Junior A hurling:

Our juniors got themselves into the knockout phase of the north league after an absorbing dogfight in Newport at the weekend. We were up against it at half time after Newport made the most of home advantage and a stiff breeze to go in with a 1-11 to 0-8 lead. John O’Briens accuracy from placed balls was all that was keeping us in touch.

A string of bad wides early in the second half didn’t bode well but our troops but our lads upped the ante and a Ronan Tucker goal set the game up for an exciting finish. After a break in play for a nasty injury inflicted on David Seymour our boys rallied to the cause and lead for the first time in the game when it mattered most. Peter Gill was the hero with the winning score three minutes into injury time , Burgess 1-16 Newport 1-15.

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!

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.

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.

Match Report Burgess v Mullinahone Senior Challenge Cup

Burgess v Mullinahone 20th March 2016 – Kilcoleman

25846251801_9d60d526fc_z

Burgess 3-13 Mullinahone 0-15 County Senior Challenge Cup

The opening exchanges in this game were marked by fierce tackling by the Mullinahone backs. This was a definite step up in intensity from our first game in this competition last week against Ballina. This ferocity in the tackle may go some way toward explaining our wayward shooting in the first half which was completely at odds with the accuracy displayed last week.

The game started brightly for us with Stephen Murray firing over a lovely point off his left hand side from the touch line straight from the throw in. Murray would add two more frees to leave us 3 points to 1 ahead with 10 minutes played. By this point it was apparent that we weren’t going to see as high scoring a game as we had  the previous week against Ballina with both sets of backs taking no prisoners.

By the 15th minute we were 2 points down with Mullinahone racing into a 2 point lead, 5 to 3. Our wide count was now beginning to look very worrying indeed.

Two excellent long range points from Brian Hogan and a Murray free along with three more points from Mullinahone left us 2 points adrift despite creating the Lion’s share of scoring chances with 3 minutes remaining in the half.

Mullinahone, poised to go in ahead at half time, were rocked by 2 goals scored in under a minute. The first, a bullet, from Bill O’Flaherty who collected a breaking ball and got inside the Mullinahone defence to blast a shot past the Mullinahone keeper. The second came almost straight from the resulting puck out when Shane Maher’s hard work created an opportunity to work the ball into Damien O’Brien who made no mistake in placing the ball into the Mullinahone net.

So when the half time whistle blew Burgess went in an unlikely four points ahead. Burgess 2-6 Mullinahone 0-8

Once again straight from the throw in it was Stephen Murray got the scoring underway with fine point from 50m. Three minutes later the ever accurate Eoin Kelly replied with a pointed free for Mullinahone. A minute later though, Kelly’s point was more than cancelled out when Bill O’Flaherty scrambled home his second goal for the day to give us a healthy 3-7 to 0-9 lead. The Mullinahone backs had failed to deal with a long range Murray free leaving Bill with a simple tap in. Three minutes later a harsh over carrying call against Tossy gave Eoin Kelly another pointed free, this time from the middle of the field. Burgess answered that score immediately with an absolute monster of a score from Noel Gleeson. Another two pointed frees from Kelly left the score Burgess 3-8 Mullinahone 0-12 after 10 minutes of the 2nd half. Our indiscipline was allowing Mullinahone back into this game.

Yet another Kelly free was answered by an excellent Donagh Maher point from play and another Murray pointed free. The scoring for the afternoon was rounded out by Brian Hogan and Stephen Murray for Burgess with Eoin Kelly remaining Mullinahone’s only scorer in the second half, finishing with 7 pointed frees for the second period.

The final score Burgess 3-13 to Mullinahone’s 0-15 was a fair reflection on our efforts over the sixty minutes though with so much of Mullinahone’s tally coming from placed balls we will certainly have to take a look at our discipline.

The team that started: Niall McGrath, John O’Dwyer, Jack O’Flaherty, Willie Ryan, Kieran Ryan, Donagh Maher, Noel Gleeson, Brian Hogan, Eoin Tossy Hogan, Damien O’Brien, Stephen Murray, Bill O’Flaherty, Keith Nealon, Shane Maher, Danny Ryan.
