Newcestown had a winning start to their league campaign with a 4 point victory over arch rivals Bandon in the opening round of the league last Sunday evening in Newcestown.  In a perfect spring afternoon for hurling the league points were keenly contested with both sides eager to lay down a marker for the season to come.  A well taken goal by Cathrach Keane helped Newcestown to an eight point lead with 20 minutes remaining.  However, Bandon responded with a goal of their own and battled hard to reduced the deficit but Newcestown held firm. Final Score 1-15 to 1-11.
