Minors gain win in the sun

With the return of a number players from injury St Martins gained their first win of the year when they defeated Clara.

The game was played in sweltering conditions and was tied after the first ten minutes 0-2 a piece.

A goal after 15 minutes was followed by a couple of pints on the trot which set ‘Martins up nicely at half time to lead 1-8 to 0-6.

Clara hit a goal from a ’21 and the game tightened as a result but the young Saints made better use of their scoring chances to win 2-12 to 1-9.

Credit to both sides for playing in such extreme conditions.

St Martins: Jason Shore, Conor Dowling, Alan Kelly, Loughlin Hogan, Richard Teehan, Patrick Brennan, David Walsh, Donal Shore, Shane Kinsella, Mark Cody, Robert Reid, Finn Dowling, Adrian Farrell (Capt), Shane Dowling, Colm O’Neill.

Subs: Mark Dowling, John Joe Kelly, Tommy Quirke, Steven Walsh, William Trousdell (All used), Damien Egan, Aidan Egan, Ronan Tynan, Tommy Downey, Sean Maher, Eoin Murphy. Brandon Sheehan (injured)
