N Antrim League

16/01/2016Posted by Ciaran Grant

N Antrim League (grading divisions)
St Patrick’s College, Ballymena
Saturday 16th January 2016
 
Brid Óg’s U10s played in the grading groups of the N Antrim league at St Patrick’s College in Ballymena. Following an opening defeat to Rossa, the Ógs had a great day thereafter, winning 4 and drawing 1 of their remaining 5 games to finish joint second in the group.
 
Conor opened the scoring against Rossa as Brid Óg started on the front foot. However, Rossa came in to the game and overturned the score and came away with a 3-1 win. After that initial blow, Brid Óg faced a tough game againts Lougheil Shamrocks 1st team. They responded fantastically, winning 4-2 in a fast and exciting match. Dara scored 2 goals, with James B and Conor adding to this. Next up was St Ergnat’s of Moneyglass. Brid Óg were dominating possession, but couldn’t make the breakthrough. Donncha was sprung from the bench and seized his opportunity by scoring 2 goals to give the Ógs the victory. As St Enda’s 2nd team hadn’t fielded, Brid Óg had a lengthy break before their next match against Davitt’s. They had shown their worth by earning a draw against Rossa, so a tough match was expected. This turned out to be the case. Brid Óg bossed most of the game and near the end a James K shot sneaked in. However, long after the match was finished it transpired that the referee did not count the goal due to an earlier infringement. This was much to the bemusement of everyone, including the Davitt’s mentors! There was one final game to play against Lougheil 2 and Conor scored a neat goal from a narrow angle to win the match 1-0.
 
At the end of the games Rossa had topped the group with 11 points after winning 5 and drawing 1 match. Brid Óg and Davitts were joint second with 9 points. So, we await notification from N Antrim as to what division we will be graded in for the competition proper next weekend.
 
Thanks to Owen Elliot and others of N Antrim for organising the competition and to the All Saints mentors for officiating at the games. Also, to Darren and Frank for their help with the team and to the travelling support who gave the boys much needed encouragement in some very tight games.

S Antrim P6 Go Games

14/11/2015Posted by Ciaran Grant

 

Ten Brid Og P6s and P5s turned on in terrible conditions at Sarsfields yesterday. So, first off they should be commended for showing such dedication to play. There were two games against Sarsfields played, with another against St Paul’s sandwiched in-between.
 
Brid Og started off quickly and strongly and put in two very good performances in the first two games. In the wet and windy conditions, scores were hard to come by, but Liam and Zach were the main scorers on the day. The rematch against Sarsfields, was Brid Og’s thrid match in a row and some of the players were literally frozen as the Brid Og performance level drop significantly. Their opponents had come from the sanctuary of the changing rooms and took the victory.
 
Thanks to Gareth, Gary and Deaghlan of Sarsfields for organising the games. Thanks again to the kids for turning out in horrendous conditions and the parents who braved the elements to lend their support. And thanks to Gavin for organising the team and to Darren for refereeing.
 
Squad: Finlay, Conor MacE, Aidan, James S, James K, Jack, Zack, Liam, Tetchin, Conor McK

 

 

P6 Go Games

24/10/2015Posted by Gavin Kane

 

Venue: Musgrave Park

Date: 24/10/15

It was the turn of the Og’s to host the P6 games. The programme showed Rossa, Gort Na Mona and Brid Og to play. Games were to be 15 minutes each and would be full rules. Gort Na Mona failed to field on the day, which left Brid Og and Rossa to use the slot and maximise game time. It was agreed that the game would be 2 halves and with the good weather and quality of play, not much attention was paid to the duration of each half, which resulted in approximately 40 minutes of hurling. The game started as 9 aside but with a few late comers this eventually expanded to 12 a side. Both teams showed great skill with some fantastic displays of blocking and hooking. It was fantastic to see the Brid Og players taking the opportunity to catch the ball, especially from the Rossa puck out . It is good to see the benefits of some of the training session coming into play. Brid Og got off to a flyer with a very early go and the team quickly racked up the scores.

The game continued in this vain and our backs only really saw activity from the Rossa puck outs. James Kelly was on fire and scored at least 3 goals including one which was a replica of the one scored by Joe Canning in the Leinster final this year against Kilkenny. Zack also scored a scorcher from our own half. Finlay again showed his athleticism in covering most of the field. Dara and Donnacha put in great shifts in goals. Jack and James again put in great shifts in defence. Special mention must also be made of Aidan and Connor who played their first competitive game for the Ogs, both should be very proud of their performances. All of the team played brilliantly on the day and the final score was 6-3 to 0-1. The Rossa played a fair game in the face of strong opponents. Thanks to Joe for refereeing. Thanks to all the players and parents and also to Kieran for organising the games.

Squad: Dara, Donnacha, Zack, Finlay, Conor, Aidan, James, James K, Jack, Zack, Dan, Tristan
