Disappointment in Dolla,

2013 Burgess u21 hurling team

Burgess 0-7 Kilruane 0-20 27th November 2013

Kilruane retained their North Tipperary u21A hurling crown in Dolla on Sunday  last. Our lads gave their all but Kilruane proved to be too strong on the day. Kilruane were first out of the blocks with early points from Niall O’Meara. His first coming from play and his second from a placed ball. The same Niall O’Meara who would do most of Kilruanes scoring on the day contributing ten points over all, seven frees, one ’65 and a point from play in each half. Burgess trailed 0-10 to 0-2 at half time our scores both coming from frees by Eoin Hogan.

The second half started brightly with Danny Ryan pointing straight from the throw in after a fanatastic solo run by John O’Dwyer who was now operating at mid field. A minute later Eoin Hogan had another great score from play and things were looking up for Burgess. This proved to be a false dawn however as the ever accurate Niall O’Meara steadied the Kilruane ship with yet another pointed free on 33 minutes.

The scores just wouldn’t come for Burgess on a very disappointing day in Dolla when it seemed everything sailed over the bar for Kilruane. We had some goal chances which Kilruane somehow managed to keep out but all in all Kilruane thoroughly deserved their victory and we wish them the very best of luck in the county championship.
