(Colin Coleman & Ciarán Flynn)
The B team will probably feel that these were points dropped rather than a point gained when recording a 2-2 draw at home to Caherdavin A. The lads took a 2-0 lead into the interval through goals from youngsters Colin Coleman & Ciarán Flynn. However, with the strong breeze at their backs the visitors took a foothold in the second half and scored in the 75th minute to narrow the gap. However, Newport looked like they would hold on to take all 3 points and created enough chances to win the game but failed to put the game to bed. For the second game running the concession of a late, late penalty proved to be costly. In saying that, the lads played well and before the game a point would have been very acceptable. Next up is away to Athlunkard on Saturday evening.
Match Squad: Brendan Coffey, Killian O’Malley, Jack Noble, Odhrán Brett, Dave Murray, David O’Brien, Ciarán Flynn, John Barry, Mattie Connolly, Colin Coleman, Nathan Hartigan, Pa Murtagh, Dermot Ryan, Aaron O’Neill, Daniel Egan & Jay Madden.
