Scorer: Cormac Shanahan (3)
Hard luck to the U14 schoolboys who lost out by the odd goal in a 7 goal cup thriller in Derryleigh Park this afternoon against Kilmallock. The visitors came out of the blocks the fastest and took a two goal lead but credit to the Newport lads who brought the game back to 2-2.
This was a typical cup contest with lots of thrills & spills and super commitment by all the players. Extra-time might have been fair but unfortunately it is Kilmallock who advance to the next round. Special mention for Cormac Shanahan who topped off a fine game with a well-taken hat-trick.
