Burgess GAA notes 8 September 2013

Minor B hurling Semi-final

Burgess 3-20 Silvermines 1-11

Final Score

The Burgess minor hurlers put in a masterful first half performance against the Silvermines in the North B semi-final in Nenagh on Tuesday 3rd September. Such was our dominance that it took 15 minutes for the Silvermines to register their first score.

Burgess dominated every line of the field and were worth every bit of their 3-12 to 1-2 lead at half time. Among the highlights of this dazzling first half performance were Keith Nealon’s two pointed line balls, one from either side of the field!

With the game effectively over at half time, Silvermines to their credit, never dropped their heads and fought gamely on throughout the second half but it was to no avail. The Burgess scores kept coming and the resolute defending of the Burgess backs wouldn’t allow the mines in for the goals they so desperately needed.

This victory is especially pleasing considering we had been well beaten in Dolla by this highly regarded Mines outfit earlier in the championship. Great credit is due to players and management for the huge improvements that have been made and we can now look forward to a North final battle against Ballina on Sunday 15th September, please check fixtures section for further details. I’m sure our boys can be sure of getting the massive support from the whole parish that they so richly deserve.

The Team: Paul Carroll, Shane Griffin, Tony Gleeson, Dan Nevin, Lee Howard, Pat Woods, Adam Coady, Paidi Gill, Conor Gill, Tommy Coghlan, Owen Daily, Andy Dunne, Keith Nealon, Bill Flaherty, Shane McCarthy. Subs used: Francis Munsterberg, Hughie O’Brien, Jack Gill, Jack Boland and Costelloe
