Burgess draw with Nenagh Eire Og in Dr. Fogarty cup final

County Senior Hurling Challenge Cup Fr Fogarty Cup Final Nenagh Éire Óg 1-18 Burgess 1-18 AET

Burgess v Nenagh league final 2013#3

We set a blistering pace early on in this senior hurling league final leading 1-10 to 0-4 at half time. Our points coming from the two Eoins Hogans, three a piece, Kevin Nealon, Noel Gleeson, Jonathan Ryan and Conor Quigley. Our goal came from a deft flick by Brian Hogan after the ball was broken down into his path by Kevin Nealon.  Though we lead it was with the aid of a stiff breeze and we would be shooting into a low sun in the second half.

Eire Og came out with all guns blazing in the second half and had our lead pegged back to just three points 1-13 to 1-10 with 15 minutes left of normal time. Their comeback was completed at the stroke of normal time when they equalised to send the game to extra time 1-14 each.

Extra time was tit for tat with both side exhausted and it was left to Tossy Hogan to tie the game up with a superbly taken pressure shot  at the death to leave the scores 1-18 all.

Well done to our lads for turning out two fine results within a week.
