Jul 28, 2015 - U12s Make It Two Wins From Two
U12s: Section B: Erne Gaels 4-3 (11) v 6-13 (25) Belcoo
Belcoo U12’s maintained their winning start to the season following another tight contest against a good Erne Gaels side, the O’Rahilly’s finishing strongly to secure the victory on a 6-13 to 4-3 scoreline. There was some fine displays all over the field for the winners as they continue to work hard for one another.
The O’Rahilly’s were in front from the off as Josh Killilea was on target from play within 90seconds. The dangerous forward would carry the game to Erne Gaels throughout the hour and a good block in the fifth minute by Killilea seen him win possession and fire over a second point. Two more points would follow from the same player during this quarter, the first a free and the second a fine move involving Jack Greene, Conor McKeown and Aine Barrett before the latter fed Killilea to point.
Erne Gaels would register a goal (worth 2pts at this level) in the 11th minute of the quarter but Belcoo had seen a lot of the ball without adding to their tally. Defensively the O’Rahilly’s were solid, Jamie Ray commanding in the wee square with Niamh McAloon and Sean Boylan doing well in the full back line. Patrick Martin was sweeping up and reading the game very well from wing back.
Into the second quarter and within 60seconds Belcoo had hit two points, an Oisin O’Loughlin free was punched over the bar by Conor McKeown and Killilea was again on target but Erne Gaels found the net with another good move. 0-6 to 2-0 (4) with 20minutes on the clock.
Goals continued to flow and Belcoo responded with their first, a dipping long range effort from Oisin O’Loughlin dropping under the bar however Erne Gaels responded again with a close range finish to keep just two between the sides. Every ball was being fiercely contested, Emmett McGuinness was throwing himself into blocks while Ciana McGrath was continuing to press forward and make good use of the ball. Aoife Keaney and Áine Barrett were providing good link play with Jack Greene and Killilea as scores continued to be taken.
A Josh Killilea point was sandwiched between two Erne Gaels points but coming to half time the O’Rahilly’s took a big step forward with a quickfire 1-1. The ball was worked well out of the defence to O’Loughlin in midfield, his ball over the top released Jack Greene who crashed a shot to the net via the underside of the bar. Emmett McGuinness joined the attack to fire over a point after some patient build up play and at half time Belcoo held a four point lead, 2-8 (12) to 3-2 (8).
It was in Quarter 3 where the O’Rahilly’s doubled their four point advantage to eight by the end. Once more their was some great defending as the Belcoo rearguard were winning their battles, Boylan, McAloon and Ben McNulty who was introduced early in this period, cutting out Erne Gaels attacks.
Josh Killilea remained a threat and he would run through to fist an early point however Erne Gaels scored a goal on the break to leave three between the sides with 35minutes played. From here to the finish Belcoo were impressive as they worked some fine scores. Killilea and Conor McKeown combined to set up substitute Eoin Corrigan for a well taken point.
Two goals would follow, the first after the move of the night, both Barrett sisters, Áine and Sinead combined in the middle of the field with one another before Áine slipped Eoin Corrigan through on goal, the ball finding the net via the two posts. Josh Killilea would plunder a goal from close range and with three quarters played Belcoo now led 4-10 to 4-2.
In the final quarter Belcoo would outscore their tiring opposition 2-3 to 0-1. Oisin O’Loughlin was dominating the middle sector with Ciana McGrath continuing to impress, the hardworking Sinead Barrett was a lively presence in the attack with fellow debutant Eoin Corrigan providing a great outlet.
Josh Killilea had the ball in the net within 60seconds of the final quarter commencing, drilling home a well struck shot before Oisin O’Loughlin pointed a great effort an acute angle on the right wing. Aine Barrett would shake off a number of tackles before hitting a good point and Gerry Nolan, who had worked hard all evening, knocked over a point late on.
Eoin Corrigan would register his second goal with three minutes remaining while Erne Gaels sole score in this 15minute period was a free with the last kick of the game. Final Score: Erne Gaels 4-3 (11) v 6-13 (25) Belcoo.
All in all it was a fine showing from the O’Rahilly’s who stuck to their task throughout and hit the targets set pre game.
