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 Óg 2-12.
