By Paula Carr Whelan

Wolfe Tones 6-04

Newmarket-on-Fergus 0-04

Venue: Shannon


With a different format for the Féile games, 2 x 15 minutes halves is all the teams had to get their attack going. Wolfe Tones got off to a great start with two goals in two possessions, one from the very strong Liam Murphy, the Wolfe Tones Captain and centre forward.


Newmarket got the next score from a placed ball, a point off the stick of Peter Power. Newmarket playing with a strong breeze in the first half  and found it hard to get the ball on target with two wides in succession.


Wolfe Tones came back with a point from play with Peter Power responding with another free.  Another goal for Wolfe Tones from Liam Murphy with a long range free beating Cian Foley in the Newmarket goal. Wolfe Tones certainly had their minds set on goals this evening scoring another goal from a clearance from Foley in goal, they took another point form a free.


Peter Power then landed Newmarket’s third point from a free in the opening 15 minutes.  Leaving it Wolfe Tones 4-2  Newmarket 0-3. Wolfe Tones came out in the 2nd half and again took another goal this time from Eoin Duff. Newmarket opened their scoring from play from a point from Conor Freeman. The Shannon side scored a point from a free just before Seadhna Liddy narrowly struck the ball wide for a goal chance for Newmarket. Wolfe Tones took another point from a free, with Newmarket finishing with 2 points from play from Seadhna Liddy and JJ Hanton.



Overall Wolfe Tones played well throughout taking the scoring chances and finishing the goal chances they got. Newmarket fought hard and will have another chance to make amends for this defeat next Friday night at home. Peter Power, Conor Freeman and Seadhna Liddy battled hard.
