North Minor B Hurling

clon game

Well done to our minor hurlers who triumphed over Borrisokane tonight in a full blooded encounter in Kilcolman with a winning score line of 2-16 to 1-13.

We began in whirlwind fashion with a fine point from play by Andy Dunne after less than two minutes. We continued that run of dominance and lead at the fifteen minute mark by 1-5 to 0-1. The scores were from Andy Dunne 1-4 and Pat Woods 0-1.

Borrisokane to their credit launched a remarkable comeback scoring 1-5 for the remainder of the half. Burgess worryingly, only managing one more score for the half, an Andy Dunne free, leaving the match tied 1-6 each at half time.

The second half started brightly for the home side with Andy Dunne once again pointing from a free inside a minute. It was tit for tat thereafter with another fine point from play by Paidi Gill when suddenly Keith Nealon had the Borrisokane net billowing and the matched ramped up in intensity.

Borrisokane once more hit a purple patch and had the game tied at the 42 minute mark with a score line of 2-8 to 1-11.

Andy Dunne with two points and Paidi Gill with another saw Burgess`s lead restored to three points with a quarter of an hour left to play.

Burgess managed to maintain and build on their lead for the remainder of what became a fairly fractious half of hurling.

The final score was 2-16 to 1-13.

Well done to players and management for producing a fine evening’s entertainment of high tempo hurling.

Burgess scorers: Andy Dunne 1-10(0-7f), Pat Woods 0-2, Paidi Gill 0-2, Keith Nealon 1-0, Bill O’Flaherty 0-1, Conor Gill 0-1.

U14 hurling

burgess_v_lorrha_2012_goal_mouth_action

Our junior A’s dug deep to get a hard fought win against Lorrha on Saturday evening last. Our cause wasn’t helped by some confusion over the time and day of the fixture which saw us scraping together the bare 15 before starting 20 minutes late. Lorrha played with the wind in the first half and went in at the break a point up – 1-7 to 1-6.

We did well in the end to pull through hitting 1-1 in the last 3 minutes to secure the victory after Lorrha had scored an equalising goal a minute beforehand. Well done to the lads who secured the win on a final scoreline of 3-12 to 2-11. Special mention to the0 walking wounded who answered the call and donned the jersey when numbers were low.

Our team and scorers were: 1. Brian Sherlock, 2. Kevin McDonnell, 3. Sean Flynn (Captain), 4. Willie Ryan, 5. Thomas Walsh (0-1), 6. Padraig McDonnell, 7. Brian Tucker, 8. Kieran Ryan (0-2), 9. Tony Hogan (0-1), 10. Andy Dunne (2-2; 0-1 from a free), 11. Fergal McDonnell (0-2), 12. Tadhg O’Halloran (0-1), 13. Garrett Howard (1-0), 14. Colm O’Brien (0-1), 15. Eoin Fogarty.

Subs used:Bill O’Flaherty (0-2), Robbie Cremin

Burgess v Borrisokane minor B north championship 2013

Well done to our minor hurlers who triumphed over Borrisokane tonight in a full blooded encounter in Kilcolman with a winning score line of 2-16 to 1-13.

We began in whirlwind fashion with a fine point from play by Andy Dunne after less than two minutes of the half elapsed. We continued that run of dominance and lead at the fifteen minute mark by 1-5 to 0-1.  The scores coming from Andy Dunne 1-4 and Pat Woods 0-1.

Borrisokane then, to their credit launched a remarkable comeback scoring 1-5 for the remainder of the half. Burgess worryingly, only managing one more score for the half, an Andy Dunne free, leaving the match tied 1-6 each at half time.

The second half started brightly for the home side with Andy Dunne once again pointing from a free inside a minute. It was tit for tat thereafter with another fine point from play by Paidi Gill when suddenly Keith Nealon had the Borrisokane net billowing and the matched ramped up in intensity.

Borrisokane once more hit purple patch and had the game tied at the 42 minute mark with a score line of 2-8 to 1-11.

Andy Dunne with two points and Paidi Gill with another saw Burgess`s lead restored to three points with a quarter of an hour left to play.

Burgess managed to maintain and build on their lead for the remainder of what was becoming a fairly fractious half of hurling.

Indeed things came to a head after Bill Flaherty was hit late after scoring an excellent point from the middle of the field. The resulting melee seemed to drive Burgess on to greater efforts and they ran out deserving winners with a final score of 2-16 to 1-13.

Well done to players and management for producing a fine evening’s entertainment of high tempo hurling.

Burgess scorers: Andy Dunne 1-10(0-7f), Pat Woods 0-2, Paidi Gill 0-2, Keith Nealon 1-0, Bill O’Flaherty 0-1, Conor Gill 0-1.

Junior A Hurling league Semi-final

We bowed out to Eire Og Nenagh in the semi-final of the Junior A North hurling league, Burgess 1-15 Nenagh 1-19

It was a good game of hurling in sweltering heat in Cloughjordan.  We made the better start leading 1-6 to 0-2 after 7 minutes and seemed to be hurling well.  Fair dues to Nenagh they came back at us and the scores were tied 1-9 each at half time. Both goals were fairly fortunate efforts, ours from a long range free and Eire Og’s coming from a point bound ball that bounced back off the upright.

The second half was tit for tat for the most part with the sides level with 3 minutes remaining. Nenagh got 4 quick scores to seal the victory. We were left rueing a couple of missed goal chances that could have changed the outcome.

Best of luck to Nenagh in the final they are a well drilled outfit who’ll be difficult to beat.

The team that lined out was as follows: Brian Sherlock, Paidi McDonnell, Sean Flynn, Willie Ryan, Tony Hogan, Paddy Hogan, Brian Tucker, Jack Flaherty,  Johnny Ryan, Tadgh O’ Halloran, Cian McDonnell, Kieran Ryan, Fergal McDonnell, Kevin Nealon, Andy Dunne. Subs: JP Grace, Colm O’Brien, Dan Nevin.

Senior Hurling Challenge Cup Semi Final

clon game

DR. FOGARTY CUP SEMI FINAL Burgess 2-17 Clonoulty Rossmore 1-11

Our senior hurlers had good win over Clonoulty-Rossmore in the semi-final of the Dr. Fogarty Cup on Thursday evening last.

We were fastest out of the blocks on the night racing into a 0-7 to 0-0 lead after 9minutes of play with points from Damien O’Brien, Eoin Hogan, Daniel Ryan, Noel Gleeson and Cian McDonnell. In fact took Clonoulty 10 minutes to register their opening score of the game, a pointed free by Fiachra O’Keeffe.

More good work by our forwards and a fine goal from Eoin Hogan left us well in control and 1-9 to 0-2 up after 15minutes of play. Clonoulty then sparked into life an mounted something of a comeback leaving the score at half time Burgess 1-11, Clonoulty 1-7. The Clonoulty goal coming off the stick of full forward John Heffernan.  This left everything to play for in the second half, where despite our dominance we found ourselves only four points ahead.

The second half began brightly after Eoin Hogan goaled form a penalty after the Clonoulty goalkeeper was judged to have dragged down Andy Dunne as he bore down on Goal. This left us leading 2-11 to 1-7 after only 2 minutes of the second half.

A great defensive performance for the remainder of the game saw Clonoulty held to a miserly four points for the half while further points from Eoin Hogan, Damien O’Brien and Noel Gleeson saw us to a final score of 2-17 to 1-11.

Burgess: Brian Sherlock, Patrick Hogan, Shane Maher, William Ryan, John O’Dwyer, Tim Hogan, Jack Flaherty, Noel Gleeson (0-2), Johnny Ryan, Cian McDonnell (0-1), Damien O’Brien (0-4), Brian Hogan, Dan Ryan (0-1), Eoin Hogan (2-9), Andrew Dunne. Subs used; Michael Flaherty, Stephen Murray, Brian Tucker.

Junior A North hurling league

The final group game of our junior A hurling league began ominously in Borrisoleigh on Saturday night last with Borris charging to a 1-2 to 0-1 lead after 5 minutes. We mounted a comeback thereafter and by the 15th minute were only a point adrift, 1-3 to 0-5. Our scores coming from Kieran Ryan, Brian Tucker and Garrett Howard. This was, unfortunately, as close as we would get to Borris for the remainder of the match. Fergal McDonnell added one more point to our tally just before half time leaving the score at the break 2-11 to 0-6.

The second half began as the first with Borrisoleigh to the fore. By the time we registered our first score of the half, a goal by Paddy Hogan, the score was Borris 3-14 Burgess 1-6. Credit is due to our lads who kept plugging away and never let their heads drop but in the end Borrisoleigh were just too strong and ran out easy winners with a final score of Burgess 2-11 Borrisoleigh 4-17.

Burgess Team: Brian Sherlock, Paudie McDonnell, Sean Flynn, Declan O’Donoghue, Willie Ryan, Brian Tucker (0-2), Tommy Walsh, Kieran Ryan (0-1), Johnny Ryan (0-1), Tadgh O’Halloran (0-1), Paddy Hogan (1-0), Andy Dunne (1-0), Garrett Howard (0-3), Liam O’Donoghue, Fergal McDonnell (0-1). Subs used Colm O’Brien (0-1) and Dan Nevin (0-1)
