Byrne Cup 5th Round

St. Martin’s took on Erin’s Own in the 5th round of the Byrne Cup in Canon Kearns Park this evening.  On a miserable evening with torrential rain, the weather didn’t do either side any favours as both teams struggled to gain scores early on.  A  four goal blitz in a ten minute spell for the home side saw St. Martin’s chasing at half time with a score of 1-4 to Erin’s Own 4-3.  The second half did not improve for the visitors as they missed goal chances, however, the backs did work hard to hold the Comer forwards. Final score: St. Martin’s 1-9 Erin’s Own 4-8.
