MATCH REPORT: Burgess 3-16 Lorrha 1-14 – county senior league 2017

Burgess 3-16 Lorrha 1-14


County Senior League 26th March 2017

After winning the toss Lorrha opted to play with a strong wind behind them in the first half andm they raced into a 2 point lead with three minutes played. Burgess initially struggled to cope with the strong breeze but a fantastic piece of individual skill by Stephen Murray after an excellent Tossy Hogan delivery gave Burgess a one point lead and the first goal of the game. Lorrha responded with two more points before Murray struck again with a pointed free.  It was nip and tuck thereafter as both sides exchanged points and by my reckoning and that of a fair few others in the field that Lorrha led 1-5 to 0-10 at half time. The referee however had the game a draw at half time. Burgess 1-6 Lorrha 0-9.

Burgess were first on the score board after four minutes of the second half when Eoin Leahy Hogans fine work under the dropping ball put Stephen Murray through for his second goal of the game. Fair dues to Lorrha who despite the goal and injury some setbacks fought back to gamely level the game with 15 minutes remaining but a third Burgess goal after some classy interplay finished by Eoin Tossy Hogan essentially decided the fixture with 12 minutes to play. Burgess finished the game strongly to run out 3-16 to 1-14 winners and claim their second victory of this league campaign.

Burgess scorers: Stephen Murray 2-5, Eoin Tossy Hogan 1-0, Shane Maher 0-1, Keith Nealon 0-2, Danny Ryan 0-4, Eoin Leahy Hogan 0-2, Willie Ryan 0-1.

Burgess Team: Niall McGrath, Pat Woods, Jack O’Flaherty, Paddy Hogan, Brian Hogan, John O’Dwyer, Willie Ryan, Conor Gill, Shane Maher, Eoin Tossy Hogan, Keith Nealon, John O’Brien, Danny Ryan, Stephen Murray, Eoin Leahy Hogan. Subs Used: Andy Dunne, Bill O’Flaherty.
