Seniors Beaten In Garrison
Aug. 1, 2013
SENIOR LEAGUE: Devenish 0-16 v 0-13 Belcoo
Devenish completed a league double over Belcoo at the dark and damp surroundings in Garrison on Wednesday evening with a 0-16 to 0-13 victory. Devenish cut open a subdued O’Rahilly’s in the opening period to hold a six point interval lead and although Belcoo made a decent stab at getting something from the tie their efforts proved fruitless as the hosts picked up two more league points which has lifted them to third while Belcoo remain bottom.
A Chris O’Brien point within 10seconds of the throw in set the tone. By the 10th minute the hosts had six points on the board to Belcoo’s one. It was all to easy for a much sharper Devenish side as they popped over scores at a rapid rate. Gavin Gallagher notched their second while John O’Flanagan fired over three wonderful efforts from wide on the left wing, all of which came from play.
In a rare foray forward by the lethargic visitors Ciaran Flaherty arrowed over a point from distance but Jason Love extended Devenish’s advantage as he ran unchallenged down the middle to clip over.
Already well adrift Belcoo had a sight a goal as Ian Corrigan, Shane McCabe and Jonathan Feeley all combined. McCabe’s effort at goal bounced off the upright for Feeley to tap over from close range. The O’Rahilly’s were beginning to get a grip of proceedings but failed to convert a number of scoring opportunities having dropped four shots short. At the other end a much more clinical home side continued to add to their tally.
Terry O’Flanagan was next to find the target, cutting in from the right to split the posts. Feeley and Chris O’Brien exchanged frees before Flaherty landed another Belcoo score to leave it 0-8 to 0-4 after 25minutes.
Belcoo had their second sight at goal after a slick forward move seen Patrick Burns breakthrough only for a tame shot to be easily saved by Thomas Treacy. By the interval Barry Mulrone had pointed a long distance free and Gavin Gallagher had added his sides tenth point of the half.
In the opening seven minutes of the second half eight scores were exchanged as both sets of forwards were on top. Belcoo shaded this period hitting five scores, Jonathan Feeley accounting for two with Patrick Burns, John Carrigan and Ian Corrigan also on the scoresheet however Devenish were still in command as John O’Flanagan added another two to his tally while Chris O’Brien tapped over a free kick. 0-13 to 0-9.
Belcoo were in the ascendancy at this stage and had turned things round in the middle sector of the field. By the 54th minute only two points separated the sides, 0-14 to 0-12. Flaherty, Feeley and McCabe had all registered scores while John O’Flanagan had pointed a free.
This however was as close as Belcoo got, Flaherty had a goal effort saved by Treacy and John O’Flanagan would fire over a near impossible point from the left corner at the other end. O’Flanagan accounted for Devenish’s last score of the contest while Brian Cox drilled over for Belcoo but the visitors never conjured a goal chance they needed to snatch a draw and as a result suffered a ninth league defeat of the campaign.
