Burgess Gaa Notes 23rd April 2018

Senior Hurling:

Our seniors continued their great start to the year with a comprehensive 1-21 to 0-12 win over Templederry in the north senior championship. Our lads put in a great defensive performance in the opening half where we played against a very strong wind. Unfortunately we have a couple of injury concerns to key players in the aftermath of the game. Danny Ryan was the man who bagged our first half goal while Stephen Murray wowed the crowd with two brilliantly pointed line balls in the second half. Wingback Johnny Mulqueen was also on song firing over three lovely points from play while Eoin ‘Leahy’ Hogan did the ‘divil’ in the full forward line banging over five points. The win puts us in a quarter final against Nenagh on Sunday April 29th in Toomevara at 18:45 all support is greatly appreciated.

U14 football:

Our u14’s had a big away win over Kiladangan on Wednesday last. Well done to all.

Senior Hurling:

On Sunday April 15th in Toomevara our senior hurlers begins this Seamus O Rian campaign against JK Brackens at 5pm. All support is greatly appreciated. Donagh Maher was a second half substitute for the Tipp hurlers in their league final defeat to Kilkenny on Sunday last.

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.
