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.
