P6 Go Games

Venue Falls Park

Date: 15th June 2014

Brid Og's P6 hurlers fielded a team in the go games held at the Falls Park and for once the games were played in glorious sunshine although there was a strong breeze during the games.

Our opponents today were Saint Enda's, Saint John's and Gort Na Mona and we also managed to fit in a quick half of hurling against Saint Paul's.

At the end of the games we had recorded two narrow defeats against Saint Enda's and Gort Na Mona who played some great hurling and had beaten a very strong Saint John's side. In the Saint Paul's game I don't think any scores had been registered by either team when the referee blew the whistle for half time.

Unfortunately today we did not have the numbers that we had fielded in previous games but all the players who showed up today put in a shift. Thanks to Ciaran and John who organised the team and rotated the players position and thanks to our players parents and family who cheered us on in the sunshine.

Venue: P6 Games Falls Park

Our P6 hurlers took part in another week of the games at Falls Park. For once the rain stayed away and temperatures held up, resulting in much more pleasant conditions than of late.

On the day 16 players turned out. This was fantastic to see but would make it difficult for everyone to get some game time. After quick consultation with the organisers it was agreed that Brid Og would field a second team at the event.

Our first game was against Loch Mor. The Brid Og team had suffered a heavy defeat to this team a few weeks previous and this was foremost in the mind of the mentors and players. A quick huddle with the players was used to dispel this apprehension and the game began. The game was refereed by a Loch Mor mentor and it must be said that this was done very fairly in a tough and physical game. From the outset the game was a white knuckle ride which did not do much for the blood pressure of the mentors. The Loch Mor men marked tightly and our players struggled to break free. Young Niall D had a fantastic game in mid field and tortured the Loch Mor mid field and backs. At the end of the first half we had edged ahead with a point. During the break the players were reminded that their opponents would come out fighting and that they did. The second half was played at break neck speed which saw Loch Mor equalise before the Brid Og team responded to edge ahead. The game finished Brid Og 0-2 – Loch Mor 0-1.

Our second game was against St Pauls and the Bird Og team dominated the first half of this game scoring 3 points. The St Pauls frontline could not penetrate the Brid Og defence and at half time the scoreboard read Brid Og 0-3 St Pauls 0-0. With 16 players present St Pauls ran out virtually a new team in the second half, all with fresh legs. This quickly showed as the Bird Og panel struggled to keep pace with the fresh legs. The players rallied and fought hard to defend their scoreline, however St Pauls managed to score a late goal which brought the scores level. The second half of the game was played well beyond the 7 minute time but the Brid Og players held on and managed to finish with a draw.

At this point players were rotated between the 2 Brid Og teams. The third game was against Sarsfields. At this stage the Bird Og team were truly exhausted and entered the game with the fuel warning light on. The Sarsfields team contained some rather large and skilful players and they tormented the Brid Og back line throughout the game. The Brid Og team fought hard and tried their best throughout but Sarsfields ended the day with a win.

It was fantastic to see so many players turn out today and to see them gel and perform as a team. Thanks to all the players (all of whom should sleep well tonight) and to the parents for travelling and supporting the team. Thanks to John and Tara for helping out with the team. Finally thanks to Kieran and Michael for organising the games.

In the other side of the fixture list a young Brid Og team came up against Sarsfields in their first game.  The first half was a one-sided affair with Sarsfields dominating initially and brought great defensive displays from Caelem, Adam and Daniel.  In the second half, Brid Og pressed the Sarsfield defence, Katie and Michael making scoring chances but Sarsfields held out. 

The second game against O’Donnell’s was a more balanced match.  Brian covered the entire pitch, working hard defend and make chances for Loracn and Faith in forwards.  In the end O’D’s won through by a goal

The final match was against the Loch Mor team again.  This was another very competitive match with a few fresh legs added in.  Niall M, Conlon and David were introduced and worked hard throughout.  Adam in goals was very effective at keeping the Loch Mor attack out but couldn’t stop the points.  In the second half, David broke away to score a goal but we couldn’t get the final score which would have brought us level on the day.  For some of the players this was their first opportunity to get game time and to play competitive matches and credit must go to all our players who rose to the occasion.  

Brid Og Panel: Zack, Michael, Eoghan, Faith, Katie, Niall D, Gerard, Adam, Conlon, Pearse, Lorcan, Brian, David, Daniel, Niall M and Caelem.

Falls Park P6 games

Sunday 12th May 2014

Brid Og played in the second week of the Belfast City Council organised Sunday morning P6 GoGames at Falls Park.
This week the opposition was St Gall’s, St Enda’s and Ardoyne.

The first game against St Gall’s was a baptism of fire for the team as they came up against a well drilled and skilful team who were particularly adept at accurate passing.  Despite a very determined effort and some great defending, the St Galls midfield started to pick off points from long range and with wind advantage in the second half took their scoring opportunities very well to win this game.
The second game against St Enda’s was a more balanced game with some very competitive tussles `up and down the pitch. The scores were level at half time and with wind advantage in the second half, St Enda’s took a lead which Brid Og could not overcome by the final whistle.
The final game against Ardoyne saw the Brid Og team in full flow from the start.  Brian’s long puckouts were us a big advantage from which the forwards were able to attack the goals and were rewarded with scores.  In the second half Ardoyne pressed the Brid Og goal repeatedly but the defence held out and a fantastic team effort ensured a Brid Og win.

Panel: Brian, Caelem, Conlon, Daniel, David, Eoghan, Jamie, Katie, Michael, Niall, Pearse.

Thanks Tommy and Kieran for organising the fixtures and pitches.  Thanks to all the parents who brought the players and braved the elements (again).  Thanks to Darren for undertaking the refereeing role so well .       
These games are a fantastic opportunity for our players to play games and develop their skills in a conditioned environment.
