Davitts v Shrule-Glencorrib – County U-21 B Championship
Davitts and Shrule-Glencorrib served up a thriller in the first round of the County U-21 B Championship in rainswept Ballindine on Tuesday evening, with the Davitts boys edging it on a 1-9 to 1-8 scoreline. Things didn’t look good for the homeside at halftime, the teams level 1-4 apiece after Davitts had played with the wind advantage in the first half, and with midfielder and team captain Keith Glynn unable to return to the action through injury, but the team put in a tremendous effort in the second half to shade it by the narrowest of margins.
Davitts had heroes throughout the field with goalie Paddy Kirrane in top form and in front of him Kevin Gallagher, Kieran Mooney, Laurence Daly and Mark Ronayne were inspirational in the second half. Michael Waldron and Shane Mitchell impressed at midfield while up front county minor Josh Ronayne was the games most influential player, getting good support from Keith Prendergast and Fergal McGrath.
Davitts: Paddy Kirrane, Kevin Gallagher, Kieran Mooney, Michael Waldron, Shane Mitchell, Keith Prendergast (0-4), Fergal McGrath (0-1), David Cosgrove, Richie Kilkenny, Josh Ronayne (1-4). Subs used: Mark Ronayne and Darren Connolly.
