Burgess 1-11 Kildangan 0-18. North Junior A hurling

Garrett Howard takes aim

Team: Brian Sherlock, Kevin McDonnell, Robbie Cremin, Pat Woods, Tommy Walsh, Paidi McDonnell, Willie Ryan, Kieran Ryan, Sean Flynn, Bill Flaherty (0-2), Fergal McDonnell, Tadgh O’Halloran, Andy Dunne(0-3F), Colm O’Brien(1-1), Garrett Howard(0-5, 3F).

The first half was tit for tat with our points coming from Bill O’Flaherty, Garrett Howard, Colm O’Brien and Andy Dunne until Colm O’Brien got on the end of a Tadgh O’Halloran delivery and fired an unstoppable shot passed the Kildangan Keeper to stretch our lead to four points.

Our scoring dried up thereafter but for an Andy Dunnes 22nd minute free and we went in on level terms, 1-6 to 0-9, at half time.

Though we enjoyed periods of dominance in the second half we couldn’t seem to translate it into scores. Kildangan had no such problems unfortunately and always seemed to find the right man in space and take their scores. Our scorers for the second half were Andy Dunne (0-1 from a ’21 mtr free) and Garrett Howard (0-4, 2f). It always looked as if we’d need another goal to win this game and indeed Garrett Howard came closest to getting one when his 49th minute shot screamed over the bar for a point.

The final score line of 1-11 to 0-18 didn’t do justice to our efforts on the night but we can have no complaints. Kildangan took their chances and such fully deserved the win.
