Apr 20, 2014 - Juniors Win In Ederney
JUNIORS: St. Joseph's 0-9 v 1-9 Belcoo
Belcoo Juniors did enough to win and no more on a sweltering hot Sunday morning in Ederney as they recorded a 1-9 to 0-9 victory.
The Division Two contest failed to spark into any life in what was a low key affair but the O'Rahilly's managed to pull away midway through the second period before keeping their opponents at arms length for the remainder.
Belcoo Juniors prematch huddle v St. Joseph's
In the opening 15minutes both sides could only muster one point a piece with Ciaran McNabb on target for St. Joseph's while Kieran Conlon accounted for the Belcoo point, a good score from the left wing.
The visitors though had a number of opportunities to extend their tally. Aaron Dolan drove forward from wing back and slipped Ian Corrigan through on goal but Corrigan saw his shot well saved by Conor Maguire. Wides followed from James Gillespie, Matthew McAloon and Philip Leonard while at the other end a timely tackle from the excellent James Stewart denied Enda Ferris a shot at goal.
The scoreboard would eventually begin to tick again when a good ball from Kieran Conlon picked out Aidan McGrath who tapped over and it would be McGrath again who landed the next score following another surging run forward from Dolan.
Ciaran McNabb would hit Ederney's first score in some 20 minutes before Ryan Morris, Niall Maguire and Donal Gormley all pointed during their side's best spell as the half drew to a close. The last score however would come from a Gary Maguire free kick as the half ended with the hosts 0-5 to 0-4 to the good.
Belcoo would introduce Ryan McGovern and Eoin Leonard in the second half to the defence and both played pivotal roles in scuppering Ederney attacks while starting Belcoo attacks throughout the second half.
A good break ball was gathered by Eoin Leonard four minutes into the half and he in turn released Niall Cullen down the middle, to land a fine point. Aaron Dolan, who performed well in an unfamilar defensive role in the first half, was now operating in attack and he would fire over a neat point from the right side to give Belcoo a 0-6 to 0-5 lead seven minutes into the half.
Liam Maguire would respond for St. Joseph's before Philip Leonard sparked into life for five minutes, knocking in 1-2 which hoisted Belcoo into a strong position. Leonard's first point was a fine effort from the left wing but Niall Maguire would tie proceedings again with a point for seven all.
Belcoo would string together a flowing forward move with Eoin Leonard and second half substitute Stephen Nolan to the fore with the latter finding Philip Leonard for his second point. Moments later another turnover in defence saw Ryan McGovern, Eoin Leonard and Matthew McAloon all involved in the counter attack which ended with Philip Leonard thundering a shot into the corner.
McAloon followed up with a close range point and with 10 minutes remaining Belcoo now led 1-9 to 0-7.
Whilst the O'Rahilly's never scored in the closing stages, their defence stood firm with Shane McAloon, James Stewart and Ryan McGovern in the full back line keeping the Ederney attack at bay. Mark Kelly and Niall Maguire would both land late scores but a goal was what the hosts required and they failed to carve out a clear opening.
TEAM: Jack O'Dolan, Martin Corrigan, James Stewart, Shane McAloon, James Gillespie, Niall Cullen (0-1), Aaron Dolan (0-1), Gerard Mellor, Ronan Meehan, Aidan McGrath (0-2), Ian Corrigan, Matthew McAloon (0-1), Kieran Conlon (0-1), Philip Leonard (1-2), Gary Maguire (0-1, 1f).

Apr 13, 2014 - Belcoo easily dispose of Newtown
Newtownbutler 0-04 Belcoo 2-14
The senior team got their league campaign off to a winning start after a convincing 2-14 to 0-04 victory over a poor Newtownbutler side.
Even the sending off of midfielder Seamus Conlon at the start of the second half didn’t hamper the visitors who scored 1-10 without reply in the second period.
Belcoo were first on the scoreboard courtesy of Shain Gallagher and were dominant throughout the field but were struggling to convert the pressure into scores.

Ciarán Flaherty, Gavin Leonard and John Carrigan popped over scores for the visitors while Sean Mullaney, aided by a stiff breeze converted four frees for Newtownbutler in the first half.
Belcoo could have been further ahead but a fine save from the Newtown goalkeeper denied Gavin Leonard but a goal would come as the first half was drawing to a close.
Pressure from Belcoo forwards forced a turnover 20 yards out and Brian Cox made no mistake as he bore down on goal, rounding the keeper and slipping the ball into the net.
Another point from Flaherty gave Belcoo a four-point cushion going in at the half on a score line of 1-05 to 0-04.
The second half had barely started when Seamus Conlon received his marching orders for a strike on his midfield opponent but the numerical disadvantage did not bother Belcoo as they completely controlled proceedings and the game was wrapped up when Johnny Feeley slotted home from an acute angle midway through the half.
Feeley was a prominent figure throughout the half on the scoreboard knocking over four points as he and Cox won everything that went into them.
Flaherty added his third of the game before shooting wide when straight on goal while Gavin Leonard added his second after good work from Paul McGrath.
Brain Cox, Paul McGrath and substitute Aaron Dolan added further points as the visitors continued to dominate while Newtown were unable to break down a determined and organized Belcoo defence which set the platform for a free scoring second half.
So a solid team performance sealed the two points for the O’Rahilly’s against a disappointing Newtown side and the victory will give them confidence going into a busy schedule of fixtures over the next month.
Best wishes and a get well soon to Shain Gallagher who had to leave the field with a shoulder injury.
TEAM: – James McGrath, Ryan McGovern, Niall Leonard, Ryan Leonard, James Stewart, Niall McGovern, Declan Leonard, John Carrigan, Seamus Conlon, Shain Gallagher, Ciarán Flaherty, Gavin Leonard, Paul McGrath, Brian Cox, Johnny Feeley.

Apr 12, 2014 - Belcoo dominant in modest encounter
Brookborough 1-07 Belcoo 1-12
Belcoo Juniors recorded a 1-12 to 1-7 victory over Brookeborough in a low key affair on Saturday evening 12 April.The visiting O'Rahilly's held the upper-hand throughout but didn't guarantee the win until the last 10 minutes.
Brookeborough midfielder Sean Breen tapped over a close free kick after a mistake in defence by Gerard Mellor but this was the only time the hosts held the lead. A sixth minute Philip Leonard point got Belcoo on their way after Aidan McGrath did well to turnover possession at the back before Matthew McAloon fed Leonard who kicked a good score.
Moments later another turnover in defence by Padraig Higgins started a counter attack which saw Kieran Conlon gather possession before slipping in Leonard for a second point. An 11th minute penalty moved the O'Rahilly's 1-2 to 0-1 ahead after Damian Holleran was pulled down and up stepped Philip Leonard to drill home the spot kick from 11 metres.
Holleran would land a good score from play before Seamus Breen again registered a free for the hosts while Sean Campbell added a fine individual score from play to cut the deficit to three.
Gerard Mellor wasn't getting much change from the referee having won some good possession in midfield where he was regularly hounded by Brookeborough men without a free.
Gary Maguire was next to hit the target for Belcoo from a placed ball while Damian Curran replied for the hosts.
As half time approached Kieran Conlon blazed a glorious chance for a goal wide and Philip Leonard also fired wide from a good position but Gary Maguire added another free kick to his name and Aaron Dolan landed a fine point from play to end the half leaving five between the sides on a scoreline of Brookeborough 0-4 to Belcoo's 1-06.
Early scores from Barry McGovern and Kieran moved Belcoo into a strong position with McGovern driving forward from centre back to pop over a long range point while Conlon's points would give the visitos a seven point cushion. However, Conlon's point would be Belcoo's last for 21 minutes as the quality of the contest disintegrated.
Intermittent frees from Breen in the 38th and 45th minute left five between the sides before the hosts cut through the Belcoo defense with a second half substitute palming the ball into the net with 48 minutes played.
Belcoo would eventually end their drought with a Gary Maguire free kick seven minutes from time but John Boyle cancelled out this effort before Belcoo finally secured the win late on with points from another Maguire free, Philip Leonard and Damian Holleran.
TEAM: Jack O'Dolan, Martin Corrigan, Padraig Higgins, Shane McAloon, Aidan McGrath, Barry McGovern (0-1), Ronan Meehan, Ian Corrigan, Gerard Mellor, Matthew McAloon, Aaron Dolan (0-1), Damian Holleran (0-2, 1f), Gary Maguire (0-4, all frees), Philip Leonard (1-3, 1pen), Kieran Conlon (0-1).
