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.
