Juniors v Breaffy – Match Report
Davitts run in the County Junior B Championship came to an end on Saturday evening in Kiltimagh when they were defeated, 2-11 to 0-11, by Breaffy after an entertaining game. Two early goals in either half was the difference between the two teams in this well fought Semi-Final.
Liam Noone opened the scoring with a fine point in the fifth minute but Breaffy replied quickly with a goal and two points. Breaffy were winning a lot of ball around the middle of the field but Davitts looked very sharp up front and points from Liam Noone (2), Darren Connolly (2), Shane Treacy, Seamus Roche and Evan Ronayne had Davitts trailing by 1-7 to 0-8 at halftime.
A second Breaffy goal ten minutes into the second half left Davitts reeling and good Breaffy defending and excellent work by their goalkeeper kept Davitts out. Second half points from Darren Connolly, Liam Noone and Gerald Griffin was all Davitts could manage but couldn’t get the goal they needed to get back into the game although Gerald Griffin and Evan Ronayne both came close.
While Davitts will be disappointed at losing, this young team have given their supporters plenty of good memories this year. All eighteen players that played gave their all in this game.
