Feb 27, 2015 - Seniors Beat Kildress By Four In Garvaghey

Ulster League Group E: Kildress Wolf Tones 0-10 v 1-11 Belcoo O'Rahilly's

Belcoo produced a rousing second half display to come from behind and record a second victory of their Ulster League campaign. The O’Rahilly’s travelled to Tyrone’s Garvaghey Complex for their encounter with Kildress on a synthetic 3G pitch and secured a 1-11 to 0-10 win.

The game was played with a tricky crossfield gale which was favouring Belcoo to a degree in the first period but it would be Kildress who held sway at the interval, leading 0-5 to 0-4. Both sides traded early points, Kildress registering from a free while Belcoo’s patient build up seen Gavin Leonard play a one two with Paul McGrath before firing over the bar.

Kildress were on top for most of the half, stifling the Belcoo middle and attacking sectors with their robust tackles and high pressing, Belcoo relying on the deadly accurate Jonathan Feeley from frees to keep the scoreboard ticking, Feeley hit all three of Belcoo’s points from placed balls before the interval after powerful runs from Brian Cox, Barry McGovern and James McGrath had drawn fouls.

KIldress had managed a few scores from play as well as frees as they took a narrow lead into the break.

Upon the resumption Belcoo really upped their game, Brian Cox came to the fore around the middle, winning possession on several occasions as his side took control and had an extremely profitable spell.

Half time substitute Eoin Leonard made an immediate impact, latching onto a Paul McGrath pass to kick a fine score from the right wing. The O’Rahilly’s would win possession from the kick out and worked another good move down the right where Feeley found Christopher Leonard, his effort at a point caught in the swirling wind and deceived the Kildress goalkeeper as it dropped under the crossbar for a goal.

Belcoo continued to drive forward following the three pointer, Ryan Leonard made a surging run having gathered a break ball before offloading to Feeley who split the posts with a right footed score while James McGrath was a willing runner who gained plenty of possession as Belcoo continued to carve out openings.

 Barry McGovern was next to race past a few defenders before being upended, Feeley tapping over the free as Belcoo had hit 1-3 without reply from the interval.

Kildress did get themselves back into the tie with two points but the Belcoo defence was remaining solid as they held a 1-7 to 0-7 lead. Ryan McGovern, Niall Leonard and Declan Leonard coming out with possession ahead of their opposite numbers frequently.

 The sides traded points from here, Feeley with both Belcoo scores, a fisted point and another well hit free kick in tough conditions to leave it 1-9 to 0-9.

There was 12minutes remaining when Shane McCabe entered the fray in an unfamiliar wing back role, his first act was to burst forward and kick a good point but Kildress were still a threat and Aidan Leonard in the Belcoo goals was to make a good with his body, deflecting a goalbound effort over the bar.

As time ticked down Feeley knocked over another free kick while Kildress mustered a late point but Belcoo had stepped it up in the second half to see off a lively Kildress side and returned from their trip  Tyrone with a four point win.

Next up is a home game on Sunday at 11am against Donegal side Naomh Colmcille.

Team: Aidan Leonard, Ryan McGovern, Niall Leonard, Ryan Leonard, Declan Leonard, Gavin Leonard (0-1), Ronan Meehan, Brian Cox, Christopher Leonard (1-0), James McGrath, Paul McGrath, Barry McGovern, Aidan McGrath, Jonathan Feeley (0-8, 6f), Gary Maguire. Subs used: Eoin Leonard (0-1), Niall Cullen, Shane McCabe (0-1).

Feb 22, 2015 - Minor Match Reports

The minor league is well underway and Belcoo have picked up a win and a loss in their two fixtures to date.

Sunday 22nd February: Brookeborough 2-11 v 4-8 Belcoo

This was the first official fixture the club has played in since the tragic death of Oisin McGrath, a minute silence prior to the game was impeccably observed.

Conditions were dreadful on the day and Belcoo were without one of their more established players in Brian Furey as well as Ciaran Flanagan who had a good first game at Minor level a fortnight ago in Donagh however Belcoo were still able to come away with a victory following a gutsy display.

The O’Rahilly’s welcomed back Aaron McTernan from a troubling hamstring injury and for the first 10 minutes he played well and had appeared to be moving well. Unfortunately Aaron's reoccurring problem meant that he had to leave the field of play after only 12 minutes and this was a big blow for Belcoo.

Brookeborough scored first with a strong wind but Belcoo grew in confidence with quick points from Aaron McTernan and Matthew McAloon. Brookeborough equalised but soon Belcoo took control with a further point from James Gillespie. Matthew McAloon scored a goal and soon after Belcoo produced their best move of the contest to register a second goal.

A good ball out of defence by Gerard McHugh found Eoin Shiels who in turn played a long ball into Conor McAloon, he looked up and passed the ball inside to Gary Doherty and Doherty made no mistake when placing the ball to the corner of the net. 

Approaching half time Brookeborough took command and hit 5 points without reply before Conor McAloon got the final point of the first period leaving the interval score as Brookeborough 0-8 v 2-4 Belcoo.

In the first five minutes of the second half Brookeborugh had got back level with 2 points. Belcoo then had a very good spell with James Gillespie scoring a good free before Matthew McAloon found the net again. Gillespie hit another excellent point. Great work between 14 years old  Conor McAloon and Shane Doherty ended up with a fine goal from young Doherty.

As Belcoo began to look the likely winners, Brookeboro hit a purple patch once more. With 10minutes remaining Brookeborough netted two quick goal, the second a penalty kick.

Belcoo though would steady themselves over the closing moments as Conor McAloon and James Gillespie scored points to ensure victory for the young O'Rahillys.

The Belcoo full back line of Gerard McHugh, Jonathan Stewart and James McAloon played well while another big effort from Eoin Shiels at half back. James Gillespie, Gary Doherty & Matthew McAloon also proved to be key players for Belcoo as did the younger members of the side including Dermot Burns, Conor McAloon and Shane Doherty had their moments in front of goals.

Team:  Andrew Ferguson, Dermot Burns, Gerard McHugh, James McAloon, Jonathan Stewart, Eoin Shiels, Aaron McTernan (0-1), Michael McGourty, Matthew McAloon (2-1), James Gillespie (0-4), Gary Doherty (1-0), Colm Furey, Daire Keaney, Michael Doherty, Conor McAloon (0-2), Micheal Coffey & Shane Doherty(1-0).


Sunday 8th February: St. Pat’s 9-10 v 4-6 Belcoo

This league opener was played in Donagh on a very cold and foggy Sunday morning, both sides were under strength but it was the hosts who handled the conditions that bit better to secure the win and they are indeed warm favourite for this Divisional title.

For long periods Belcoo were quite competitive despite the final score line would suggest. The midfield pairing of James Gillespie and Matthew McAloon played well for Belcoo. Eoin Shiels was very busy and did a lot of the running work for the O'Rahilly's.

The younger players including Ciaran Flanagan and Gerard McHugh also performed well while young Dermot Burns give an eye-catching performance in goals during the first half.

Team:  Dermot Burns, Andrew Ferguson, Gerard McHugh, James McAloon, Jonathan Stewart, Eoin Shiels, Michael McGourty, Matthew McAloon (2-3), James Gillespie (0-3), Colm Furey (1-0), Daire Keaney, Michael Doherty, Conor McAloon, Ciaran Flanagan (1-0), Andrew Ferguson & Shane Doherty.
