Aug 1, 2014 - U12s Make It Two Wins From Two
U12s: Tempo 4-8 v 8-18 Belcoo
Belcoo U12 made it two wins from two as they got the better of Tempo in the final quarter to record a 8-18 to 4-8 victory. It was the hosts who made the brighter opening but at the end of each quarter the O’Rahilly’s had their noses in front.
Tempo netted within ten seconds when a high ball into the area deceived Jamie Ray in the Belcoo goals. Belcoo hit back Lawrence McKeown and Arlene Furey both pointing but Niall Fee, who was Tempo’s liveliest player, split the posts with a good score to restore Tempo’s lead on 5minutes.
Belcoo though would register three points in a row as Lawrence McKeown hit two and Oran McCann also added a neat point on 12minutes. As the first interval approached Belcoo found a goal, a slick move ended with Josh Killilea drilling a fine shot past Aaron Cassidy to leave it 1-5 to 1-1 at the changeover.
Tempo would once again register a goal from the throw up, a well worked move seen Fee fire past Ray. With the O’Rahilly’s coming under pressure Oisin O’Loughlin, who was immense throughout, was holding things together at the back alongside Ciana McGrath, Conor McKeown and Niamh McAloon who were remaining solid and winning their own battles.
Up front the O’Rahillys responded to the goal with points from Oran McCann, Emmet McGuinness, Dara Flanagan and Lawrence McKeown. Tempo’s Niall Fee added to his account with three points in a row before the hosts netted a third goal from a long range Brendan Cassidy effort for 1-9 (12) to 3-4 (10).
Belcoo would again finish the half strongly to hold a half time lead of 3-12 to 3-5. Dara Flanagan and Oran McCann pondering goals from close range while Lawrence McKeown fired over a wonderful effort from distance with Flanagan also arrowing over a fine shot.
Into a tight third quarter and it took some 10minutes for either side to register a score as both defences took charge, O’Loughlin and McGrath continued to do very well at the back for Belcoo with substitute Patrick Martin also impressing.
The first score of the period was a goal for the hardworking Arlene Furey on 40minutes which was swiftly followed a Josh Killilea goal, the tricky forward, sliding past a few tackles before slotting the ball into the net. Tempo though would hit a goal at the other end while Lawrence McKeown added a point to move Belcoo into a 10point lead by the end of the third quarter, 5-13 (23) to 4-5 (13).
Belcoo would control the last quarter as Lawrence McKeown hit three points, the first, the score of the night from near the left sideline. Dara Flanagan added 1-1 with the goal coming from a clever flick into the net. Oran McCann would hit two goals in this period, the first a fisted effort from close range while the second was a piledriver from distance. McCann would also land a point as Belcoo held Tempo to just three points in this quarter to seal a 8-18 (34) to 4-8 (16).
TEAM: Jamie Ray, Oisin O’Loughlin, Ciana McGrath, Conor McKeown, Niamh McAloon, Lawrence McKeown (0-9), Liam McAlliskey, Oran McCann (3-3), Arlene Furey (1-1), Gerry Nolan, Josh Killilea (2-0).

Jul 27, 2014 - Juniors Lose Championship Replay
JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP SEMI FINAL REPLAY: Belcoo 0-9 v 2-10 St. Joseph’s
Belcoo failed to reach the Championship decider at the second attempt as St. Joseph’s capitalised on defensive errors to book a place with Aughadrumsee in the Final.
The game, once again played in Garrison, followed a remarkably similar pattern to the original as Belcoo began fast once more, this time racing into a five nil lead before St. Joseph’s began their fightback, a high ball going in over Jack O’Dolan’s head in both halves, the telling scores unfortunately for the Belcoo netminder.
The O’Rahilly’s had the wind in their favour in the first period. Aaron Dolan kicked two good points from play early on, Gary Maguire added two frees and Philip Leonard also pointed a free it was 0-5 to no score and Belcoo looked set to dominate.
St. Joseph’s first score would be a goal, O’Dolan beaten by a ball which dropped under the crossbar. Over the remainder of the half the two sides shared four points. Gary Maguire again tapping over a free while Aaron Dolan register from play to leave it 0-7 to 1-2 in Belcoo’s favour.
The O’Rahilly’s were dealt a blow at the interval as Ian Corrigan, who sustained a nasty facial injury was deemed unfit to play any more part in the game, it transpires he has broken his cheekbone in 3 places, ending his season. We wish him well.
The second period was only minutes old when Aaron Dolan was sent off for picking up two quick yellow cards, reducing his side to 14men. Struggling against the elements and now a man down St. Joseph’s were fit to take advantage knocking over a string of scores to move into the lead.
Belcoo could only muster two second half points from Ronan Meehan and Gary Maguire as St. Joseph’s took control before securing victory with a second goal ten minutes from time.

Jul 25, 2014 - Minors Well Beaten In Championship Final
MINOR B CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL: Irvinestown 8-15 v 1-9 Belcoo
Belcoo minors suffered a heavy defeat in the Minor B Championship Final at Maguiresbridge on Thursday evening, going down 8-15 to 1-9 in the end. Irvinestown were the better side but the concession of a large number of soft goals didn't help the O'Rahilly's cause while the final score didn't tell the whole tale. A very young Belcoo side were competitive for 45minutes in this game however during the last quarter Irvinestown took control and hit an unanswered 4-6 to run out handsome winners.
The winners made the early running and led 1-3 to no score with just 4minutes on the clock. Paul Wallace was completely unmarked 20yards from goal and confidently dispatched a shot past Andrew Ferguson while Conor McQuaid, Ryan Keane and Oliver Hughes all added points.
Belcoo enjoyed a good 10minute spell with James Gillespie hitting two points and Gary Doherty adding a fine long distance effort after some great work by Eoin Shiels in defence. Matthew McAloon had a one one one chance but the Irvinestown netminder TJ McMulkin beat away the drive and Colm Furey put the rebound wide.
By the midway stage Belcoo had clawed there way back into the game having stemmed what was a rampant Irvinestown forward line in the early minutes. 1-4 to 0-3 at this juncture. With the half drawing to a close, Irvinestown netted a fortunate second goal, an effort for a point hit the post and dropped kindly to an unmarked Conor McQuaid to tap into the unguarded goal.
From the next kick out Steafan Allen won possession, drove through the defence and found the net with a well taken shot. It was a disastrous few minutes for Belcoo but to their credit they responded well. Matthew McAloon fired over a 26th minute point from a free before James Gillespie registered Belcoo's only three pointer. A long sideline kick from Gary Doherty was gathered by Daire Keaney, he in turn fed Gillespie who cut in from the left and found the far corner of the net. McAloon would land another point to cut the deficit to seven but the O'Rahilly's good work was undone when a tame effort from distance for a point bounced over goalkeeper Ferguson's shoulder and into the net. Half time 4-6 to 1-5.
Irvinestown emerged in the second half and knocked over three quick points before Belcoo would camp in their opponents half some 10minutes, having got on top in the middle sector. Aaron McTiernan was winning breaks and creating attacks which yielded scores, the majority from frees, a Irvinestown hauled down Belcoo as they went looking goals. James Gillespie with the first free while Matthew McAloon added two more.
Some half chances at goals yielded nothing and despite their period of pressure they made no dent in the Irvinestown lead. The winners looked like getting goals every time they went forward and during the final quarter they did so
Michael Doherty would land Belcoo's final point in the 44th minute to leave the score at 4-9 to 1-9. What in sued was a goal feast as Belcoo's challenge faded. On two occasions high balls from Paul Wallace dropped in over Ferguson's head for goals while a misplaced kick from defender Jonathan Stewart went straight to Ryan Keane who ran in another goal past Ferguson while Michael Mahon also netted.
Points were added by Oliver Hughes, Sean McMulkin, Don Kelly, Conor McQuaid and Dillan McDonagh as Irinestown finished in style running out deserving winners. For Belcoo James McAloon tried hard in defence while Eoin Shiels, Gary Doherty, Matthew McAloon and James Gillespie did likewise.
TEAM: Andrew Ferguson, James McAloon, Jonathan Stewart, Ger McHugh, Eoin Shiels, Aaron McTiernan, Michael McGourty, Gary Doherty (0-1), Matthew McAloon (0-4, 3f), Michael Doherty (0-1), Colm Furey, Daire Keaney, James Gillespie (1-3, 1f).
Jul 24, 2014 - U12s Make Winning Start in Brookeboro
UNDER 12s: Brookeboro 1-6 v 7-17 Belcoo
Belcoo u12s made a winning start to their league campaign on an extremely warm Wednesday evening running out winners 7-17 to 1-6. Four quarters of 15minutes were played with goals at this level counting for 2pts instead of 3 at other grades.
The young O'Rahillys produced fine displays all over the field and by the end of quarter 1, they led 2-3 to 1-2. Lawrence McKeown had rattled an early goal and point while the lively Josh Killilea danced round the Brookeboro keeper to finish a neat move with Arlene Furey and Oran McCann accounting for other scores.
The second quarter seen goalkeeper Jamie Ray produce some wonderful saves, four or five certain goals were kept out while at the other end Belcoo added 3-3 to their tally. Oran McCann with two quick goals while Lawrence McKeown again found the net and knocked over two good points from play. Liam McAlliskey also split the posts from distance in the period which seen Belcoo move 5-6 to 1-4 ahead by the end of quarter 2.
The third quarter seen Brookeboro fail to score. Some excellent defending from the impressive pair of Oisin O'Loughlin and Niamh McAloon keeping out the hosts while Josh Killilea continued to use the ball well up front as did Ciana McGrath. In this quarter Oran McCann, Emmet McGuinness and Conor McKeown pointed for Belcoo.
The visitors remained in control during the last period outscoring their opponents 2-8 to 0-2. Arlene Furey confidently tucked away a well taken goal while Emmet McGuinness got forward to register 1-3. Josh Killilea fisted a point with Lawrence McKeown adding two more before Niamh McAloon and Aine Barrett knocked over good points as Belcoo ran out winners.
Team: Jamie Ray, Oisin O'Loughlin, Ciana McGrath, Conor McKeown (0-1), Aine Barrett (0-1), Lawrence McKeown (2-5), Liam McAlliskey (0-1), Oran McCann (2-2), Arlene Furey (1-1), Gerry Nolan, Josh Killilea (1-1), Niamh McAloon (0-1), Emmet McGuinness (1-4).
Elsewhere, Hugh Kelly, Patrick Martin, Ben McNulty, Stephen Kelly, Sean Boylan, Cian White, Jack Greene, Daniel O'Connor and Caitli McAlliskey put up a good showing against a strong Brookeboro side. Trailing by a point after quarter one, Belcoo tired near the end allowing Brookeboro come out on top.
