Minor Hurling League

Cloughduv V Newcestown

7th April in Cloughduv at 6pm

Half time score:  Cloughduv 1-6   Newcestown 0-6
Full time score:  Cloughduv 1-9    Newcestown 0-16 

This game was meant to be held in Newcestown but because of the pitch being unplayable it was transferred to Cloughduv.  By half time Newcestown were trailing after they conceded a sloppy goal.  First half scores coming from Olan Walsh, Colm O’Donovan and Darragh McAree.  Things didn’t fall into place for Newcestown in the first half although they tried hard.

In the second half Newcestown were much tidier and more clinical in the way they finished and stronger.  Seamus O’Sullivan went back into defence and Conor Goggin moved into midfield and this change suited the play, giving more of a balance.  Points in the second half came from Eddie Kenneally, Eoghan Collins and Seamus O’Sullivan.  Considering Newcestown were missing one or two players, they were down by 3 points at half time but fought hard to come back into it and win it by 4 points.

Team: C. Wilson, B. Coughlan, D. Buttimer, R. O’Sullivan, T. Coughlan, E. Collins, G. Kelleher, C. O’Donovan, S. O’Sullivan, O. Walsh, E. Kenneally, C. Goggin, D. Giles, D. McAree, B. Murphy, J. Ryan, R. Power, E. Calnan.
