Apr 19, 2015 - Seniors Make It Two From Two
SENIORS: Lisnaskea 1-7 v 0-13 Belcoo
Belcoo would make it two wins from two outings as they travelled to Lisnaskea and returned winners on a 0-13 to 1-7 scoreline. The O’Rahilly’s held the upperhand throughout and with a three point interval lead built up they managed the remainder of the game quite well to secure the victory.

The visitors got off to a good start with Jonathan Feeley raising the white flag twice in the opening exchanges although Lisnaskea hit back with a goal in the ninth minute, Sean Keenan capitalising on an error in the Belcoo defence to set up a goal for a Garbhan McManus.
Belcoo responded immediate with Brian Cox racing through the Lisnaskea defence to clip over a point. The O’Rahilly’s were controlling matters, holding possession well as they tried to breakdown a compact and crowded Lisnaskea defence. Feeley would break loose to land another point from play on the right wing before James McGrath fisted a high ball over the bar.
Sean Keenan would pull a point back for the home side but Belcoo continued on the front foot, James McGrath had a goal disaloowed for a square ball before Feeley once more found the target for his fourth and Belcoo’s six point of the day. 0-6 to 1-1 at this juncture.

Another patience build up seen Declan Leonard pick out Barry McGovern with a wonderful pass, McGovern drilling over a point from inside the 21m line. Niall McElroy would register at the other end while Keenan pointed a 45m free coming to half time.
In the closing moments of the half Jonathan Feeley knocked over a free and a fine effort from play to leave the half time score, 1-3 to 0-9 in Belcoo’s favour.
Niall McElroy would cut the deficit to two points upon the resumption but this was as close as the hosts got. Jonathan Feeley would land a free after Matthew McAloon was fouled close to goal before he drilled over another point from play from 35yards.

Sean Keenan would score a free but the Belcoo defence was remaining firm and it was the visitors who continued to dictate the contest. For the second time in the game the O’Rahilly’s had a goal disallowed, a looping ball into the square seen Niall McGovern and James McGrath contest for the ball with Lisnaskea goalkeeper Colin Copeland, McGovern fisting the ball to the net but referee James Lewis seen an infringement somewhere.
Stephen Phair was next to find the target as the Emmetts made it a two point game but once more Belcoo pushed forward to add to their tally, Paul McGrath releasing Matthew McAloon to score from the right wing. Jonathan Feeley hit his ninth of the contest with a great right footed effort as Belcoo edged four clear as the game went into extra time.
With the last kick of the tie Sean Keenan pointed a free to bring the game to its end, 0-13 to 1-7 Belcoo the victors.
This coming Friday, Belcoo travel to Maguiresbridge.

Apr 18, 2015 - League Leaders Tempo Too Strong
U14s: Tempo 13-8 v 1-5 Belcoo
Belcoo U14s would produce a workmanlike hour but ultimately suffered a heavy loss to a strong Tempo side. The winners have 13 of their players in there last year at this age bracket while Belcoo have 14 players have two more years at this level and all can play Under 12 football later this season.
It was a mismatch in terms of size and strength but it wouldn’t prevent the young O’Rahilly’s trying their best on what was a hot day in Tempo. Belcoo made a good start to the tie, some excellent tackling at the back denied the hosts before a 4th minute point from Conor Magee got the scoreboard moving.
Belcoo would get the next two scores, Lawrence McKeown firing over a great point from long distance before a good move down the left involving Emmett McGuinness and Cian White seen Lawrence McKeown gather possession and driving in from the wing to add another point.
Tempo registered their first goal on 10minutes, midfielder Dylan Flynn’s shot for a point dropping under the crossbar into the net. Within a minute Tempo had added two more goals, Padraig McCaffrey with two good finishes.
Oisin O’Loughlin, Dara Flanagan and Matthew Mulvey were turning over Tempo attacks while Mark Ferguson and Oisin Leonard were getting through plenty of work in the middle. Fiachra McAloon and Josh Killilea were providing an outlet on the right side and Belcoo would hit the next score. Josh Killilea pointing a great effort from the right wing to leave it 3-1 to 0-3 midway through the half.
Conor Magee would bang in another Tempo goal before the hosts were awarded a penalty as Dara Flanagan hauled down his man. Not for the first time this year Jamie Ray saved the penalty kick and resulting rebound before Conor McKeown cleared the danger.
Tempo continued to apply pressure but Belcoo were curtailing them well and were playing some neat football when in possession themselves. Tempo though strike two more goals Michael McPhilips and Niall Fee the scorers however Belcoo would register the final score of the half, Cian White nipping in to score a goal which left it 6-1 to 1-3 at the break.
In the second half Tempo continued to drive forward and add to their tally, Belcoo however continued to battle hard throughout. The young O’Rahilly’s worked the ball forward very well at times but couldn’t muster a score their hard work deserved. Gerry Nolan was lively in attack as was Jack Greene following his introduction. Emmett McGuinness continued to be a good link between defence and attack while Patrick Martin went into goals for the final 20minutes and made a few good stops.
Belcoo points in the second period came from Gerry Nolan and a Lawrence McKeown free kick. Belcoo travel to Garrison on Tuesday evening to face Devenish. Throw in is 6.45pm. Bus leaving corner at 5.40pm.
Team: Jamie Ray, Conor McKeown, Matthew Mulvey, Ben McNulty, Dara Flanagan, Oisin O’Loughlin, Emmett McGuinness, Mark Ferguson, Oisin Leonard, Fiachra McAloon, Lawrence McKeown (0-3), Cian White (1-0), Josh Killilea (0-1), Marc Stewart, Gerry Nolan (0-1).

SECTION B TABLE
Apr 18, 2015 - Strong Showing From Juniors
ERNE CUP DIVISION 2: Belcoo 6-14 v 3-4 St. Joseph's
Belcoo Juniors were to record their first win of the year with a strong showing at home to Ederney, running out winners on a 6-14 to 3-4 scoreline. The O’Rahilly’s made an incredible start with two goals in as many minutes although Ederney battled back to trail by five at the interval, the second half was a one sided affair.
The first attack of the tie seen Belcoo cut through the St. Joseph’s defence and Ronan Meehan’s close range effort for point dipped over the goalkeepers head into the net. Moments later Aaron Dolan fired into the net from close range and Belcoo were off to a flying start.
Barry McGovern would add a point before St. Joseph’s opened their account with a point with 8minutes played. The hosts were getting plenty of space in this 13 a side game, Declan Leonard, Barry McGovern and Gerard Mellor in particular seeing alot of the ball. Aaron Dolan knocked over a point and a maurading run from full back Aidan Leonard also led to a fine effort splitting the posts.
St. Joseph’s would register a goal but from the kickout Declan Leonard won possession and powered forward before slipping the ball to Gary Maguire who netted. Belcoo continued to hold sway and two Barry McGovern points extended their advantage.
Despite dominating long periods Belcoo would just lead by five at half time. The hosts lost their way coming to the end of the half, Patrick Sweeney was forced to make two good saves however the visitors did add a goal and two points to leave it 3-5 to 2-3.
In the second period Belcoo quickly established their position again, Ronan Meehan and Aaron Dolan pointed early on. The scores continued to flow with Ian Corrigan and two more Dolan points sending Belcoo into a comfortable lead at 3-10 to 2-3. St. Joseph’s would hit a goal and point but Belcoo would finish the last quarter very strongly.
Aaron Dolan squandered two one on one chances early in the half before eventually scoring his goal. Gary Maguire added a point before Martin Corrigan joined the attack from corner back to score a rare point.
Jack O’Dolan was introduced to the fray and quickly made his mark with a well struck point before firing in a goal from close range minutes later. Ian Corrigan would clip over a neat score and the contest was finished with a Dean McDermott goal, a tame effort somehow beating the St. Joseph’s goalkeeper.
TEAM: Patrick Sweeney, Martin Corrigan (0-1), Aidan Leonard (0-1), Barry McGovern (0-3), Declan Leonard, Brian Furey, Ronan Meehan (1-1), Gerard Mellor, Aidan McGrath, Kevin McPartland, Aaron Dolan (2-4) , Gary Maguire (1-1), Ian Corrigan (0-2).
