Newmarket ‘s senior footballers rounded off a busy spell of league games with another victory from the long journey to Adrigole by 1-10 to 0-11, on a sunny Sunday afternoon in the Beara peninsula.
Newmarket made a flying start to the contest as T.J. Bodie and John Lane pointed. Newmarket strengthened their position when David O’Flynn finished off a fine flowing move in style by surging past the centre of the defence to finish coolly into the bottom corner of the net. Adrigole responded with their first two points of the afternoon. T.J. Bodie pointed for a second time as the sides exchanged the next couple of points. Newmarket increased their advantage going into the interval as points from Kevin O’Sullivan and John Lane left the score line at 1-5 to 0-3.
Two Adrigole points cut the deficit to a clear goal before the impressive David O’Flynn and T.J. Bodie from a free re-established Newmarket’s five point cushion. The home side added another brace of points with John Ryan getting forward to kick an excellent point from the right hand side for Newmarket. Adrigole made further inroads into the lead with two points in succession as the gap was reduced to two points. John Lane kept Newmarket on the front foot with a vital third point but Adrigole answered again with a point. The scoring concluded in a similar manner, as again, Newmarket’s talisman John Lane was on hand to register an important point before the home side finished with the final score of the game. As the game concluded Newmarket held on to go top of Division 3 on ten points from six league outings.
