Aug 19, 2017 - Reserves Into Championship Semi Final

RESERVE 'B' CHAMPIONSHIP: Belcoo 2-11 v 1-7 Derrygonnelly

The Reserves booked a place in the Championship Semi Final with a 2-11 to 1-7 win over Derrygonnelly this evening in Kinawley. Having put themselves in a commanding position at the interval they struggled for long periods of the second half as the Harps battled their way back into the tie but a late rally seen them advance to the next round. 

 Brian Cox under a bit of pressure during this evenings victory

Things went well for the O'Rahilly's in the first 30minutes as they led 1-7 to 0-1 at the break. James McGourty opening the scoring having got on the end of a patient bit of play to angle over from the right wing. Brian Cox, who was at the hub of all his sides best work in the middle of the park, worked a one two to clip over another good point before Niall Cullen and Seimi Rafferty combined on the left to create a goal for Gary Maguire who fired to the net. 1-2 to no score 13minutes in. 

Rafferty was heavily involved for Belcoo before being forced off coming to half time with a hamstring injury. He was to feed Niall Cullen for two well taken scores while a great move should have seen Gary Maguire net a second goal but the Harps ‘keeper was off his line to capitalise on some hesitancy from the forward.

 Seimi Rafferty was on the ball plenty before going off injured

Derrygonnelly broke downfield and created a goal chance of their own but the attacker fired straight at Gary Doherty. Ruairi Fee would open the Harps account with a fine point from play on 24minutes but Belcoo finished the half with three more. 

Gary Maguire with the first after Brian Cox had sprayed a racking crossfield ball into James Gillespie who gathered and slipped to Maguire. Ian Corrigan provided the assist for Maguire's next point while Brendan McPartland broke from defence to play a few one twos with Brian Cox before Cox drilled over. 1-7 to 0-1 at the break. 

 Ryan McGovern breaks from the defence

Derrygonnelly would completely dominate things for 15minutes in the second half. Belcoo couldn't get out from the back and continued to lose the ball all too regularly. Declan Leonard though remained steadfast at full back in the face of the Harps onslaught. Four in a row from the Harps had them back in the contest and substitute Jonathan McGurn went close with a goal chance as it moved into the final quarter at 1-7 to 0-5. 

Belcoo awoke from their slumber and worked a point from Gary Maguire before they put together their best move of the night to register a second goal. Martin Corrigan making a great turnover in the defence. The ball with went through the hands of James McAloon, Brian Cox and Gary Maguire before Ian Corrigan came off the shoulder to coolly float the ball into the top left hand corner giving the keeper no chance to save. 

 Brendan McPartland takes Belcoo upfield

A neat one two between Aidan McGrath and Maguire seen the latter land a point but the Harps kept plugging away and were to hit a quick 1-2 however two late points from Niall Cullen secured the win. 

The downer on the night was injuries to Rafferty, Ryan McGovern, Martin Corrigan and James Gillespie who all had to be replaced before the finish. 

Team: Gary Doherty, Brendan McPartland, Declan Leonard, Martin Corrigan, Barry McGovern, Ryan McGovern, Michael McGourty, Brian Cox (0-2), Gerard Mellor, James McGourty (0-1), Ian Corrigan (1-0), Niall Cullen (0-4), James Gillespie, Gary Maguire (1-4), Seimi Rafferty. Subs James McAloon, Daire Keaney, Aidan McGrath and Chris McCaffrey. 

Aug 17, 2017 - U16s Complete Sections With Another Win

U16 Section C: Belcoo 7-21 v 1-3 Enniskillen Gaels B

Belcoo completed their sectional programme with a big win over Enniskillen B at MacNean Park on Thursday evening, running out winners 7-21 to 1-3. They await divisional fixtures now having won 4 of their 6 group games.

 Josh Killilea was the architect of several of his sides scores this evening whilst covering an serious amount of ground in the hour

The O'Rahilly's got the scoreboard moving early with Lawrence McKeown at the hub of the scores before being withdrawn on 20minutes. The aforementioned McKeown hit two points in the opening minutes and soon the hosts worked a first goal. 

Jamie Ray's kickout found Oran McCann, he fed wing back Emmett McGuinness who picked out Lawrence McKeown on the left wing, drove in and slipped Oisin O'Loughlin through for a well taken goal. 

McKeown ran in for his first goal while the next kickout was broken down by Oran McCann to Cormac McHugh, Josh Killilea got on the ball and picked out Patrick Martin with a great diagonal ball, Martin duly slotted over the ball over the bar. 

Lawrence McKeown would bang in 2-2 in a matter of minutes. The hard working Josh Killilea the supplier of many of these scores having got on a load of possession throughout the first period, while Mark Ferguson burst upfield to setup point. Emmett McGuinness then got forward to point after another good ball by Killilea. Belcoo were going well having pinned back the visitors and Cormac McHugh got onto a Lawrence McKeown pass to net a goal on 20minutes to put Belcoo into a commanding position 5-6 to no score. 

 Cormac McHugh applies pressure on his opponents in this evenings contest

Enniskillen were trying hard and were rewarded with a point. By the interval, Patrick Martin had popped up with three good points in a row finishing off well worked team moves with Gerry Nolan firing over a fine effort from a Dara Flanagan pass while Killilea arrowed over the final score of the half from the right side for a 5-11 to 0-1 half time score.

Belcoo continued to play some decent football at times and knocked over well taken scores in the second half. Dara Flanagan, Oisin O'Loughlin and Oran McCann were to land early points while Cormac McHugh raced in and found the top corner with a great finish. 

Defensively Belcoo were doing well. From the outset Mark Ferguson was in fine form, strong and aggressive out in front winning ball. Ben McNulty had another good hour at full, then wing back with Oisin Leonard continuing his excellent season at centre back, pushing up to register two points by the finish. 

Enniskillen and a young fella well known to Belcoo, Ross Bogue rattled 1-2 while we needed Jamie Ray to make 3 good saves in the closing quarter. Dara Flanagan would knock over two points. Emmett McGuinness and Gerry Nolan also the marksmen while Oran McCann continued to battle and work hard with Nolan, Killilea, Conor McKeown  and Jack Greene all driving things on to the very end while Dara Flanagan completed a great run with a well taken goal late on. 

Training continues Tuesday at 7pm as we prepare for the upcoming Divisions. 

Team (13 a side) Jamie Ray, Ben McNulty, Mark Ferguson, Emmett McGuinness (0-2), Oisin Leonard (0-2), Patrick Martin (0-4), Cormac McHugh (2-0), Oran McCann (0-1), Conor McKeown, Oisin O'Loughlin (1-1), Gerry Nolan (0-3), Lawrence McKeown (3-4), Josh Killilea (0-1).

Aug 15, 2017 - U16s Win Goal Fest In Maguiresbridge

U16 Section C: Maguiresbridge 5-7 v 13-9 Belcoo

It was a goal fest in Maguiresbridge this evening with 18 of them being registered as Belcoo recovered from a slow start to win 13-9 to 5-7 in this Under 16 encounter. 

The Bridge were 1-4 up by the 12th minute before Belcoo registered their first score. Luca McCusker had ran 60yards through the Belcoo defence and fired in a 4th minute goal while he and Tommy McGrory knocked over points. 

 Oisin Leonard brings his side forward in the first half

Belcoo though eventually sorted themselves and put together a good move that led to Lawrence McKeown banging in the first of his eight goals of the night. Conor McKeown made a great run to collect a well placed kickout from Jamie Ray out on the left wing. Oisin Leonard, Emmett McGuinness and Oisin O'Loughlin well all involved in a slick passage of play that created the chance which McKeown dispatched to the net when through on goal. 

Lawrence McKeown was to rattle two more goals in as many minutes before Maguiresbridge hit their second goal. 2-4 to 3-0 the home side led after 18mins.

Belcoo tightened defensively over the final 10minutes of the half, Oisin Leonard and Cormac McHugh turning over some great ball with Emmett McGuinness and Gerry Nolan making blocks while Ben McNulty was having a super game in the full back line, cutting out attacks and dispossessing his man. 

 Oran McCann about to pick out a forward pass

Lawrence McKeown slotted in a fourth goal after a poor kickout and the points soon began to flow for the O’Rahilly’s. A first we flag of the evening was raised on 19minutes, Josh Killilea looped round for a recycled pass to slot over a neat score before Oran McCann curled one over from the left side. 

Cormac McHugh flicked a high ball into the net as Patrick Martin's effort dropped into the area. Maguiresbridge were to respond with Tommy McGrory pointing but Belcoo remained on top coming to the interval. Two quick points by Lawrence McKeown were followed up with a goal by younger brother Conor who arrived late at the back post to gather and shoot to the net. Half time 6-4 to 2-5. 

 Cormac McHugh holds tight as he plots his next move

Maguiresbridge penned back Belcoo for a full three minutes at the start of the second half but some latch ditch defending by substitute Dara Flanagan, Mark Ferguson and Jamie Ray between the sticks kept the hosts at bay. The O'Rahilly's broke downfield with Emmett McGuinness and Conor McKeown who set Cormac McHugh away for a drilled point. Lawrence McKeown kicked two more points having been supplied good passes by Patrick Martin and Conor McKeown before the goal trail was hit again. 

Jack Greene fired in a great goal on 38minutes however the hosts went downfield and won a penalty which Luca McCusker duly dispatched past Ray for 7-7 to 3-5 at that juncture. 

Josh Killilea would knock in the next goal after good work by the McKeown brothers while he jinked in from the right wing to slot a good point. The bridge kept plugging away and Odhran McGoldrick went on a long run before firing to the net while the hosts found another three pointer soon after. 8-8 to 5-5. 

 Lawrence McKeown races in for one of his second half goals

Belcoo though powered away from the home side between the 40th & 50th minute. Lawrence hitting four goals in quick succession before Oran McCann's attempt at a point dipped under the crossbar. While Maguiresbridge did register two more points before the finish, McKeown accounted for the final point of the contest five minutes from the end. 

Up next Belcoo host Enniskillen B on Thursday evening, players to be at the pitch for 6.50pm, throw in 7.30pm. 

Team (13 a side). Jamie Ray, Ben McNulty, Mark Ferguson, Emmett McGuinness, Oisin Leonard, Gerry Nolan, Cormac McHugh (1-1), Patrick Martin, Oisin O'Loughlin, Oran McCann (1-1), Conor McKeown (1-0), Josh Killilea (1-2), Lawrence McKeown (8-5). Subs Dara Flanagan, Jack Greene (1-0) 

Aug 9, 2017 - Devenish Win Tight U12 Derby Encounter

U12 Section B: Devenish 5-13 v 3-12 Belcoo

This derby fixture in Garrison turned out to be a highly entertaining contest with the home team edging through by five points in the final quarter. Devenish opened the scoring when they split the posts in the second minute. This was followed by a prolific period from the O’Rahilly’s with Michael Burns finding the back of the net followed by two points from the boot of Eoin Corrigan. Sam Martin had a terrific game in mid-field with a work-rate that proved consistent for the entire match. From this point though Devenish rallied and scored 1-4 without reply, finishing the first quarter with a 3 point lead.

  Riona Keaney had a good hour in defence for Belcoo

The second quarter started with the home side scoring a well worked goal before Michael Burns found the net for the sky blues with the left foot following some good work by Nathan Carroll-Magee. Nathan McGovern was working hard to recover long balls into the forward line and was rewarded with a good point. Thomas Parker was unlucky not to find the net with a low drilled shot which was blocked at point blank range from the home keeper. There was only a point between the sides Devenish leading 2-7 to 2-6 at the end of the second quarter.

In the last couple of matches the third quarter has been the most disappointing for the young O'Rahilly's, but in this game they were determined not to let the game slip from their grasp so easily and played some of their best football, helped by some fine saves from Lorcan Leonard in goals. Riona Keaney and Rachel Nolan were a reliable force in the back line displaying many battles for the ball with Kayce Sweeney doing well when introduced to the field. Sinead Barrett was winning plenty of ball in the half back line with some well worked moves ending in points scored by Michael Burns, Eve Barrett and Sam Martin. The quarter finished level at 2-9 a-piece, but for some good saves and errant shooting from Belcoo they should have gone into the last quarter with a few points to spare.

The last quarter saw the home side start strongly with two unanswered points. The O’Rahillys were tiring at this point and the fresh legs of Rhys Ray, Lisa Lavery and Emilie McCallion were introduced, these younger team members eager to prove themselves on the pitch. Michael Burns clipped another over the bar from a 45. After winning the kickout, Belcoo worked the ball for Rhys Ray to put a powerful shot in the back of the net, the visitors now ahead 3-10(16) to 2-11(15) with 10 minutes to play. However, Devenish rallied again managing to score 3-2 and with time getting short the two points from Michael Burns which followed were not enough to recover. Despite the defeat, this was a much improved performance for the young O’Rahilly’s.

Team: Lorcan Leonard, Rachel Nolan, Riona Keaney, Nathan Carroll-Magee, Sinead Barrett, Sam Martin(0-1), Michael Burns(2-7), Nathan McGovern(0-2), Eoin Corrigan(0-2), Thomas Parker, Eve Barrett(0-1). Subs- Lisa Lavery, Emilie McCallion, Kayce Sweeney, Rhys Ray(1-0)
