The intermediate hurlers were defeated in the first round of the championship by Ballyhea last Sunday evening on a score line of 0-12 to 0-13.  Playing with the strong wind in the first half Newcestown took an early lead.  Following an off the ball incident a Ballyhea player was sent off, however they still managed to keep within 3 points of Newcestown by half time.  Ballyhea battled back in the second half and with time almost up trailed by only a single point.  Two late points swing this victory in the north cork men’s way.  Newcestown will now play Mallow in the second round on the 9th June.
