Noel Delaney, Stevie Finane, Ben Quinlan; Jim Fitzpatrick, Matthew Whelan, Conor Kilbane; Colm Stapleton, Eoin Fitzpatrick; Stephen Phelan, Neil Foyle, Danny Fitzpatrick; Stephen Dunphy, Daire Quinlan, PJ Scully.
