Minors hang in for draw in League Semi final

A number of wides cost St Martins as they were unlucky to draw in this Minor League semi final.

Having played against the breeze the Saints would have being confident of turning things around trailing 0-6 to 0-4 at the break.

Instead Dunamaggin gained a 0-8 to 0-6 lead in the middle of the second half where ‘Martins shooting was an issue.

A number of switches saw St Martins take the lead which they held until the dying embers of the game when Dunamaggin fired over a disputed free.

Unfortunately the young saints were to suffer a further blow when Shane Dowlings injuries suffered on the field proved to be far more serious after being taken off.
