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. 

 

2013 Season Approaches for Ógs Seniors

17/04/2013Posted by Admin

Pre-Season is almost done and dusted and the boots have been dusted down for this weekends opening Division 4 League fixture for our Senior squad.

For the majority of Pre-Season the Éire Óg Seniors (and some minors) took to MMK Gym in Conway Mill, throwing in a mixture of circuits, sprints and seemingly endless running up and down the Mill stairs. With that over and the added Sunday morning “ball work” sessions it is safe to say that the initial work and long wait for a hopefully longer 2013 Season is over.

The Ógs go into this year’s campaign under new management (Crick Browning & Barney McGeough) much like the rest of the division, hoping to achieve promotion to Division 3. Having dispatched of St.Pauls Hollywood, St.Endas Wolftones 2nds and Naomh Padraig in challenge matches building up to this weekend the Ógs go into their opening league fixture with some confidence of achieving a similar result.

The open and unpredictable Antrim Division 4 got under way last weekend with the majority of sides feeling they will have a chance of promotion to Division 3. The Ógs however were not in action over the weekend, instead having to wait until this weekend for our ‘new’ Division 4 berth against a Pearses’ side that overcame John Mitchel’s 2-12 to 2-03 in their opening fixture. This weekends match will take place at the Crickey pitch on the Cliftonville Road at 3pm, feel free to come along and support your club.

You’ll be able to find all of Éire Ógs fixtures on the County site here - http://antrimgaa.net/fixtures-results/?compID=20159&leagueTable=y

In the Junior Championship, where last year we were beaten by eventual winners Ardoyne, the Ógs have been drawn in the Preliminary round (against a team I currently can’t remember).

More information on team outings and match reports will appear here in due course….

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.
