Burgess gaa notes August 21st 2017

Senior Hurling:
Our senior hurlers await news on their relegation fixtures. With Kiladangan eliminated from the North at the weekend and after Carrick Swans win in the south the structure of the play off is still unknown and unknowable at this point. Keep an eye on the clubs social media for more information as it arises.
Dermot Hogan Memorial Tournament:


Despite heavy persistent rain a fine crowd of Burgess and Coolderry Gaels assembled in Kilcolman on Saturday last as the minor & senior hurlers of Burgess and Coolderry played out two enthralling exhibition games. In the first game the Coolderry minors proved too strong for a depleted Burgess side and ran out 3-15 to 2-12 winners. This game was remarkable for the quality of score taken by both sides despite the torrential rain. There are some team and action photos from the game on the club facebook page.

The senior game was a more low scoring affair as the underfoot conditions deteriated further . Coolderry took a 2 point lead in at half time leading 0-5 to 0-7 but Burgess cancelled that lead within about two minutes of the restart and lead for the majority of the half but a late rally and a goal by Coolderry saw them snatch the win with the final score reading Burgess 0-13 Coolderry 1-13.

Afterwards refreshments were served for players and supporters in the hall and the Hogan family presented commemorative trophies to the captains of all four teams.

We would like to wish our friends in Coolderry the best of luck in the KNOCKOUT PHASE OF THE Offaly county championship and thank them for making the trip down to visit us.
