U13 Girls Make It Two From Two

Box Score

Sep. 9, 2019

U13 Girls Section A: Erne Gaels 0-1 v 4-25 Belcoo

Belcoo Under 13 Girls made it two wins from two games as they eased past a young Erne Gaels side in Belleek on Monday evening. The O’Rahilly’s weren’t at themselves in the opening 10minutes, it was laboured and error ridden with the high standards they’ve set for themselves, not being reached. When they did up the tempo and kept things much more simple, there was a lovely flow to their play and they picked off some excellent scores after some neat moves.

Ciara Parker did have the ball over the bar inside the opening minute but the visitors were sluggish in most areas early on. Goalkeeper Serena McKeown did well to save and gather another dangerous ball while her kickouts were excellent throughout. Siofra McAloon, Eimear Gray and Ciara McGuinness were to the fore early on as Erne Gaels made several forward drives that needed some good defending from the aforementioned trio.

Siofra McAloon bursts out of the defence

Belcoo would register a goal when Rachel Nolan found Ciara Parker and she drilled low to the net. Eve Barrett added a point before a good wee move between Scarlett O’Connor, Abbie McGovern and Riona Keaney seen Barrett split the posts once more. Again the defence was called into action, Caitlyn Nolan and Lily Mae McNulty on hand to clear the danger.

Belcoo eventually found a rhythm and penned the home team back. Ciara Parker knocked over a point before she thumped a powerful shot to the net after Emilie McCallion had scurried forward. Parker who net another after Riona Keaney won the kickout while Abbie McGovern slotted a point from the right side.

By half time Belcoo had four more points on the board, Eve Barrett and Ciara Parker on target before Riona Keaney cleverly fisted two points over the bar as she approached the crowded goalmouth. Half Time: Erne Gaels 0-0 v 3-9 Belcoo

Belcoo would fly from the blocks after the interval. Scarlett O’Connor registering a fortuitous goal while they registered six points in a five minute spell. Ciara Parker (3), Eve Barrett, Scarlett O’Connor and Rachel Nolan.

Rachel Nolan takes on her opponent in tonight's victory

By this stage the bench was emptying. Eve Barrett’s last act was to kick a point. Ella McGovern was quickly into the action to chase back after her opponent and rob her of the ball, in doing so, she created a score for Scarlett O’Connor. Emilie McCallion registered a neat point while O’Connor drove through and finished well with her last kick before being withdrawn.

Casey Nolan showed good pace down the right side to get onto a Riona Keaney pass, the ball was worked infield for Abbie McGovern to point. Full back Siofra McAloon joined the attack to kick a good score while McCallion followed up moments later.

Lisa Lavery did well on the left to win a ball and Riona Keaney soon popped over a point. Erne Gaels applied some pressure late in the game but young defenders Megan Maguire, Ciarenn McGrath and Orlaith McAloon all surrounded and crowed out the Belleek players. The hosts did get one score, a free kick from close range but the game finished with two well take points from Ella McGovern.

Up next for Belcoo is an away game in Garrison next Monday night, throw in 7pm. Training continues on Wednesday at 7pm.
