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.

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)
