Colin’s brother Kevin O’Sullivan responded to a Kiskeam point with a well taken score. The critical score of the match occurred just before the half time whistle as TJ Brosnan embarked on a long run with the ball from his full back position beating several Kiskeam men in the process. He then proceeded to kick a fine effort in the top left hand corner of the net in what was remarkable effort. Newmarket led 1-07 to 0-8 points at half time
