With only two games remaining, one more point will ensure Belcoo get the chance to defend their title in the Final.

This evening the Junior team missing several regulars due to senior commitments, holidays and injuries but they managed to avenge their Championship defeat against the same opposition 6 weeks ago. In fact Belcoo Juniors hadn’t played a single game since that Championship meeting on July 14th.

Roslea’s Aaron Mulligan stroked over an early placed ball before Damian Holleran drove through the Roslea defense to drill over Belcoo’s opening score. Patrick Burns added a free while Brendan McKenna leveled matters with a good score from play. This first period was quite scrappy but playing against a strong wind it was Roslea who could have added more score. The usually reliable Mulligan missed a few simple chances for Roslea but at the other end Belcoo were struggling to make use of the wind as Aidan McGrath and Shain Gallagher fired wide when well placed.

At the interval it was 0-4 each with Gregory Connolly and Daniel Mohan on target for the visitors while Patrick Burns and Aaron Dolan registered for Belcoo in the closing stages of the half.

The sides traded scores in the opening 15minutes of the second half as Burns and Seimi Rafferty hit points for Belcoo with Mulligan and Rory Connolly getting Roslea’s scores. Belcoo had a few scary moments at the back as a few Roslea attempts for points dropped in around the goalmouth. Patrick Sweeney in the Belcoo goals was forced to make a good save when he initially allowed a ball to bounce off the post and into the hands of a Roslea attacker. Moments later a misplaced pass in the defense gave Roslea another opportunity for a goal but the attacker fired wide under pressure from Sweeney and the impressive Martin Corrigan.

Having survived without the concession of any score, Belcoo then opened up a three point advantage as Gary Maguire, Aidan Leonard and Shain Gallagher hit scores. Mulligan and Burns then traded frees before Mulligan hit the last score of the night in added time. Full Time, Belcoo 0-10, Roslea 0-8.

TEAM: Patrick Sweeney, Martin Corrigan, Shane McAloon, Ryan McGovern, Siemi Rafferty (0-1), Shain Gallagher (0-1), Niall Cullen, Patrick Burns (0-4), Aidan Leonard (0-1), Aidan McGrath, Ian Corrigan, Damian Holleran (0-1), Aaron Dolan (0-1), Gary Maguire (0-1), Eunan Mullally.
