Our U12 Hurlers played Borrisokane in the last round group game in Borrisokane yesterday evening. Burgess played the first half against a strong breeze we went in at half time with the score 4 points a piece. 

In the second half 2 quick Borrisokane goals put us under immense pressure but we kept the score board ticking over with points until we hit the net to go 1 point up. But on the puck out Borrisokane responded with a goal of their own. Again the lads battled on and levelled it with 2 well worked points to square it up.

Burgess v Holycross county senior league match report

County Senior League – Burgess 1-15 Holycross Ballycahill 3-17

img_5223-1

A heavily depleted Burgess outfit hurled with the aid of a stiff breeze in the first half of this county league group game and though they had twenty scoring opportunities in the opening period their return was a meagre ten points. Holycross goaled in the 7th minute to gain the lead for the first time in the match 1-02 to 0-3 after some good combination play. Burgess, despite their ferocious wide count, had the game on level terms by the 18th minute but just could not make their wind assisted dominance count on the score board and they were all square at half time, Burgess 0-10 Holycross Ballycahill 1-7.

The second half was tit for tat with points until the 23rd minute when a Niall McGrath was deceived a ball that took and unfortunate hop to push Holycross into a one goal lead. Holycross immediately added a point from the puckout to go four in front. Burgess struck back immediately with a goal from Ronan Tucker to leave a point between the teams Burgess 1-15 Holycross 2-13 and five minutes remaining. But disaster struck and Holycross had the ball in the Burgess net almost immediately after Ronans effort. Holycross tacked on four more unanswered points in the remaining couple of minutes to give them a flattering 3-17 to 1-15 win. Burgess will rue their 17 wides, two gilt edged goal chances amongst them. Best on show for Burgess were the half back line of JP Grace John O’Dwyer and Johnny Mulqueen. Keith Nealon and Danny Ryan hurled very well also.

Burgess Team: Niall McGrath, Pat Woods, Jack O’Flaherty, Willie Ryan,, Johnny Mulqueen,  John O’Dwyer, JP Grace, Kieran Ryan (0-1), Danny Ryan (0-2), John O’Brien (0-1), Keith Nealon (0-8 4f), Paddy Hogan, Ronan Tucker (1-2), Shane Maher (0-1), Eoin Hogan. Subs used: Brian Hogan, Tadhg O’Halloran.

Match Report – U16 footballers reach North Final


The Burgess U16 footballers played Moneygall/ Clonakenny in the Football semifinal this evening at 7pm in Moneygall. Burgess played into the wind and up the hill in the 1st half. It was always going to be a tight game as we had lost to them by 1 point in an earlier round. 

The 1st half finished on score line of 4 points each. In the second half against the run of play MG/CY scored a soft goal. But credit to the Burgess lads they didn’t panic and scored the next 4 points without reply. 

Poor discipline by MG/CY lead to them losing 2 players. With the seconds counting down MG/CY won a free 14 metres out. The free was saved on the line and the referee blew the final whistle leaving Burgess through to the final on a scoreline of Burgess 0-08 to Moneygall/Clonakennys 1-04. 

We will be underdogs in the final but we know the lads will give everything.

Big thank you to Pat Gibson for supplying the match report.

Burgess had things well under control for the 1st quarter of an hour of this game with a lead of 1-5 to 0-2. The Burgess scores coming from Bill O’Flaherty, Stephen Murray, Eoin Hogan and Danny Ryan. Ryan goaled after collecting a break from a long range John O’Dwyer free and his finish was the definition of clinical. Stephen Murray caught the eye too with a point from a monstrous side line cut. Brackens to their credit launched a comeback after being stung by the concession of the goal and hit three on the trot to leave just a goal between the teams with 25 minutes gone.  That however was a close as Brackens would get as three more Burgess point’s courtesy of Stephen Murray and Keith Nealon left the half time score Burgess 1-8 JK Brackens 0-9.

Burgess got off to a blistering start to the second half and stretched their lead to 2-9 to 0-6 within a couple of minutes of the restart. Murray was first to register with a point followed by Eoin Leahy Hogan who bagged the goal with an expertly placed shot past the Brackens keeper. Five minutes later Burgess heaped on more misery for Brackens through Bill O’Flaherty who also found the net. Brackens tried hard but just couldn’t unlock the Burgess defence. They even had a penalty rebound off the upright only to be cleared down the field. Burgess ran out comfortable winners in the end with a final score line of Burgess 3-13 JK Brackens 0-9.

Burgess scorers: Bill O’Fllaherty 1-1, Stephen Murray 0-7(2f), Eoin Hogan 1-1, Danny Ryan 1-2, Keith Nealon 0-1
