Burgess GAA Notes 12th May 2013

County Semi Final U12 Burgess v Aherlow Sunday 12th May 2013 in Holycross




Burgess went into the game as the last North team standing in the County semi finals.  Burgess won the toss and elected to play against the strong breeze in the first half.

Aherlow got the first score of the game with a well taken point after five minutes.  Burgess were defending well and on a break Cathal Conneally delivered a long ball into the Aherlow square.  The Aherlow full back and gaol keeper misjudged the ball and it ended up in the back of the net. Aherlow full forward was one on one with the Burgess goal keeper Kiefer O’Brien who made an unbelievable save. Aherlow applied a lot of pressure and scored three more points during the first half to leave the score Aherlow 4pts Burgess 1-00 at half time.

Burgess got a dream start in the second half when Tom Gibson scored a goal after one minute. This was followed soon after by a well taken point by Cathal Conneally.  Burgess dominated the next ten minutes of the second half with Cathal Conneally on fire scoring an excellent goal form a 45. Burgess continued to dominate for the remainder of the second half with Sean Dunne  and Cathal Conneally adding a point each.  In the final moments of the game Sean Dunne scored an excellent point to leave the final score Burgess 3 -05. Aherlow 0 – 04

Great credit is due to all these U12 players, they have never been found wanting and have always done what the coaches have asked of them.  It was great to see such support from the Parish and continued support is needed for County final next Saturday, time and venue to follow.

Our junior A’s recorded a fine win over Moneygall on Saturday last. Though we hurled with aid of a strong breeze it was Moneygall who  began the brighter racing into a 0-3 to 0-1 lead after 5 minutes.

We reeled in and overhauled Moneygall  lead and by the half time whistle we were 0-10 to 0-04 ahead.

The second half saw us out score Moneygall 1-7 to 0-3 and run out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 1-17 to 0-7.

Well done to the players and management.
