Pearse Ógs II hosted O’Hanlons in their second game in the JFL B last Sunday. The continual slight drizzle throughout the first half made handling skills a little more difficult than in the previous game against Crossmaglen II. Having lost the toss and forced to play against the breeze, Pearse Ógs quickly found themselves 3 points behind through poor decision making and very slack marking. With Eoin Donaghy and Mickey McGirr establishing a firm foothold at midfield, a quick break forward and some neat inter-passing the Ógs were level when the ball was palmed in flight to the net. O’Hanlons responded quickly with a point and only for some wayward shooting they would have established a considerable lead. Eventually they did kick a few more points and were 6 points to 1-00 ahead after 20 minutes. A free pointed by Paul Duggan and a Marty McCague point reduced the deficit to a point with half time approaching. In the 4 and a half minutes of injury time O’Hanlons kicked two more points before Paul Duggan kept the Ógs within reach with another free to leave the score O’Hanlons 0-07 Pearse Ógs 1-02.
With the breeze behind them for the second half, the Ógs looked well placed to pick up two very badly needed points.
The second half began with O’Hanlons dominating the early play and within 5 minutes they had opened a 4 point lead as the Ógs continued to take the wrong options. The introduction of P Feeney for C Duggan added extra pace to the Ógs attack and before long he had reduced the deficit to 3 with a fine point from play. With Donaghy and McGirr firmly on top at midfield and McNally and Wong picking up plenty of breaking ball, the Ógs enjoyed lots of possession but where finding it difficult to breakdown a resolute O’Hanlons defence. Pearse Ógs introduced experienced campaigner B Mc Laughlin into the forwards and shortly after that Shea Campbell made his first appearance of the year. A super interception by Wong, sent the ball to Toner, to Duggan and he set up McNally for a fine point. Shortly after this a cross field pass to Campbell saw the margin down to one when Campbell split the posts with a fine curling shot. Pearse Ógs continued to apply pressure but some wayward shooting left their small band of supporters feeling frustrated. However the Ógs were soon 2 points in front when Stephen Brady crashed the ball to the back of the O’Hanlons net. They were now ahead by 2 points. Instead of pressing home their advantage, O’ Hanlons rallied with great spirit and kicked the next 3 points to retake the lead. A clever quick kick out by Hutton to the introduced McGinley, to Donaghy to Feeney sent the talented youngster on a mazy run and he duly kicked a fine point to level the game with time almost up. O’Hanlons stormed out of defence and a needless free given away seemed to have gifted the points to O’ Hanlons when Liggett pointed for them 2 minutes into injury time. In a nail-biting last 30seconds a cross-field ball was well taken by McKee and his intelligent pass to McCague presented the opening for an equaliser. When an O’Hanlons defender needlessly charged him to the ground, the reliable Paul Duggan kicked the equalising point. The referee, Raymond Watters, blew the final whistle and the points were shared. Probably a fair result at the end of the day.

On Saturday 23rd Pearse Óg U12.5s played a challenge game against Tullysaran in Pearse Óg Park. With the holiday season in full flow both clubs were under strength with numbers but thanks goes out to the Tullysaran players and management for taking this challenge game. 3 sessions of 20 minutes were played and some fantastic skills were shown by Tullysaran to put a lot of pressure on the Pearse Ógs defence in the first session. Ógs learned from their mistakes in the first third to put a strong challenge up against a very talented Tullysaran team. Some great link play allowed the Ógs to score some really good points in the second third. In the last third the theme continued as the game ebbed and flowed from end to end and congratulations have to be given to both sides who could not be faulted in their efforts. A great day of Gaelic football was played in a tremendously competitive and skilful spirit. The U12.5 management would like to thank a number of our U10 players who assisted our numbers – they certainly didn’t look out of place playing against players who were up to 2 years older than them. Well done to all involved. Once again many thanks to Tullysaran for fulfilling the fixture.
U12.5 training continues each Wednesday from 6.15 to 7.30. We still have 4 outstanding fixtures to fulfil plus a new round of fixtures are to be issued. There is also a tournament or 2 to be played so lots of football still left to play so maximum attendance at training is required. U12.5 management
