THE Newmarket under-21 girls produced another exciting game of football against Glanmire in Killavullen in the county semi-final on Wednesday last.
Glanmire came into the game as strong favourites but the Newmarket girls played some excellent football and were ahead by the narrow margin of two points at the interval.
The second half continued to thrill the attendance with both sides battling for supremacy and ended in a draw at full time on the scoreline of Newmarket 3-6 to Glanmire 2-9.
