Kiltimagh v Davitts – Senior League Div 1B
An understrength Davitts team were defeated, 1-9 to 1-6, away to a Kiltimagh side who needed a result to ensure their Div 1B safety, in the final round of the league on Saturday. Davitts, comfortable in mid-table, but also keen to avenge their championship quarter-final defeat, were always struggling against their hosts, and trailed by 1-4 to 0-3 at halftime, the goal looking very suspiciously like a square ball but in all fairness the Davitts woodwork had been tested on a number of occasions by the Kiltimagh attack.
Davitts began to make things a bit edgy in the Kiltimagh camp in the second half, getting on top at midfield through Ronan McNamara and John Heneghan, and an excellent goal by Liam Kearns with ten minutes remaining left the game in the balance, but the homeside held on deservedly for a three point victory. As well as those mentioned earlier, Davitts had excellent performances from Mark Diskin, an agile goalkeeper, Luke Ronayne, Frankie Barrett, Johnno Clarke, James Cummins, Colm Roche, Michael Conroy and the lively Aidan McTigue.
Davitts: Mark Diskin, Tommy Nolan, Luke Ronayne, Laurence Daly, Johnno Clarke, James Cummins, Ronan McNamara (0-1), John Heneghan, Liam Kearns (1-2), Keith Prendergast, Colm Roche, Aidan McTigue (0-2), David McDonagh, Michael Conroy (0-1).
