U14 Football: All county Feile final at casement

15/05/2013Posted by Ciaran

A great day in Casement park for the All county final. We were aware that Moneyglass had one particularily big guy who scored the majority of their scores. A key task was to stop this threat.
In the first half we played with a breeze towards the A'town road end. From the start we dominated possession and for long periods kept them in their own half. Some excellent football was played.
Moneyglass made a few breaks up the pitch and always targetted the big fella who was positioned at full forward. Ronan Donnelly did an excellent job of stopping that threat.
The first half ended 0-2 to 0-1. This was very disappointing following our dominance, but we spurned too many chances.

The second half started well for us and we got the first score from a free kick. However the breeze was now working in Moneyglass favour and had actually picked up a bit. They found it easy to kick long balls into our half, where we worked hard to get it out.
Moneyglass kept the ball in our half for long periods of time. The defence did very well to limit the scoring with Jack being called into action on a number of occassions. However a number soft frees given against us eventually resulted in Moneyglass turning around the game. The big fella was an excellent free taker off both left and right foot.
We did have a great opportunity towards the end of the game when Brendan Mohan beat 2 defenders and was determined to finish with a goal. However he was taken down from behind, a cynical foul which the Moneyglass team had used a number of times. We were unable to convert the resultant free, but we ended the game in an attacking style.
Looking back the guys were very disappointed. A few decisions our way and missed opportunities...what could have been. I know that spectators felt that we played the better and more attractive football. We will definitely fancy ourselves to beat them given another opportunity.
Standout performer on the day Ronan Donnnelly for his dominance over the big fella.

Final score: Éire Óg/St Agnes 0-3 Moneyglass 0-6.

Ogs Lift Feile Trophy!

21/04/2013Posted by Liam

Eire Og/St Agnes 1-5 Gort Na Mona 1-2

The amalgamated Eire Og/St Agnes U14s lifted their first silverware of the season at Rossa Park on Sunday, winning the prestigious Feile B Football final.  Going into the final against Gort Na Mona, the Ogs/Aggies were undoubtedly apprehensive having been out-muscled by the Gorts in a league encounter two weeks previously.  However any early nerves were soon forgotten as the lads were able to exploit the wide open spaces of Rossa Park to their advantage.  Early points from Ewan Rush and Jarlath Devlin settled the team and they were able to dominate possession with John McCaffrey and Ewan adding to the score line before half time.  In defence, Paddy Carroll was alert to every threat while Eoghan Duffy, Ronan Donnelly and Eoin Phelan snuffed out attack after attack.  Mark Hamill and Conor Erskine linked up superbly at times to ease the pressure on defence.  However, due to some questionable refereeing decisions, the Gorts were able to clock up a point and a goal in the dying minutes to level the scores at half time.

The second half was more of the same with the Ogs/Aggies dominating.  A goal and a point (both from frees) from John gave the Woodlanders a  4 point cushion again but proved to be our last scores of the match.  Gorts responded with a point leading to a nail-biting last ten minutes as the Ogs/Aggies defended as though their lives depended on it.  After what seemed like an eternity, the final whistle blew to jubilant scenes on the pitch and among the many parents and supporters behind the wire.  This was a truly magnificent effort from a remarkable bunch of lads who put in a performance which will live long in the memory. 

Squad:  Jack Robinson, Ronan Donnelly, Jarlath Devlin, Eoghan Duffy, Paddy Carroll, Conor Erskine, Daniel Hill, Mark Hamill, Paddy Mulgrew, Ewan Rush, Donal Mackin, Ciaran Hynds, Oisin McKenna, Eoin Phelan, John McCaffrey, Adam McKenna, Conor Boyle, Dermot Loughlin, Brendan Mohan.
