w/b 11 Sept 2017


The U14 Camogie season drew to a close with the trip to Drumaness which we lost one goal to nil.


In the U16 ‘A’ Football Championship An Riocht beat Warrenpoint 3-17 to 4-10 to qualify for the semi-final.


The U12 footballers lost to Burren at Dunavil on Sunday; despite a fair share of possession the boys were unable to get the scores to repeat their earlier two victories over the same opposition.


In Senior Football An Riocht welcomed Bryansford to Dunavil and recorded a 2-13 to 0-13 win thanks to a strong second half showing. An Riocht did just about enough to complete this league double over Ford on Friday evening. The home side lacking in confidence kicked three wides before Jack Maginn opened the scoring for a Ford team still recovering from Monday’s championship disappointment. A David McKibben free made it two before in the eighth minute Ronan McAlinden pointed a free to get An Riocht onto the score board. Ford replied with a second McKibben free and a long range effort from Aaron Somers before in the twelfth minute Noel McArdle registered a close in free for the home side. A point from Keelin O’Higgins and two more McKibben frees moved Ford seven two clear after twenty minutes and they introduced Philip Bonny and Peter Brannigan to strengthen their hand. Noel McArdle added two more An Riocht frees before in the twenty eighth minute Rory Cunningham pointed their first from play and they took the lead with an injury time goal when James Colgan and Declan Doyle combined to provide Rory Cunningham with early ball and he drove his shot high into the net past Marc Reid. There was still time for Jack Maginn to double on a McKibben free and send the teams in level at the break 1-5 to 0-8.

Bryansford’s wide play and An Riocht’s use of a sweeper had allowed Ford to create a man over from uncontested kick-outs and Conor Maginn put them ahead on the restart with McKibben’s fifth free doubling that advantage. When the home side pushed up Ford were forced to go long and James Colgan and Ronan McAlinden dominated the aerial exchanges resulting in four points from Declan Doyle, Conor Clarke and McAlinden (2) from play and from placed ball.

Ford got in for two quick points to restore their lead but the An Riocht defence marshalled by Martin Clarke were considerably tighter in this second half. Sean Clarke advanced from half back for the lead score and An Riocht had outscored Ford four points to one in the final quarter before James Colgan forced home their second goal late on to seal the win.
