Our seniors went under to Newcestown today  in the county senior hurling c'ship replay at Coachford . We trailed early on by 2 points before Pa O'Callaghan opened our account from a 65 after 8 minutes . Pa had the sides level 4 minutes later with a pointed free . By the 20th minute we were in arrears by 1 point 0-4 to 0-3, Pa adding another free . 5 minutes later the sides were level 5 each Pa firing over our first score from play . The sides still couldn't be separated at the half time whistle with John Morrissey equalising with the last puck of the half . The Carbery side edged ahead early in the half again before Eugene O'Leary hit a purple patch scoring 3 points in 4 minutes to put us 2 ahead 9-7 after 36 minutes . This though seemed to spark Newcestown in to life and they reeled off 6 unanswered points to go 4 clear with 11 minutes to go . John Morrissey stopped the rot with a fine point and Pa had another free to leave 2 in it with 6 to go . As the game entered injury time Newcestown still led by 3 points and despite Ballyhea's best efforts they could not find a way through for the crucial equalising goal . Instead Luke Meade popped up at the other end deep in injury time to seal the victory for Newcestown. Ballyhea will now face Bishopstown in Round 2 in a few weeks time .
