Nicky Flanagan gave Newmarket the lead with the first score of the contest before Boherbue responded with two points. Kevin O’Sullivan tied the scores for a second time but Boherbue had the next two points to establish an advantage. Newmarket replied as John Cronin fired home a goal but Boherbue’s fifth point of the half gained parity for a third time. The visitors edged in front before half time to leave the score at 0-6 to 1-2.
Boherbue were first to point after the restart but a Colin Stack point kept Newmarket very much in the hunt. The sides again traded points with Nicky Flanagan on target for the home side before Boherbue reeled off three points in succession to take a four point advantage. Newmarket replied in fine fashion with a similar return of three points in succession through Nicky Flanagan and a double from Daniel Culloty to leave the score reading 0-11 to 1-7. Boherbue, however, took a grip on the contest when they added a point and crucially found the net to put five points between the sides. Boherbue completed their victory with another two points to maintain a position at the top of the table.
