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.
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.
Senior League Division 2 Table:
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.

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.
