Clare Cup Final spot secured

On a cold evening under lights Newmarket on Fergus travelled to Sixmilebridge to play their first game in 7 weeks v’s Kilmaley who played in the Munster Intermediate final last weekend which ended up in extra time and a 1 point heart breaking defeat to Cork’s Kanturk.


The Blues got out of the traps from the throw in and lead from the start going 0-03 to no score unanswered. Points from Eoin Hayes, James McInerney (F) and Colin Ryan (F). Kilmaley got their opening score after 6 minutes but that was cancelled out by a Goal from Ronan Goode.  3 more points from the stick of Colin Ryan 1 free, 2 65″, with Mikey McInerney, Eoin Hayes and Stephen Kelly on the half time whistle to bring the score to 1-11 to 0-03.

In the 2nd half Ryan again was clinical with 2 early frees in the 4th and 5th minutes and a lovely point from play from a tight angle and then another 2 frees on 15 th and 18th minute. Martin Frawley came off the bench to split the posts. The final point for the Blues again from the Stick of Ryan from play to leave the final score Newmarket on Fergus 1-18 Kilmaley 0-09.

An overall very solid display with defence holding up strong and chances taken, Eoin Hayes and Colin Ryan stood out over the 60+ minutes. Fair play to the Blues went along to support, one more day out in 2017 to support, be there!
