Burgess GAA notes 9th June 2013

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.
