New­town’s Se­nior cham­pi­onship cam­paign came to an end in Aughrim on Sun­day, when, af­ter a great match, they just ran out of steam against for­mer cham­pi­ons Rath­new. New­town got off to a fly­ing start with three unan­swered points, and hav­ing dom­i­nated the first-half, led 0-5 to 0-3 at half-time. Rath­new got the first point of the sec­ond-half, but then New­town got back into their stride and held off Rath­new un­til the 17th minute when Rath­new drew level at 0-7 each. From then on Rath­new be­gan to get on top, and a goal set­tled New­town’s fate. How­ever, the men in black and white can be proud of this per­for­mance, and for a long time it looked as if an up­set was on the cards, but Rath­new’s long cham­pi­onship ex­pe­ri­ence told in the end. The fi­nal score was 1-12 to 0-09. New­town are still very much in con­tention for league hon­ours and will get an­other tilt at Rath­new in the league when the sides meet in New­town. New­town scores came from Gar­rett Doyle and Dean Od­lum 0-3 each, Paudie Doyle 0-2, John Hef­fer­nan 0-1.
