Seniors go down to St. Martins.

St. Martins prove too strong for Senior hurlers in Wexford Park.

The Shelmalier senior hurlers took on St Martins in the second round of the championship and after a disappointing performance were beaten by 3-11 to 0-8. Most of the damage was done in the opening stages of the game when St. Martins raced to a 2-2 to no score after 12 minutes. The Shels recovered with points from Chris McGrath and Ibar Murphy, but St. Martins soon replied with a brace of points of their own. Further points from Alan Griffith and Ibar Murphy completed the Shels scoring in the half. The second half was a low scoring affair with Ibar Murphy and Colm Kehoe on the mark for the black and amber.
