At half time the game was in the melting pot. Neither team had been dominant but one supporter made an interesting observation "A good goalie is vital to a team". Paddy Donnelan made some crucial saves to keep Broadford/SOB well in the game at half time.
Broadford/SOB started the stronger of the two teams the midfield of Cian Cremins and Niall Moloney battled hard to supply good ball to the forwards. Some excellent scores from play and frees by J.C. McMahon, Eoin Power and Jamie Butler. The backs battled hard in the first half with solid performances by the likes of Niall O' Brien and Darren McNamara. With the amount of chances the team had, it was hard to believe a scoreline of 1-5 for the first half. It was 1-5 to 2-6 at half time.
The Broadford/SOB team came out all guns blazing in the second half. Within 10 mins of the restart Broadford were level with scores from Niall O' Brien, J.C. McMahon and a well struck goal by Shane Quin Tuite. The next period of the game saw Broadford/SOB showing their forward power. Eoin Power was first to strike with a goal and then it was J.C. McMahon's turn aided by a superb aerial catch from Jack Ward Murphy. Newmarket had no answer as James Vaughan, Eanna McMahon and the other backs stood firm not allowing Newmarket get a vital goal to inspire them. Newmarket were able to pick off some points but points reined in also from Broadford. Scorers included Jamie Butler, a brace from Cian Cremins and three more from Eoin Power. Morgan Fitzgerald was unlucky not to score late on with a well struck shot.
Two wins from two. Well done to players and coaches.
