NEWTOWNSHANDRUM SCORED 11 points without reply to claim a stunning three point victory over Bishopstown in the Cork Premier SHC today.

Mark Driscoll’s goal saw Bishopstown leading by 1-15 to 0-10 with 15 minutes remaining but Newtownshandrum took control and dominated the final quarter to claim the victory.

Dermot McCarthy arrived off the bench to hit 0-3, while Tim O’Mahony and Jamie Coughlan added late scores to seal the victory.

Kanturk proved too strong for Cloyne in a game that saw Cork goalkeepers past and present, Donal Og Cusack and Anthony Nash, face-off. Cusack made a couple of vital second-half saves but couldn’t prevent Cloyne from falling to defeat as Lorcán McLoughlin grabbed 1-4 for the victors. 

Elsewhere in the Rebel County today, Na Piarsaigh and Carrigtwohill played out a draw, Fermoy defeated Mallow and Newcestown had five points to spare over Killeagh. 

Finally, Roanmore were convincing winners over Clonea and Passage beat Tallow by four in the Waterford SHC.
