St. Martin’s sec­ond goal of the sea­son came af­ter Ian Reger’s free kick from 50 yards out eight min­utes into the sec­ond half.

“I saw the keeper com­ing out be­hind me and I just flicked it on and it hit the back of the net,” St. Martin said.

The ju­nior de­fender must have ab­sorbed the half­time words of his fa­ther, Gaels coach Mike St. Martin.

“We talked about it at half­time: It doesn’t have to be a lot of the ball, it just has to be some­thing to re­di­rect it,” Mike St. Martin said. “Some­times half­time speeches work and some­times you look good and some­times you don’t.”

Calvert Hall stepped up the pres­sure in the sec­ond half, with the best chance com­ing on a hard shot from 7 yards out by Brady O’Con­nor with 9:36 left, but that was saved by goalie Nick DeShong.

“My four backs never came out of the game,” St. Martin said.

Calvert Hall coach Rick Zinkand knew his at­tack needed to fin­ish.

“We got a lit­tle frus­trated, but these games turn out to who makes the plays,” Zinkand said. “St. Joe made a play and we just didn’t get one to­day.

“Weknew they were a good team com­ing in and it’s al­ways a tough place to play. We just didn’t cap­i­tal­ize on a cou­ple chances to­day.”
