Burgess suffer defeat in League opener

Senior Hurling League 2014


Burgess 2-11 Nenagh Eire Og 4-13

Team: Niall McGrath, Paddy Hogan, Johny Mullqueen, Jack O’Flaherty, Donagh Maher(0-1), Brian Tucker, Mike O’Flaherty, Noel Gleeson, Bill O’Flaherty. Eoin (Tossy) Hogan, Brian Hogan, Eoin (Leahy) Hogan (2-5,3f,1 ’65), Damien O’Brien (cpt)(0-1), John O’Brien(0-1). Subs used: Tadgh O’Halloran(0-1), Willie Ryan, Kieran Ryan(0-1) Declan O’Donoghue, Johny Ryan.

We got off to a horror start in this league encounter when Nenagh caught us cold for a well taken opening goal inside the first 30 seconds of the game. We struggled throughout the first half to work the ball into scoring positions. Nenagh had no such worries playing with the aid of a stiff breeze and had their second goal from a soft-ish 21 metre free after 15 minutes of play to make the score 2-5 to 0-3. We went in at half time trailing by 2-10 to 4 points. Our scores for the half came from Damien O’Brien (play) and Eoin Leahy Hogan 2f, 1’65.

John O’Brien fired the open shot of our 2-3 without reply salvo in the first 8 minutes of the second half. Eoin Leahy Hogan was on fire bagging to goals within a minute of each other along with points, one from a placed ball the other from play. Disaster struck in the 14th minute of the second half when we let Nenagh in for two quick fire goals.

All told we put in a much better second half and took some fantastic scores but on balance Nenagh well deserved their victory.
