S Antrim P6 Go Games

P6 South Antrim Go Games

Date: 19th October 2013

Venue: St John's Indoor hall

Brid Og's P6 hurling team played brilliantly today in the Go Games organised by South Antrim. The games were full rules and played in Saint John's indoor hall.

The Og's were scheduled to play Ardoyne, Davitts, Lamh dhearg and we were also able to fit in an extra game against Sarsfields. The games themselves lasted 8 minutes straight and we had an excellent panel of 11 players from P4 to P6.

Each game today was tight and the standard of hurling on show from all the teams was off the highest level.

Our first game was against Ardoyne and our opponents took an early lead when they managed to get the sliotar pass Conlan in nets. The Og's however came back strongly and Fintan levelled with a great strike himself. Again the sliotar moved up and down the hall and Ardoyne's skilful forward was able to score his second goal. For the second time the Og's tried to get an equaliser and through hard work and pressure from Niall M and Pearse, Fintan was able to get his second goal of the game and the game finished 2-2.

Our second game was against the Davitts and this was a totally different squad from the first game. Young Zack took responsibility in nets and during the game he made some excellent stops. This game was very physical in nature and had a couple of controversial moments. The Davitts appeared to score a goal inside the black semi circle only for us to have a goal ruled out for encroachment within this area. The Davitts then scored a great goal from a strong pull on the sliotar but again the Og's battled back to get a goal from Niall D. At the whistle then the score was noted as Davitts 2 Brid Og 1 but we could easily have been Davitts 2 Brid Og 2 or 1:1 as the hurling played by both teams was excellent.

Our third game was against Lamh dhearg and it was interesting to see that both Gerard and Niall D who played in last weeks Nipper Quinn Final were especially up for this game. As all the players had now played a full match it was decided now to introduce substitutes during the games and as Lamh dhearg only had 5 players Eoin volunteered to play for our opponents. The Og's raced to a two goals lead and Niall D seemed to celebrate these goals a little bit more. Credit to Lamh dhearg however they came back at us and scored two goals of their own past Adam in nets. In a scene similar to last weeks Nipper Quinn Pearse was introduced into our forward line late in the game and he had enough composure to get the winning score of the game.

Officially we were only due to play the 3 games but Sarsfields offered to play us an additional game. Again we decided to play substitutes and Niall volunteered to be our keeper in this game. As in the Lamh dhearg game the Og's took a quick 2 goal lead with Adam and Oran getting the final touches. Unfortunately the changes during this game didn't help the continuity of the team and our opponents got two goals of their own so after the four games the Og's had played their part in 4 exciting games of indoor hurling.

Our goal scorers on the day were Adam, Fintan, Niall D, Oran and Pearse and it was great to see that the team did not panic when we went behind in several of the games. Our four goalkeepers on the day Adam, Conlan, Niall D and Zack all performed brilliantly and their  saves definitely kept us in the games we played.

Gerard was his usual reliable self in his defensive position and Eoin, Garrett and Niall M played excellent hurling in the various positions they were asked to play in.


Thanks to Kieran for organising the games today and well done to the young whistler who refereed all the games today. Thanks to all the players parents and family for their support during the games and final thanks to the players who hurled brilliantly today

Ulster Camogie Blitz

Ulster Camogie U10 Blitz
Saturday 12th October
Eddie Irvine Centre, Baloo Road, Bangor
Eire Og played in their first Camogie Go games today organised by the Ulster Camogie Association. 

Carla, Sophia, Elena, Niamh and Alannah all demonstrated excellent agility and skills today.  They played against bigger and older girls from Bredagh, Rossa, Portaferry and Ballygallget.  They scored goals in all their matches and never gave up despite not winning a match.  Sophia fought off 2 girls at a time to win possesion and struck the ball well down the pitch in the air and scored goals against Bredagh, Rossa and Ballygalget.  Elena showed determination in going for the sliotar no matter what size the opposition and was rewarded for her efforts with possession on many occassions. Niamh flitted about the pitch gettting to the ball before her competitors and was particularly good in defense. Carla demonstrated her agility and flexibility in all areas of the pitch scoring goals in all the games. She demonstrated sportmanship by playing for Ballygallet and even scored whilst playing for them against Rossa.  Alannah despite being 3/4 years younger than the other teams won possesion and played an important role in the team.

All on the sidelines commented how well they played and we were invited to play a friendly against Rossa. Lisa from Ulster Camogie has offered to run a mum (or dad) and me session to get some more coaches involved and advised of how to access funding for kit for the girls. The girls all went home with smiles (and chocolate) on their faces and we look forward to more matches in the coming weeks.

Well done girls and thanks to all those that have supported us in getting to this point including the hurling coaches (Darren, Gerard, John D, David and Ciaran), the Eire Og committee for their support, to Anne Costello for her training session, to Siobhan Poulter for her help and advice and to Lisa for arranging the games today. Thanks also to those parents who attended today for their support and encouragement and those who have agreed to attend the upcoming camogie foundation training.

Friendlies at Sarsfields

16/09/2013Posted by Ciaran Grant

Friendly matches
Location: Sarsfields
Date: 16/09/2013
Eire Og travelled to Sarsfields to play friendly matches. We were joined there by St Pauls. The players present were mainly from the U8 squad, supplemented by Gerard, Adam and Shane. Shane was confined to goals as he is still overcoming an injury.
Undaunted by older opposition, this young team lined out to play the U10 team from St Pauls. The game was 13-a-side, so space was restricted, but there was good hurling from both sides. Unfortunately in the 10 minutes playing time neither side could get a score. Both teams had chances. Eire Og had slightly the better chances, especially from a late Pearse free, which was saved by the goalkeeper.
Next they faced the U10s of Sarsfields, with the teams being reduced to 10-a-side. Eire Og took full advantage of the extra space and hurled very well. They were on top of things throughout and a goal and a point from Niall gave them a victory. Shane kept a clean sheet for the second game in a row.
Unfortunately some St Pauls players had to leave so Eire Og didnt get an U8 match against them. They did play one against Sarsfields. Again the Ogs were the better team and Pearse scored a goal and a point. Niall added a point and although Sarsfields got a point of their own Eire Og finished as deserved winners.
Onwards and upwards.
Thanks to Deaglan and everyone at Sarsfields for inviting us along for these games.
Eire Og: Adam, Conlan, David, Gerard, Jack, Liam, Megan, Niall, Pearse, Peter, Shane, Sophia, Zack
