Aug 18, 2019 - Facile Win For Minor Girls
MINOR GIRLS DIVISION 3: Belcoo 12-26 v 2-5 Maguiresbridge
The Minor girls had a facile 12-26 to 2-5 win over Maguiresbridge at MacNean Park this evening as they booked their place in the Division 3 League Final. Despite the fact there was 45 scores in the game, with 12minutes played it was just 0-2 a piece. By the interval Belcoo had pulled clear and from there on, the outcome was inevitable.
Belcoo did open the scoring in the first minute, Arlene Furey picked out Scarlett O’Connor who fed Sam Martin who slipped it into Mikayla Maguire who fired over the score. Maguiresbridge would register the next two points in the 2nd and 3rd minutes before Belcoo tied things up on 5minutes. Aoife Keaney and Mikayla Maguire doing well down the right hand side before Scarlett O’Connor gained possession and fired over her first score of the night.
It took 8minutes for the next score to be registered, there had been a few efforts at goal, some scrappy play alongwith some good defending at both ends before Sam Martin’s long solo run seen her finish it with a goal. Maguriesbridge replied with two quick points to leave the score Belcoo 1-2 v 0-4 after 17minutes.
Rhianne McGuinness out in front to win the ball while Arlene Furey takes her side upfield
Belcoo took total control of proceedings over the closing 13minutes of the half as they registered 5-8. It all started from a Riona Keaney kickout down the middle to Scarlett O’Connor who’d made a good run into the gap, O’Connor found Danielle McLaughlin on the left, she played a great ball across to Sam Martin, she however was denyed by the goalkeeper. Martin was fit to gather the rebound and recycle it to Mikayla Maguire for a well taken point.
From the kickout Belcoo worked a goal, three efforts had been saved in quick succession by goalkeeper and defenders before McLaughlin poked the ball into the net. Crona Higgins won a good break in the middle, she found Maguire in the corner and she shifted the ball to Aoife Keaney coming on the burst through the centre, Keaney’s shot was tipped over the bar by the visiting goalkeeper. 2-4 to 0-4.
Belcoo were showing no signs of letting up. Scarlett O’Connor was fouled, Mikayla Maguire thumped over the free kick while Aoife Keaney had a dipping effort nestle into the goals. Mikayla Maguire and Scarlett O’Connor were in fine form in the attack, between them they registered 13points in the hour, they both hit another one each to extend the lead, 3-7 to 0-4.
Maguirebridge ventured forward but a great piece of recovery play by Arlene Furey kept out a goal. Belcoo worked the ball back upfield through Niamh McAloon and Crona Higgins before Sam Martin registered a goal. Belcoo then hit three points in as many minutes, Scarlett O’Connor and two from Mikayla Maguire. By the interval, two more goals were scored, Sam Martin sidestepping the keeper to score before Danielle McLaughlin powered in an unstoppable drive to the roof of the net. Half time 6-10 to 0-4.
Eimear Gray cuts infield to set up a goal for Rachel Nolan in the second half
Belcoo made two changes at the break, Sam Martin and Rhianne McGuinness were replaced by Eimear Gray and Rachel Nolan. Maguiresbridge worked the ball downfield for a penalty from the throw up and score the goal but Belcoo would soon take control once more. Mikayla Maguire was moved to midfield and continued to get on loads of possession, a strong run seen her register her sides first point of the half four minutes in after Rachel Nolan had won back the ball and gave it to O’Connor who assist Maguire’s score.
Cara Gray who is a defender by trade was moved to the forward line for a 15minute spell, she was to register 1-6 in that time. The first point was soon followed by a very good Danielle McLaughlin goal, she claimed the kickout showing great hands before moving forward and finding the top right corner of the net.
There was a lengthy delay following an injury to the impressive Maguiresbridge goalkeeper, she was forced off, we wish her well.
Scarlett O'Connor ships a tackle and moves forward for Belcoo
Belcoo camped in the Maguriesbridge half of the field following the resumption of play. Rachel Nolan pointed, Cara Gray hit two before Eimear Gray and Cara Gray combined to set up Nolan’s first goal.
Cara Gray hit two more points either side of a Scarlett O’Connor point before Crona Higgins got in the act with a great run and pointed finish. Cara Gray would then hit 1-1 before being moved to goals as Riona Keaney came outfield and soon added a point herself.
Crona Higgins added 1-2 to her tally while Scarlett O’Connor drove through for two more points, Rachel Nolan registered two late goals with the final score of the game coming from Eimear Gray.

Belcoo opened the scoring on 3minutes when Paul McGrath pointed a 40metre free kick. A great long range score followed soon after from Daryll Kelly after McGrath and Shane McCabe combined to create the opening.
Eoin Shiels was bombing forward, Belcoo were dominate in the middle third and the ball kept going into the forward line as Aughadrumsee struggled for a foothold. Belcoo soon had their first goal as Ciaran Flaherty capitalised on some ponderous defending to rattle the net.
There was 9minutes on the clock when Stephen Flynn registered his sides opening score from a placed ball. A fabulous run and finish by Dean McDermott pushed his side 1-3 to 0-1 ahead but Belcoo would kick three bad wides before an equally impressive run and score from Stephen Flynn seen him cut the deficit back to four points.
Matthew McAloon would riggle free on 20minutes and tuck the ball into the bottom left corner while a 26th minute goal from Ciaran Flaherty moved Belcoo into a commanding lead, 3-3 to 0-2. Tom O’Hara and Eddie Courtney pointed for Aughadrumsee before Shane McCabe clipped over a neat point. The final score of the half came from Stephen Flynn and at the break Belcoo led 3-4 to 0-5.
Paul McGrath fields a kickout during Friday's Championship Replay in Brewster Park
Belcoo will not want to relive the first 10minutes of the second half for it was dreadful. Possession coughed up, misplaced passes, silly concession of frees, mad stuff. Darren Kearns and Eoghan McCabe registered points from play to put 6 between the sides.
It took 12minutes for Belcoo to get of the mark in this half, Philip Leonard won a good ball out in front and drilled a pass into Ciaran Flaherty who had Paul McGrath coming through the middle, Flaherty popped the ball up to McGrath who fired over on the left foot.
Four minutes later a long run down the right wing by McGrath seen him cut in and float over another left footed score, the ship had been steadied. 3-6 to 0-7 the O’Rahilly’s were back in control.
Over the closing quarter Aughadrumsee would outscore Belcoo three to one. They needed goals though but only threatened once, James McGrath tipping a driven shot by Dale Crudden over the bar. Ciaran Flaherty gathered, turned and angled over an excellent point in response for Belcoo before two late frees were nothing more than consolation efforts for the beaten side who now face Newtownbutler in a Championship Relegation Fixture this Saturday at 3pm in Lisnaskea.
Team: James McGrath, Michael McGourty, Niall McGovern, Barry McGovern, Eoin Shiels, Niall Leonard, Dean McDermott (0-1), Christopher Leonard, Paul McGrath (0-3), Conor McAloon, Shane McCabe (0-1), Daryll Kelly (0-1), Matthew McAloon (1-0), Ciaran Flaherty (2-1), Gerard McHugh.

Aug 15, 2019 - Senior Ladies Record League Win Over Irvinestown
SENIOR LEAGUE DIVISION 2: Belcoo 8-14 v 2-2 Irvinestown
Belcoo Senior Ladies recorded what is only their second league victory of the season on Wednesday night when they beat Irvinestown 8-14 to 2-2. The victory moves them up into 4th place in the league and with just one team getting relegated, they’ve moved into a good position to secure safety in their first season in Division 2 with three games to play.
The O’Rahilly’s had a great chance to open the scoring from the throw up as Collette Rice ran in but fired straight at the visiting goalkeeper. The hosts were on the scoreboard after 90seconds when captain Stacey McCabe fired over the opening point of the game. A first goal followed soon after, Aine Barrett snapped up a break ball and fed Elaine Maguire, her pass into Donna Feeley skit off the wet surface with Feeley beating the keeper to the loose ball and poking it soccer style into the net.
Irvinestown hit their first goal to cut the deficit to one point but Belcoo were beginning to find their stride, Crona Higgins had an excellent half at wing back with Aine Barrett and Eimear Higgins getting on a lot of ball. Belcoo worked the ball downfield and Elaine Maguire duly slotted the ball over the bar. Michelle Cullen claimed the kickout and slipped Collette Rice through one on one, she fired over the bar for a point but 60seconds later, Eimear Higgins and Michelle Cullen combined to send Rice through on goal again, this time she found the net, 2-3 to 1-0 after 10minutes.
Irvinestown had made a few forays forward but Leona McNulty was on hand to read the danger while Linda McGovern showed safe hands between the sticks on two occasions. The O’Rahilly’s kicked four points in the next 10minutes. They had two good goal chances in this period, Donna Feeley’s efforts however flashing across the goalmouth.
Elaine Maguire kicked the first of these points on 13minutes. Aine Barrett then chased 30yards downfield after an opponent before making a superb turnover, she picked out Collette Rice with pass and Rice ran in to split the posts. Joan Rice did some great work on the right wing to win back a ball as the O’Rahilly’s worked the ball from back to front for their next point. Rice found Eimear Higgins, Aine Barrett was next to get possession before offloading to Michelle Cullen who did likewise to Collette Rice and another point was the outcome.
The aforementioned trio of Higgins, Barrett and Cullen would all be involved in the next score, Cullen playing the final crossfield ball into Donna Feeley who knocked over a good point. 2-7 to 1-0.
Irvinestown had what proved their most profitable few minutes of the contest as they hit a quick goal and point to bring the game back to 6points, 2-7 to 2-1 with 23minutes on the clock. These scores were the wake up call the O’Rahilly’s required. They would finish the half strongly.
A good move between Feeley, Barrett and Cullen seen Collette Rice advance on goal and confidently find the net. Michelle Cullen pointed a free while the Higgins sisters combined for the next score, Crona bringing the ball forward and Eimear thumping over from distance.
Leona McNulty made a strong challenge to win back possession in the full back line, Seana Feeley took the ball forward, she found Aine Barrett who found Collette Rice and a good ball into Donna Feeley seen her race round her marker and score a goal. Within a minute Belcoo hand another three pointer, a long mazy run from Elaine Maguire seen her drill a shot against the post, Aine Barrett was quickest to react to the loose ball, sidestep a defender and drill low into the net. Half Time 5-9 v 2-1.
The second half was a low key affair, the highlight, Linda McGovern’s wonderful double save early in the half to deny a goal. Belcoo would score five points in the first 15minutes of the half, Collette Rice (2), Aine Barrett and Donna Feeley (2).
The O’Rahilly’s had made several changes, Kelly Connolly, Rhianne McGuinness, Tamara Dolan, Aoife Keaney and Mikayla Maguire all getting good game time. Donna Feeley would hit a 50th minute goal while Mikayla Maguire netted the last goal after a strong Aoife Keaney run. With the final kick of the contest, Irvinestown pointed a free.
