Burgess Gaa Notes 23rd April 2018

Senior Hurling:

Our seniors continued their great start to the year with a comprehensive 1-21 to 0-12 win over Templederry in the north senior championship. Our lads put in a great defensive performance in the opening half where we played against a very strong wind. Unfortunately we have a couple of injury concerns to key players in the aftermath of the game. Danny Ryan was the man who bagged our first half goal while Stephen Murray wowed the crowd with two brilliantly pointed line balls in the second half. Wingback Johnny Mulqueen was also on song firing over three lovely points from play while Eoin ‘Leahy’ Hogan did the ‘divil’ in the full forward line banging over five points. The win puts us in a quarter final against Nenagh on Sunday April 29th in Toomevara at 18:45 all support is greatly appreciated.

U14 football:

Our u14’s had a big away win over Kiladangan on Wednesday last. Well done to all.

U16 Football:

Our u16’s were beaten by Borrisokane on Tuesday last by a late goal but they regrouped and scored a fine 4-8 to 0-4 win over Newport on Saturday last.

Primary Schools Hurling:

The Youghalarra N.S. U11 hurling team won their North Tipp hurling blitz on Thursday 19th of April. The boys have now qualified for the county semi-final following victories over Cloughjordan, Rathcabbin, Boher and Kiladangan.
