the game giving Newmarket a comfortable win of 2-13 to 2-2.
The fitness and determination of both sides gave us a fantastic display of

Douglas kept the pressure up until the last minute but the effortless team
work by the Newmarket team made them worthy winners.
Four substitutions were made throughout the game. Marika Cottrell came onto the forward line in the last minutes of the first half. Honor O'Flynn, Karen Field and Moira O'Keeffe came in during the second half.
