S Antrim P4 Go Games

14/02/2015Posted by Ciaran Grant

P4 S Antrim Go Games
Venue: Andersonstown Leisure Centre
Date: 14th Feb 2015

It was the turn of the P4s, and a couple of younger kids, to play at the Go Games this week. We managed to get a second team added to the roster after Loch Mor pulled out. St Teresa's also did not field, so both Brid Og teams faced games against Gort Na Mona and O'Donnells.

There were 11 kids playing for Brid Og and joining the team were Darragh, Conal, Shea and young Aodhan from St Agnes. The Brid Og Belfast team played O'Donnells first and Darragh scored a debut goal to give the Ogs the win by 1-0. The Brid Og Antrim team played Gort Na Mona and had a reasonably comfortable 2-0 victory, with Conor scoring both goals. The Belfast team then played Gort and came away with 3-0 victory. Donnacha grabbed a hat-trick including a long range shot from his own end-line, which travelled the full length of the pitch and caught the goalkeeper by surprise. The Antrim team then played out a comfortable win over O'Donnells with James K being the main scorer this time. To round off the games, the two Brid Og teams played each other, but no-one was counting the score in this one.

It was another good day for Brid Og, with no goals conceded in the 4 matches and was good warm-up for the North Antrim league the following day. 

Brid Og squad: Conor, James K, James S, James McC, Liam, Darragh, Conal, Shea, Aodhan, Donnacha, Ciaran

N Antrim League

Event: U8 North Antrim Indoor Hurling League

Venue: Girls Model Belfast

Date: 07/02/15

It was the turn of our U8’s to participate in the prestigious North Antrim Indoor Hurling League. We had 7 players available on the day. Our opponents included St Endas, Davitts, Eoghan Ruadh and Ballygalget. The schedule also showed St Pauls, however this team did not field on the day. The games were of 7 minutes duration with 5 players on each team. Our first game was due to be against St Pauls, however with this team not fielding it was agreed that each team would receive a bye.

Our first game in earnest was against Eoghan Ruadh and the your Brid Og team dominated the game from the outset. The players hurled brilliantly and kept their calm throughout. All players stuck to their allocated positions which made our back line strong and our front line unstoppable. The game ended with a 3-0 win.

The next game saw us face Ballygalget. This team had performed strongly in their first few games and we knew that this team would likely present the toughest challenge of the day. The game was an end to end affair with both teams forcing the ball forward in to their opponents half. The Brid Og team were getting the upper hand, however with an infringement of the protected semi-circle a penalty was awarded. The Ballygalget team scored and unfortunately the Bid Og players could not get the equaliser, despite valiant efforts.

The team were encouraged during the break and were reminded that the day was far from over. Our next line out was against St Enda’s. Again Brid Og took early control of this game and the Brid Og keeper was largely a spectator throughout this game. The scoreline at the whistle was Brid Og 5 St Endas 0.

After some rest and refreshments we lined out for our final game. Our opponents Davitts had featured strongly in their previous games and as a result the Brid Og team were set up in a defensive manner. This was a physical game and in fairness both teams hurled brilliantly. Our front line pounded the Davitts defensive line and managed to register 3 scores in quick succession. At the final whistle the scoreboard showed Brid Og 3 Davitts 0.

The results will now be submitted and we will await the overall results and fixtures for next week. The team should be proud of their efforts. Conor MacElhatton and James Kelly provided a strong mid field presence throughout the day, James provided an impenetrable back line and even managed to score from the back line with a volley that would have tested a senior keeper, Oisin and Donnacha played brilliantly in all of the positions allocated to them including goals and young Kieran and James Mc dazzled with their front line performances with both getting on the scoresheet.    Hopefully we will see these players run out again next weekend.

Thanks to Frank for helping with the team and being official score keeper on the day. Thanks to the parents for travelling to the venue and for providing essential support. The biggest thanks and congratulations must go to the team, they performed brilliantly.

Team – Conor Mac, James K, James Mc, James, Kieran, Oisin, Donnacha.

Friendlies at St Galls

06/12/2014Posted by Ciaran Grant

Brid Ógs P4 and P3 kids were invited to friendly matches by St Galls. The games were on the 3G pitch at Dunville Park and Davitts were also attending. In the first game the Ógs played their hosts in a 13-a-side match using the full length of the pitch. At the end of the game Brid Óg had scored 3 goals to St Galls 1 goal. There were 3 James’s playing for Brid Óg and it was the youngest James who scored 2 goals. The was added to by a long range score from Conor.
Davitts only had 5 players, so a couple of St Galls P5s joined them for the next match. They got off to a flyer when a shot crept over the line in their first attack. The teams were evenly matched after that, but James K scored a goal direct from a long range sideline and Conor grabbed a second, with his shot just crossing the line this time. Davitts scored a good point to round off the scoring.
Liam and Donnacha stayed on to play for Davitts againts St Galls and the other P4s joined in with the P3s in their match against St Galls. This game had plenty of goals at both ends, though the addition of the P4s helped Brid Óg shade it.
Brid Óg: James x 3, Conor x 2, Liam, Donnacha, Emma, Cara, Mia, Laura, Ronan, Oisin
Thanks to David from St Galls for the invite. These games rounded off 2014 for the P4s, who have put in very impressive performances throughout the year.
