Minors Beaten Again

Box Score

Apr. 1, 2011



Belcoo Minors suffered a third straight defeat in Section B following a three point defeat at home to St. Joseph’s Ederney on Friday evening.

A gale force breeze sweeped straight down the field and it was Belcoo who had the advantage of the elements in the opening half. Belcoo however failed to capitalise on this and only managed 0-4 in this half. Daniel Ray, Mark Nugent, Aaron Leonard and Aaron Dolan knocked over the scores.

With Belcoo slow to start and failing to make use of the wind, it allowed Ederney to dominant proceedings and it was nifty corner forward Niall Maguire who impressed as he scored 1-3 of St. Joseph’s 1-6 in the 1st half. He managed to cut threw the Belcoo defense on numerous occasions and clipped over some good points along with a well taken goal, fired into the roof of the net beyond Patrick Sweeney midway through the half.

With the wind helping them in the 2nd half, St. Joseph’s continued to pick off more points and it was only some scrappy goals from rare Belcoo attacks which kept the home side in with a chance of winning. St. Joseph’s however held there nerve in the closing 5minutes to secure their second win of the year and condemn Belcoo to a third straight defeat.

Results from Sunday's Fixtures: Derrylin 1-10 v 4-11 Irvinestown and Lisnaskea 0-15 v 2-6 Erne Gaels.
