Aug 28, 2016 - Seniors Exit Championship At First Hurdle
Intermediate Championship: Lisnaskea 0-14 v 1-9 Belcoo
The Seniors produced a desperately disappointing hour as they exited the Intermediate Championship at the first hurdle going down 0-14 to 1-9 to Lisnaskea on Sunday evening in Tempo.
24minutes had elapsed before the O'Rahilly's raised the white flag, by this stage Lisnaskea had a half dozen points on the board, five of which came from Daniel Kille via a mix of frees and efforts from play.
A half hearted and half paced O'Rahilly's were second to everything during the opening exchanges as Lisnaskea had runners and options aplenty.
Belcoo managed to hit four points in as many minutes when they did open their account, Aaron Dolan (2), Paul McGrath and Ciaran Flaherty on target as they got back to within two but in added time at the end of the half, the Emmet's hit two more for a 0-8 to 0-4 interval lead.
Upon the resumption Lisnaskea remained in control, keeping possession well, drawing frees and adding to their tally. Belcoo needed goals and Paul McGrath seen a goalbound effort deflected narrowly wide while Ian Corrigan blazed over for a point when well placed. Ciaran Flaherty was to tag on points for the O'Rahilly's while Christopher Leonard was ordered off for a second bookable offence before Belcoo did find a goal with just minutes remaining to make it 1-8 to 0-13. Ian Corrigan driving in following a goalmouth scramble.
Points were traded in the dying moments but another goal which would have snatched a win wasn't to come as Lisnaskea retained possession well and deservely booked a date with Kinawley in the Semi Final.
Belcoo face the Loser of Enniskillen Gaels & Tempo in an Intermediate Relegation contest. Games to be played the weekend of 9th-11th September.
Aug 25, 2016 - Under 16's Lose At Home To Irvinestown
U16 Division 3: Belcoo 8-6 v 7-13 Irvinestown
Belcoo suffered defeat in their Under 16 opener this evening going down 7-13 to 8-6 against Irvinestown in a contest devoid of any real quality. Level with five to go it was the visitors to hit 1-1 to claim the points while Belcoo are left to rue an hour littered with unforced errors as well as squandering numerous quilt edged chances in front of goal.
Irvinestown had three goals on the board inside 8minutes as they waltzed through the Belcoo defence untouched. The visitors also notched a point before Belcoo opened their account 11minutes in when a goalmouth scramble seen Ciaran Flanagan poke the ball into the net.
Lawrence McKeown would net a goal and Conor McAloon struck a point before it was back down the other end with Sean Mahon hitting three points in a row.
By the interval Belcoo rallied back to four points down with McKeown scoring at the second attempt after a fine move down the right involving Ronan Maguire and Patrick Martin. Shane Doherty landed a great point from distance and Conor McAloon knocked over from close range for 4-4 to 3-3. Belcoo though, had missed three clear goal chances in the closing moments of the half.
Mark Ferguson had a fantastic half at full back for the home team, at times, doing the job of two or three men to win back ball, secure possession and driving upfield. Shane Doherty was getting on good ball at wing forward as he was found on a number of occasions by Oran McCann's long kickouts.
The opening 60seconds outlined how the remainder of the game would go. Little to no defending, hardly a tackle made or free given as Belcoo walked in for a goal from Conor McAloon, Irvinestown doing likewise within seconds at the other end. Back upfield came Belcoo for another Lawrence McKeown goal while Irvinestown moved back the other way to land a point. 5-5 to 5-3 Irvinestown's lead was down to two.
Remarkably their wasn't a score for near 10minutes as wayward shooting, fumbles when well placed, turnovers and stray passes took centre stage.
Sean Mahon was to knock over two more points before Lawrence McKeown rattled in two goals in a minute to give Belcoo a momentary lead. Irvinestown breaking forward for their 6th goal of the evening, Conor McKevlin thumping to the net. Now with 10 to play, Belcoo 7-3 (24) v 6-7 (25) Irvinestown.
Belcoo would tie proceedings from a left wing free by Shane Doherty and then Lawrence McKeown fired in his sixth goal of the evening via the inside of the post to hoist Belcoo three clear.
Again though, the lead didn't last long. Irvinestown countered to fire over three quick points via Mahan and Jay Maguire before they hit a goal with two minutes to play and an insurance point in added time for the victory.
Games are coming thick and fast now as Belcoo are out twice next week. On Tuesday they meet Maguiresbridge in the Championship, throw in is 7pm, no venue is known as yet. On Thursday they travel to Tempo for a 7pm throw in also.
Team (13 a side). Oran McCann, Oisin Leonard, Mark Ferguson, Oisin O'Loughlin, Matthew Mulvey, Eoin Barrett, Ciaran Flanagan (1-0), Ronan Maguire, Patrick Martin, Shane Doherty (0-2), Marc Stewart, Lawrence McKeown (6-0), Conor McAloon (1-4). Sub Ben McNulty.

Aug 21, 2016 - Belcoo Just About Hang On For Important Victory
Senior League Division 1: Belcoo 2-13 v 2-12 Maguiresbridge
The supporters got their money's worth in MacNean Park on Sunday afternoon as Belcoo and Maguiresbridge served up and thrilling finale. If you were a Belcoo blue, your blood pressure was rising as the O'Rahilly's almost let slip a nine point lead due to a late ‘Bridge rally during the closing quarter to get within a point by the finish. 2-13 to 2-12 Belcoo held on for a first win in seven outings and it was a timely one at that as they finished above the visitors giving themselves two chances to avoid relegation in the upcoming playoffs. Belcoo will meet Devenish, Maguiresbridge will meet Tempo.
In the earlier exchanges the Belcoo quickly moved into the lead. Paul McGrath landed a left footed effort from the left wing after a quickly taken free by Ciaran Flaherty however Daniel Teague matched that effort at the other end.
Belcoo would register goal number one on 5minutes as Ian Corrigan and Paul McGrath combined for the latter to slip Niall Cullen in to fire low into the corner. McGrath would add two frees with Daniel Teague knocking over two from play while Sean Corrigan tagged on a free to leave Belcoo 1-3 to 0-4 up by the midway stage of the half.
Jonathan Feeley would point a free after Ian Corrigan was fouled on the left before Belcoo worked a neat move to record a penalty. Declan Leonard done well to win the break ball before Christopher Leonard fed Niall Cullen who was brought down. Jonathan Feeley penalty kick struck the butt of the post before being cleared upfield.
Maguiresbridge would add two more points before the interval from Matthew Teague and a Corrigan free however Belcoo finished on top hitting three late scores from Ciaran Flaherty, Niall Cullen and James Stewart, the last a collectors item from defender Stewart who arrowed it over via the outside of the boot after a slick passing move. Half Time. Belcoo 1-7 v 0-6 Maguiresbridge.
As the rain began to fall in the second half Belcoo were again sharp from the blocks. Ciaran Flaherty cutting infield to knock over a point before Paul McGrath carried the ball from inside is own half and slotted it past the 'Bridge goalkeeper.
The O'Rahilly's were now on a roll and both Flaherty and McGrath added points from play with Sean Corrigan's free the sole response. Belcoo now up by nine points at 2-11 to 0-8 and looking comfortable.
What in sued from here to the finish came from nowhere, Belcoo got sloppy, struggled to win possession and get out of their half while Maguiresbridge kicking into another gear. A goal ignited the visitors before more frees from Corrigan cut the deficit to four. 2-11 to 1-10. Belcoo managed to muster a response with points from Paul McGrath and Barry McGovern but Maguiresbridge had their tails up and kept driving forward.
James McGrath was to make two good saves to deny goals before a second goal was registered by Ciaran Corrigan, 2-13 to 2-10 with minutes to play. Amongst the frantic final quarter the hosts almost added goals themselves, Niall Leonard slipping having been put through by McGovern while Dean McDermott cracked a shot against the crossbar.
Belcoo were fit to deny goal chances at the other end in the dying moments, Corrigan though, clipping over two more frees to leave the minimum between them however Belcoo would win the next kickout and get forward to end the game in the Bridge half of the field.
That’s all for another day though as it’s likely the Championship will be run off in it’s entirety before the Relegation Playoff’s take place. Belcoo play their Intermediate Championship Quarter Final against Lisnaskea, next Sunday 28th August at 7pm in Tempo.
Team: James McGrath, Ryan Leonard, James Stewart (0-1), Gavin Leonard, Declan Leonard, Barry McGovern (0-1), Ryan McGovern, Niall Leonard, Christopher Leonard, Dean McDermott, Paul McGrath (1-5), Niall Cullen (1-1), Ian Corrigan, Ciaran Flaherty (0-4), Jonathan Feeley (0-1). Sub used Aidan Leonard.
