Brid Og v Glenavy U13

08/09/2012Posted by Darren Hamill

Brid Og 2:14 Saint Joseph's Glenavy 0:4

Venue: Musgrave Park

Date: 8th September 2012

Brid Og's U13 hurlers continued their series of challenge games against Saint Joseph's Glenavy at Musgrave Park. This game was also being used in preparation for the Nipper Quinn Championship for our younger players.

In a very tight first half both defences were on top and it took a while for the first score. Ronan C duly obliged with the first point of the game when he broke through a couple of tackles and struck the sliotar over the bar. This seemed to give the team the confidence to go for scores and Conor G and Ronan added to the score sheet. Unfortunately the Glenavy midfield at times were dominating the match with their powerful running game and only a couple of wrong decisions from the Glenavy forward line meant we maintained our lead at Half Time.

John grouped the team together during the break and mentioned that the score line did not reflect the game and that as a team they needed to get closer to their opponents and use the techniques such as the short pass and hand pass to get them out of difficult situations. This resulted in an excellent second half for the Og's with some great linkage play from the back lines through midfield to the forward lines. This put Glenavy under immense pressure and the Og's pulled away with 10 unanswered point scores. (Ewan, Ethan, Conor, Peter and Ronan getting the scores)

I would like to thank Gavin and Banjo for bringing along their team to Musgrave. This was a very competitive game and all our players got a good run out. I would also like to thank our players parents and family on the sidelines who pushed the team on and finally a big thank to all the players from both teams for producing a great spectacle of hurling.

U14 Div 1 Hurling

09/06/2012Posted by O. Lennon

Saturday 9th June  :  Division 1 u14 Hurling, Musgrave  :   Brid Og 2-4 v Glenavy 2-5

On Saturday 9th June Brid Og u14 hurlers played host to South West side Glenavy in the Division 1 league.

In perfect conditions Glenavy got off the perfect start with an early goal and point. However as the half wore on Brid Og began to gain decent possession at midfield and pressed for scores. After a few near misses their opening score did arrive with a pointed effort. However Glenavy hit back with a second rather fortunate goal when the ball rebounded off the crossbar hitting the diving and helpless Ruriai in goals, to roll over the goal line.

Not to be deterred Brid Og finished the half strongly, dominating possession and were justly rewarded with a well taken goal to leave the half-time score 1-1 to 2-1 in favour of the visitors.

As the second half got underway the lads from Brid Og maintained their dominance in all sectors and rattled off two great points. And if were not for some wayward shooting and stern Glenavy defence, there would have been several additional scores. Brid Og continued to pressurise and were rewarded with a second goal as the game entered the final 5 minutes.

Now two points in arrears Glenavy responded to the challenge as the Brid Og lads tired. In a four minute spell Glenavy recorded four great points to retake a 2 point lead with the game entering injury time. Brid Og, however did not give up the ghost and fought their way back up the field and were awarded a 21 yard free. With the last puck of the game the effort for goal whistled over the crossbar to leave the home team the wrong side of a one point defeat.

While defeated on the day the players who turned out can be extremely proud of the high standard of hurling displayed throughout, in what transpired to be one of their best performances of the year. With all bar two players still aged 12 or under, this performance augers very well for a young team building for next year.

Well done to all 13 who turned out on the day and have consistently represented this team over the past number of weeks.

Brid Og v St Galls U14 League

19/05/2012Posted by Oliver Lennon

Saturday 19th May

Brid Og 1-4 v St Galls 4-9


The u14 hurlers continued their league campaign with the visit of St Galls to Musgrave on Saturday 19th May.  Our numbers were somewhat depleted and as a result we fielded 13 players for the start of the game.

St Galls, aided by a slight breeze, started the stronger and two quick-fire goals followed by two points really set the tone for the opening 20 minute period. St Galls continued to dominate proceedings and added a further goal and 4 points as the half progressed.  However, the players from Brid Og showed great determination and began to drive forward with some conviction, and but for some wayward shooting should have narrowed the deficit. Their just rewards did arrive and persistence paid off when they slotted their first score of the game. St Galls responded with a couple of points to leave the halftime score Brid Og 0-1 St Galls 3-9.

On the restart Brid Og immediately increased the tempo of their game and gained a stranglehold around the middle diamond. Midway through the half two points were added and with Brid Og now playing the better hurling they added a very well taken goal. Wayward shooting continued to hamper progress on the score board with a number of opportunities for goals and points missed. St Galls too were guilty of missed opportunities; however Brid Og can claim a second half victory!

Final score Brid Og 1-4 St Galls 4-9.

All credit to the understrength team who battled for the full 40 minutes and showed a terrific performance in the second half. While well beaten by a stronger St Galls side, the team has continued to progress and is showing improvements on a weekly basis.
