The Senior footballers advance to the quarter final of the championship for the 1st time in the clubs history following a 2 point victory over Bishopstown in Ovens last Monday evening.  Newcestown got off to a good start and raced into a 2 pt lead before Bishopstown registered a score but by half time they clawed their way back into the contest and lead 0-5 to 0-4.  The second half continued in the same vein as the 1st with every ball fiercely contested and this was always going to be a low scoring contest.  Newcestown greater determination and ability to take their chances eventually proved the difference.  Final score 0-8 to 0-6.  Newcestown now play a fancied Carbery Rangers team in the quarter final.
