Last Week’s – Match Reports
The minor team recorded their second league win with a comfortable 1-14 to 1-6 victory over Tourmakeady on Friday evening. A well taken goal by substitute Clive Hennigan, making a welcome reappearance to the club colours after a long absense through injury, sealed the victory in the last few minutes, while Darren Connolly, another sub on the comeback trail from injury also impressed scoring two fine points. Others to star for Davitts were Gerard McWalter, Donal and Mark Ronayne, James Prendergast, midfielder Michael Waldron (0-2), Josh Ronayne (0-9) and Tommy Clarke (0-1).
The U-14 team bounced back from a hefty first round defeat by Ballinrobe, to gain their first brace of league points, with a comprehensive 8-14 to 2-1 victory over Louisburgh in Ballindine on Thursday evening. Davitts dominated throughout with Michael and Padraig Mangan, Mikey Devane, Sean Burke, Dylan Keadin and Jack Rodgers in top form.
The second team rounded off a great week for the club, defeating The Neale in Cong, 1-7 to 0-8 in Division 1F of the senior league. This makes it three wins from three outings for John A Noone’s exciting young side. Davitts ability to take their scores was the difference between two well matched sides. Young Michael Waldron, Colm Roche and James Cummins were outstanding in defence, Tommy Mitchell and John Heneghan did very well at midfield, while up front Kevin Connolly was in terrific form along with the livewire Richie Kilkenny.
