Davitts U-15 team qualified for the County Division 2 League Final, by defeating Naoimh Phadraig, 1-13 to 1-8, in an entertaining semi-final played in Ballindine on Sunday morning. Davitts started brightly with early points from the impressive Liam Noone and Michael Clarke, before Noone netted in the 8th minute after excellent work by Matthew Trench. Naoimh Phadraig began to get to grips at midfield and were the better team for the remainder of the first half but points from Noone, Trench, Clarke and team captain Thomas Waldron left Davitts ahead, 1-6 to 0-5 at the interval.
Davitts controlled the game well in the second half with man of the match Donie Ronayne, now operating at midfield, in unstoppable form, and qualified for a mouth watering final clash against neighbours Carras (Garrymore and Kilmaine) next weekend. Davitts stars in this good win were William Freeley, John Huane, Jack Rodgers, Matthew Trench, top scorer Liam Noone, Michael Clarke, Thomas Waldron, Cathal Hennelly and the superb Donie Ronayne.
