ST. MARTIN'S lifted the Under-14 Premier league trophy when they overcame Oulart-The Ballagh in an exciting game played in ideal conditions in Farmleigh.

There was very little between the teams in the first-half and St. Martin's went in with a two-point lead at the break (1-4 to 1-2).

Lettie Whelan opened their account with a fifth-minue point before Aoife Dunne levelled from a free.

Whelan restored the lead, but a Rebecca O'Sullivan goal left Oulart-The Ballagh ahead by 1-1 to 0-2 after 16 minutes.

Lettie Whelan replied instantly with a goal and also added the last point of the half after Aoife Dunne and Ella O'Connor had swapped scores in between.

A Ciara O'Connor goal further boosted the saints on the re-start before Rachel Sinnott netted at the other end.

Lettie Whelan added another goal with Sinnott hitting a point in response before Karen O'Neill goaled again for the leaders.

St. Martin's pulled away with a goal from Ciara O'Connor and points from Lettie Whelan and Emma Codd, with Anais Curran hitting a consolation point for the losers.

Team captain Tara Doyle accepted the trophy on behalf of St. Martin's from Rose Breen, Co. Treasurer (pictured).
