Davitts Junior team turned on the style in Kilmaine on Wednesday evening, defeating the locals by 3-23 to 1-7 in the South Mayo Championship. Davitts took full advantage of the wind that assisted them in the first half and led by 2-16 to 0-2 after a sparkling display of attacking football. The goals were finished by Paul Carey and Matthew Trench, after sweeping moves, as those two players, Seamus Roche, Gerald Griffin and Shane Treacy terrorised the Kilmaine defence.
Kilmaine fought hard in the second half but could not close the gap and a third Davitts goal from captain Lawrence Daly, after another impressive passing move, completely finished off the game with ten minutes remaining. As well as Lawrence Daly, defenders Brian Clarke, Martin Cosgrove, JP Kirrane and Tommy Clarke (2) all got their names on the scoresheet in the second half.
This was another great team display with Brian Clarke, William Freeley, Shane Mitchell, Seamus Roche, Paul Carey, Matthew Trench, Shane Treacy and Tommy Clarke all starring.
