Sep 15, 2018 - U13 Girls Win High Quality Affair With Derrygonnelly
U13 Girls Section A: Belcoo 2-9 v 0-3 Derrygonnelly
Belcoo Under 13 Girls made it two wins from two after a great battle with Derrygonnelly at MacNean Park this evening. The level of play on show from both sides was of a very high standard and the game was much closer than the final scoreline suggested. Belcoo winners 2-9 to 0-3 but it really was tight and tough throughout.
It was 15 a side meaning all the O’Rahilly’s girls played every minute of the contest, some were making their first start at all girls football and they equipped themselves magnificently well. It was a really encouraging display from this group of girls, togetherness, support play, hard work and backing each other up.
The Harps side opened the scoring on two minutes. They were physically taller than the Belcoo girls but the home side love a challenge. There was some excellent passages of play when the hosts found their stride. Lisa Lavery goaled on six minutes before Belcoo began to work some lovely scores.
Abbie McGovern breaks away from her opponent
A flowing move through the hands seen Eve Barrett land a point on 11minutes. Abbie McGovern had a fine game securing possession with great first touch control and slipping it to supporting players, a combination of McGovern, Sam Martin and Scarlett O’Connor seen Eve Barrett slip in for another point.
Defensively Belcoo were going well, Cara Gray made two outrageous blocks with Cairenn McGrath reading things superbly as a last line of defence to cut out dangerous attacks before moving the ball down the wings to Eimear Gray and the lively Emilie McCallion.
The O’Rahilly’s worked another excellent point, Sinead Barrett was to the fore all evening and she carried possession upfield before feeding Abbie McGovern who split the posts. Moments later Eve Barrett was again on the end of the move to point, Ciara Parker doing brilliantly in the middle of the field to break through the tackle and find Barrett with a fist pass.
Ciara Parker holds tight under pressure from three Harps girls
Derrygonnelly would land two quick points at the other end while Riona Keaney was at her sweeping keeper best again to come from her goals to pick up some dangerous balls. Caitlyn Nolan got the hand in well to dispossess her player while Niamh Cullen was having a good battle with her opposite number.
The final score of the half was to be a Belcoo one, Cairenn McGrath made the turnover in the left corner back position, Cara Gray burst out from the back, Sinead Barrett and Sam Martin were involved as the ball was fed into Abbie McGovern who fisted to Scarlett O’Connor for a fine point. Half time. Belcoo 1-5 v 0-3 Derrygonnelly.
Scarlett O'Connor drives upfield in the first half
Every ball continued to be contested for with the fiercest of determination by the two sides in the second half. Some excellent pressure was applied, great kicking and awareness of players around them to use the simply options.
Belcoo were on the scoresheet three minutes into the half, Rachel Nolan with a well timed hand in to break the ball loose from the Harps defender, Eve Barrett swooping onto the loose ball to land another point. Barrett was on the end of some good work by Emile McCallion and Abbie McGovern on the right wing to land another score from play.
The O’Rahilly’s would work a goal from Sinead Barrett next, drilling low to the corner while Scarlett O’Connor hit a nice point from play on the right side. Again there was strong play in the middle of the field by Sam Martin ably assisted by Eimear Gray and Ciara Parker, they picked up several clearances while further back, Caitlyn Nolan again came out with some ball as did Cairenn McGrath having stood up her opponent well.
The final score of the game was a well struck shot by Sam Martin. Derrygonnelly pressured into kicking some wides in the second half. It was a great contest, the scoreline does the vistiros a disservice for the effort they put into it. They are a fine outfit.
Training continues Monday at 7pm. The U13s are away to Devenish on Monday. Bus leaving 5.50pm.
Team (15 a side) Riona Keaney, Caitlyn Nolan, Cara Gray, Cairenn McGrath, Eimear Gray, Niamh Cullen, Ciara Parker, Sam Martin (0-1), Sinead Barrett (1-0), Eve Barrett (0-5), Scarlett O’Connor (0-2), Emilie McCallion, Abbie McGovern (0-1), Rachel Nolan, Lisa Lavery (1-0).
Sep 14, 2018 - Belcoo Ladies Win Entertaining Encounter With Belnaleck
Ladies Senior League Division 3: Belnaleck 2-11 v 7-4 Belcoo
Belcoo Senior Ladies would avenge an earlier season defeat to fellow parishioners Belnaleck in Arney this evening in an entertaining affair. The O’Rahilly’s five goal blast in the opening half providing the platform for a 7-4 to 2-11 success.
It was a battle from minute one as both sides put everything into it. Shanna Cassidy raced downfield early on but a fine save from goalkeeper Linda McGovern denied her while Leona McNulty was on hand to gather and clear the danger. Cassidy however would open the scoring on 3minutes while Collette Rice was sin binned for no mouthguard. The O’Rahilly’s took the lead on 5minutes with a fortuitous first goal. Lisa Stewart’s long range free dipping under the crossbar for a three pointer.
The hosts would tie matters with two well taken points in quick succession but despite the numeral disadvantage the O’Rahilly’s worked the ball upfield for Donna Feeley to thump in a second goal. The visitors were moving the ball well and created two more scoring opportunities after flowing moves but the efforts from Lisa Stewart and Amanda McGrath went narrowly wide.
Belcoo remained on top in all sectors over the next five minutes, the forward line showing well and looking dangerous while defensively they were solid, turning over Belnaleck attacks time after time. Michelle Cullen had a fierce game at Centre Back cutting out so much ball and delivering some excellent passes into the forwards. It was from Cullen the next goal came, she was strong to win a dirty ball before working a one two with Seana Feeley as they moved down the field before slipping the ball over the top to Donna Feeley who made no mistake dispatching the ball to the net, 3-0 to 0-3.
Another great turnover in defence from Arlene Furey seen seven of the eleven players involved in a sweeping move upfield, the shot from Donna Feeley at the end of it went narrowly wide. The O’Rahilly’s were going well but needed to put scores on the board during this spell and eventually they arrived.
A long Linda McGovern kickout was gathered by Michelle Cullen, she offloaded to the supporting Seana Feeley who played the ball down the left channel to Amanda McGrath, she slipped the ball infield to Lisa Stewart who steadied and split the posts for a first point for her side. Belcoo nearly registered a fourth goal when Collette Rice’s free was caught close to goal by Amanda McGrath, she recycled to Eimear Higgins who’s drilled shot brought a good save from the goalkeeper Moya Hill.
The goal would come in a next passage of play, Seana Feeley winning a free on the left, she played the ball quickly to Lisa Stewart who seen her shot for a point dip under the crossbar again. From the kickout Collette Rice gained possession and weaved past four challenges before a left footed effort for a point found the top right corner of the net. 18minutes on the clock, Belcoo now 5-1 to 0-3 up.
Things turned in Belnaleck’s favour over the closing minutes of the first half, they finished strong as Belcoo tired slightly. Two Shanna Cassidy points were registered either side of a first goal for the home team while Aisling Keenan kicked a fine point from long range on the stroke of half time. There were two other dangerous balls into the wee square but Linda McGovern and Eimear Higgins turned them wide of the goals for 45’s. Half time: Belnaleck 1-6 v 5-1 Belcoo.
Belcoo would hold sway for the first 10minutes of the second half however they only managed one point, Amanda McGrath turning to land a great score after Eimear Higgins had done well down the left to win back possession, Collette Rice, Lisa Stewart and Donna Feeley all involved before McGrath gathered and swung over the point.
Belnaleck were to match the Belcoo score from a free kick before Michelle Cullen made one of the finest catches you’ll see under pressure from two opponents. She would then pick out Collette Rice who raced in for a good point. The game was becoming very stretched at this juncture but on three occasions Arlene Furey was alert to the danger coming from the full back line to intercept passes and get Belcoo moving upfield again. Seana Feeley was curtailing Cassidy very well with Crona Higgins getting through a lot of unseen work at this time.
For the second game running, Leona McNulty gave away a penalty, on this occasion the shot was fired over the crossbar while Belcoo produced an empathic response. Eimear Higgins gained the kickout, played a one two with sister Crona before she found Lisa Stewart who in turn kicked it down the right wing to the lively Donna Feeley, Feeley played a quick one two with Amanda McGrath before rifling an unstoppable shot to the roof of the net, 6-3 to 1-8 the score.
The home side would slot over another free before Farah McCloskey netted from the right wing. Again though the Belcoo response was superb. Lisa Stewart caught a long kickout from Linda McGovern, she turned and chipped the ball through to Donna Feeley who was gone again, lit down the field, running in for another well taken three pointer. Feeley would pop over a point from the left wing with four minutes to play, it proved to be the last score for her side while two late points from the hosts left it an 8 point win for Belcoo on a 7-4 (25) to 2-11 (17) scoreline.
Training continues Tuesday at 7pm.
Team (11 a side): Linda McGovern, Leona McNulty, Arlene Furey, Michelle Cullen, Crona Higgins, Eimear Higgins, Seana Feeley, Lisa Stewart (2-1), Collette Rice (1-1), Donna Feeley (4-1), Amanda McGrath (0-1). Sub Used Ciana McGrath.
Sep 13, 2018 - U13 Girls Start With A Win
U13 Girls Section A: Erne Gaels 0-1 v 3-12 Belcoo
Belcoo U13 Girls got their season up and running with a good win against a young Erne Gaels side. The O’Rahilly’s were 3-12 to 0-1 winners by the end as they worked some well taken scores and made some good blocks in the defensive end to prevent the home side adding to their tally.
The games opening score came on three minutes when goalkeeper Riona Keaney made a smart save, she then gathered the ball and found Sam Martin down the right wing, a neat crossfield pass into Sinead Barrett seen her gain possession and pop the ball over the top to younger sister Eve for her to split the posts. The sisters combined for a similar score two minutes later before Erne Gaels halved the deficit on 7minutes, 0-2 to 0-1.
Belcoo would begin to assert their dominance around the middle sector, Ciara Parker snapping onto several break balls with birthday girl Eimear Gray out in front to claim some great ball and use it well. Abbie McGovern was showing really well and proving a good link as attacks developed while Rachel Nolan registered a first goal on 9minutes having shown good hands to collect an offload from Eve Barrett.
Scarlett O’Connor was making good use of the ball with Sinead Barrett and Sam Martin heavily involved in all the O’Rahilly’s best work. A brave bit of play in the middle by Ciara Parker seen her turnover the ball, it was worked between Sam Martin and Eve Barrett before Sinead Barrett slotted over. Sinead would claim the next kickout and she slipped it to the supporting Rachel Nolan to kick a point. 1-4 to 0-1 Belcoo now led.
Eimear Gray takes her side up the field during the first half of Thursday's victory
Another full length move beginning with a block by Ciara McGuinness seen Riona Keaney gather and clear to Sinead Barrett, the ball was worked well from here between Cara Gray, Sam Martin and Scarlett O’Connor for the former to knock over the point. Coming to half time, Ciara Parker claimed another kickout, Niamh Cullen, Eimear Gary and Abbie McGovern were all involved down the right before Eve Barrett slipped in for the point. Half time. Erne Gaels 0-1 v 1-7 Belcoo.
The O’Rahilly’s continued to hold the upper hand and a goal from the restart added to their lead. Sam Martin and Scarlett O’Connor worked a one two as they created the chance for Rachel Nolan who drilled low to the net. Sam Martin and Sinead Barrett followed up with point before the younger crew made their bow from the bench.
Emilie McCallion quick to make her mark with a goal from close range. Caitlyn Nolan swooped onto some good ball in the defensive third with Cairenn McGrath keeping possession moving forward in the middle sector.
Eve Barrett fisted over a clever score before being replaced while Riona Keaney was taken out of goals to score the last two points of the game in the attack. Lisa Lavery and Serena McKeown got stuck in over the closing stages as the Blue ran out handsome winners.
