Mar. 22, 2015

Minors: Belcoo 3-7 v 2-18 Kinawley

A strong finish from Kinawley seen them record a victory in this league encounter in Belcoo on Sunday afternoon. The game was level with 10minutes remaining but 1-5 without reply from the visitors seen them to a 2-18 to 3-7 win.

Kinawley were to respond with two points but Matthew McAloon and James Gillespie pointed at the other end for Belcoo. James McAloon made a fine save with his feet to deny a Kinawley goal, the visitors did add to their tally with four points before the interval.

Belcoo though would find the net twice before half time, Ciaran Flanagan swivelling in front of goal to fire in from close range on 22minutes while a Gary Doherty 45 hit the crossbar and was scrambled over the line, Matthew McAloon with the last touch. Michael McGourty added a late point to see Belcoo hold a 3-3 to 0-6 half time lead.
