Newcastle were defeated by Grangemockler on Saturday night last in the hurling championship on a score of 4-9 to 1-10. Two goals conceded in the first quarter of the game and a third goal towards the end of the half left the half time score of 0-6 to 3-6 to Grangemockler. However,as Newcastle was playing against the wind there was optimism for the second half. A red card at the beginning of the second half left Newcastle with an uphill task. However, the Newcastle team showed great spirit to launch a fight back, with Barry Hickey scoring a great goal from a 21 yard free, only for their momentum to be halted by the intervention of the referee looking for an improvement in the discipline of both teams. The game was eventually finished off with a fourth goal for Grangemockler. Team: Eanna O'Flynn, Emmet Prendergast, Conor Grant, John O' Halloran, Daniel Kennedy, Brian Sweeney, Michael Kennedy, Shane Hickey, Caoimhín McGrath (capt), Barry Hickey, Vinny Carroll, Diarmuid Devaney, Ger Corcoran, and Brian Hyland.
