Box Score

Sep. 9, 2017

U12 Division 2: Belcoo 0-11 v 12-10 St. Pat's

A very slick and stylish St. Pats side got the better of our Under 12's at a blowly MacNean Park this afternoon as they ran out 12-10 to 0-11 winners. 

The contest was competitive for 20minutes before the visitors hit a purple patch that seen three goals fired in as they pushed into a 4-5 to 0-4 at half time. They continued to dominate the third quarter while they maintained the momentum built to finish easy winners. 

 Sinead Barrett wins a free as she catches the ball

Belcoo battled gamely early on, Sam Martin and Sinead Barrett competing well in the middle sector. Barrett driving through to hit her sides first score on 6minutes. It would be the sole score of the opening period with the visitors hitting 1-4. Cara Gray had made a good block in defence with Nathan Carroll Magee and Siofra McAloon trying hard. 

The second quarter seen Belcoo have the wind advantage and while they clipped over three neat scores, St. Pats worked some really good goals as they moved the ball crisply between hands to carve out the openings. 

Michael Burns had kicked a 45 while adding a point after an excellent turnover by Sam Martin near the sideline. Eoin Corrigan tagged on a free but St. Pats had a firm grip on things. Scarlett O’Connor was applying good pressure out the field but St. Pat’s were impressing with their clever interplay and use of the ball.

 Nathan Carroll Magee strides forward during the contest

The third quarter seen the visitors continue to hold sway. Belcoo managed two points in this period, a Michael Burns free and a good score by Rhys Ray who was brave to collect a loose ball in a crowded area and fire over. 

Michael Burns was to account for all four points in the final quarter while some of our younger players did well when brought on. Aodhan Cullen making a few good saves in goals with Riona Keaney, Emilie McCallion, Finn Maes and Lisa Lavery working hard.
