Juniors v Crossmolina – Match Report
Davitts defeated Crossmolina by 2-8 to 2-4 in a well contested Senior League Div 4 game played in Ballindine on Sunday.
Crossmolina had led by 1-3 to 0-4 at the break but Davitts inspired by the outstanding James Cummins, John Costello, Jordan Flanagan, William Freeley, Niall Kearns and Shane Treacy began to gain the upperhand in the second half and a Shane Treacy goal, created by some excellent play from Jordan Flanagan, Cian Naughton and Liam Noone, swung the game in the homeside’s favour.
