Burgess GAA Notes 14th August 2017

Senior Hurling:

We were defeated in our final group game of the county championship by Éire Óg Annacarty 2-20 to 1-17. This loss puts us into a four way relegation play off against Ballina, Carrick Swan and Kiladangan with two to go down. Kiladangan and Carrick Swan can escape relegation should they manage to win their divisional championships. We play Coolderry next week in Kilcolman in the Dermot Hogan Memorial tournament.

U16 Hurling:


Burgess U16 played Borrisokane in round 3 of the north championship on Tuesday last at 7pm in Kilcoleman. In what was a keenly contested game with only a puck of the ball separating the teams throughout. Borrisokane lead by 2 points at half time. The game continued in the same vain for the second half with both teams fighting for every possession and score. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be Burgess day as we went down by 3 points on a final score line of Burgess 2-07, Borrisokane 1-13. Burgess can be proud of their work rate and this was their best performance so far.

Junior A Hurling:


Our Junior A hurlers qualified for the North Junior A league final by beating Nenagh on Wednesday evening last 1-15 to 0-11. Unfortunately though were beaten by a very efficient Toomevara outfit in the North league final on Sunday last. 4-18 to 2-14.

We left ourselves too much work to do against the wind in the second half but fair play to our lads they never gave up and stayed battling to the end. 

Congratulations to Toome on a fine display.

We will begin our North championship campaign against Nenagh on the weekend of July 8th. See the Guardian fixtures and the clubs social media for further fixture information.

U10 Hurling:


Our u10’s played a good tough challenge match against Kiladangan GAA in Kilcoleman on Tuesday last. Well done to both teams for putting in a fine full blooded display of hurling. 

U12 Hurling:

Our U12 Hurlers played Borrisokane in the last round group game in Borrisokane on Friday 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
