Newtown On Top In Under 12 Encounter

Box Score

Sep. 18, 2016

Under 12 Division 1: Newtownbutler 7-18 v 4-5 Belcoo

The young O Rahilly’s travelled to Newtownbutler on Sunday morning hoping for their first win in the Division One league.  Unfortunately this proved to be a bridge too far for the blues as a strong Newtownbutler side raced into an early 2-4 to 1-0 first quarter lead, with Micheal Burns registering Belcoo’s only score of the opening exchange.  The young Belcoo side were working hard to repel the bigger and more physical home team, with Jamie Ray very busy in goals pulling off some fine saves.

The back line of Conor McKeown, Niamh McAloon, Cara Gray and Daniel O'Connor put in a gutsy performance helped by the tireless running of Colum Higgins and Micheal Burns in midfield.  By the end of the second quarter Newtownbutler held a 2-11 to 2-0 lead with Eoin Corrigan adding a second goal for Belcoo. 

 Colum Higgins up against his extremely tall opposite number in midfield.

The third quarter saw the blues best period of play with some fine scores from Sean Boylan, Sinead Barrett, Mikayla Maguire and Conor McKeown with good support and foraging from Cara Gray. Jack Greene had a good period in the full back position sweeping forward with numerous purposeful runs. The third quarter finishing 4-15 to 4-2 in Newtownbutler’s favour. 

The last quarter saw Newtownbutler move up a gear scoring 3-3 to Belcoo’s three point tally, Cian White, Jamie Ray (playing outfield with Eoin Corrigan in goal) and Micheal Burns on the scoresheet for Belcoo.  In truth the blues can have no complaints having been outplayed by a classy outfit which should go far in this competition.

Team - Jamie Ray (0-1), Niamh McAloon, Conor McKeown (1-0), Daniel O’Connor, Cara Gray, Colum Higgins, Jack Greene, Michael Burns (1-2), Mikayla Maguire, Sean Boylan (1-0), Cian White (0-1). Subs used - Eoin Corrigan (1-0), Sinead Barrett (0-1).
