St. Martins claim Roinn B league after fine win

St Martins put in a fine team performance to overcome Young Irelands in the Minor Roinn B league final on a scoreline of 2-16 to 0-14 in Gowran on Sunday.

The winners started brightly with a good score from Josh Dempsey that was followed shortly afterwards by a goal from Tristan Roche after a good team move. Young Irelands settled into the game with two frees from Patrick Brennan before the teams traded points over the following ten minutes.

Young Irelands had a good patch in the middle of the half which saw Padraig Naddy, Patrick Brennan, Conor Fitzpatrick and wing back Patrick Langton add to their tally to see them lead by a point for the first time having also missed out on some goal chances.

St. Martins finished the half strongly with Josh Dempsey, Tristan Roche and Russell Kealy scoring to see them lead at a half time on a scoreline of 1-07 to 0-9.

The winners started the second half strongly with the aid of the breeze and they extended their lead to four points through Thomas Lawlor, Joe Reid and Josh Dempsey. They built further on this lead when Joe Reid finished to the net to give them a seven point cushion.

Young Irelands kept in touch through frees but some fine saves by St. Martins goalie Oisin Kelly from a penalty and a number of other efforts ensured that Young Irelands couldn’t bridge the gap in the closing stages.

The teams traded points near the end of the game with St Martins running out deserving winners with a fine team display.
