Scorers: Jack O’Carroll 2, Colin Coleman & Jack Noble
The 18s advanced to the Div 2 Cup semi-final, where they will be away to Caherdavin, following a hard-earned 4-1 win away to Regional. Jack O’Carroll with 2, Colin Coleman & Jack Noble on the score-sheet. Jack O’Caroll’s 2 goals keep him top of the goalscoring charts in Div 2. Newport took the lead in the game and should have increased their advantage but failed to do so and when Regional scored a soft goal to equalise, it seemed to boost their confidence. They were awarded a penalty early in the second half but substitute keeper, Jack O’Sullivan, who came on at half-time made a brilliant save. Newport finished the game stronger and 3 goals in the final quarter were enough to seal safe passage to the semi-final.
Match Squad: Josh White, Chris Carmody, Jack Noble, Killian O’Malley, John Ryan Rose, Devon Ryan, Ciaran Flynn, Brendan McMahon, Jack O’Carroll, Colin Coleman, Daniel Egan, Haytam Kamil, Jack O’Sullivan, Jack Ryan & Cian O’Connell
