Match report – County Senior League Burgess v Mullinahone

County Senior League 8th March 2020 Kilcoleman

Burgess 1-13 Mullinahone 0-15

Burgess eked out a one point win over Mullinahone in a game played in very tough conditions. Strong wind and frequent showers of hail and rain added to the difficulties for the players for whom underfoot conditions were very testing to say the least. Stephen Murray’s Goal after 2 minutes to open the Burgess account was worth the spin up to Kilcoleman alone. Burgess demonstrated lovely interplay in the lead up to it with a delightfully floated pass from Conor Gill to pick out Stephen who burned the Mullinahone defense with lightening pace and rifled an unstoppable shot into the net. A minor bout of handbags 5 mins after half time saw both sides reduced to 14 men with Pat Wood seeing red for the home side. Stephen Murray top scored for Burgess with 1-7, 1-3 of which came from play on very difficult day for accurate shooting. Burgess will be delighted to get off to a winning start for the 2020 season.

Kilruane made a blistering start to the game firing over three unanswered points in the first three minutes of the game against a stiff breeze. By the 15 minute mark Burgess trailed 6 points to 4.

Kilruane though were lively in attack and forced two good saves from Niall McGrath in the Burgess goals.

The second half mirrored the first with four unanswered points in three minutes against the breeze. Eoin Tossy Hogan had a goal bound shot deflected over the bar to put Burgess 3 points up 17 to 14 on the twelfth minute only for his name sake on the opposite team to level the game with a cracking goal at the other end two minutes later. It was nip and tuck for the remainder of the game with Kilruane salvaging a draw with a pointed injury time free, the final score Burgess 0-21 Kilruane 1-18.

Match Report – Burgess v Borrisokane u12b championship


Report by Derek Sharkey

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. Then a well worked goal in the last minute put us 3 points up. But again, with the last puck of the game Borrisokane responded with a goal off their own to level it up.

FT Score

Burgess 2-10 

Borrisokane 4-4. 

That leaves us top of the table and unbeaten in the group stages and should guarantee us a home semi spot. This team has again showed us great heart and their never say die attitude. Even when the chips were down they battled away to very nearly take the win. A Great little team !! Well done 👍

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.

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. 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 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 five points and 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.
