Junior Championship Round 2

After playing three games to get through the first round, St. Martin’s bowed out of the J.J Kavanagh and Sons Junior Hurling Championship.  Played in typical October weather in the Polo Grounds, Jenkinstown. With the aid of a stiff breeze,  James Stephen’s raced ahead and lead by 1-12 to 0-2 at half time with Martin’s two points coming from converted free’s by Shane Kinsella.  The second half didn’t see much of an improvement for St. Martin’s.  James Stephen’s bagged themselves another goal shortly after half time.  Even though Luke Maher got a goal back for his side, the damage was already done as James Stephen’s ran out convincing winners on a scoreline of 2-19 to St. Martin’s 1-6.
