Our under 16 hurlers made the journey to Castlemartyr
on Easter Monday to play Kiltha Óg in their first league match of the season.
Playing into a cold wind in the first half Newcestown found scores difficult to
come by. The half time score read Newcestown 1-1 Kiltha Óg 1-7.
The second half saw Newcestown gain a
foothold in the match and quickly gained control in a game that was turning out
to be a fierce encounter. However despite Newcestown’s dominance they found
themselves one point down with only minutes remaining. Our lads showed great
composure and a “Will to win” and responded in desirable fashion to score a
goal and a point in the final minutes to finish out three point winners. Well
done to all involved.
The final score was Newcestown 4-9, Kilta
