Juniors Lose Championship Replay

Box Score

Jul. 27, 2014


Belcoo failed to reach the Championship decider at the second attempt as St. Joseph’s capitalised on defensive errors to book a place with Aughadrumsee in the Final.

The game, once again played in Garrison, followed a remarkably similar pattern to the original as Belcoo began fast once more, this time racing into a five nil lead before St. Joseph’s began their fightback, a high ball going in over Jack O’Dolan’s head in both halves, the telling scores unfortunately for the Belcoo netminder.

The O’Rahilly’s had the wind in their favour in the first period. Aaron Dolan kicked two good points from play early on, Gary Maguire added two frees and Philip Leonard also pointed a free it was 0-5 to no score and Belcoo looked set to dominate.

St. Joseph’s first score would be a goal, O’Dolan beaten by a ball which dropped under the crossbar. Over the remainder of the half the two sides shared four points. Gary Maguire again tapping over a free while Aaron Dolan register from play to leave it 0-7 to 1-2 in Belcoo’s favour.

The O’Rahilly’s were dealt a blow at the interval as Ian Corrigan, who sustained a nasty facial injury was deemed unfit to play any more part in the game, it transpires he has broken his cheekbone in 3 places, ending his season. We wish him well.

The second period was only minutes old when Aaron Dolan was sent off for picking up two quick yellow cards, reducing his side to 14men. Struggling against the elements and now a man down St. Joseph’s were fit to take advantage knocking over a string of scores to move into the lead.

Belcoo could only muster two second half points from Ronan Meehan and Gary Maguire as St. Joseph’s took control before securing victory with a second goal ten minutes from time.
