Falls Park League

21/04/2013Posted by Darren Hamill

P6 Belfast City Council Hurling League

Date: 21st April 2013

Venue: Fall's Park

Brid Og took part in the third weekend of hurling games at the Fall's Park venue. Our opponents this weekend were Rossa, Pearse's and Bredagh and all our games were played on pitch pnumber 3.

Our first game was against Rossa. This game started in a muddle as Rossa had given us some players to even the numbers and then some of our own players arrived when the game had already started. It took to half time to sort out our team and by this stage Rossa had taken the lead . Playing with the wind in the second half the Ogs got tighter to their opponents and Shane got a point for the team however the damage had been done in the first half and Rossa came away with the victory.

Our second game was against North Belfast side the Pearse's. It was the Og's turn to lend players and Adam, Conlan, David and Emily volunteered to don the green and yellow of our opponents. In this game Shane, Jack, Pearce S and Oisin dominated their opponents and feed the sliotar to Pearse H, Zack and Martin in the forward line. The two Pearc(s)e's, Shane and Niall got on the score sheet and the Pearse's got a late score against us. I would also like to mention the high standard of hurling from the Og's players who played for the Pearse's.

Our final game was against Bredagh and it was probably the best game of hurling this group of young hurlers have played so far this season. Before the game started the players were told to close the space and make it difficult for our opponents. Straight from the throw in the Og's hurled brilliantly and the brothers Niall and Shane combined to get several scores. Again our midfielders were putting in a shift and it was great to see our players pressurising their opponents. Unfortunately Bredagh only had 11 players so at half time Conlan, Emily and Pearse H replaced Adam, David and Martin. Once again the Og's started the better and Jack , Shane and Pearce S covered large amounts of the pitch. Conlan, Gerard and young Zack defended brilliantly in front of birthday boy Oran although our opponents did get a consolation goal late in the game. At the final whistle the Og's were the victors and have now 7 wins and 2 defeats in this series of games.

I would like to thank Tommy and Karl for organising these well run games. As usual our support was vocal from the side lines and this pushed our players on during these games. Finally a large thanks to our players. Every week our numbers are increasing and it was great that we were able to field 14 players today. It was also great to see the confidence in our players performances and they are now gelling into a very competitive hurling team.

SW Antrim airbourne hurling blitz

20/04/2013Posted by Darren Hamill

U10 SW Antrim airbourne games

Date:20th April 2013
Venue: Saint Patrick's College Ballymena
It was the turn of our U10's to take part in the SW Antrim airbourne games at the now familiar venue of Saint Patrick's College Ballymena. The teams participating were Eire Og, Creggan, Moneyglass, Tir Na Nog, Saint Enda's and host club All Saint's Ballymena.
Unfortunately we were only able to field four players and of course two of the players had to be called Pearc(s)e. Although our numbers were small this allowed our players more room to perfect their skills. As in the previous airbourne blitzes the emphasis was on the skills of lifting, striking, catching, blocking and hooking.
Eire Og v Creggan
Our first game was against Creggan and the Og's started brilliantly. With points being awarded for the above skills the Og's tally was high when all 4 players were involved in a series of hand passes from Gerard in defence, through our midfield duo of Pearce S and Jack to our forward Pearse H. It was great to see the work being done in training evident on a match day.
Eire Og v Ballymena / Saint Enda's
As Saint Enda's had extra players, 2 of them fielded for All Saints Ballymena. Our players referred to this new opponent as "Ballyenda's". Unfortunately we were slow to start in this game as we seemed to forget about the skills and tried to get some target scores from long poc's. Thankfully we started to play again as a team and the scores began to rise with the main skills being lifting the sliotar and hand passing and catching although Pearse H also performed a perfect frontal block which deserved more than a single point as the sliotar dropped at his feet.
After a group photo Tom mentioned that we would go into a series of 5 minute games with the winners staying on. After a wait without a game the Og's were summoned to play Saint Enda's
Eire Og v Saint Enda's
The Og's again started this game slowly as both teams found it hard to dip and lift the sliotar. When we did get the ball into our hand our hand passes were not as accurate as earlier games. In a very close encounter Saint Enda's edged the game 10 to 8 however they were awarded 3 points for a hand pass into the target area.
After another brief spell on the sidelines we were again summoned this time to play "Ballyenda's" again
Eire Og v Ballymena / Saint Enda's
The game was a tight affair again as both teams competed for the ball. Even though there was plenty of space both teams seemed to have difficulty in getting clean possession. At the end of the 5 minutes the Og's were called the winners with a repeat 10-8 scoreline. Unfortunately we were not able to continue on our winning run as the players had to leave in order to get to Musgrave for training so we did not get a chance to field against Moneyglass or Tir Na Nog.
I would like to thank Tom for inviting us to this blitz. Although our numbers were low for these games any time a player has a hurl in his hand he is learning the game.
Well done the Og's: Gerard, Jack, Pearce S, Pearse H

Falls Park League

14/04/2013Posted by Darren Hamill

Belfast City Council P6 Hurling League
Date: 14th April 2013
Venue: Fall's Park
Brid Og's hurlers took part in the second week-end of games in the Belfast City Council supported P6 hurling league. This weekend the Og's were drawn against Ardoyne , Gort Na Mona and Saint Agnes. At the end of the three games the Og's had recorded another 3 victories and did not concede a single score against them . All the players positions were rotated and Shane was top scorer with points in all the games. It was also great to see our younger players Pearse H, Sophia (P4's) and Zack (P3) scoring points and goals for the team. Pearce S also got on the score sheet with a well taken goal. It must also be mentioned that a successful team needs a strong back line and credit has to go to the great work rate from Gerard, Jack, Oisin, Pearce S and Shane who all put in a shift for the team.
I would like to thank Tommy and Karl for organising the games today. I would also like to thank Rab from Gort for lending us two quality players during our game. Thanks again to our parents who give up their Sunday morning to cheer on the kids and a final thanks to the players who again hurled brilliantly
Well done Brid Og
Pearce S
Pearse H
