Apr 20, 2019 - Senior Men Win High Scoring Contest In Brookeborough
Senior League Division 2: Brookeborough 2-11 v 1-16 Belcoo
It was a bit of a shootout on Saturday evening in Brookeborough as the hosts and Belcoo put on a real ding dong affair. The sides level numerous times over the hour but it was the O’Rahilly’s who ground out the victory with two late points to remain joint top of the league in the early stages of the season.
Points were traded from the outset and by the 15th minute it was 1-4 to 0-7. Belcoo had six different scorers of cleverly crafted efforts. Matthew McAloon, Philip Leonard, Dean McDermott, Michael McGourty, Niall Cullen and two fine strikes from wing back Aaron Dolan.
Conor Goodwin and Aidan Boyle did most of the scoring for their side over the hour while Mickey Rice broke from wing back and got on the end of a quickly taken free kick and netted.
Belcoo responded to the three pointer with one of their own as Dean McDermott was fouled for a penalty which Philip Leonard duly converted low to the right corner. Leonard then added a point from play before the hosts hit a quick 1-1 coming to half time, the goal from Damien Curran who reacted quickest to a free that hit the post and dropped into the penalty area. A late Niall Cullen point levelled the game again by half time, Brookeborough 2-6 v 1-9 Belcoo.
Things didn’t change much in the second period, tit for tat, point for point, it was end to end, forward lines definitely on top. The hosts were reliant on free kicks in this period while Belcoo continued to work the ball well and slot over some neat points. Aaron Dolan, Matthew McAloon and Paul McGrath on target, these had been matched by three Conor Goodwin frees.
Paul McGrath would edge his side ahead 8minutes from time but Goodwin and Boyle soon had the home side in front while a bit of fisty cuffs went on close to the Brookeborough dugout. The hosts a point up and looking to see the game out. Belcoo had other ideas, Christoper Leonard powered through for a point to level. Jonathan Feeley’s first involvement from the bench was to slot over a nice point on the left side while Dean McDermott angled over an excellent score after a flowing move down the right to give his side the two point win on a 1-16 to 2-11 scoreline.
Team (15 a side) Gary Doherty, Martin Corrigan, Barry McGovern, Brendan McPartland, Dean McDermott (0-2), Eoin Shiels, Aaron Dolan (0-3), Brian Cox, Christopher Leonard (0-1), Michael McGourty (0-1), Paul McGrath (0-2), Niall Cullen (0-2), Ronan Meehan, Philip Leonard (1-2), Matthew McAloon (0-2).

Apr 20, 2019 - U15s Undone By Gaels Goals
U15 Boys Division 2: Belcoo 3-8 v 7-3 Enniskillen Gaels
It was a case of goals wins games this morning as Enniskillen rattled the net seven times while Belcoo had played some excellent football in spells and would surely have deserved something for their efforts over the hour.
The O’Rahilly’s made a superb opening to the contest hitting five fine points in the first seven minutes. Good direct play with first time touches and lay-off’s going to the hand, Jamie Ray (3), Eoin Corrigan and Michael Burns all on target.
Sean Boylan won some ball inside early on with Thomas Parker getting is hands on ball and helping make some turnovers. Josh Killilea done what he does, well positioned to cut out attacks, clever passes, plays and always finding a sky blue jersey from centre back he was dictating the game while Jamie Ray was putting in a powerful and all action display around centrefield.
The Gaels hadn’t managed to get forward at all during the first ten minutes but when they did, the soon fired in 1-1 to reduce the deficit to a single point. Jamie Ray responded with a goal on 14minute, fisting to the net after Eoin Corrigan had done well down the left wing but Belcoo wouldn’t score during the remaining 16minutes of the half.
The game was now being played in the defensive third of the field as Belcoo struggled to get out. The Gaels weren’t doing any damage to the scoreboard at this stage but the ball was coming back at the home defenders far too quickly. Conor McKeown made a fine block to deny a certain goal. A goal did come in the 24th minute though to cut the lead to just one before two goals in the final 30seconds of the half from the visitors catapulted them into a five point interval lead, 1-5 to 4-1.
Belcoo, similar to the first half, started brightly to register 1-2 and level proceeding at 2-7 to 4-1. Nathan McGovern landing a good point from play before Jamie Ray netted and Josh Killilea angled over a fine free with the outside of the boot.
Jamie Ray registered his third goal while Michael Burns popped over a point, 42minutes played and Belcoo were now 3-8 to 4-1 ahead.
The O’Rahilly’s though, didn’t score again, 18minutes the length without one this time and it allowed Enniskillen back into the contest. 44th & 47th minute goals put the visitors noses infront again.
Belcoo had their chances for scores, they were just wayward in their efforts over the closing stages. Defensively they were working hard, Jack Greene, Daniel O’Connor and Patrick Magee were all battling gamely, winning possession and moving their side forward.
The game remained in the melting pot until the final minute of normal time, a seventh Enniskillen goal killing the tie with points added for good measures. The Gaels victors by 7 in the end.
Team (13 a side) Lorcan Leonard, Conor McKeown, Jack Greene, Finn Maes, Josh Killilea (0-1), Daniel O’Connor, Jamie Ray (3-3), Michael Burns (0-2), Patrick Magee, Thomas Parker, Nathan McGovern (0-1), Eoin Corrigan (0-1), Sean Boylan. Subs Patrick Boylan.
Apr 20, 2019 - Rousing Second Half Sees Reserves Beat Harps
ERNE CUP DIVISION 1: Belcoo 4-8 v 0-15 Derrygonnelly Harps
A rousing second half display from the sky blue O’Rahilly’s on a glorious evening seen them come from four points down at the interval to win by five by the finish, outscoring their purple and gold opponents 2-7 to 0-4 in the second half. For a change, there wasn’t a wind, it was a perfect night for football on the shores of Lough MacNean as the sun set behind the far goals.
There was a large crowd in attendance and by the end of the first quarter, not many if any would have foreseen a Belcoo victory. Derrygonnelly had been completely dominant, they moved into a 0-5 to no score lead and looked like it was going to be a very comfortable night for the Harps.
From nowhere Belcoo hit three of the next four scores, two of these were goals and with 21minutes played, the hosts somehow lead by one, 2-1 to 0-6. Goalkeeper Gary Doherty had pinged a 45 on 17minutes to get his side on the scoreboard before Matthew McAloon cut in from the left wing and squeezed the ball into the net at the near post. The Harps responded with a point but McAloon soon went on another run, this time he was upended inside the box and Ronan Meehan coolly dispatched the penalty kick.
Now, it was as good as it got for Belcoo in the half, normal service was resumed as an impressive Harps side rattled off five unanswered points to lead 0-11 to 2-1 by half time.
The O’Rahilly’s emerged from the break much better, first to all balls, tenacious in the tackle and they began to turn the tide. Ronan Meehan popped over an early free with McAloon and Meehan registering neat points from play as their side now started to find gaps in the Harps defence. The visitors did knock over a free but the turning point was a loose pass in the middle sector by the Harps, Declan Leonard, who rolled back the years on Friday night, made the interception, raced forward 45yards and slipped the ball across to Matthew McAloon who palmed it into the net. 3-4 to 0-12 with 39minutes on the clock.
Buoyed by leading again Belcoo kept the foot down, around the middle Leonard, Brian Lyndsky and Barry McGovern were going well, Matthew McAloon and Ian Corrigan inside were causing plenty of bother and the swagger which the Harps had started the game with had faded. It was game on, and it was the Belcoo men who had the better appetite for it.
Gary McGovern made a great turnover and found Ian Corrigan who in turn fed Ronan Meehan for an excellently crafted score. Corrigan then had a glorious opportunity for a goal, it was arguably the move of the night as Belcoo cut open the defence but Corrigan slide the ball narrowly wide when looking for the bottom right corner of the net. It remained 3-5 to 0-12.
The miss stalled the momentum the O’Rahilly’s had built up, Derrygonnelly had been thrown a lifeline and they had a few minutes on the ball, registering just the one score against a dogged home defence to half the deficit. Matthew McAloon landed a fine score from the left wing after taking a great pass from Daire Keaney on 53minutes before the result was secured five minutes from time.
Brendan McPartland was alert to a loose ball and found substitute James Gillespie, he fed McAloon who popped the ball to another substitute Aaron Dolan who drove in along the byline and fisted the ball across the goalmouth for Gerard McHugh, another substitute, to palm into the net, 4-6 to 0-13.
James Gillespie added a left footed point following good work from McHugh while Matthew McAloon popped over another. Derrygonnelly could only match these two points late on as Belcoo finished up deserving winners after an excellent second half.
Team: Gary Doherty (0-1), Anthony Kerrigan, Shane McAloon, Brendan McPartland, Michael McGourty, Brian Lyndskey, Gary McGovern, James McGourty, Declan Leonard, Barry McGovern, Ronan Meehan (1-3), John Scott, Matthew McAloon (2-3), Ian Corrigan, Daire Keaney. Subs Gerard McHugh (1-0), Dean McDermott, James Gillespie (0-1), Aaron Dolan.

Belcoo were struggling to get to the pace of the game and match the power being produced by the home side in the opening quarter.

The Senior Men bounced back from last weekends defeat with a comfortable win in Coa on Sunday afternoon. The hosts were without several of their key players and the game really was only a contest for a short period of time as Belcoo led by 10 at the interval and pushed further and further clear in the second half.
By the break it was 1-9 to 0-2. The Coa scores both coming from Darren McQuade but Belcoo had been dominant. They probably overplayed and overcrowded the scoring zone at times in the first half hour but they eventually found a good rhythm and started taking better options and seen the scoreboard start ticking.
All but one of the O’Rahilly’s scores on the day were from play, a Gary Doherty 45 in the closing stages the only set piece. Ciaran Flaherty opened the scoring, Jonathan Feeley was next to slot over before Flaherty registered his second via the inside of the post from the right wing.
