Apr 22, 2019 - U16 Girls Close In On League Final Place

U16 Girls Division 2: Belcoo 2-15 v 1-1 Lisnaskea

Belcoo moved within a game of the League Final with a solid performance against Lisnaskea in MacNean Park on Monday evening, 2-15 to 1-1winners by full time. The O’Rahilly’s must beat Ederney in the last round of fixtures to join Derrygonnelly in the decider.

Tonight, was about getting minutes under the belt for some of our younger players while managing and resting those with niggles, knocks and others how’d played very will in the other four games prior to this one, ahead of the trip to Ederney.

Mikayla Maguire set the ball rolling with an opening point after two minutes while Siofra McAloon knocked over a free having been fouled herself close to goals. Sinead Barrett was next to land a score after Ciana McGrath had done well out wide and Aine Barrett was knifing through the Lisnaskea defence before being upended for a penalty after a hefty tackle. Mikayla Maguire stepped up and buried the penalty to the net. 1-3 to 0-0 with 8minutes played.

The hosts had penned back Lisnaskea and were dominating on the kickout, Scarlett O’Connor cutting everything out down the left wing, Niamh McAloon claiming kickouts with Siofra McAloon and Aine Barrett getting on any breaks. Anything Lisnaskea tried to get going forward was cut out by Rhianne McGuinness at centre back while Sinead Barrett was heavily involved, constantly on the ball and she scored a good point from play before Mikayla Maguire was fouled and knocked over the resulting free. 1-5 to 0-0 by the midway stage.

The O’Rahilly’s then began to overcrowd the scoring zone, causing problems for themselves. Lisnaskea were applying good pressure but just the one point was adding in the next seven minutes, Abbie McGovern drilling over.

Caitlyn Nolan cut out a ball down the right and Belcoo started a good attack that yielded their second goal, Mikayla Maguire and Siofra McAloon involved in moving the ball swiftly through the hands to Aine Barrett who found the bottom corner.

Having squandered a few chances and overhit a few passes into the forward line, Belcoo eventually clicked into gear in the final five minutes of the half registering four points. Sinead Barrett with the first following a good turnover from O’Connor, Siofra McAloon making the next turnover for Ciana McGrath to slot over while Abbie McGovern recycled possession well for Sinead to slot another and Ciana hit the fourth as it grazed the crossbar.

Lisnaskea would get a goal with the final attack of the half to leave it 2-10 to 1-0. The second period was much tighter, Belcoo rotated the squad while playing into the breeze curtailed the scoring and Lisnaskea kept plugging away, causing several problems but an alert Riona Keaney made a number of good saves while the reliable Cara Gray was on hand to take one effort off the goalline.

Eve Barrett was straight into action having came off the bench, jinking and dancing her way past her opponent loads of times to set up some attacking play. Rachel Nolan first touch was excellent as she set Sinead Barrett up for a score. Barrett would hit the next two after good play by Mikayla Maguire and Siofra McAloon.

A good run in from the wing from Abbie McGovern seen her drill a shot against the post while defensively Ciara Parker was quickly into the thick of the action, as was Lily Mae McNulty, making her first U16 appearance, sharp, lively and brave despite the size and stature of those around her.

Eimear Gray was reintroduced to the fray and into the forward line, she quickly made her mark with a well taken point from play while an excellent run and finish from Ciara Nolan on the left seen her split the posts.

Lisnaskea kept the pressure on and had a number of promising attacks but Ciara Parker, Lily Mae McNulty and Niamh Cullen all make good interceptions. The visitors did hit a point while an excellent block by Cara Gray denied a score and Niamh McAloon, who had an impressive hour in midfield, made a super block towards the end of the game also.

Overall it was a very positive hour, tougher tests lie ahead but this was a great workout for all concerned.

Team: (14 a side) Riona Keaney, Eimear Gray (0-1), Cara Gray, Ciara McGuinness, Scarlett O’Connor, Rhianne McGuinness, Caitlyn Nolan, Niamh McAloon, Sinead Barrett (0-7), Ciana McGrath (0-2), Aine Barrett (1-0), Siofra McAloon (0-1), Abbie McGovern (0-1), Mikayla Maguire (1-2). Subs Used: Eve Barrett, Ciara Nolan (0-1), Niamh Cullen, Ciara Parker, Rachel Nolan, Lily Mae McNulty.

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). Sub Jonathan Feeley (0-1).

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.
