Box Score

Oct. 10, 2010

Teemore came from seven points down to claim a one point victory over Belcoo on Sunday afternoon in this Senior Division 1 league encounter.

Teemore opened the scoring through a Stanley Curry free kick after 4minutes before Belcoo had their best spell of the game. Paul McGrath carried the ball down the centre of the field and after exchanging a one-two with Kieran Leonard, McGrath fired low into the bottom left hand corner of the net. It was McGrath who added the next score of the game from a placed ball and Sean McNulty knocked over a well taken score from play. Kieran Leonard tapped over a free to leave it 1-3 to 0-1 at the quarter mark.

Stanley Curry then kicked a trio of frees to bring Teemore back into the game but Ciarán Flaherty responded with a Belcoo free. In the closing moments of the half Belcoo's Niall McGovern bust forward and was upended in the penalty area resulting in a penalty kick to the home side. Paul McGrath stepped up and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way with the spot kick to ensure Belcoo went in at the interval 2-4 to 0-4 ahead.

Upon the restart Ciarán Flaherty extended Belcoo's lead to 7points with a long range point from play but Belcoo were not to score again for the next 25minutes. Teemore began to dominant the midfield battle as they took some clean catches and won the majority of break ball. Curry was again on target twice with free kicks and Declan Fitzpatrick got Teemore's only point from play in the game when he blazed over from close range.

Gerry Quinlan found the net after a ball broke kindly for him midway through the half and with the game now 2-5 to 1-7 Teemore sensed they could go ahead and win it. Quinlan was to find the net again 5minutes later to give Teemore a two point advantage with 9 minutes remaining. As well as the quickfire goals Teemore had opportunities to increase their lead but they shot some bad wides meaning their was only two points.

Belcoo were having a bad second half and with time against them they pressed forward looking some scores however their attacks broke down on a number of occasions. Paul McGrath did point a free but it was the only score they could muster as Teemore held on for the victory.
