Newcestown v St Nicholas 19/6/2011

The senior footballers progressed to the 4th round of the championship last Sunday night in Brinny where they defeated St. Nicks on a score of 2-9 to 1-7.  On a perfect evening for football this game never produced the expected fireworks.  A well taken goal by Tadhg Twomey early in the opening half failed to spring the St. Johns men into life and St Nicks proved to be a very dogged outfit and by halftime led 0-6 to 1-2. The second half saw a different Newcestown team emerge from the dressing rooms and they quickly took a strangle hold of the game which was reflected on the scoreboard by a second goal by man of the match Barry Horgan who finished with 1-5 from play.  Newcestown pushed on to eventually win by a margin of 5 points.  Newcestown can now look forward to the upcoming draw for the next round and senior football status for 2012.
