Strong Second Half Sees U10's Past Erne Gaels

Box Score

May. 21, 2016

U10's: Belcoo 4-20 (44) v 1-5 (11) Erne Gaels

The young O’Rahilly’s made it three wins out of three on Friday evening in Belcoo when they played Erne Gaels in a rain sodden encounter. The Blues got off to a good start with scores from Nathan McGovern, Eoin Corrigan and Micheal Burns pushing the home side into an early lead.  The visitors responded with a fine point from distance followed by a well worked goal which brought them back into the game. 

Good defensive work from Siofra McAloon, Sam Martin and Scarlet O Connor repelled numerous Erne Gaels attacks when the visitors broke through from midfield.  The home side seemed to be a bit off colour in the first half with a few players showing signs of fatigue from other matches played over the Thursday and Friday period.

However digging deep and turning defence into attack Belcoo tacked on two good points from the foot of Michael Burns. Rachel Nolan helped set up a good score for the hard working Patrick Magee who chipped in with a goal and a point and Nathan Mcgovern finished the half with a well taken goal.

Not to be outdone the visitors hit back with three points of their own.  Half time score 1-8 (17) to 1-5 (11) in Belcoo’s favour.

With a good drink of water at the break a revitalised Belcoo upped their game for the second half.  Concentration, hard work and team play were there for everyone to see with some great interplay between the young O’Rahilly’s. Thomas Parker worked hard for his team around the middle of the park and set up a good score for Michael Burns.

Nathan Carroll Magee was solid between the posts and dealt comfortably with anything that came his way. Riona Keaney was having a good game up front and scored two points from play and Scarlett O Connor playing through the pain of an injured finger scored her first point in the tournament.

Eve Barrett worked tirelessly as a provider up front and Miceal McAllister’s introduction in the second half pushed the game beyond the Geals reach. Final score 4-20 (44) to 1-5 (11).
