Scorers: Jay Ryan 6 & Daniel Egan 2
This was a lovely sunny evening and the game was played on the home team’s large Astro Pitch. Based on League positions this was a game that Newport were favourites to win and the hope was that 3 further points would be gained. Newport only had the bare 11 players on the night, but this had little impact to them as they totally dominated Regional from the Off. Newport launched wave after wave of attack and the goals began to flow after the 10 min period when Jay Ryan slotted to the net to Put Newport ahead. Jay would add an astonishing 4 more goals before the break and Dan Egan added another to leave Newport 6-0 up at the break. Regional did far better in the second half and managed to score 3 goals but the Newport Boys added 2 more of their own through Jay Ryan and Dan Egan to leave the final score as a very comfortable 8-3 victory for the Newport Boys- Job done!!
