Junior A Hurling:

North Tipp Junior A hurling League

Burgess 1-16 Templederry 1-10 – 1st April 2017 Templederry
Despite playing against a very strong breeze and and having to look into the low sun Burgess found themselves hurling well and enjoying a 0-4 to 0-2 lead after 10 minutes. Those scores coming by way of two Eoin Hogan frees and points from play by Conor Gill and John O’Brien. A melee, caused by some very indiscriminate pulling by a Templederry forward, resulted in both teams being reduced to 14 men. Points by Eoin and Paddy Hogan gave Burgess a slender 0-7 to 0-6 half time lead.

After eight minutes of the second half Burgess were motoring well having extended their lead to to five points, 1-9 to 0-7. The points coming from Eoin Hogan and the goal a low sun assisted Kieran Ryan long range free. After 13 minutes of the half the Burgess lead was looking even more comfortable with points from Eoin Hogan, Paddy Hogan and Johnny Ryan to leave Burgess 1-12 to 0-7 to the good. Templederry then struck with a fabulous goal to reduce the lead to just five points and continued to put Burgess under real pressure for the remainder of the game. Burgess finished strongly though with scores from Conor Gill and Eoin Hogan to run out 1-16 to 1-10 winners.

The Burgess Team: Paul Carroll, Lee Howard, Pat Woods, David Seymour, Tony Hogan, Kieran Ryan, Brian Tucker, Conor Gill, Johnny Ryan, Sean Flynn, Paddy Hogan, Aidan O’Flaherty, Andy Dunne, John O’Brien, Eoin Hogan. Subs Tadhg O’Halloran, Paudie Gill.
