Struggling Seniors Defeated by Maguiresbridge

Box Score

Nov. 8, 2015

SENIOR LEAGUE 1B: Maguiresbridge 0-15 v 0-9 Belcoo

Maguiresbridge would complete the league double over Belcoo with a 0-15 to 0-9 victory on Sunday afternoon. The result has tightened things up once more at the bottom of the league, any two from five can still go down with just a few games remaining. 

The hosts were much more clinical over the hour, Belcoo had plenty of opportunities but were chasing the game from midway through the first period when a scoring burst from Maguiresbridge catapulted them into a six point interval lead.

Belcoo began well but were wayward in front of goal before Ciaran Flaherty knocked over a free. The visitors would cut through the home defence moments later, Flaherty's shot at goal was beaten away by Colum Rice before the hosts came more into the tie and fired over a number of scores. Sean Corrigan the main contributor from placed balls while adding two good scores from play. 

Some patient build up by Belcoo seen corner back Ryan Leonard on the end of a move to fire over but other chances dropped short and went wide while at the other end the Bridge continued to take their chances, a quick trio of scores from Corrigan pushing them well clear. Belcoo mustered one point in return, a driven effort from Ciaran Flaherty which left the half time score, Maguiresbridge 0-9 v 0-3 Belcoo. 

Belcoo would rally a bit early the second half. Two points from Paul McGrath and two from Jonathan Feeley had cut the deficit but Sean Corrigan and Rory Porteous raised the white flag at the other end. 

At 0-11 to 0-7 Matthew McAloon done well on the right side before racing through on goal, his close range effort though was saved by the home 'keeper. McAloon would register a point a few minutes later before Maguiresbridge kicked on and ensured they wouldn’t be caught. Ciaran Corrigan, Andrew Breslin and Rory Porteous all added points in the closing ten minutes, Belcoo's sole response was a driven effort from Paul McGrath. The result means it's still all to play for at the foot of the table. Belcoo have the bye next week as the other four sides all face one another. Belcoo are home to Lisnaskea on 22nd before travelling to St. Pats on 29th November.
