Burgess GAA Notes 31st August 2015

Junior A Hurling:

Lee Howard and Johnny Ryan in Action against Knockshe

Our interest in the North Junior A championship ended on Saturday last in a thrilling extra time defeat to Knockshegowna in Cloughjordan. A goal in the eightieth minute secured a North final berth for Knockshe in a thrilling game where the very least Burgess deserved was a draw.

We would like to thank the hurlers and their management team for their efforts this year and a special mention to Garrett and Lee Howard who despite a family wedding at the weekend were outstanding for Burgess on Saturday.

We wish Knockshegowna the very best of luck, whoever their opposition, in the North final. I’m sure Saturday’s game will stand to them.

U8 Hurling:

The boys travelled to Dr Morris park in Thurles on Friday evening for a very enjoyable blitz where they had the opportunity to play opposition from all over the county. The boys had a great time and we would like to thank Mick O’Dwyer and all the adults who looked after our young hurlers.

the Goal

U14 Hurling:

u14B North Champions 2015

Congratulations to Burgess U14 hurling team on bridging a twenty year gap when they successfully overcame Newport Gaels in the U14b north final last Saturday in Toomevara on a score-line of Burgess 4-12 Newport Gaels 1-06. Burgess went into this game as underdogs fielding a very young side which included five U12s on the starting line out. Burgess started well scoring 1-02 without reply. At half time the score was Burgess 2-08 Newport  Gaels 5 points. Newport Gaels were out of the blocks early in the second half scoring 1 01 without reply to leave 5 points between the teams. After a few tactical switches by Burgess Management, we started to take control of the second half. Burgess finished strong with the final score Burgess 4-12 Newport Gaels 1 -06. This result was due to the great team work, high work rate and skilful hurling by all the Burgess players. A big thank you to their management Tony, Mike, Eoin, Tommy, Liam, Eoin and Pat. Also a big thanks to Muiris O’Keeffe and Willie Ryan for their medical assistance on the day.  Thanks for the great support it was much appreciated. Hard luck to Newport Gaels.  We now have the county semi-final to look forward to against the south champions in two weeks’ time.
