Seniors ease past Skea

Box Score

May. 2, 2010

Belcoo produced an excellent second half display as they eased past Lisnaskea on Sunday by a score of 3-18 to 0-8.

The opening half was very tight, Belcoo were playing against a stiff breeze but they went in at the break leading by 0-8 to 0-5. Ciarán Flaherty, John Carrigan and Ronan Ferguson all registered two points while Kieran Leonard and Stephen Maguire also got on the scoresheet. For Lisnaskea, Daniel Kille pointed twice with Aidy Little also among the points.

Belcoo started the second period which would yield 3-10 very well, Ciarán Flaherty was fouled for a penalty. Paul McGrath's spot kick was pushed onto the post by the goalkeeper but McGrath was on hand to volley the rebound into the net. John Carrigan fired over two points from distance as Belcoo started to open up their opponents at will. The second goal arrived moments later as full back Sean McNulty found himself on the left wing before playing a sublime cross field pass into the path of Kieran Leonard who's shot found the net via the underside of the crossbar.

It was all Belcoo at this stage and centre half back Niall Leonard was to get the next point, Ciarán Flaherty bust in from the sideline and slipped the ball to Leonard who's attempt fist into the net clipped the bar and went over for a point. Kieran Leonard pointed before Gavin Leonard came off the bench to score with his first touch.

Lisnaskea's attacks at this time were very sporadic as Stephen Maguire, John Carrigan and Niall McGovern were bossing the midfield for Belcoo. Daniel Kille knocked over a few consolation points as Belcoo continued to press forward.

Shane McCabe found the bottom corner of the net when he drew on a loose ball in the penalty area with 10 minutes remaining. Ronan Ferguson (2), John Carrigan, Paul McGrath and Ciarán Flaherty were all to register points in the closing stages as Belcoo made it three wins from three games. Next Sunday Belcoo travel to Ederney next Sunday, throw in 6pm.
