U10’s Make It Two Wins From Two

Box Score

May. 14, 2016

U10's: Enniskillen Gaels 2-10 (22) v 0-16 (32) Belcoo

Belcoo played Enniskillen Gaels in an entertaining match at Brewster Park on Friday evening in the Derrygonnelly U10 tournament where the visitors recorded a 0-16 (32) to 2-10 (22) victory to maintain their 100% start to the campaign.

The O’Rahillys got off to a good start with some fine scores from the left and right boots of Eoin Corrigan and Michael Burns respectively. As in the first game against Ederney, the Blues dominated the early part of the match but failed to capitalise on their superior possession with a lot of errant shooting at the posts.

Some excellent defending by the back line of Sam Martin, Siofra McAloon and Scarlett O’Connor prevented some vital scores when the Gaels had their tails up.  

The match was evenly balanced at the half time interval with Enniskillen scoring a flurry of points before the break.

The second half saw the O Rahilly’s up their performance and pull into a commanding lead which they would not relinquish. Some great fielding from Patrick Magee and scores from Miceal McAllister pushed the young O’Rahilly’s further in front.

Stout defending from Rachel Nolan and Nathan Carroll Magee in goal helped stem the Gael attack when they upped their game towards the end of the second half.  Good foraging from Eve Barrett and Nathan McGovern up front set up a few more scores for the O Rahilly’s and with the timely introduction of Thomas Parker and Riona Keaney the Blues finished the game with a Ten point advantage.

Up next, Belcoo host Erne Gaels this coming Friday evening at 7.30pm. Players are asked to be at the pitch for 7pm.

Development Game:

In the Development Game Belcoo's P3 & P4's battled bravely against a much physically stronger and older Enniskillen side. While the hosts enjoyed the most of the ball in the opening half, the wee O'Rahilly's worked tirelessly in the second period, holding the Gaels to just four scores while enjoying some great passages of play themselves. It was a learning experience for our young footballers who will surely benefit greatly in the coming days, weeks, months and years. This is just the beginning for them.
