U-16 Football Championship Semi Final v Rower Inistoige

After a good performance in the previous round we headed to Inistoige knowing we had every chance against a fancied Rower Inistoige side. Due to a mix up with the refferee the game started thirty minutes late. St. Martins lads kept focused and settled quickly into the game with a goal and two points on the board in the first ten minutes. The Rower added two points before we got another goal after creating a lot of chances.Rower Inistoige got a goal five minutes before half time leaving the score St. Martins 2-4 Rower Inistoige 1-2 ahead. Still all to play for our backs came under serious pressure early in the second half but held tough and with the midfield and fordwards making life hard for Rower Inistoige we added 1-5 to win on a scoreline of St. Martins 3-9 to Rower Inistoige 1-2.
