Newmarket’s Junior B footballers played host to Rockchapel in Round 1 of the Duhallow championship, on Sunday the 5th of September.
The visitors had much the brighter start and dispite points from TJ Bodie and Robert Stack, Rockchapel lead 0-03 to 1-06 at the first water break. During the next quarter, Rockchapel added another brace of points, to hold a strong half time lead, 0-03 to 1-08.
A Robert Stack goal just after the break ignited Newmarket’s challenge and it was quickly followed up by a 45 from Shane McAuliffe minutes later. Further scores from Nicky Barrett and TJ Bodie reduced the arrears to a single score, with Newmarket trialing 1-06 to 1-09 on 42 minutes. The visitors found another gear though and dominated the remainder of the scoring, winning out, 1-07 to 2-13, on the night.
