Martins bow out

St. Martins bowed out of the Junior A championship after a top class effort against a good Emeralds side. Played in Freshford, Emeralds started well but an improving Martins got right back in the game with a goal from a ninty meter free by Stephen had the sides level at the break,1-8 to 2-5.The second half was a rousing battle with the lead changing many times with goals from Kieran and Michael,  but it was a late goal that turned the game in Emeralds favour. Martins had a great spread of scorers on the night, in a good overall performance. Final score 4-10 to 3-9.
