U18 Football Clann Na Gael v An Riocht

At the U18 Football Clann Na Gael v An Riocht played in Newry, An Riocht drew 3-10 to 2-13. This was a poor performance and only U16 players John Joe Eakins, Christopher Flanagan and Philip Curran could be happy with their game. It will take the ‘Minor’ players to step up if we are to have any chance in the South Down Championship. An Riocht led seven nil after ten minutes but trailed eleven nine by half time. A good third quarter had us lead sixteen eleven before Clanns levelled it again and despite twice going ahead in the closing minutes we were unable to hold out for the win.

Showing five changes from last week’s starting twelve, An Riocht opened the scoring with a Ronan Campbell free but went three one behind within the first ten minutes. A Paddy McComiskey point rallied An Riocht and Ronan Campbell added three frees as An Riocht hit the front again with Conor Clarke landing a long range point just before the break for a 0-6 to 0-3 interval lead.  Two Ronan Campbell frees on the restart made An Riocht comfortable until that black card handed the initiative to Clan Na Gael but An Riocht staged a heroic resistance limiting the home side to just two points while breaking out to equal that tally at the other end and register a deserved win.

U18 Footballers v Burren

The U18 Footballers were the only team to have game time over the past week.

 

Burren, the Division Two winners, were visitors to Dunavil and An Riocht really put it up to them in the first half.


The sides were level twice in the first ten minutes, Darragh Campbell with a brace from play for An Riocht. An Riocht were working the corners very well, there was urgency, direction and determination about their play and once Michael O’Rourke put An Riocht ahead from a tight angle they went on to add four more unanswered first half points; O’Rourke brought his tally to 0-3 and Ryan Spiers and John Sands chipped in with points apiece. Disciplined defending was the platform for An Riocht’s success, exemplified by Liam Rodgers timely interception midway through the half when Burren attacked with a man over.


It all went wrong after the break for the home team, they lost their concentration and with it their discipline. Burren got off to a flying restart and the first of their three goals helped bring them level by the thirty fifth minute.


O’Rourke replied for An Riocht but a second Burren goal in the forty fifth minute put the home side on the back foot.
O’Rourke who was a lone threat in the second half pointed from play and from placed ball to leave it 0-10 to 2-5 with ten minutes remaining.


It was still there to be won but Burren were now the better team and crashed in a third goal before quickly adding two frees to open a winning gap.


Ryan Spiers brought proceedings to a close with a point his overall play deserved to leave it 0-11 to 3-7 at the finish.
Team: S Doran, M Higgins, D Clarke, L Rodgers, A Sloan, K Colgan, S McDowell, JP Farrell, J O’Rourke, R White, R Spiers 0-2, J Sands 0-1, D Campbell 0-2, J Walker, M O’Rourke 0-6. Subs C Cunningham, D Morgan.

Minor Football Championship An Riocht lost to Shamrocks

In the Minor Football Championship An Riocht lost to Shamrocks at Pairc Esler by 0-5 to 2-18.

 

For the first quarter hour we more than held our own and trailed by a point 0-1 to 0-2 but once Conor Clarke went off injured we struggled to get out of our own half and were worn down by constant Shamrocks pressure.

 

Thomas Sloan was excellent in goals and his ability to pick men out with quick kick outs was a huge help. Shamrocks struck for goals either side of the break and the second half became a procession of Newry scores despite the best efforts of our players.

 

Team: Thomas Sloan, Michael Harper, Shane Cunningham, Aaron Eastwood, Conor Clarke 0-1, Liam Rodgers, Darragh Campbell, Dane Matthews, Deaglan Morgan 0-1, Paul Kearney, Ronan Cambell 0-2 (2f), Marc Rooney, Daniel Hardy, Jack Rafferty, Patrick McComiskey.

Section two featured Mayobridge, Rostrevor and Longstone.

 

In this group Rostrevor and Mayobridge emerged as winners and runnerup respectively. In the semi finals Mayobridge defeated clonduff and An Riocht defeated a fancied Rostrevor.

 

Unusually it was the two group runners up who met in the final and it took extra time to separate them. In the semi darkness it was Mayobridge who ran out winners by two points and who go on to take on East Down winners Castlewellan in the minor Feis finals.

U18 Footballers won in Bredagh 3-16 to 1-8

The U18 Footballers won in Bredagh 3-16 to 1-8 after a great team performance. The lads started fast and had Bredagh on the back foot. The movement of the forwards caused the Belfast boys problems and it was attack after attack with long range points and two well worked goals resulting. Bredagh found their chances limited with Deaglan Morgan and Andrew Harper covering back to help the An Riocht defence and Thomas Sloan alert between the Kingdom posts.

 

At half time An Riocht had it sown up 2-12 to 0-3. Bredagh enjoyed a better restart and hit an early goal and a couple of points but once An Riocht settled, the midfield, backed by a renewed half back line reinforced by the switch of Ronan White,retook control and An Riocht ran out convincing winners. When all the injuries clear up if they continue to work hard this An Riocht side will have more good days than bad ones.

 

Team: T Sloan, M Harper, S Cunningham, D Hardy, L Rodgers, A Eastwood, A Harper 0-2, D Morgan 1-2, C Clarke 1-5, D Campbell 1-2, R White, D Matthews, R Campbell 0-5. Sub: P McComiskey.

Down All County Minor Football Division 2 - Round 2: Castlewellan 2-9 V An Ríocht 1-8

U18 Football, Liatroim attended Dunavil in a league decider

In U18 Football, Liatroim attended Dunavil in a league decider and left with a comfortable 4-10 to 2-7 victory. This was a strangely subdued affair given the prize on offer to both teams. An Riocht were wasteful in the early stages with some wayward passing and Liatroim led from frees.

 

An Riocht suffered a setback in the fifth minute when keeper Stephen Doran was black carded but Thomas Sloan replaced him and saved the resultant penalty diving low to his right to turn the spot kick away for a fifty.

 

An Riocht were continually caught out by Liatroim’s quick kick outs and the visitors were happiest building from the back as Kory Colgan was dominating in the air around midfield.

After some good defensive play from Andrew and Michael Harper, An Riocht eventually got on the front foot and Conor Clarke fired in a lead goal off the post. Having built a narrow advantage, An Riocht gave it away conceding two goals in as many minutes just before the break to trail 2-4 to 1-3 at half time.

 

An Riocht shunned chances to reply on the restart and conceded two flick on goals in the thirty sixth minute to leave themselves too much to do. A now confident Liatroim added several points before Ronan White blasted home a second An Riocht goal and points from Deaglan Morgan and Michael O’Rourke left eight between the teams with a quarter hour to play. A final quarter exchange of scores did nothing for the deficit and Liatroim ran out clear winners by the finish.

 

Scorers: R White 1-1, C Clarke 1-0, D Morgan 0-2 (1f), M O’Rourke 0-2 (1f), A Sloan 0-1, M Rooney 0-1

U18 Football v Shamrocks

The Minor footballers exited the ‘A’ FC to favourites Shamrocks on Tuesday past.

 

At half time the scores were level, An Riocht 1-6 Shamrocks 0-9, but the Newry side pulled away in the second half to win 4-19 to 1-11. Apart from a few moments of individual brilliance from Conor Clarke, the forwards offered little with too many chances past up; the midfield did not chase back after the break as the Newry midfielders rampaged into the An Riocht half to devastating effect; defensively An Riocht played ok as a unit and in goals Stephen Doran made a couple of good saves but they were overrun in the later stages.

 

Scorers: M O’Rourke 1-4 (3f), D Morgan 0-2, C Clarke 0-2 (1f)S Doran 0-1 (45), D Campbell 0-1, J Rafferty 0-1.

A home fixture v Liatroim should decide the destiny of the league title but with the Fontenoys still in the Championship that may be some way off.

U18 Football v Downpatrick

The U18 Footballers beat Downpatrick in the Championship by 5-11 to 3-4 though the performance was by no means as convincing as the thirteen point winning margin would suggest. An Riocht got off to a great start when a long Deaglan Morgan pass was taken by Conor Clarke and despite falling over he directed his shot wide off the keeper to the bottom corner of the net.

 

Darragh Campbell who seems to be coming into form added a point but the momentum was broken when Campbell sent Michael O’Rourke away and from an angle he drove his shot into the side netting.  Hoops settled after this let off and they were allowed break from defence by lazy forward play and headed a goal before almost getting in again but for a timely Stephen McDowell tackle. However the visitors’ practice of carrying the ball forward was causing An Riocht problems and this time their midfielder advanced unchallenged for a levelling point.

 

An Riocht produced one sweeping move involving Aidan Sloan and Jack Rafferty before Conor Clarke pointed spectacularly but two points in response put Downpatrick ahead for the first time.  It could have been worse for the home side for Liam Rodgers took a goal bound shot off the line and Stephen Doran spread himself to deny them on another occasion before Darragh Campbell soloed into range to shoot the equaliser.

 

Three quick points on the restart were cancelled by a Downpatrick goal but despite missing some gilt edged chances An Riocht took control and created enough opportunities to edge clear.  Darragh Campbell shot 1-2 in a five minute spell as An Riocht led by five going into the last ten minutes, 2-9 to 2-4.  Then Kory Colgan began to catch and stride forward from midfield opening up the Downpatrick defence and Michael O’Rourke found his range with three quick fire goals to break the resistance of the visitors who goaled a penalty in added time.

 

Team: 

S Doran, A Eastwood, L Rodgers, A Harper, A Sloan, S McDowell, R White, B Rafferty, K Colgan, N McComiskey, D Morgan, D Campbell 1-6 (1f), M O’Rourke 3-2, J Walker, C Clarke 1-2.

Subs:

J Rafferty, D Matthews 0-1.

The home side then goaled to keep in touch, before a strong finish to the half left An Riocht leading 2-10 to 1-4 at the break. Baileghlas goaled a second time on the restart but An Riocht took control replying with 1-9, the goal coming from John Paul Farrell, to go seventeen points clear before the home side scored again.

U18 Football An Riocht v Saval

An Riocht had two points to spare over Saval, 2-12 to 3-7, on Tuesday past. We dominated possession but were left hanging on as Saval goaled with the last score to leave it an anxious finish. Misfiring forwards prevented An Riocht building a substantial first half lead and allowed the visitors stay in the game far longer than they should have. Conor Clarke soloed in to fist the first two points before collecting a long Ben Rafferty pass and rounding the keeper to goal. Deaglan Morgan and Stephen McDowell added points as An Riocht went seven nil ahead by the twentieth minute.


Then against the run of play Saval goaled and quickly tagged on two points. Young Clarke responded with another pair of points but with the last kick of the half Saval struck for a second goal to leave just the minimum between the teams.
An Riocht should have put the result to bed on the restart when John Paul Farrell powered in for a goal and from the kick out Deaglan Morgan added his second point.


When Stephen Doran saved well to deny Saval an immediate reply, An Riocht should have pushed on but the next ten points were shared equally between the two teams and that late, late goal left the result in doubt until the final whistle.
Scorers Conor Clarke 1-6, John Paul Farrell 1-1, Deaglan Morgan 0-2, Darragh Campbell 0-2, Stephen McDowell 0-1.

Minor: An Riocht 1-15 Rostrevor 2-10

An Riocht U18 Footballers visited Rostrevor on Tuesday and came away with a great win by 1-15 to 2-10 with County minors Declan Doyle and Ronan McAlinden particularly impressive.

Team S Doran; M Higgins, J O’Rourke, D Clarke; R Spiers, K Sloan, B Rodgers; R McAlinden, D Doyle; JP Farrell, J Reilly, J Sands; D Campbell, K Colgan, N McComiskey.

U18 Football Liatroim v An Riocht

The U18 Footballers lost in Liatroim by 1-11 to 3-13. After a good start in which we led three nil, our failure to take other chances allowed the home side settle and they replied with an uninterrupted 1-7 in a fifteen minute period of dominance. We had our chances but a combination of loose handling and poor shot selection prevented us building a substantial lead. Their twenty seventh minute goal stung a response from our team and at the break the deficit was five points, 0-6 to 1-8.

 

Nathan McComiskey came on for his first match after a yearlong injury layoff and pointed with his first touch and almost got in for a goal in the next attack but again Liatroim got on top and enjoyed a decent period of pressure which yielded a string of points before defensive errors allowed them in for two late goals despite some great saves by Stephen Doran.


Team: S Doran 0-1, A Eastwood, K Colgan, A Harper, L Rodgers, S McDowell, A Sloan 0-1, JP Farrell 0-1, J Walker, R White 0-2, D Morgan, D Matthews 0-1, C Clarke 0-1, M O’Rourke 1-3, D Campbell. Subs: C Morgan, N McComiskey 0-1, M Harper.

A few lapses in concentration allowed Bryansford in for Five first half goals which left the score at the break, Bryansford 5-4 An Riocht 2-4. An Riocht improved greatly after the break and their defence was very disciplined, and while they kept the ‘Ford scoreless, they couldn’t do enough up front to claw it back enough to dig out a result. Final Score: Brynansford 5-4 An Riocht 2-11

U18 Football Saul v An Riocht

The Minor Footballers won in Saul by 2-12 to 1-11. A goal down inside three minutes An Riocht hit back to score five points and take a narrow lead before a scoreless second quarter allowed the home side edge back in front by 1-7 to 0-5 at half time. At the three quarter mark despite a Ronan White goal we trailed by the minimum 1-8 to 1-9 and during the final quarter the teams were level three times. An Riocht kept in it thanks to a fantastic Stephen Doran save one on one with five minutes remaining and won it with a sixtieth minute Conor Clarke goal.

Stephen Doran, Ronan White, Deaglan Morgan, Stephen McDowell and Liam Rodgers were all outstanding for An Riocht. Michael O’Rourke was a classic target man up front and Darragh Campbell had a great night from frees. Ben Rafferty and Jack Walker worked well together to good effect at centre field while Aaron Eastwood and Andrew Harper proved tight man markers in defence.

The next game is on Saturday 24th May in Ballyholland.

Ahead four nil An Riocht were handed a reality check by the adventurous visitors who went in two points to the good, 0-7 to 0-5, at the break. Bredagh packed the midfield and attacked from every angle causing An Riocht plenty of problems, drawing fouls and forcing a good save from Steven Doran. An Riocht were too slow delivering the ball forward and struggled for scores after their initial flurry. A good start to the second half restored An Riocht’s lead and they were able to keep a couple of scores to the good though were not entirely convincing.

U18 Football: Saval v An Riocht

An Riocht just edged an entertaining opening minor football league fixture at Saval by 5-6 to 3-8. Stephen McDowell helped himself to a well taken goal getting in on the end of a Darragh Campbell effort which fell short and keeper Stephen Doran stroked over a fifty after a brilliant four man move was denied by the home keeper. Saval settled and were level by the end of the first quarter thanks to their first goal and a second soon after helped them to a five point lead before Aidan Sloan fisted an An Riocht goal and with the last kick of the half Stephen McDowell tied it at 2-4 apiece.

 

An Riocht dominated on the restart but four one on one with the keeper yielded no score before battling midfielder Ben Rafferty lofted over a point. Though Conor Clarke placed a shot wide of the keeper for a third An Riocht goal, other chances went abegging and Saval pulled two points back at the other end. However with six minutes remaining substitute Dane Matthews put Darragh Campbell in for a fourth goal and An Riocht looked safe. Saval had other ideas and 1-2 in two minutes set up a nervy finale but as the home side pressed for an equaliser Conor Clarke broke forward and soloed through to plant his second goal with the last kick of the match for a creditable away victory.

 

Team: Stephen Doran 0-1, Aaron Eastwood, Liam Rodgers, Andrew Harper, John Paul Farrell, Kory Colgan, Aidan Sloan 1-0, Ben Rafferty 0-1, Jack Walker, Ronan White, Deaglan Morgan, Stephen McDowell 1-2, Darragh Campbell 1-1, Michael O’Rourke, Conor Clarke 2-1.

An Riocht settled well and the high-scoring resumed and An Riocht survived a late Saval onslaught tohold on for the win.
