Juniors Drop A Point

Box Score

Apr. 24, 2010

The Juniors will look back on this game and wonder how they did not come away with a victory. Leading by 6 points as the game approached the last 5 minutes, Belcoo conceded two late goals to draw 0-14 to 2-8 with Devenish. The Juniors remain unbeaten after three games but this will definately feel like a point dropped rather than a point gained.

In the first half both sides traded 5 points each, Patrick Burns and Gavin Leonard both scored two points while Nevan Higgins fired over the score of the half from an acute angle. For Devenish Jason and Gerard Love both scored while Niall Ferguson and corner back Joe Gilroy also got on the scoresheet.

Belcoo started the second half well and registered 4 points without reply, Aidan McGrath got two points with Niall Cullen and Shain Gallagher also scoring, the latter following a run from his own half before firing over from all of 40yards.

More points followed from Gavin Leonard (2), Nevan Higgins, Niall Cullen and Patrick Burns while both Jason and Gerard Love got Devenish's points. Belcoo's points had eased them into a comfortable lead and they had goal chance from Gavin Leonard well saved and Niall Cullen hit the crossbar. Unfortunately for Belcoo, Devenish staged a late fightback and two late goals gave them a share of the spoils.

In the dying seconds Aidan McGrath collected the ball 20yards from the Devenish goal but as he was about to kick for a score the referee Dermot Love blew the full time whistle much to the disgust to the home players and supporters.

TEAM: Aidan Leonard, Ryan McGovern, Christopher Leonard, Shane McAloon, Shain Gallagher (0-1), Eoin Leonard, Stephen Nolan, Declan Leonard, Patrick Burns (0-3), Niall Cullen (0-2), Ian Corrigan, Gavin Leonard (0-4), Ashley Sherrin, Aidan McGrath (0-2), Nevan Higgins (0-2).
