Oct 21, 2017 - U16 Boys Claim League Title

U16 Division 4 League Final: Belcoo 2-11 v 2-6 Ederney

Our Under 16 Boys claimed the Division 4 League Title after a gruelling hour in tough conditions in Roslea this afternoon against Ederney. The O’Rahilly’s winners on a 2-11 to 2-6 scoreline having opened up a lead coming to half time, they kept themselves in front to the final whistle having worked tremendously hard. 

  Captain Oisin Leonard hold the Shield aloft much to the delight of the O'Rahilly's supporters

The game began in crazy fashion with three goals in six minutes, Ederney cutting through the defence to register two of these goals while Daniel O’Connor and Lawrence McKeown combined down the left for McKeown to drive in and find the bottom corner. 

Cormac McHugh and Emmett McGuinness were both to hit excellent points of their right and left foots respectively between an Ederney effort to see the scoreline at 2-1 to 1-2 on 10minutes. The game began to settle down after its frantic opening. 

Their was some serious work being down by Oran McCann in the middle sector, twice thwarting Ederney attacks with strong, robust tackles. Emmett McGuinness was all over the place making blocks and tackles with Daniel O’Connor proving the main outlet from the defence at wing back, getting on loads of possession and using it well coming forward. 

  Oisin O'Loughlin secures the ball in front of his marker

Ederney twice struck the crossbar going for goal in a good five minutes spell while Mark Ferguson did well to stop onrushing forwards with some strong and sturdy tackles. Matthew Mulvey got a great hand in on 14minutes when Ederney threatened also. 

Belcoo were slowing edging their way into the game, breaks and dirty balls around the middle were still being won by the men in white but a good break seized upon by Gerry Nolan paved the way to a Belcoo score after Josh Killilea was fouled with 16minutes on the clock. Lawrence McKeown slotted the placed ball beginning a profitable period for the O’Rahilly’s. 

Emmett McGuinness swooped bravely on the next break ball, he picked out Josh Killilea on the left side, Killilea found McKeown who split the posts again. Lawrence made it three in a matter of minutes having worked a clever one-two from a free kick with Daniel O’Connor on the left after Oisin O’Loughlin was upended. That point but Belcoo ahead for the first time but the lead only lasted 40seconds. Ederney winning the next kickout and breaking downfield, Ryan Maguire knocking over from an acute angle 2-2 to 1-5. 


Left -Emmett McGuinness first to a loose ball.  Right - Lawrence McKeown has his eye firmly fixed on the ball

It was evenly matched with every ball fiercely contest on a very heavy and soft playing surface. Oran McCann and Cormac McHugh gained more primary possession coming to half time with Oisin Leonard and Daniel O’Connor bombing down the left side in support. A well worked move seeing Lawrence McKeown fasten onto the ball and he give his side the lead once again with a curled effort from 25yards. 

Oisin O’Loughlin claimed a popped pass from Conor McKeown on 24minutes, he fed Josh Killilea who offloaded to Lawrence McKeown for a long range effort from the right side. 

Ederney hit back with a pointed free from the dangerous Evan Corrigan, Matthew Mulvey though, had warmed to the task of keeping the centre half forward quiet with Mark Ferguson and Ben McNulty having tightened up the last line of the defence to keep Ederney out. 

Coming to half time, the O’Rahilly’s hit the games telling score. Josh Killilea snapped up a loose ball 60yards from goal, he moved infield and with the outside of the boot, sent the ball in towards Lawrence McKeown, he gathered, 30yards out, beat his man and raced in for a well taken goal. 2-7 to 2-3, it was at the interval. 

 Cormac McHugh rises highest to claim possession

Not entirely impressed on the sidelines, stern words were spoken as a big 30minutes was asked for. It was duly delivered, the work rate was first class as they tired, they continued to battle for every ball. It would transpire to be a low scoring half, 0-4 to 0-3 in Belcoo’s favour as they seen out the win with five points to spare. 

Lawrence McKeown fired over a point inside the opening minute with Evan Corrigan replying from a free on 37minutes. The game remained in the balance and it took a fine save from Jamie Ray at a key juncture in the tie, diving to his right to beat away a well struck effort to kept Belcoo’s lead in tact. 

Fiachra McAloon was introduced and proved a good outlet in the forward line while some lung bursting runs forward by Cormac McHugh and Oisin Leonard in support failed to yield scores, Lawrence McKeown was on hand to drive through and drill over on 42minutes after being setup by Jack Greene, who made some great passes following his introduction. 

Gerry Nolan and Matthew Mulvey made some good turnovers while Mark Ferguson threw himself in the way to block a well hit effort at goal.  Ederney were dominating possession, moving the ball well until they reached the Belcoo 45, the O’Rahilly’s engaged and turned over several promising moves and they would hit the opposition in the counter attack, the energetic Cormac McHugh powering unfield to slot over another point with 8minutes to play, 2-10 to 2-5. 


Ederney would reduce the deficit to four with a late point by Ryan Maguire but the goal they craved didn’t materialise and Belcoo finished the day with the score of the game, a simply sublime effort on the left peg from near the left sideline by Lawrence McKeown to ensure the shield was heading for the shores of Lough MacNean. 

It was a tremendous display of grit and determination where every man in the sky blue jerseys worked themselves into the ground for the cause. A well deserved win to cap a good season for this group of players. Congratulations to all concerned.

Team (15 a side) Jamie Ray, Ben McNulty, Mark Ferguson, Oisin Leonard, Gerry Nolan, Matthew Mulvey, Daniel O’Connor, Cormac McHugh (0-2), Oran McCann, Emmett McGuinness (0-1), Patrick Martin, Conor McKeown, Lawrence McKeown (2-8), Oisin O’Loughlin, Josh Killilea.

Oct 18, 2017 - Super Second Half Sees U13s Win By One

Belcoo U13 Girls produced an almighty comeback to seal their place in Division 1 this evening under the lights in Garrison. Trailing 2-2 (6) to no score at half time they battled back with eight great points in the second period while conceding just the one for a single point success. 

As the wind and rain strengthened so did the Belcoo girls. It was a night for grafting, winning the dirty ball, both literally and metaphorically and the O’Rahilly girls were well up for the challenge after half time. 

 The Girls pictured earlier in the season

They penned back the hosts for the first 13minutes of the second half to fire over eight in a row. Eve Barrett got the scoreboard ticking with a fine score from out on the right wing. The youngster had a particularly fine contest, twisting and turning her marker throughout, winning some great ball out in front as our chief outlet in a tough first half too. 

Niamh McAloon was next to drill over a point when half time substitute Caitlyn Nolan won the break ball from the kickout and slipped the ball off to the supporting McAloon. 

Rhianne McGuinness came to the fore and was getting hands on most kickouts in an advanced position. She laid on Sinead Barrett for a third point as Belcoo had cut the hosts lead in half by the 6th minute of the half. 2-2 (6) to 0-3. 

The belief the game could be turned around continued to grow on the faces of the sky blues. Captain for the night, Scarlett O’Connor fastened onto a good ball by Sinead Barrett after Ciara Nolan turned over the Devenish defender coming out from the back. O’Connor raising the white flag with a fine effort from the right wing. 

Mikayla Maguire had done a sterling job at the back in the first half and had started the second half well too but she was brought upfield to kick scores and that’s exactly what she did. The Birthday Girl hit two wonderful points in two minutes which had the sides level 2-2 (6) to 0-6. 

Belcoo were on a roll and when Scarlett O’Connor drove down the middle and split the posts, the O’Rahilly’s were ahead for the first time. Niamh McAloon then drove through a gap and slotted her second of the night for a two point advantage. 

There were massive displays from all the girls in sky blue this evening, Devenish battled back with a point but Belcoo held firm in the end to seal the win by the narrowest of margins. 

The first half was all Devenish as they pressed hard from the start. The overworked defence were doing well to restrict scores as they forced hurried shots by the home side wide. Riona Keaney showed good hands while she couldn’t do much about either goal. Siofra McAloon had an excellent 40minutes, judging several tricky balls really well to cut out attacks as did Sam Martin who was the real driving force in the opening 20minutes when others were struggling to get into the game. Cara Gray had a great battle with her opposite number and was an outlet for Keaney’s kickouts in the second half as she helped Belcoo move back upfield. 

Eimear Magee was another who grew into the game in an unfamiliar midfield slot, driving forward well in the second half and unfortunate to see a few efforts at points go narrowly wide while their were fine displays from the ever improving Ciara Nolan, Eimear Gray and Ciara McGuinness who both worked tirelessly and made good use of the ball. 

In what was very testing and trying conditions. Six down at the break, it was a wonderful display of hard work, grit, hunger and drive which we know this group has, that seen them claim a place in the top division. As the motto on the back of the jersey states 'With Hard Work There Are No Limits'

We await further details of the Divisional Semi Finals and Finals Day. Training continues Monday from 7pm to 8.15pm.

Team (13 a side) Riona Keaney, Siofra McAloon, Rhianne McGuinness, Sam Martin, Mikayla Maguire (0-2), Cara Gray, Niamh McAloon (0-2), Eimear Magee, Eve Barrett (0-1), Ciara Nolan, Eimear Gray, Sinead Barrett (0-1), Scarlett O’Connor (0-2). Subs Ciara McGuinness and Caitlyn Nolan.
