Burgess seniors defeat Lorrha

Burgess 0-24 – Lorrha 1-17

North Tipp Senior Hurling Championship 18th May 2014

In a free ridden first half Burgess were happy to be only a point behind at half time. The Bulk of our scores coming from placed balls by the lethally accurate Stephan Murray. Eoin Tossy Hogan opened our account after three minutes with a well taken point from play. Lorrha responded with a fine point from play themselves two minutes later before Stephen Murray notched the first of the eight pointed frees he would score in the half.

Lorrha were dogged and by the 22nd half they led by nine points to five, Burgess then hit a purple patch with three frees by Murray and point from play by Noel Gleeson. Another pointed free by Murray had the half time score Lorrha 11 points, Burgess 10.

The second half began brightly for Burgess with three unanswered points within the first four minutes from Eoin Hogan, Peter Gill and Stephan Murray which pushed Burgess into a two point lead. Lorrha responded with a point of their own from play before Murray added another free restoring Burgess’s two point advantage. Lorrha then rocked Burgess with a fine goal to make the score Burgess 0-14 to Lorrha’s 1-12.

Points from Murray and Daniel Ryan followed by a Lorrha point had the game all square with fifteen minutes remaining. Burgess then owned the next 10 minutes outscoring Lorrha seven points to one with Stephan Murray, Brian Hogan, Peter Gill and Donagh Maher doing the damage.

Johnny Mulqueens harsh sending off for a second yellow made for a nervy final five minutes but fittingly it was Stephan Murray who got the final score from play to give Burgess a well-deserved 0-24 to 1.17 win.

Team: Niall McGrath, John O’Dwyer, Johnny Mulqueen, Jack Flaherty, Shane Maher. Donagh Maher, Conor Quigley, Daniel Ryan, Peter Gill, Damien O’Brien, Brian Hogan, Noel Gleeson, Eoin Hogan. Eoin Tossy Hogan, Stephan Murray
