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.
