Fenians advance

St. Martins lost out the Fenians of Johnstown in the quarter final of the U 21 Championship. Fenians had most of the play in the opening half but a long range free from Brian Byrne was finished to the net by Ruari Kinsella in added time to leave the score 2-10 to 1-7. Martins upped their game in the second half and a goal from Thomas Breen after some good team work left just two points in it with five minutes remaining. That was as close as Martins got and it was the Fenians who advance to the next round. Final score 2-15 to 2-12.
