Newmarket suffer disappointing home intermediate league defeat to Kinsale

Newmarket suffered a disappointing home intermediate league defeat to Kinsale on Sunday afternoon with the visitors claiming a clear victory by 1-13 to 1-5.

Newmarket began well in the soggy conditions and some excellent approach play involving Kevin O’Sullivan and John Lane placed Nicky Flanagan in on goal and he drilled the ball past the Kinsale goalkeeper for a well finished fifth minute goal. Mark Reidy pointed superbly a minute later and T.J. Bodie converted a free in the eighth minute to give Newmarket a five point advantage. Kinsale opened their account with a thirteenth minute point before they found the target on a regular basis during the final ten minutes of the half. They reeled over five points in succession in an eight minute period to turn the game in their favour. Newmarket did regain parity with a T.J. Bodie free from the final kick of the half to leave the scoreline reading 1-3 to 0-6 at the interval.

Kinsale had the first point after the restart before John Lane levelled the scores for a third time with a fine point seven minutes into the half. Kinsale added the next two points before T.J. Bodie brought Newmarket to within a point with his third pointed free of the game midway through the half. The game then took a significant turn in Kinsale’s favour as they scored a goal in the next minute. Newmarket struggled for the remainder of the game and were made pay for some sloppy play on several occasions as Kinsale punished errors with points on the scoreboard. During the final quarter of the contest, Kinsale added four further points to their total to run out convincing winners.
