Belcoo fall short against Roslea

Box Score

Apr. 30, 2014

SENIORS: Roslea 1-8 v 0-9 Belcoo

Belcoo lost their first game of the season as a Seamus Quigley goal for Roslea proved the difference between the two sides last Sunday on a score line of 1-08 to 0-09.

It was a tight tussle between last year’s Championship finalists and like then there was little to find between the sides, with Roslea taking their chances when they came to them.

Belcoo started quickly with a Johnny Feeley free before Sean Quigley replied for the hosts from distance.

Sean Quigley and Brendan Sherlock added another couple of scores while Ciarán Flaherty pulled one back for the visitors after a strong run.

The decisive play of the game came soon after. A long ball into the Belcoo square from Sean Quigley saw his brother Seamus get the slightest of touches and it was enough to put it past Belcoo keeper Aidan Leonard and give the hosts a commanding lead.

Belcoo needed a quick response and they did just that with good scores from Feeley and Gavin Leonard.

More scores from Sean Quigley were sandwiched between two scores from Feeley which left three points in it at 1-05 to 0-05 at half time.

The second period was to be a low scoring half as Belcoo created chances but were unable to take them, while Roslea got scores at the right time to keep enough distance between the sides.

Paul McGrath got on the scoreboard with a point after Niall McGovern did well to keep a wayward shot in play.

Sean Quigley missed a number of frees while Flaherty added two points, one from a free after a good run by Brian Cox.

However two points was as close as it was going to get as Sean Quigley added three scores late in the second half to keep the homes side’s nose in front.

And it was to end that way as the Shamrocks put an end to their run of defeats.

For Belcoo, missed chances were to prove costly but it was a solid workout for the team early in the season.
