Belcoo continue impressive form with strong win over Teemore

Box Score

Apr. 26, 2014

Belcoo 1-12 Teemore 0-09

The senior team maintained their 100 per cent start to the season with a determined victory at home to Teemore on a score line of 1-12 to 0-09. 

High balls and high winds were to be the fore throughout the match for both sides but a 1-2 haul from senior debutant Matthew McAloon was to give Belcoo the impetus and platform to forge out the win.

Playing with a strong wind in the first half, the hosts found scores hard to come by and only managed to score four points however there were a host of missed chance and Belcoo should have been well ahead.

Brian Cox opened Belcoo’s account with a point after good work from Johnny Feeley.

Feeley opened his own account soon after and it wasn’t long before he got his second after full back Niall Leonard surged forward to collect a pass from Ciarán Flaherty before he laid it off to Feeley who made no mistake.

Declan O’Reilly got the Shamrock’s off the mark with a free after Ryan McGovern took down his opponent and subsequently was black carded and was replaced Matthew McAloon.

Another point soon followed for the visitors before Feeley got his third of the game to leave it 0-04 to 0-02 at the break although there should have been a lot more between the sides.

Teemore started brightly at the start of the second half and they quickly rattled of three points with the aid of the strong wind with Gerry Quinlan’s long-range score the pick of them.

Trailing by a point, Belcoo finally kicked into life and would go on to register the next six scores.

Matthew McAloon got his first point after a good move out of defence and would get his second soon after, again after a patient build up.

Feeley got his fourth of the night from play before McAloon’s goal arrived.

Determination and a bit of fortune played a big part as McAloon battled passed a number of defender’s before his shot at goal was parried into the back of the net by the Teemore keeper.

A free from Feeley after Flaherty was taken down and then another from 14 yards left eight points in it midway through the second half.

But Teemore were not going to give up easily and would dominate proceedings for a while and would go on to score four in a row and it looked at one stage that they would continue to eat away at the Belcoo lead.

However a Feeley free stopped the rot for Belcoo and a point from midfielder Niall McGovern finished off the scoring to seal the victory for the hosts.

This was another solid display from the O’Rahilly’s and a stark contrast to the fortunes of the team at the start of last season and it will give them plenty of confidence going into Sunday’s encounter with Roslea.
