Broadford could not have made a better start thanks to a goal from Padraig Hickey, slammed to the back of the net in the first minute of play and this was quickly followed by points from Aonghus O’Brien and Donie Whelan. This quick-fire approach set the pace for Broadford for the rest of the match.
Newmarket-on-Fergus got their first point on the board from a free and this was closely followed by a point from play but Broadford responded with a further three points of their own (two from play and another from a free) to quell the threat.
Twenty two minutes in and Braodford had built up a very healthy looking tally of points with just a further two points in response from Newmarket-on-Fergus. Newmarket-on-Fergus 0-04 Broadford 1-10. A goal from Donie Whelan set up by a pass from Darren Chapiln might have suggested that this game had been won before the first half was over but Newmarket-on-Fergus showed they still had something up their sleeve when they scored their only goal of the match minutes later. The ball which was sent powerfully from play some 25-meters in front of the goal but deflected off the tip of a Broadford hurley and in to the net after what otherwise seemed was going to be a fantastic block. The half-time score after yet another two points for Broadford was Newmarket-on-Fergus 1-04 Broadford 2-13.
In the second half, Newmarket-on-Fergus might have closed the gap with Broadford as on at least two occasions they came close to scoring goals from play in front of the square but luck was not with them and, as in the case of a number of other point scoring opportunities, wides were the order of the day. Broadford maintained its domination up and down the field end eventually left the field with a convincing win. Final score Newmarket-on-Fergus 1-10 Broadford 2-22.
