Ogs make U14 Feile final

15/04/2013Posted by Ciaran

Eire Og\St Agnes 2-1 Mcdermotts\Lagmore 1-3

The ogs aggies combination reached their first finalsince amalgamating a couple of years ago after a one point win against the McDermotts Lagmore combination. 

Played in windy conditions the ogs aggies came through a tough semi final by the narrowest of margins and was all the more surprising was that the win came after only  being level at   the interval despite  playing with the aid of a strong wind. With the mcdermotts \Lagmore keeper in excellent form the ogs were unable to rack up any real scores. Some excellent goal keeping combined with some poor shooting saw us  register only one score - a goal from Paddy Carroll- in the half, while lagmore racked up three points.

 At half time with the scores level and   a strong gale against there was a concern we may have blown our chances as McDermotts\lagmore  had some excellent players around the middle who were in dangerous form in the first half. 
 However that was not to be. With John mccaffrey ruling the roost at midfield, paddy Carroll dropping back to play sweeper supporting our superb full back line of Daniel hill,  Ronan donnelly and Eoghan Duffy and Conor erskine mark hamill and ewan rush providing a platform for attack we dominated the game. Playing possession football,  the length of the park we racked up a further goal and a point through young oisin mckenna who was in deadly form throughout. Again,  only for some excellent goal keeping from the macs goal keeper we would have racked up another goal. The macs \lagmore combination got only one score in the second half and that was an unstoppable shot that keeper jack robinson could do little about. 

Under feile rules each half only lasted 20 minutes but it seemed an eternity as the young ogs held on for a famous victory and take the amalgamated side through to their first championship final.

It would be unfair to pick out a man of the match as all the team subs and all gave their all. Next up Gort na Mona in the final.

First Camogie Match For Eire Og

13/04/2013Posted by Tara Baird

History was made as Eire Og had their debut playing Camogie against St Paul's Hollywood. The girls enjoyed a friendly match followed by a small party in the changing rooms. 

As the age range was wide the area in font of the goal was zoned out for the younger players only. Every girl scored at least one goal and Eire Og won easily against St Paul's with the final score being 12-1. The girls were not interested in the final score just enjoying every second of their match. There were lots of smiles all round and St Paul's have invited us back for more matches.

Thanks to the girls Carla, Erin, Megan, Andrea, Sophia, Alannah and the birthday girl Ciara. thanks to Conlan for helping out in goals for a while. Special mention to Sophia for leaving a birthday party early just to get to the match. Sophia had also already played at the U8 Go Games in the morning. All the girls played brilliantly and with great spirit and sportmanship. Thanks to Peter at St Paul's for inviting us and Darren for arranging it and Gerard for being helping us remember the day by taking photos.

We are looking forward to more matches and hope to add more girls to our ranks. The girls showed today that they could take their place against the likes of Bredagh. Watch out the Ogettes are coming!

U14 Eire Og\St Agnes 0-3 Gort na Mona 3-3

09/04/2013Posted by Ciaran

The combined ogs aggies team  were well beaten in their first league match of the season against a much physically bigger and stronger gort na Mona side

With a biting wind running across the pitch conditions weren't great and it was gort who made the early running particularly though their impressive 6 foot midfielder.  Despite some excellent defending from our full back line along with keeper jack Robinson gorts quickly ran up 1-2  without play and it was 20 minutes before we registered our first score through a point from john mccaffrey. Despite some promising attacks however this was to prove to be our only score of the half

The second half saw gorts continue to dominate possession though  with eoin Phelan  and eoin duffy in superb form scores from gort were limited with many forwards under severe pressure when shooting . Excellent work from conor erskine and john mccaffrey gave the platform for some surging attacks but  unfortunately we weren't able to capitalise fully and only registered further 2 points while   Gorts racked up another 2 goals

All in all the ogs Aggies combination tried hard but were well beaten against a much physically bigger team. However, that said  when we got the opportunity we played some excellent football and defended with huge determination. Best for us were jack robinson, eoin pelan , eoin duffy conor erskine and john mccaffrey
