St. Martin’s Minor get their second football win

With a good spirit in the squad, Rower Inistioge were our next obstacle in the Rionn A football league. Settling well we pointed after 5 minutes with good team play. A Rower Inistioge attack saw them goal after a long ball was deflected to our net. We responded well to dominate possession and added 2 further points to lead the half time score level 3 pts to 1 goal. St. Martin’s started the second half with a great run from midfield to goal after 3 minutes. With the lions share of scoreable chances adding 3 more points we went into the last quarter 6 points up. Rower Inistioge we’re not finished yet and put a goal and 2 on the board to leave just 1 point in it. St. Martin’s gaoled again with 2 points in reply to leave 2 pts in it heading into injury time. St. Martin’s finished the scoring with a well taken point to win on a score of St. Martin’s 2-7 Rower Inistioge 2-4.
