Junior A’s bow out.

St. Martin’s and Emeralds lined out against each other in the North Junior A Championship this evening.  In a poorly attended St. Lachtain’s Park, it was the Emeralds that got out of the trap first and went into a 1-4 lead.  St. Martin’s took some time to get settled but once they had, they took their scoring chances as they came and lead at half time by a solitary point 0-11 to Emeralds 1-7.  In the second half, Emeralds came back with a vengeance but St. Martin’s kept them at bay courtesy of 1-1 from David Breen and points from Shane Kinsella and Donal Shore.  However, with the loss of Aidan Lawlor through injury, Emeralds pulled away to secure the game and leave St. Martin’s looking down the tracks at a Relegation final.  Final score Emeralds 1-17, St. Martin’s 1-14.
