Éire Óg 1-09 St.Agnes 1-07

9/17/2011Posted by Fergal

Éire Óg overcame St Agnes in the Junior Championship last Friday night at Casement to set up the final against the reigning Champions, O’Donnells.  Neither side were able to establish any significant lead on an emotional night for the Aggies with a moments silence before the game held in respect of Aggies Player and Juvenile mentor, Michael McLean, who passed away recently.


The game started slowly with the Aggies coming away with the best of the initial encounters.  Declan McLarnon and the rest of the Aggies full forward line causing all manor of problems for the Ógs defence and stacked up a lead of 0-03 to 0-00 points.  Stephen McCaffrey and John Paul Dunney knocked over points to bring the Ogs back into the game but the sides then both traded points to bring it to a 0-05 to 0-03 to the Aggies.  A well taken goal from Ciaran Rice after a blistering run down the left wing from Peter Elliot and interchange from McCaffrey gave the Ógs their first lead in the game.


The game could have changed just as quickly again as some sloppy defending from the Ogs left the Aggies through on goal but for a brilliant save from keeper Rowan Vernon.  The Aggies however were able to slot over another point to bring the game level at half time, 1-03 to 0-06.


The Ogs started strongly in the second half knocking over 2 quick frees from Eamonn Wilson and points from Fra Grimley and Elliot to gain a 4 point lead and looked like they may be coming away with it.  However the Aggies were right back in it when Declan Crummey slipped through the Ógs defence and fed the onrushing Conor Caldwell who buried it in the back of the net to bring it back 

to a 1 point game. The Ógs were however able to restrict the Aggies to one more point and 2 points from Conor McKenna and Grimley sealed the win for the Ógs

Eire Og 1-10 St.Agnes 0-08

Eire Og battled their way once again to a 5 point victory over local rivals St.Agnes in this close Division 4 encounter at Woodlands.

Both sides were closely matched in the opening stages of this Division 4 League tie.  The scoreline after 16 minutes read 0-2 apiece with Niall O'Connor opening the scores for the ogs with Eamonn Wilson grabbing the second.

It was 0-5 to 0-5 at half-time with ever reliable ogs forwards, playing against an ever changing breeze, chipping in with five points between them.

The Aggies were made do things the hard way when their Centre-Half Back was given his marching orders.

The second turning point of the game again went the way of Eire Og with Niall O'Connor being pulled down in the box and being awarded a penalty. Colum McAuley, hot off the heels from his goal at the weekend, duely stepped up and slotted home the penalty leaving Eire Og 3 points clear.

Three more points were added to that goal with Eamonn Wilson hitting a sublime score for the right hand sideline and JP chipping in with two frees.

Conor McKenna, JP and Stevie "The Bomber" capped off a solid performance for the Ogs who went on to rack up another two scores in the game leaving the final score 1-10 to 0-8.

Eire Og 1-10 St.Malachys 0-03

5/22/2011Posted by Admin

After a stuttering start to their 2011 Division 4 campaign Eire Og comfortably beat St.Malachys in their first match in the return fixtures of the league, winning 1-10 to 0-03 a ten-point victory at Cherryvale.

Colum McAuley's goal as well a number of other well-taken scores paved the way for the Ogs to continue to victory. St.Malachys looked to be off to a good start after slotting over a simple free but the Ogs, choosing to play against the strong breeze in the first half, kept to scores level at half time.

The Colum McAuley goal in the second half proved to be the turning point in the game. A quick free found the alert McAuley and he did not need to be asked twice to fire home Eire Ogs goal from an acute angle.

Seamus Holmes, Eammonn Wilson, Fra Grimley and Conor McKenna amongst others added points and Eire Og were well on thier way to victory being 1-5 to 0-2 up inside the opening 15 minutes of the second half.

The ogs managed to get more scores on the score sheet playing with the strong breeze, which saw them run out comfortable winners in the end with the game finishing 1-10 to 0-03.
