Match report

Burgess had a good away win over Golden Kilfeacle with a final score of 2:18 to 2:13 on a bitterly cold afternoon in Golden.Burgess started brightly with a good point from play inside a minute by Stephen Murray. This good start only got better when a minute later Kevin Nealon goaled after a great solo run. Burgess were good value for their half time lead of 2:06 to 0:07 with their second goal coming from a blistering Stephen Murray 21mtr free. The only downside for the half was the concession of too many frees with five of Golden’s seven first half score coming from frees.

The second half saw Burgess in control for the most part and building on their lead. With 26 minutes gone in the second half Burgess were cruising and leading comfortably 2:18 to 0:13 when Golden struck for two late goals in the 27th and 28th minute (penalty).

When the fulltime whistle blew Burgess had held on for a 2:18 to 2:13 victory

Senior League

Our senior hurlers continue their County League campaign with a home fixture against Cashel in Kilcoleman at 4pm Monday 18th of March. Note the change of time and date. Please come out and support the team.

North Tipp Hogan Cup

On Sunday last our senior hurlers bowed out of the Hogan Cup in the quarter final against Moneygall 1:12 to 0:14. The team that started was Paddy Looby, Declan O’Donoghue, Willie Ryan, Peter Gill, Damien O’Brien, Noel Gleeson(0:1), Eoin (Leahy) Hogan, Timmy Hogan, Eoin (Tossy) Hogan, Stephen Murray(7,6f), Brian Hogan(0:3) and Cian McDonnell. Subs used Danny Ryan(0:3),

On a  bitterly cold and windy morning in Kilcolman Burgess faced Moneygall in the senior Hogan Cup quarter final. Though playing against the wind in the first half Burgess held the Lion’s share of possession this however was not translated onto the scoreboard.

The half time score of Burgess 0:06 Moneygall 1:07 didn’t tell the full story of the half, Though Burgess went in four points down at half time they did so with eight wide’s against Moneygall’s three. This would prove critical at the final whistle.

There were also two 21 metre free’s for Burgess the first, hardly seen by the defenders, rocketed off the crossbar for a point the second found a Moneygall stick to send it over the bar.

On the other side of the coin the Moneygall goal when it came was off a defensive error and against the run of play. This is not taking away from the quality of the finish which was exceptional.

The second half saw the weather deteriorate into an icy deluge but Burgess started brightly Five unanswered points saw Burgess into the lead at the fifteen minute mark. This was achieved with the help of marvellous double save from a penalty by paddy Looby between the sticks for Burgess.

Though the game was tied with 31 minutes gone Moneygall snatched victory with a sublime line ball point at the death, their second of the game, into the teeth of the East wind.

All told a game that Burgess could have and perhaps should have won.

Burgess GAA Notes 3rd March 2013

Senior League

Our senior hurlers began their County League campaign with a loss against Moycarkey Borris in Kilcolman on Sunday last with a score line of 2:20 to 0:19. Although the result was disappointing, an entertaining game of high scoring hurling was served up. The team that lined out was Niall McGrath, Paddy Hogan, Conor Quigley, John O’Dwyer, Johnny Mulqueen, Damien O’Brien, Brian Tucker, John O’Brien, Jack Flaherty, Stephen Murray, Shane Maher, Danny Ryan, Noel Gleeson, Eoin Hogan and Garry Howard.

We did well to recover from an early Moycarkey goal and went in 0:11 to 1:06 up at half time. However the second half saw Moycarkey give a great display of long distance point taking to edge them in front. With the wind against us we were always going to find it tough to stay with Moycarkey and the second goal was to be the real difference on the day.

Hard luck to our lads.
