County Final U12 Football Burgess v Ballyporeen Sunday 19th May 2013 in Drombane

Our u12’s were pipped at the post after a heroic comeback in the second half of their county football final thriller against Ballyporeen on Sunday last. Great credit is due to our young footballers for the way they fought back to get within a point of a strong Ballyporeen outfit.

We were 1-1 to no score down at half time but came out battling in the second. We were within a point with 3 minutes remaining but alas it was Bally who were to get the final score to seal the match at 1-3 to 1-5.

We thank the players and mentors for their efforts and commitment this year. They have brought great honour to the parish.

Junior A League

Our junior A’s defeated Kilruane comfortably in the North Junior A hurling league on Saturday last. We had the better of the first half, leading 10 points to 3 at half-time.

Any chance of a Kilruane comeback in the second half was soon dashed when Kevin Nealon goaled a mere 15 seconds after the restart.  A fine display of point taking in greasy conditions thereafter saw our boys run out convincing winners on a scoreline of 1-17 to 0-7. A score which coincidentally is the exact same winning margin as the previous week’s victory over Moneygall.

Well done to the players and management.
