Burgess GAA notes 28th April 2013

Senior Hurling

Our senior hurlers bowed out of the North championship with a 2:17 to 0:10 defeat to Toomevara. This very disappointing end to our North campaign puts our senior hurlers into the county championship and probably a long wait before we see them in action again.

We did well to stay within 3 points of Toome against a strong breeze in the first half. Though the half time score of Toome 0:08 to our 0:05 only told part of the story. Toome had 14 wides in the half and had brought some outstanding saves from Niall Mcgrath.

The second half saw us chipping away at the Toome lead without ever drawing ahead. At the 18th minute we drew level and that would be the end of our scoring for the day. With 25minutes of the second half elapsed Toome were 3 points up and we were still in the hunt but they hit us for two goals inside two minutes and the game and our North campaign were over.

The final score of 2:17 to 0:10 didn’t do our efforts on the day justice and leaves us with plenty to work on for the county championship.

The team that lined out was as follows

Niall McGrath, Jack Flaherty, Shane Maher, John O’Dwyer, Conor Quigley, Donagh Maher, Johny Mullqueen, Eoin Tossy Hogan, Noel Gleeson, Eoin Leahy Hogan, Damien O’Brien, Danny Ryan, Stephen Murray, Brian Hogan, Cian McDonnell. Subs used Timmy Hogan, Peter Gill & Kevin Nealon.

The club wishes Conor Quigley a speedy recovery from the injury he sustained during the game.

Junior C League

Our junior C hurlers had a fine win over Silvermines in Kilcolman on Sunday last. We lead from start to finish in what was a thoroughly enjoyable game of hurling.

We eventually finished convincing winners on a score line of 2:12 to 1:10. The team and subs that lined out were as follows.

Brian Sherlock, Mike Hogan, Kevin McDonnell, Robbie Mullqueen, Sean Flynn, Brian Tucker, Dan Nevin, Tony Hogan, Bill Flaherty, Kieran Ryan, Robbie Cremin, Shane McCarthy, Andy Dunne, Fergal McDonnell & Colm O’Brien. Subs used; James Coady, Liam O’Donohue, Paidi Gill, Franky Hogan & Padraig McDonnell.

Burgess 2-3 Ballinahinch 1-2

Burgess played Ballinahinch in their second match in Kilcoleman this evening. Burgess settled early and were 1-2 up after 10 minutes.   Ballinahinch replied with a well taken point. The Burgess boys responded well and got their second goal just before half time. Ballinahinch came out fighting in the second half and ten minutes in they had narrowed the gap to just a goal.

Senior match report

Another Burgess attack launched

Another Burgess attack launched

After last week’s stinging defeat to the Slivermines our senior hurlers responded in fine style with a great victory over Roscrea in Dolla on Saturday last.

Conditions were poor with a strong cross field wind making shooting extremely difficult for both sides but nevertheless Burgess got off to a bright start with Stephen Murray making the score 0:02 to 0:00 after 8 minutes.  Roscrea replied with two points of their own to make the game level at two points apiece after 15 minutes.

Burgess then took over outscoring Roscrea by 1:05 to 0:02 for the remainder of the half. The Burgess scores came from Murray (1:03) and a point each from Noel Gleeson and Damien O’Brien.  This left Burgess leading 1:07 to 0:04 at half time.

The second half began like the first with Burgess registering the opening score, a fine effort from play by Damien O’Brien after only minute on the clock. Burgess continued to dominate the half outscoring Roscrea 0:06 to 0:04 for the half in deteriorating weather conditions. The Burgess scorers for the half were Damien O’Brien with 0,2 Stephen Murray also with 0,2, Eoin Leahy Hogan and Daniel Ryan with a point each.

The final score

The final score

Burgess were full value for their 1:13 to 0:08 win on what was a difficult day for hurling (Burgess had 16 wides, Roscrea had 8) This result now sets up a grandstand make or break final group game against Toomevara. So we march on with our fate firmly in our own hands.

Match report

Burgess_v_Silvermines_2013_#1

Our North senior campaign got off to a disappointing start on Sunday with a heavy defeat to Silvermines in McDonagh park. We took the wind advantage in the first half though it was the Silvermines who scored first after only one minute of play from a free by Jason Forde.

Stephen Murray levelled things up with a free of his own a minute later. Forde then tagged on another from play which was quickly cancelled out by an Eoin Leahy Hogan effort, also from play. At two points a piece with seven minutes on the clock this would be as close as we would get to the mines.

There then followed a sequence of five unanswered points from the mines which left them 0:07 to 0:02 ahead with 20 minutes gone. The rot was reversed momentarily with another Murray pointed free however the mines struck back with points from play within a minute. We were now 0:09 to 0:03 adrift after 21 minutes.

We rallied before half time scoring four good points from play to the Silvermines one, two from John O’Dwyer and one a piece from Eoin Leahy Hogan and Donagh Maher.

The sides went in at half time with Burgess trailing by 0:07 to 0:10 and hill to climb in the second half.

2nd half

If we had a hill to climb at the end of the first it would soon turn into a mountain. With seven minutes elapsed in the second half the mines had scored 2:02 to Burgess’s 0:02. The goals that effectively finished the game as a contest came from frees within three minutes of each other off the stick of Jason Forde.

Burgess fought gamely on and at one stage got briefly within five points of the mines but there was another hammer blow in store after 15 minutes of the half when David Boland snuck in for the Mines third goal of the day.

The game finished up with the Silvermines deserving winners on a scoreline of 3:18 to 0:15.
