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
