Burgess 0-21 Kilruane 1-18 county senior league Match report

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. The Burgess scores coming from Brian Hogan, Ben Cooney and Eoin Leahy Hogan. The Burgess recovery continued in an entertaining and high scoring half which ended with the sides level at 11 points each. 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.

An entertaining game with plenty of scores and drama and great debut for two new faces on the Burgess senior team, minors Ben Cooney and Stephen Kirwan, both of whom got their names on the scoresheet with well taken points. Well done lads!

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.
