S Antrim P4 Go Games

16/11/2013Posted by Ciaran Grant

S Antrim P4 Go Games
Date: 16 November 2013
Venue: Andersonstown Leisure Centre

The P4s played in the third week of the Go Games at Andersonstown Leisure
Centre. Due to the large number of kids who had turned up to play for Brid
Og in the previous games, Eire Og and St Brigids both entered separate teams
and they faced in each in the first match. Eire Og had the majority of
possession and a good long range strike from Zack put the Ogs ahead. They
continued to put pressure on the St Brigid's goal, but couldn't get a second
goal. Near the end St Brigid's managed to get an equaliser and the game
ended in a draw.

The second match was against Rossa. Again, it was Zack who did the damage as
he scored both goals in a 2-1 victory. In the final game Liam was untroubled
in goal, as again Eire Og had most of the ball against Sarsfields. However,
they were unable to find a way past the Sarsfield goal-keeper and the match
ended scoreless.

It was another unbeaten weekend at the Go Games and across the three
sessions the Ogs have played very well and have shown that at this age they
are a match for any other side in Belfast.

Onwards and Upwards!

Event: P4 Indoor Go Games

The Brid Og team attended another week of the P4 indoor games. The team consisted of a mix of P4 and P3 players and it was great to see so many kids turn out for the event, with a total of 13 players being available.

This presented a challenge for the mentors in terms of getting all players an equal opportunity to play in the games, however best efforts were made to rotate the players as much as possible. The fixture list initially showed a game with Davitts, followed by games with Rossa and Sarsfields, however the late arrival of a few teams meant quick changes to the planned fixtures. As a result, the Brid Og team faced our old sparing partners Sarsfields in the first game. This was a close fought affair with the ball continuously moving up and down the full length of the field and the players covered much ground in the short game. Despite the best efforts of the Brid Og players, Sarsfields managed a score and with only a few minutes remaining the Brid Og team were unable to get the sliotar over the line and the game finished 1-0 to Sarsfields.

The next match involved a game with Rossa and this was also a tough and physical game. Rossa scored early in the game. However the team were not phased by this and a great forward pass from midfield enabled Dara to place the sliotar firmly in the back of the net. The Rossa forwards managed to breach the Brid Og defence again and registered another score. The young Brid Og team fought hard to try and equalise the game but a few wides and a few good saves by the Rossa goalkeeper meant that this was not to be. The game finished Rossa 2 Brid Og 1.

The final game was against Davitts. This was a fast moving game  with all 13 players getting some game time. The Brid Og team had many chances but again they were wide of the goal and for a while it looked like the game would end in a scoreless draw. Zack K managed to break free from midfield and with a firm strike, the sliotar ended up in the back of the net. A determined Davitts team was not deterred and a forward managed to break through the Brid Og defence and score, bringing the game level. The Brid Og defence sensed the danger and some great defending ensured that the game remained a draw. The game finished 1-1. All of the players showed great skill and commitment throughout the games and adapted well to changes in position.

It is fantastic to see so many players turning out and long may this continue. Well done to all of the players for participating and showing great team spirit. Thanks to the parents for their support, to Tara and John for helping with the team and also to Kieran Megraw for organising the event.

P4 South Antrim Go Games
Date: 19th October 2013
Venue: Andersonstown Leisure Centre

A busy day for the hurlers of Brid Og began with the opening round of South Antrim Go Games for P4 children. The Ogs were placed in a tough group with St Johns, Rossa and Sarsfields.

The first match against St Johns ended in a 1-1 draw. Brid Og put plenty of pressure on the St Johns goal and were rewarded with Zack K scored a goal. The Johnnies had their chances also and Rory made some fine saves in goal. However, one shot did get past him for an equalising goal. 

Brid Og moved up a gear in the second game against Rossa. They came away with a 2-0 win and again it was Zack K who did the scoring with both goals. The final opponents were Sarsfields. After his good performances in midfeld, Zack K moved in to goals. The game was end to end and both sides had chances, though the Ogs defence and goalkeeper coped very well with the Sarsfield attack. Peter scored the only goal of the game when he hit a long-range shot into the corner of the net.

So at the end of the games Brid Og had recorded a very impressive 2 wins and 1 draw. There were 12 players present and along with the P6s, who played later a total of 22 children played for Brid Og on Saturday.
Onwards and upwards.

Brid Og: Liam, Peter, Zack K, Zach W, Matthew, Jack, Conn, Conor, Mael, Rory, Oisin, Darragh
