Lawlor inspires Junior’s

On a cold, showery evening in Coon, St. Martin’s and Erins Own finished all square in the J.J Kavanagh & Son’s Junior Hurling League after a well contested battle between neighbours.  It was Erins Own who excelled in the first half despite the best efforts of our backs with the excellent Aidan Lawlor and Mick Morrissey joining forces with Brian Cadigan, Aidan Murphy, Shane Egan and Paddy Dowling.  With the score at half time of Erins Own 0-10 to St. Martin’s 0-4, our Juniors had a big mountain to climb in the second half.  With Thomas Walsh and Ciaran Brennan feeding in the ball from mid-field, our forwards of Eugene Maher, Noel D’arcy, Kieran Kelly, Damien Tynan, Martin Dowling and John Haughney chipped away creating and taking scores.  However, the breakthrough came when Paddy Dowling landed a high ball into the square with Damien Tynan flicking it passed Davy Buggy the Erins Own goalkeeper.  With a minute left on the clock and one point between the sides, St. Martin’s were awarded a free which Kieran Kelly duely put over the bar to leave the final score St. Martin’s 1-10, Erins Own 0-13.
