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 v Holycross county senior league match report

County Senior League – Burgess 1-15 Holycross Ballycahill 3-17


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.
