P4 Go Games

08/11/2014Posted by Ciaran Grant

P4 Go Games
Date: 8th November 2014
Venue: Andersonstown Leisure Centre
There were six P4 boys playing for Brid Óg in the latest round of Go Games in Andersonstown Leisure Centre and they put in very impressive performances today.
The first game was against Ardoyne and the Ógs dominated from start to finish. James S scored a hat-trick and this was added to by Liam and Ciaran, who scored his first goal for Brid Óg today. I’m sure there are many more to come. The other James had very little to do in goals, so when he came out of nets for the second game against St Gall’s he made up for his lack of action by netting four times. Conor, Oisin and James S also got goals. St Gall’s had a couple of attacks and Liam made a couple of smart saves. The ball did end up in the back of his net, but the goal was disallowed as the St Gall’s forward had encroached into the semi-circle.
The final match was against Carryduff who had two very big players on their team and who had dominated their two previous matches. However, the Ógs put in a very brave performance and matched their larger opponents throughout. The game ended scoreless, but it was a very exciting encounter with the sliotar being pulled on fast and hard by all the Brid Óg players. Carryduff hit the post and Liam narrowly missed a chance near the end as both teams gave everything they had. A draw was probably a fair enough result and the two teams were applauded off the pitch by the spectators. At the end of the games the players were told that ironically their best performance of the day was the one game they didn’t win!

McGowan Cup

26/10/2014Posted by Ciaran Grant

P5 McGowan Cup and Shield Hurling Tournament
Date: 26th October 2014
Venue: Woodlands
The McGowan Cup was held at Woodlands on Saturday and with 8 teams competing this was the biggest tournament in the history of the event. With 18 games required to be played, it was a busy day for the organisers. Brid Óg were defending the trophy and as there has been a great turn-out at the P5 and P4 games in 2014, two teams were entered in to the competition.
There were two groups of four teams so each side had three games to play and at the end of the group stage Brid Óg and St Gall's had topped the group with St Enda's and Lamh Dhearg joining them in the cup semi-finals. In the shield competition the Brid Óg Belfast team would face St John's and O'Donnells would meet Ardoyne.
Brid Óg received a blow when Dara, who had played very well in the group games had to leave early due to a prior engagement. This might have been on their minds as a slow start allowed Lamh Dhearg to get an early goal and the Ogs didn't really recover from this. Zach took a blow to the hand, which required a visit to A&E (though thankfully his had was only bad swollen) and Liam and Rory also took knocks. The injuries took their toll and Lamh Dhearg advanced to the final. There they would face St Gall’s who had drawn their semi-final with St Enda’s. The rules stipulated that in the event of a draw, the total number of points scored by the teams in the previous matches would be used to separate the teams and it was via this that St Gall’s went through.
In the shield semi-finals Brid Óg Belfast battled well against St John’s, but were defeated by a couple of goals. Ardoyne beat O’Donnells in the other semi-final and went on to beat St John’s by a point in the shield final.
In the cup final, St Gall’s took control early on against Lamh Dhearg and never looked back. Although the Hannahstown boys fought gamely throughout the game they were not able to get close enough to their opponents on the scoreboard and St Gall’s ran out deserved winners of the McGowan Cup for 2014.
This was the conclusion of the outdoor hurling season for this group of players. They have played very well all throughout 2014, hurling excellently on all occasions and conducting themselves in a sporting manner throughout. They have put in some tremendous performances and have been a credit to Brid Óg. Attention now turns to the indoor games. With the North Antrim league and Co Down games coming up in the new year we hope we will continue to see the excellent numbers coming to training throughout the winter in Hunterhouse on Thursday evenings.
