Davitts travelled to Carramore to take on Hollymount Carramore in the South Mayo Junior Championship on Wednesday evening and won a thrilling contest by a single point, 2-15 to 2-14. Both teams played fast attacking football on a perfect evening for football.
Hollymount led by 1-9 to 1-7 at halftime with their attack in razor sharp form. Clive Hennigan, a thorn in the Holly Carra defence all evening, scored 1-3 in the first half, with Darren Connolly (0-3) and Tommy Clarke (0-1) accounting for the remainder of Davitts first half tally.
The game ebbed and flowed throughout an enthralling second half.
