U12 Go games begin.

At a well appointed Muckalee pitch St Martins U12s Dearg Team played their first go game on Thursday evening 25th July last against Barrow Rangers. The large attendance of family and friends were treated to an entertaining game. The first half was even enough and some good saves from Joe Reid and clearances from his defence in from of him Shane O’Neill Mathew Shortall and Tommy Butler kept Barrow Rangers at bay.  Eventually St Martins midfield powered into the game and took control. With the constant supply of ball into the forwards the scores started to come. With goals from Shane Fahey, James Carrigan, Thomas Lawlor and Justin Manning. Points added from Conor Mulhll, Harry Kealy and Donal Coughlan, St Martins were well in control.The young saints hadn’t it all their own way at the start of the second half and Barrow Rangers piled on the pressure but good play from Justin Manning and Darragh Coughlan kept ball repelled and second half goalie Andrew Buggy made two good saves. Then a great run by Donal Coughlan ended up in a goal for St Martins. From the puck out a good move was finished to the net by Harry Kealy and from here on St Martins scored some fine points and finished the game well. The team play, skill, work rate, covering back and score taking was exceptional from these young hurlers.
