Mar 27, 2015 - St. Columban's Win Schools Camogie Title

ALLIANZ CUMANN NA MBUNSCOL INDOOR CAMOGIE

St Columban’s win the title

 

Successful St. Columban's Team: Back (L-R) Caitlin Keown, Niamh Kilgannon, Aoife Keaney, Sinead Barrett... Front (L-R) Eimear Magee, Ciana McGrath (Captain), Niamh McAloon

Congratulations to the girls from St Columban’s PS who recently won the Allianz Cumann na mBunscol indoor competition. The girls started the competition slowly with a loss and a draw in their first two matches. However as the group stage progressed the girls gradually got into their stride and wins over St Paul’s Irvinestown and St John the Baptist Roscor as well as a draw against St Mary’s Mullymesker saw them reach the semi final.

In the semi final the girls played St Ninnidh’s who defeated them earlier in the competition. This game turned out to be a thrilling encounter. The game was level at full time and two further periods of extra time failed to separate two evenly matched teams. It was then down to golden goal to decide the winner. After almost fifteen minutes of play Sinead Barrett struck the goal that sent the Belcoo girls to the final.

In the final the girls played neighbours St Mary’s PS Mullymesker who they had drew with earlier in the day. The Belcoo girls started brightly and Eimear Magee struck a great early goal to give them the lead. The game then flowed from end to end without further goals. As Mullymesker pushed forward looking for the goal the Belcoo girls all worked exceptionally hard to hold on and win the title for the first time since 2013. 

This was a great team effort with all girls playing their part; Goalkeeper Niamh McAloon pulled off a number of saves while Aoife Keaney and Sinead Barrett defended well in front of her, team captain Ciana McGrath played a leading role in the midfield sector while Eimear Magee was a willing outlet further forward. Caitlin Keown and Niamh Kilgannon were also important members of the squad.

The girls now represent their school and Fermanagh in the Ulster competition which will be held in Co. Down next month.

Mar 22, 2015 - Minors Lose To Strong Kinawley Finish

Minors: Belcoo 3-7 v 2-18 Kinawley

A strong finish from Kinawley seen them record a victory in this league encounter in Belcoo on Sunday afternoon. The game was level with 10minutes remaining but 1-5 without reply from the visitors seen them to a 2-18 to 3-7 win. 

Kinawley were somewhat wasteful in the early exchanges and having soaked up a lot of pressure Belcoo eventually broke forward to score with their first meaningful attack, Conor McAloon firing into the net from close range. 

Kinawley were to respond with two points but Matthew McAloon and James Gillespie pointed at the other end for Belcoo. James McAloon made a fine save with his feet to deny a Kinawley goal, the visitors did add to their tally with four points before the interval.

Belcoo though would find the net twice before half time, Ciaran Flanagan swivelling in front of goal to fire in from close range on 22minutes while a Gary Doherty 45 hit the crossbar and was scrambled over the line, Matthew McAloon with the last touch. Michael McGourty added a late point to see Belcoo hold a 3-3 to 0-6 half time lead. 

  A Glorious Afternoon for Football at MacNean Park as Kinawley edged out Belcoo with a late flurry of scores

Within five minutes of the restart Belcoo's six point lead became a one point deficit, Kinawley tore through the middle all too easy to hit a quick 1-4 as they led for the first time. 

It was nip and tuck over the next 15minures as the sides traded points, Matthew McAloon (free), Conor McAloon, Colm Furey and Ciaran Flanagan scores for Belcoo left the game tied at 3-7 to 1-13 with 10minutes to go. 

James McAloon made two more good saves but eventually Kinawley registered another goal before tagging on five points over the closing minutes to run out winners by eight. 

Team: James McAloon, Michael McGourty (0-1), Jonathan Stewart, Colm Furey (0-1), Eoin Shiels, Aaron McTiernan, Gary Doherty, James Gillespie (0-1), Dermot Burns, Matthew McAloon (1-2), Michael Doherty, Ciaran Flanagan (1-1), Conor McAloon (1-1). Sub used. Daire Keaney. 

Mar 21, 2015 - U14s Lose Out In Brookeboro

U14's: Brookeboro 8-8 v 3-8 Belcoo

Belcoo U14’s produced another battling performance in which they played some of their best football to date this season however they were giving away a distinct height advantage in every sector of the field which Brookeboro made the most from as the hosts recorded an 8-8 to 3-8 win.

Belcoo had to defend deep early on but having held Brookeboro scoreless in the first five minutes, they broke forward, Oisin O’Loughlin picking out Lawrence McKeown with a great pass, he in turn found Gerry Nolan and Nolan pointed for the visitors.

Brookeboro responded with two identical goals, high balls into the square were punched into the net by six-foot midfielder Paddy Moane. There was little the Belcoo defence could to prevent either score.

The young O’Rahilly’s got themselves back into the contest with Gerry Nolan, who began the game very brightly, Nolan registered a goal after good tackling from Josh Killilea turned over possession, Nolan squeezing the ball past Patrick Goodwin in the Brookeboro goals before he then landed a point to leave it 2-0 to 1-2 after 15minutes.

Belcoo continued on the front foot and Josh Killilea would land a fantastic long range point before a full length sweeping move seen Marc Stewart drill over a point to give Belcoo the lead.

From here to half time Brookeboro penned Belcoo back in their half, a long drive from Zechariah Kyle dipped under Jamie Ray’s crossbar while Paddy Moane fisted his third goal of the day from another high ball. Points were added during this good spell by Moane (2) and Tim McCaffrey although Belcoo had a few forays forward, two efforts rebounding to safety off the post while goalkeeper Patrick Goodwin was alert to prevent a other goal chances, Brookeboro went in leading 4-3 to 1-4 at half time.

Brookeboro would hit two more goals upon the resumption of the game, again it was high balls causing Belcoo bother, Tim McCaffrey with both from distance, the shots dropping under the crossbar once more giving Belcoo substitute Patrick Martin little chance of keeping them out.

Belcoo to their credit continued to battle well, with the exception of the goals, Belcoo had done well to limit any clear cut chances. Conor McKeown and Sean Boylan had fine games in the corner back spot with Dara Flanagan again cutting out a lot of ball. Oisin O’Loughlin’s distribution from defence was the platform to several of his sides best moves while Matthew Mulvey and Emmett McGuinness got stuck in turning over possession.

Mark Ferguson was tackling and working hard alongside Oisin Leonard and it was Leonard who added Belcoo next point, a fine effort from an acute angle. Jack Greene was introduced to the attack and he would register Belcoo’s second goal of the day, jinking infield and firing into the corner.

Lawrence McKeown would add the next score as Belcoo’s mini revival continued, the score now 6-4 to 2-6. Brookeboro though power forward once more and some excellent long range points were tagged on before Moane flicked another ball into the net.

Gerry Nolan was unlucky not to add to Belcoo’s goal tally at the other end while Patrick Goodwin made two good saves from Lawrence McKeown and Josh Killilea to keep out certain goals.

Josh Killilea would clip over a point as did Oran McCann before Killilea registered the final score, a very well taken goal after a strong run.

It was another very good competitive game for the O’Rahilly’s who continue to work tirelessly for one another.

Training continues on Monday at 7pm.

Team: Jamie Ray, Conor McKeown, Dara Flanagan, Sean Boylan, Oisin O’Loughlin, Matthew Mulvey, Emmett McGuinness, Mark Ferguson, Oisin Leonard (0-1), Cian White, Oran McCann (0-1), Gerry Nolan (1-2), Josh Killilea (1-2), Marc Stewart (0-1), Lawrence McKeown (0-1). Subs Used: Patrick Martin, Jack Greene (1-0), Ben McNulty.
