Newport Gaels U14's experienced the highs and lows of sport in the space of a few days last week. On Tuesday night they entertained Roscrea in a Feile Hurling replay and what a cracker this turned out to be. The sides finished level once again at normal full time on a scoreline of 2-5 to 3-2. Extra time failed to separate the sides with Newport scoring 6 points to Roscrea's 2 goals to leave the scoreline 2-11 to 5-2. Each side were then given 3 "65's" to take and Roscrea emerged victorious from this on a 1-0 scoreline much to the disappointment of the local lads and their supporters.
However they recovered from this setback, when on Thursday night in Kilcoleman, they comprehensively beat Inane Rovers in the North Peil na nÓg final. Afterwards the cup was presented to team captain Kealan Floyd by the North Bord Chairman Mike Flynn. They now go on to meet Clonmel Commercials in the County Semi Final on the 5th of May with the County Final also scheduled for the same day.
