Seniors Lose In Lisnaskea
May. 13, 2013
SENIOR LEAGUE DIVISION 1 : Lisnaskea 0-12 v 1-6 Belcoo
Lisnaskea inflicted a fourth straight loss on Belcoo who's poor start to the 2013 season continues. A third quarter scoring spurt seen the hosts outscore their opponents seven points to two before a Shane McCabe goal 10minutes from time gave Belcoo a chance to salvage something but it would be the Emmets who regained the upper hand to record a 0-12 to 1-6 win.
A low scoring 1st period on a rain soaked surface seen Belcoo enter the break 0-3 to 0-2 ahead. Stephen Maguire (free), Jonathan Feeley and Patrick Burns accounting for the visitors scores while a Sean Keenan (free) had opened the scoring in the 4th minute however his side would wait until the 26th minute to add their second as John Woods fired over. Belcoo had the vast majority of possession over the opening 30mins playing with the aid of a swirling breeze but failed to convert several attacking moves into scores.

Lisnaskea's sharp and efficient start to the second half seen them move into a commanding position with scores from Sean Keenan (2), Stephen Carters, Niall McElroy and a Mark Little's free as Belcoo struggled to stem the flow of constant attacking movements. The visitors sole response was a Jonathan Feeley effort from play. Further scores from Little and Keenan were sandwiched by a Feeley free as Belcoo trailed 0-9 to 0-5 at the midway mark in the second half.
Lisnaskea had been comfortable to this point but Belcoo began to pick up the break balls in the middle sector and having failed to add to their tally with a string of wides the visitors would eventually register a score and it was a timely three pointer. A quickly taken free seen McCabe shrug off Woods and race through on goal before firing into the roof of the net past Darren Graham to leave just one point between the sides with 10minutes to play.

Buoyed by the goal Belcoo looked like they could kick on and win the contest but Lisnaskea began to win the breaks in midfield and swiftly increased their advantage with scores from a Mark Little freekick while Sean Keenan added a great score from an acute angle on the right wing. Ronan Ferguson drilled over for Belcoo at the other end but the final score of the contest came from Lisnaskea substitute Ryan O’Keefe gave the hosts a 0-12 to 1-6 victory.
Team: James McGrath, Stephen Nolan, Niall Leonard, Ryan Leonard, Paul McGrath, Gavin Leonard, Philip Leonard, Seamus Conlon, John Carrigan, Patrick Burns (0-1), Shane McCabe (1-0), Declan Leonard, Ronan Ferguson (0-1), Stephen Maguire (0-1), Jonathan Feeley (0-3). Subs Used: Aaron Dolan.
