Newcestown v Bishopstown 4/2/2012

The Senior footballers played their 1st home game of the new season last Saturday afternoon where
they faced Bishopstown in the semi-final of the Tadhg Crowley plate. Playing with the elements
in the opening half, Bishopstown took full advantage and by the short whistle led by 0-6 to 0-1.
Newcestown thundered into the game in the second half and with ten minutes remaining drew level
and were then leading by a single point in the closing seconds only for Bishopstown to draw level
and take the game to extra time. Little separated the sides over the next 20 minutes of play and
once again Bishopstown needed a last gasp attempt to force the game to a replay which is fixed for
this Friday night @7.15pm in Cloughduv.
