The intermediate hurlers were back in action on Sunday morning last against arch rivals Valley Rovers in Brinny before a large crowd.  In a close contest there was little to separate the sides but Newcestown prevailed by a single point to take the league points.  Final score 0-18 to 1-14.  Later in the afternoon the junior hurlers got their league campaign off to a winning start at home to O’Donovan Rossa where the St. Johns outfit ran out comfortable winners on a score of  4-12 to 1-9.  The score of the game and indeed the weekend came from an acrobatic overhead volley to the net by the energetic Mikey Hickey.  This score would have been fitting to grace any occasion!!
