The intermediate hurlers were narrowly defeated by Mallow last Sunday afternoon in a pulsating 2nd round championship contest against Mallow in Cloughduv.  A well taken goal in the opening half by Trevor Horgan ensured Newcestown took a 3 point interval lead.  Mallow fought back gallantly in the second half to push the game into extra time. Newcestown looked to have the contest in their grasp after taking an early 5 point lead in the opening half, however Mallow once again fought back and grabbed two quick goals in succession with time almost up.  A late goal by Daniel Twomey reduced the deficit to a point but Newcestown were unable to carve out an equaliser. Final Score 3-20 to 3-19.  Newcestown will now have one final chance to remain in the championship next weekend
