Junior footballers round off Ducon Cup campaign with home victory over Ballydesmond

Newmarket’s junior football team rounded off their Ducon Cup campaign with a good home victory over Ballydesmond by 0-14 to 2-2 on Monday evening last.

Newmarket took the lead thanks to a converted free by Gavin Forde before Eddie Allen slotted over a second three minutes later. Influential midfielder Kevin O’Sullivan had his first pointed free of the game before Ballydesmond opened their account with a thirteenth minute point. Newmarket enjoyed the territorial advantage and centre back Kevin O’Connor powered forward to kick a fine point in the fifteenth minute. Kevin O’Sullivan increased the lead and things got even better for Newmarket as Michael O’Leary surged forward to kick a fine point and Eddie Allen rounded off the half with a pointed free to give the hosts an interval lead of 0-7 to 0-1.
The second half had resumed for nine minutes before the next score arrived courtesy of Kevin O’Sullivan. Ballydesmond brought themselves back into contention when scoring the games first goal a minute later. Newmarket responded with a Kevin O’Sullivan point but Ballydesmond added a second goal to leave just a solitary point between the sides, 0-9 to 2-2 with sixteen minutes remaining. Newmarket kept their composure and once again Kevin O’Sullivan was the talisman as he added the next two points.
