The intermediate hurlers crashed out of the premier intermediate hurling championship last weekend in Pairc ui Rinn where they were defeated by Youghal in the semi final stage by 5 points.  Newcestown got off to the perfect start with a goal in the opening minutes.  Thereafter Youghal got two goals of their own and were leading in the interval by 2-6 to 1-4.  Youghal took a further grip on the game early in the second half with further points.  Newcestown responded in typical determined fashion and reduced the deficit to 2 points with 15 minutes remaining. That was as close as Newcestown got as Youghal added further points to eventually run out winners on a score line of 2-12 to 2-7
