Burgess GAA Notes 6th May 2013

U12 North Football Final


Burgess 2-05 Portroe 1-03 Saturday 4th May

Burgess won the toss and elected to play against the strong breeze in the first half. Both teams were evenly matched in the first ten minutes with Portroe registering the first point. A well taken goal by Micheal Ryan after 12 minutes put Burgess in the lead. Portroe applied a lot of pressure for the remainder of the half and scored another point leaving the score Burgess 1-00 Portroe 0-02 at half time.

In the second half Portroe got the first score to level the game. Burgess with a few switches started to take control of the game Jack O Keefe scored a well taken point from play and another from a free to leave Burgess two points ahead ten minutes in the second half. Caoilfhionn Maher scored a great goal followed by a point each by Cathal Conneally and Jack O’Keefe. On the break Portroe scored a goal. Burgess then finished strongly with a well taken point by Sean Dunne.

Congratulations to the players and management who have done the parish proud. It took great heart, determination and belief to win today and these lads have it in abundance. It was great to see such great support from the parish on the day.

We also remind parents that a DVD is available of the game. Please contact the management for further details.

Junior A League

Our junior A hurlers had a hard fought 3-09 to 1-09 away win over Lorrha on Saturday last. Though we hurled with wind advantage in the first half we went in with only a one point lead at half time, 1-05 to 1-04.

Our job became tougher just after the restart when we were reduced to 14 men but to our lads credit they rose their game and ran out deserving winners in the end on a score line of 3-09 to 1-09.

Our performance in the second half was notable for some quality point taking against the wind in darkening and greasy conditions.

Well done to the players and management.

Brian Sherlock, Declan O’Donohue, Sean Flynn, Willie Ryan, Tony Hogan, Timmy Hogan, Brian Tucker, Jack Flaherty, Johnny Ryan, Kieran Ryan, Paddy Hogan, Bill Flaherty, Fergal McDonnell, John O’Brien and Garret  Howard.
