Newcestown v Carbery Rangers 10/9/2011

The senior footballers exited the championship last Saturday evening (10/9/2011. They were defeated by Carbery Rangers in the quarter final replay on a score of 0-11 to 0-6.  This game never lived up to the excitement or intensity of the drawn match the previous week.  Playing with a very strong wind in the 1st half Carbery Rangers took full advantage and were in a commanding position  (leading 0-8 to 0-1) when they turned to face the elements in the second half.  Newcestown tried gallantly to reduce the deficit but the determined Rangers defence held firm.  This was an excellent campaign for our senior footballers who returned to this rank for the 1st time in 6 years.
