Minor hurlers show signs of improvement

St Martins Minors began their championship preparations mixing the good & the bad in a 60 minute performance that was hard to asses.

For the first half they played against the wind and put together some smart moves that saw them lead 2-7 to 0-7 at the break.

After the break the home side seemed to be motoring when they tacked on a goal a few points but again they faded as is the norm with this team. After giving away numerous frees & showing some ill discipline they let the village back into the game with some sloppy defending leaking two goals.

On the plus side their attack looked much slicker than in previous matches but a lot of work needs to be done ahead of the first round of the championship on September 14th.

Final score;  St Martins 3-18 2-8 James Stephens B
