Newcastlewest 1-11 Monaleen 2-17
Our boys made the short trip to Mick Nevillle park Rathkeale for the third round of the championship on Friday night. . In blistering hot conditions Monaleen came out well on top in an evening when things didnt go our way.
The first 15 minutes were very entertaining and lively and with the teams tied on 4 points a piece it looked like it was turning into a tight affair. However Monaleen got a grip of the game around the middle of the field and got a 4 point lead. Then a goal following a breakdown in a NCW attack really gave Monaleen some breathing space and on such a hot night it was going to be difficult to claw back big leads. At half time the score was 1-10 to 0-8 to Monaleen.
NCW started the second half brightly but we failed to convert our advantage into scores and a second Monaleen goal put 8 between the sides. In fairness to our boys they never gave up and Brian Hurley scored a great goal to get the gap back to five. However a physcially strong Monaleen side used their recent years in the senior ranks to good use and closed out the victory. The scoreline probably didnt reflect the true story as like most teams we tried to force goals towards the end rather than taking a few points in an effort to close the gap. However on the night Monaleen were the better side.
The lads now have 3 points out of possible 6 as the championship takes a break until September. It is turning out to be a very competitive championship but the lads still have the possibilty of making the last 4 with a few wins. The focus now turns to the senior football championship for the next few weeks in a very busy period for the boys. Best of luck to everyone involved.
Also best of luck to the u 19s who play in the county premier hurling semi final Vs Bruff on Tuesday night in what should be a cracker in Mick Neville.
