Match Report –A well-earned win over Cappamore.
Lyons of Limerick Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship
Killmallock was the venue for this much anticipated clash between NCW and Cappamore last Saturday evening. A must win game for Cappamore who had yet to win a game in the Championship meant that it was bound to be a good contest. Newcastle West started very well with good scoring from Bryan Nix (Captain) , Eoin Hurley, Willie Hurley, and Ethan Hurley. Although the backs were caught for a goal in the first half NCW kept the score board ticking over and some excellent play especially from Ethan Hurley and Bryan Nix really produced some impressive scores. In the second half our backs held solid, and Newcastle West edged ahead for most of the game. There was a missed goal chance at 50 mins in when Bryan Nix and Ethan Hurley made great play and it just missed the net. Then Cappamore hit a purple patch and began to catch up on the scoring. At 54th min, Cappamore levelled with NCW but Thomas Quilligan, scored an excellent point to pull ahead again and NCW dug in and finished with three over on the scoreboard. NCW were by far the better team on the night. A real marked improvement game on game. Cappamore really stuck with them and fought for every score in a crucial game for them, so it wasn’t an easy win by no means. Well done boys and looking forward to the next game this weekend. Referee was Johnny Murphy (Glenroe)
Team: Michael Quilligan, Aaron Neville, Maurice Murphy, Lee Wolfe, Michael Cremin, Todd Donavan, John Whelan, Ruadhan O’Connor, Ethan Hurley, Brian Hurley, Willie Hurley Jnr, Bryan Nix, Con Hayes, Mike McMahon, Eoin Hurley Subs used: Thomas Quilligan for Willie Hurley Jnr., Colm Foley for Todd Donavan and Jack O’Connor for Brian Hurley.

Match Report – Junior B’s defeated by Adare
West Junior B Hurling Quarter Final Championship
Game took place in Kileedy last Friday evening. Adare were hotly tipped to win this quarter final. In the first half NCW really struggled to get some points on the board and at the break Adare led 0-11 to 0-04. A red card for NCW before the break meant that NCW were facing most of the game with fourteen men. Regardless in the second half Newcastle West played better and rallied. Although they didn’t come out on the right side on the night, they did themselves proud by battling to the end. Hard luck boys.

Mr. Binman U17 Hurling Championship Division 2A round 4
Kildimo / Pallaskenry 0.18
On Wednesday evening last we travelled to play Kildimo / Pallaskenry in Pallaskenry in the 4th round of the championship. From the throw in both teams gave 100 %. Cathal Hayes opened the scoring for NCW with a great point under pressure from defence. Sean Lyons scored a great goal to put Newcastle West up 1.01 to 0.02.
Newcastle worked hard all through the first 30 mins and just before half time Darragh O Keeffe added a second great goal. NCW lead at half time: 2.08 to 10.
Newcastle West started the 2nd half as they finished the first half on the front foot. The backs held strong all through. Darragh Tierney brought off a fantastic save in the second half. Kildimo/Pallaskenry really played a hard competitive game and all that were present thoroughly enjoyed the play. Our midfield worked hard all through and all the forwards worked tirelessly. Must be said it was a super team performance, everyone represented the jersey with pride in a very sporting game in which both teams gave everything. Newcastle West came out on top and really showed determination and grit against a very good Kildimo/ Pallaskenry side. Well done the boys in black and white.
