Jun 20, 2018 - Great U14 Girls Win As They Overturn Knockninny

U14 Girls Division 1: Belcoo 1-5 v 1-1 Knockninny

Belcoo U14 Girls overturned a 21 point defeat 9 days ago to claim a well deserved victory tonight in a low scoring affair at home to Knockninny. The O’Rahilly’s were much the hungrier side this evening, first to loose balls, snapping in bravely to lift possession while holding firm going through tackles. As a collective unit it was a fabulous display of sheer grit and determination to ensure they would claim their first league win tonight. That being said, they made hard work of it having held 80% of possession throughout the contest. 

Played in tricky conditions as a cutting wind blew in from Lough MacNean it was the visitors who hit a goal on 5minutes with their first attack of the game. Belcoo were moving well even at this stage, Scarlett O’Connor and Sinead Barrett getting on an enormous amount of ball for the sky blues. Rhianne McGuinness at wing back won several frees having gained possession from turnovers before being fouled while Mikayla Maguire had a tremendous game on the other wing. 

Belcoo worked a first score on 7minutes when Sinead Barrett drove in from the left wing after Ciara Nolan had did well in the corner to recycle possession. The O’Rahilly’s soon had another, Sam Martin had a powerful display in midfield and she feed Barrett for a well taken second score. 

Abbie McGovern making a first start of the season applied good pressure in the corner to force a clearance straight to Scarlett O’Connor who set up Sinead Barrett for her third point of the half. 

Defensively Niamh McAloon thwarted a good Knockninny move coming to half time, aided by Ciara McGuinness and Siofra McAloon who all drove out and didn’t hold back as they attacked any ball coming their way. Half time Belcoo 0-3 v 1-0 Knockninny.

The second half seen Belcoo dominate possession again, for the opening 15minutes they camped in the Knockninny half of the field. They didn’t not register a score however they were working tirelessly in all sectors. Niamh Cullen won back some great ball on the right side, Mikayla Maguire and Cara Gray made great runs down the two wings with Eve Barrett swooping onto some serious ball after her half time introduction. 

Knockninny in a rare foray forward were to hit a point to lead with just six minutes to play. For all Belcoo’s endeavours, it was beginning to look like it wasn’t their night, Sinead Barrett burst through the middle and cracked a powerful drive against the crossbar before the danger was cleared. The visitors Aoibheann Donohoe and Ella Teague were in tremendous form at the back for their side cutting out a lot of dangerous looking Belcoo attacks.

Knockninny had another chance, Riona Keaney, at her sweeping keeper antics again, was swiftly off her line to claim the ball and set her team on their way. They would level it with 4minutes to go, Eimear Magee making a turnover in the Knockninny defence with the ball worked to Sinead Barrett, who kicked a great point from distance. 0-4 to 1-1. 

The visitors pressed forward but great play by Siofra McAloon at the back set about the move of the night as Belcoo worked the ball down the right wing, Maguire, Gray, O’Connor and Barrett all involved before this evenings Captain, Ciara Nolan gathered the ball and drove in for a fine point to give her side the lead with two minutes to play. Rachel Nolan and Cara Gray had half chances at goals to put Belcoo further ahead as they pinned back the visitors late on. 

With a minute it play the O’Rahilly’s got their just rewards for a great display. Scarlett O’Connor, who’d a great game, broke the tackle close to goal and found the top corner with a floated effort to see her side run out 1-5 to 1-1 winners. 

It was an excellent showing and a superb turnaround from Monday week last when they went down to the same opposition on a 10-11 to 3-11 scoreline. Up next is a trip to Brewster Park on Monday night as they look to overturned a defeat to Enniskillen Gaels. Bus leaving 6.20pm. 

Team (15 a side).

Jun 18, 2018 - U14 Girls Put Up Good Show Against Strong Kinawley Side

U14 Division 1: Kinawley 5-11 v 1-2 Belcoo

The Belcoo U14 Girls put up a good showing against a Kinawley side that has racked up massive scores to date in the league, with that in mind Belcoo tried out a somewhat defensive structure which worked quite well over the course of the contest. The O’Rahilly’s had several good chances in the opening half to put more scores on the board but a combination of good defending and wayward efforts when well placed meant the chances were squandered.

Belcoo were to open the scoring within a minute as Sinead Barrett popped over a free kick. It took Kinawley 8minutes to score, a shot for point, dipping under the crossbar to get them going. Belcoo were defending well, forcing kicks under pressure and from distance, goalkeeper Riona Keaney was to have an excellent game.

Ciara McGuinness and Siofra McAloon were two savages in the two corners, attacking every ball that came their way, turning over players and reading the game very well. The O’Rahilly’s carved out a good chance as Scarlett O’Connor drove forward before she fired her shot across the goals. Kinawley would hit two goals in a three minute spell but Belcoo had a great goal chance of their own when Sinead Barrett broke through and feed Rachel Nolan, who shot wide from close range.

Sinead Barrett was to race down the field to kick an excellent point while there was great work down the right side by Mikayla Maguire, Ciara Nolan and Eve Barrett coming to half time. By the interval however the home side had four points on the board despite good pressure from Eimear Magee, Cara Gray and Sam Martin, Keelan Murphy weaved her way in for two of these, both very well taken. Half time Kinawley 3-4 v 0-2 Belcoo.

Sinead Barrett registers a fine score in the first half for her side

In the second half Kinawley would pin Belcoo back for a period of time and extend their advantage, again their was good work by Mikayla Maguire and Niamh McAloon in defence with Riona Keaney thwarting a number of efforts at goal.

Moving forward, Eve Barrett and Scarlett O’Connor remained good outlets with Ciara Nolan having a great second half. Abbie McGovern came on and got stuck in with Sam Martin more of a driving force also in this half.

Belcoo would work a goal down the right wing when a long Eve Barrett run ended with Rachel Nolan gathering possession and shooting low to the corner. By the finish Kinawley were handsome winners but for Belcoo it was an encouraging display. A new system tried out, plenty of hard work, heart and determination on show ahead of another tough assignment in Belcoo against Knockninny on Wednesday night, throw in 7.15pm, players to be at the pitch for 6.40pm.

Team (15 a side) Riona Keaney, Ciara McGuinness, Niamh McAloon, Siofra McAloon, Mikayla Maguire, Eimear Magee, Rhianne McGuinness, Sam Martin, Cara Gray, Sinead Barrett (0-2), Niamh Cullen, Ciara Nolan, Eve Barrett, Rachel Nolan (1-0), Scarlett O’Connor. Subs Abbie McGovern, Eimear Gray, Caitlyn Nolan.

Jun 16, 2018 - Senior Men Topple League Leaders

Senior League Division 2: Enniskillen Gaels 1-8 v 0-12 Belcoo

The Senior Men recorded a third straight league win as they held off a stoppage time rally from Enniskilllen Gaels who sat top of the table going into the fixture in Brewster Park on Friday night. The home side hit a late 1-1 in added time at the end of the contest but Belcoo, who played the final 17minutes with a man less, were worthy winners on a 0-12 to 1-8 scoreline.
It was an entertaining affair from the outset with some great passages of play, hard hits and well taken scores. Belcoo held sway for the majority of the tie, keeping the ball well before carving out their scores.

Aaron Dolan the first to raise the white flag however the home team did likewise moments later. The Gaels wouldn’t score again for some 20minutes. Belcoo’s defence, sharp to any balls played inside. Niall McGovern and Eoin Shiels in particular coming out with good ball. Moving forward Paul McGrath was the architect of the O’Rahilly’s scores with Philip Leonard and James McGrath showing well and winning anything sent their way. Conor McAloon tagged on the next point to move Belcoo ahead once more.

Paul McGrath would kick two points as Belcoo moved into a 0-4 to 0-1 lead by the 15th minute. There was a scoreless period, the best chance of note falling to a Gaels forward but Gary Doherty made an excellent save, diving to his left to beat away the shot.

The home side had their best 5minutes spell coming to half time as they kicked three in a row to level things up however Belcoo finished the half ahead. Philip Leonard kicked an outrageous point from the left corner after great work by Gerard McHugh while a long range effort by Paul McGrath struck the post but the rebound was fisted over the bar from close range by James McGrath for a 0-6 to 0-4 interval lead.

Belcoo were clinical in the second half as the broke downfield at great pace to take scores or win frees. Lung bursting runs from Gerard McHugh, Eoin Shiels, Paul McGrath and Ryan Leonard helped ease pressure and set up scores. Enniskillen had some good possession for periods but couldn’t really break through a solid visiting defence.

Belcoo extended their advantage when Paul McGrath slotted over a 25m free, he was involved in creating a point for Aaron Dolan having taken a good ball from Brian Cox while Philip Leonard drilled over another neat point as the O’Rahilly’s moved 0-9 to 0-4 ahead.

A converted free and a point from play by the Gaels brought them back into it and with James McGrath picking up a second yellow on 43minutes one would have thought Enniskillen would work themselves back to win the game, trailing 0-9 to 0-6 at the time.

Belcoo though had other ideas, Paul McGrath gained a kickout, raced down the field playing a number of one two’s, before slotting over a point. Next, the energetic Gerard McHugh turned over a ball in his own penalty area, 30seconds later he was at the other end of the field winning a free kick, McGrath slotted it over and Belcoo were now 5up at 0-11 to 0-6.

The Gaels popped over a free off their own but with 4minutes to play Belcoo made it a five point game again. Paul McGrath taking another kickout from Doherty before carrying the ball the length of the field, slipping Aaron Dolan in for a point.

The late onslaught from the Gaels followed, goals were required, high ball pumped in as the game moved into additional time. Niall McGovern came out with a good one, Eoin Shiels made a fine block, Brendan McPartland got a hand in, Dean McDermott stood Men up well. It was a collective effort from the O’Rahilly’s throughout.

There was to be a 63rd minute goal as a floated free was fisted to the net, a point swiftly followed and with the last kick the Gaels hit a wide, the referee certain it was wide as the umpires were unsure. It would have been cruel on a Belcoo had they not claimed victory. The sides do battle again next Saturday in Belcoo at 6.30pm.

Team. Gary Doherty, Eoin Shiels, Ryan Leonard, Brendan McPartland, Dean McDermott, Niall McGovern, Gerard McHugh, Christopher Leonard, James McGourty, Paul McGrath (0-5), Shane McAloon, Conor McAloon (0-1), Aaron Dolan (0-3), James McGrath (0-1), Philip Leonard (0-2). Subs Used. Brian Cox, Gary Maguire. Niall Cullen.

Jun 14, 2018 - U14 Girls Go Down At Home To Enniskillen

U14 Girls Division 1: Belcoo 1-7 v 5-6 Enniskillen Gaels

Belcoo Under 14 Girls went down at home to Enniskillen Gaels on a 5-6 to 1-7 scoreline in their Division 1 League outing this evening. The O’Rahilly’s would have held the majority of the possession and territorial advantage throughout the game but squandered all too many good scoring chances and they were made pay for it by a much more clinical Enniskillen outfit. 

There were a number of good displays on the night, Ciara McGuinness had another excellent game at corner back with Eve Barrett showing and winning an outrageous amount of balls in the attack. These two P7’s were hungry for it from the outset with the improving Rachel Nolan and the returning Rhianne McGuinness having their moments. 

Eve Barrett driving at the Enniskillen Gaels defence this evening.

Belcoo took 20seconds to find the opening score as Sam Martin won the throw up, played a good low pass into the lively Scarlett O’Connor who gathered and slipped Sinead Barrett in for the point. Enniskillen responded with a point but Belcoo soon found another as Cara Gray cut in from the right, her shot was beaten away by the goalkeeper, Mikayla Maguire was first to the loose ball before popping it to Sinead Barrett coming off the shoulder for her second point. 

Enniskillen once more replied but Belcoo would dominate the next five minutes where they had seven good attacks but just had two points to show for it. Sinead Barrett and Scarlett O’Connor the scorers while Eve Barrett struck the post with an effort at goal. Belcoo 0-4 to 0-2 up.  

Enniskillen’s first venture upfield was to be a goal. They tagged on a point before rattling two quick fire goals from Erin Tierney. By half time they had another point on the board. The visitors 5minutes of pressure seeing them hit 3-2 to leave them nine clear at the interval 3-4 to 0-4.

 Rhianne McGuinness comes under pressure from 3 Gaels Girls

Belcoo were to dominate all but the last five minutes of the second half. Despite all the ball, pressure and chances, they had only recorded two points from Sinead Barrett and the gap was still seven. 

Enniskillen to their credit had defended and soaked up the pressure well, their first real attack of note would be a goal to kill the tie. Belcoo did respond immediately with their only goal of the game as Sinead Barrett found the top right corner from the right side after Ciara McGuinness and Eve Barrett were involved down that side. 

Enniskillen finished the tie strongly as they hit 1-1 late on while goalkeeper Riona Keaney had done well in other dangerous moments. Belcoo conjured a late point from Cara Gray although she’s still scratching her head wondering how she didn’t get a goal from inside the 6yard box. Full time 5-6 to 1-7 in Enniskillen’s favour. 

Belcoo travel to unbeaten Kinawley on Monday, who have hammered both Knockninny and Enniskillen to date. They will then play Knockninny on Wednesday as the busy U14 schedule continues. 

Team. (15 a side) Riona Keaney, Ciara McGuinness, Eimear Magee, Eimear Gray, Ciara Nolan, Niamh McAloon, Rhianne McGuinness, Sam Martin, Cara Gray (0-1), Sinead Barrett (1-5), Niamh Cullen, Mikayla Maguire, Eve Barrett, Rachel Nolan, Scarlett O’Connor (0-1). Sub Caitlyn Nolan.
