Duhallow Schools’ blitz

Newmarket recently participated in the Duhallow School’s hurling blitz. They competed against Kanturk,  Ballyhass,  Banteer and C.B.C.Cork. The blitz was played in a resplendent venue in Banteer.

Newmarket started very brightly in the first game.They settled very quickly and and competed very well against their first opponents Kanturk. They established an early lead and maintained it for the rest of the game. Secondly, they played against C.B.C. and performed admirably.They won that game well and subsequently played against Banteer. Fortunately, Newmarket settled quickly and raced in to a early lead and won well in the end. As a consequence of these earlier victories Newmarket played for a place in the final against Ballyhass. In a very tense first half both teams finished level.In addition to that, both teams were tiring. Newmarket greater desire and skill levels finally won out and Newmarket qualified for the Duhallow final.

It was a great achievement for the school team to qualify for another final. Hopefully, they will do themselves justice in the final.

5th and 6th class
