Burgess GAA Notes 25th April 2016

Senior Hurling:
Our senior hurlers drew their second group game of the county championship against Toomevara at the weekend with the final score treading Burgess 1-11 Toome 0-14. We looked to have the game firmly in our grasp when Bill O’Flaherty goaled in the 6th minute of the second half but alas our failure to convert chances into scores was our undoing and Toome snatched a late equaliser to draw the game. 

Our next and final game in the group will be against Holycross, mostly likely on the weekend of the 7th/8th of May. This will be a winner takes all encounter do all support would be greatly appreciated.

Our u12’s were beaten away to Toome on the North B football semi-final on Saturday last. Hard luck to the lads who launched a valiant comeback in the second half but unfortunately ran out of time. The final score read Burgess 2-3 Toome 3-5. Best of luck to the Toome boys in the North final.

Senior Hurling:  
Our senior hurlers drew with Moyne Templetouhy in wintry conditions in county championship on Saturday last, Burgess 3-15 Moyne 1-21. High winds coupled with sleet and snow showers made ball handling especially difficult. Our next opposition in the group is scheduled to be Toomevara, however Toome’s game v Holycross was postponed due to the weather conditions and this may effect our next fixture. We have also drawn Thurles Sarsfields in the quarter final of the Johnny Ryan senior league at home at a time and date to be confirmed.
