Scorer: Aaron Coleman
Newport played Lough Derg in the second round of the National Cup at home on Saturday morning. In what turned out to be a tough encounter with both sides giving as good they got. Lough Derg took the lead when a clearance from the goal line was picked up and finished to the corner of the net 1-0.
Newport upped the pace and when a corner wasn’t cleared properly it was picked up by Aaron Coleman who drilled the ball to the bottom corner. 1-1 at half time.
The second half was an even affair but Lough Derg took the lead half way through the second half and held on to the lead till the end.
Well done lads for a great effort today.
