Eire Og Camogie Blitz

26/04/2015Posted by Paddy Rice

Eire Og Camogie Blitz

Woodlands

26th April 2015

Sunday saw the first outdoor Camogie Blitz of the year at woodland.  The weather gave a chance of rain but it turned out a glorious morning and perfect camogie conditions.

The first match was always going to be tough as the Ogs were drawn against Rossa.  The girls were just finding their feet when Rossa had scored.  However, the Ogs pulled one back before half-time. The second half was up for grabs, but nothing was gelling for the girls.  Rossa sneaked one in during a scramble in the last minute and it finished 2-1 for Rossa.

Next up was St. Pauls. Eire Og was starting to play like more of a team and the goals starting flooding in.

After that we played the Johnnies and again all over the pitch the players were playing well and putting in some nice shoulder tackles.  This was a good hard physical match which the Ogs won comfortably.

The toughest match for the Camogs was the last against Gort na Mona.  They matched us for commitment and both sides didn’t want to give an inch.  However, Eire Og proved to be too strong and the girls did us proud yet again. 

All in all Eire Og Camogs did the coaches and themselves very proud and were a force to be reckoned amongst the top clubs in Belfast.

S Antrim P6 Go Games

28/03/2015Posted by Gavin Kane

 

Event: S Antrim Go Games

Date: 28/03/15

Venue: Colin Valley

It was the turn of the P5/6 team to field at the go games at Colin Valley pitches. We were able to field a team of nine on the day and this meant that all of the kids were able to maximise their game time. The team consisted of a pretty even split between P5 and P6 players.

After some warm up drills, our first game involved an encounter with Sarsfields Belfast. Matches between these two teams are normally hotly contested and in recent times the Brid Og team have come out on top. However our opponents started much more quickly than us on this occasion and took control of the game from the outset. The young Brid Og team couldn’t settle into any sort of formative play and as a result Sarsfields managed to find the back of the goal. Sensing defeat the Brid Og team sparked into life and managed to scrape a late equaliser in the dying moments of the game.

Our second game involved a line out against Rossa. Brid Og started and finished this game the stronger team and managed to register three goals in quick succession. The score line remained well in favour of the Brid Og team who finished comfortable winners.

Our final game involved some game time with Portaferry. In the run up to the game the team were reminded that the Portaferry team would likely be our strongest opponents on the day and that they would come out of the blocks quickly, strongly and skilfully. This game was nip and tuck and each time the Brid Og team scored the Down men managed to breech our defences and draw level. The game involved a few interesting goal mouth events which would have required ‘hawkeye’ to assist the referee in his decision making. One involved young David  drop kicking a ball into the back of the net and another involved a Portaferry strike which rolled cleanly along the goal line but stayed on the right side of it. At the final whistle the official score was Brid Og 2 –Portaferry 1.

Thanks to Darren and John for helping with the team and refereeing. Thanks to Kieran for organising the games and to the parents for their encouragement and support. Most of all thanks to the players for their efforts on the day and for doing themselves and their clubs proud. This young team is one to be reckoned with and may they continue to have much success throughout the rest of the season. A special thanks and welcome must to go Naoise Curran who played his first hurling game for Brid Og.

Team: Pearse, David, Zack, Jack, Eoin, Darragh, Finlay, Conlan, Naoise 

 

Ulster Provincial Tournament

07/03/2015Posted by Ciaran Grant

 

The U10s travelled down to Magherafelt to play in the Ulster Provincial Blitz where the faced games against Omagh and St Colmcille's from Tyrone, Down side Carryduff, South West Antrim team Moneyglass and Belfast's Ardoyne. It was fantastic to see that 12 kids had made the long journey out of the city for these games.

The opening game was against Omagh. Brid Og dominated possession and David put the ball over the bar three times. However in these games onky goals are counted. He did manage to put one below the bar but Omagh got a goal of their own on a rare break upfield. The next game was a high scoring match against Carryduff. Zack, Jack and David all scored, but the Co Down side managed a couple more to get the victory.

St Colmcille's also had 12 players, so it was agreed to let everyone play. Therefore space was limited and although Brid Og again dominated possession, this game had 0-0 written all over it from the start and that is the way the match panned out. Following this the Ogs had a narrow defeat against Moneyglass who recorded a 2-1 win, with David again scoring the Brid Og goal.

The final games was against the North Belfast side of Ardoyne. Brid Og wanted to end on a high and they succeeded in doing so with Conor MacE and David both scoring in a 2-0 win.

Though the results were a little disappointing there were good performances all round from the Brid Og players and there were many positives to take from the games. First of all the display should have been rewarded with better results - certainly the two draws should both have been victories. There were a couple of players missing who probably would have made a difference to the scorelines. Also, there was a debutant today, as Finlay came along for the first time. And most importantly it was great to see so many kids travelling to play for Brid Og. We have to admire their commitment and that of their parents also.

Brid Og: Finlay, Oisin, James B, Jack D, James S, Zack, Boutrous, Dara, James K, Conor MacE, David, Liam
