Gaels Win U12 Game

Sep. 30, 2017

Under 12 Division 2: Enniskillen Gaels 8-18 v 1-15 Belcoo 

It was the home side who emerged victorious from today’s under 12 clash in Brewster Park. The score line didn’t do the young O’Rahilly’s justice however as they had some fine passages of play. They would come to rue missed chances with some errant passing and loss of  possession on moving forward.

Belcoo had a good start, winning the throw-in and attacking well but putting the first shot wide. The Gaels counter-attacked to put two points on the scoreboard. This was followed by another move into Belcoo’s half but it was thwarted by an excellent block from Cara Gray, the ball then gathered by Sinead Barrett who cleared it to Sam Martin to drive it forward to Michael Burns who narrowly missed. Despite Nathan McGovern foraging for ball up front and Thomas Parker putting pressure on his player,  Enniskillen won possession and responded with a third point before Burns registered Belcoo’s first and only point of the quarter.  The Gaels scored another point just before the whistle blew.

The second quarter throw-in was well won again by Sam Martin who worked the ball to Eoin Corrigan setting up Michael Burns for an fine goal in the first minute. Belcoo weren’t able to replicate unfortunately, Enniskillen attacking again to register two goals and a point before Burns split the posts. The gap was to widen again, Nathan Carroll-Magee working hard in goals making a save but caught on the rebound for the home side to find the net for a third time.  They followed this with four more points leaving the score line reading 3-9 to 1-2 at the end of the quarter.

Enniskillen made the first attack of the third quarter resulting in their fourth goal. A foul on the ever battling Scarlett O’Connor resulted in a free which was converted by Eoin Corrigan.  This was followed by another point from Michael Burns before the home side answered it when they found the net. Burns pointed again before a move involving Eoin Corrigan and Eve Barrett lead to Sinead Barrett registering a point for the visitors. Michael Burns converted another free but the Gaels were to hit a purple patch registering another 1-6 before the whistle.

The final quarter proved to be Belcoo’s best of the match proving their resilience. They started well again but a shot at goal by Michael Burns was well saved. The visitors showed great heart and work rate throughout with the introduction of Rhys Ray, Eimear Gray, Lisa Lavery and Finn Maes. Eoin Corrigan registered the first point of the quarter from a free kick. Rachel Nolan did well in the unfamiliar position of full back with her counterpart Cara Gray. Another rebound off Nathan Carroll-Magee resulted in the Gael’s seventh goal. The subsequent kick out was won by the O’Rahillys’ to find the newly introduced Rhys Ray, passing to Eoin Corrigan whose shot at goal was saved. Enniskillen registered another point before Corrigan scored another free and Michael Burns scored an excellent point from a sideline ball. Another 1-2 was registered by the home side but it was the O’Rahilly’s who had the final scores, three points by Michael Burns followed by two from Eoin Corrigan.

Team: Nathan Carroll-Magee, Rachel Nolan, Cara Gray, Sinead Barrett(0-1), Eoin Corrigan(0-5), Michael Burns(1-9), Sam Martin, Eve Barrett, Scarlett O’Connor, Nathan McGovern, Thomas Parker, Eimear Gray, Lisa Lavery, Emilie McCallion, Finn Maes, Rhys Ray, Kayce Sweeney, Lorcan Leonard, Patrick Magee.
