League Leaders Tempo Too Strong

Box Score

Apr. 18, 2015

U14s: Tempo 13-8 v 1-5 Belcoo

Belcoo U14s would produce a workmanlike hour but ultimately suffered a heavy loss to a strong Tempo side. The winners have 13 of their players in there last year at this age bracket while Belcoo have 14 players have two more years at this level and all can play Under 12 football later this season.

It was a mismatch in terms of size and strength but it wouldn’t prevent the young O’Rahilly’s trying their best on what was a hot day in Tempo. Belcoo made a good start to the tie, some excellent tackling at the back denied the hosts before a 4th minute point from Conor Magee got the scoreboard moving.

Belcoo would get the next two scores, Lawrence McKeown firing over a great point from long distance before a good move down the left involving Emmett McGuinness and Cian White seen Lawrence McKeown gather possession and driving in from the wing to add another point.

Tempo registered their first goal on 10minutes, midfielder Dylan Flynn’s shot for a point dropping under the crossbar into the net. Within a minute Tempo had added two more goals, Padraig McCaffrey with two good finishes.

Oisin O’Loughlin, Dara Flanagan and Matthew Mulvey were turning over Tempo attacks while Mark Ferguson and Oisin Leonard were getting through plenty of work in the middle. Fiachra McAloon and Josh Killilea were providing an outlet on the right side and Belcoo would hit the next score. Josh Killilea pointing a great effort from the right wing to leave it 3-1 to 0-3 midway through the half.

Conor Magee would bang in another Tempo goal before the hosts were awarded a penalty as Dara Flanagan hauled down his man. Not for the first time this year Jamie Ray saved the penalty kick and resulting rebound before Conor McKeown cleared the danger.

Tempo continued to apply pressure but Belcoo were curtailing them well and were playing some neat football when in possession themselves. Tempo though strike two more goals Michael McPhilips and Niall Fee the scorers however Belcoo would register the final score of the half, Cian White nipping in to score a goal which left it 6-1 to 1-3 at the break.

In the second half Tempo continued to drive forward and add to their tally, Belcoo however continued to battle hard throughout. The young O’Rahilly’s worked the ball forward very well at times but couldn’t muster a score their hard work deserved. Gerry Nolan was lively in attack as was Jack Greene following his introduction. Emmett McGuinness continued to be a good link between defence and attack while Patrick Martin went into goals for the final 20minutes and made a few good stops.

Belcoo points in the second period came from Gerry Nolan and a Lawrence McKeown free kick. Belcoo travel to Garrison on Tuesday evening to face Devenish. Throw in is 6.45pm. Bus leaving corner at 5.40pm.
