Seniors: Newtown 2-3 Belcoo 0-9

Box Score

Jul. 4, 2010

A late goal from Newtownbutler denied Belcoo victory in this third installment of the starred fixtures this season. Leading by three points as the game entered additional time Belcoo will feel hard done by as they felt the ball had gone out of play in the build up to the equalising score.

In the opening period Belcoo had the wind in their favour and led 0-5 to 0-0. John Carrigan, Ronan Ferguson (2) and Kieran Leonard (2) were the scorers. Newtown struggled to get up the field but some wayward shooting from Belcoo ensured Newtown were still very much in the game at the interval.

Newtown came out after the break and fired in 1-2 within the opening 5minutes. Ryan O'Keefe capitalised on a defensive mistake to run in one on one and finish low into the bottom corner while Brendan McBrien was among the points in this period.

Belcoo began to dominate proceedings following this early setback and  scores from Kieran Leonard, a John Carrigan free, Jonathan Feeley and a Ronan Ferguson free kick against the strong wind had seemed to give Belcoo the victory but McBrien popped over a point to reduce the deficit to three points before the contraversional equalising goal was awarded.

TEAM: James McGrath, Eoin Leonard, Mark McGovern, Ryan Leonard, Ryan Dolan, Niall Leonard, Declan Leonard, John Carrigan (0-2), Christopher Leonard, Paul McGrath, Sean McNulty, Kieran Leonard (0-3), Paddy McGinley, Ronan Ferguson (0-3), Gavin Leonard. SUBS Used Jonathan Feeley (0-1)
