Juniors v Crossmolina – Match Report
Davitts Juniors took on Crossmolina in their final Division 1D league game in Ballindine on Sunday but they were defeated, 4-15 to 3-10 after an entertaining match. The game marked the return of Mark Ronayne after a long absence with a knee injury and he aquitted himself well. There also were first starts for Kelan Cosgrove and Liam Macken and they didn’t look out of place at this level. Daniel Huane, fresh from his County Senior Hurling victory for Tooreen, played a fine match at wing back.
Aidan McTigue, Shane Treacy and Josh Ronayne scored the three goals while Patrick Keadin played his first game in goals, and probably his last.
Crossmolina led by 1-8 to 1-3 at half time and were the sharper team throughout as some of the Davitts players struggled with the difficult underfoot conditions while others made sure the waterboys had a busy afternoon.
Davitts best performers were Gerard McWalter, Tom Corless, William Freeley, up to his retiral with a leg injury, Aidan McTigue, Ryan McLoughlin and his uncle Seamus Roche.
