All County League

15/06/2013Posted by Darren Hamill

Unfortunately our U14s could not continue their fine form as they fell to a first defeat against a strong Tir Na Nog team who had several very skilful players on show on the day. In some ways we allowed these players to show their skills without putting them under pressure. Highlights for the Og's were the performance from Phelim in nets and Peter Henvey's goal and point.

All County League

01/06/2013Posted by Darren Hammil

Brid Og's U14 hurlers have been entered into Div 2 of the Antrim All County League and we have been drawn against Saint Mary's Rasharkin, Pearse's, Tir Na Nog, Saint Paul's and Glenavy. The teams are scheduled to play home and away so it should be a very busy and competitive couple of months.

Our first scheduled game was due to be against Saint Mary's Rasharkin but unfortunately our summer weather resulted in the Musgrave pitch being waterlogged and unplayable. Our next game was due to be against Saint Paul's again at Musgrave but our opponents did not field. Finally the Og's got a competitive game against the Pearse's at their Cricky pitch Our U14s seemed to relish the sunny conditions as they went on a scoring spree accumulating a massive 6-20 to 0-0 score. There was link up play between the back lines, midfield and forwards and the Og's hurled brilliantly on what was a very bumpy pitch.

Our next game was a home match against Saint Joseph's Glenavy. The U14s continued were they left off against the Pearse's game with a high scoring 6-8 to 1-0 scoreline however the Og's hit 24 wides during the 40 minutes of hurling.

Our U14's have won both their games and hopefully they can continue in a similar fashion during the rest of our league campaign.

U13 challenge game v Saint Paul's Holywood

27/04/2013Posted by Darren Hamill

Date:27th April 2013
Venue: Musgrave Park

In preparation for the imminent hurling league games a challenge match was arranged against Saint Paul's Hollywood.
Unfortunately Saint Paul's only had 11 players so young Pearse and Martin volunteered to play for our opponents to even the numbers.

The Og's lined out with Jack in nets, Brendan, Brendy, Sean and Thomas in the back line. Our midfield quartet were Ciara, Ciaran, Conor and Joseph with Andrew, Darragh, Diarmaid, Ronan and Shane occupying the forward positions.
The Og's started the better and Ronan got the first score of the game (goal) with a bursting run through the St Paul's back line. The game continued in a similar manner with the Og's having most of the possession however we found it hard to convert this to scores and there were several goal mouth skirmishes with the sliotar going narrowly wide from Andrew, Darragh, Diarmaid and Shane.. Our forward line especially were playing very compact and there were large areas of the pitch with no players at all. The Og's got further scores from Ronan, Conor and Sean but our opponents were getting more confident themselves and young Pearse scored a goal for his adopted team (I will have to explain that you knock the sliotar wide when playing for our opponents! ). They also added a point late in the half.
At half time Pearse decided he had enough of playing for St Paul's and retired from the game and Brendan donned their yellow and blue jersey. After getting another trade mark goal Ronan retired to the U14 training and Darragh, Sean and Conor stepped up their game and get scores themselves. Again our wide count started to increase and the Og's were awarded several 65's. Joseph who had put in a shift in midfield replaced Jack in nets. St Paul's use of the quick long poc out at times put our defence under pressure and they got several goal scores during the second half to make the final couple of minutes exciting but the Og's held on for the victory.

I would like to thank Ciaran for bringing his team to Musgrave this afternoon and it was great to get an U13 game to spread our players over the two age groups. The hurling from both teams was of a very high level and they were given great support from the sidelines
PS Tara you were right the boys couldn't get the same amount of scores as the girls!

Brid Og Panel: Andrew, Brendan, Brendy, Ciara, Ciaran, Conor, Darragh, Diarmaid, Jack, Joseph, Martin, Pearse, Ronan, Sean, Shane, Thomas
