Burgess u21’s defeat Borrisoleigh

U21A Hurling

Full blooded

Burgess v Borrisoleigh 21st Sept 2013

Borrisoleigh started the brighter on a smashing evening for hurling in Nenagh and were two points up within two minutes. Eoin Hogan had a pointed free a minute later to get us off the mark and with fine shot from the wing he had the game level after four minutes of play. By the 17th minute we were 8 points to 3 down with a worrying proportion of the scores we conceded coming either directly from frees or from attacks set up by frees. At this point the game seemed to be getting away from us.

Then in the 21st minute after a fantasticl length of the field move Andy Dunne delivered the perfect ball for Eoin Hogan to double on to the back of the Borrisoleigh net. This brought us right back into the game with the score now 1-5 to 0-9. However disaster stuck in the 27th minute when a long range Borris shot deceived everyone coming out of the sun and found the Burgess net leaving the score 1-7 to 1-10. A fantastic Andy Dunne goal in the 31st minute saw us level with Borris half time with the score tied at 2-7 to 1-10.

The second half was tit for tat for the opening 12 minutes until Andy Dunne rattled the Borris net bagging his second goal of the game and putting some daylight between the sides at 3-10 to 1-11. We held onto our lead for the reminder of the game. The final highlight of the game came in the 21st minute of the 2nd half when Andy Dunne rounded off a productive afternoon by completing his hat-trick. The final score of 1-16 to 4-13 fairly reflected our dominance on the day and hopefully will drive us on to greater things.

The Team that lined out: Brian Sherlock, Willie Ryan, John O’Dwyer, Pat Woods, Tommy Walsh, Jack Flaherty, Tony Hogan, Mike Flaherty, Kieran Ryan, Tadgh O’Halloran, Peter Gill, Bill O’Flaherty, Danny Ryan, Eoin Hogan, Andy Dunne.
