Minors v Mayo Gaels – Match Report
Davitts minor team played host to Mayo Gaels on Tuesday evening and a strong second half performance earned them the victory after an entertaining game. A marvellous display of point scoring by Davitts captain Evan Ronayne, who bagged eleven points (nine from play), was a decisive factor towards the outcome of the game.
Mayo Gaels led by 1-2 to 0-1 after ten minutes and by 1-5 to 0-7 at the interval and in truth looked the more dangerous team in the first half.
Davitts began to get on top around midfield in the second half with John Kilkenny and Niall Kearns putting in strong shifts and Daniel Huane, Aidan Macken, Jack Ronayne and Dimitri Trench picking up an amount of breaking ball as the momentum switched to the homeside. Ciaran Fahy and Jordan Flanagan were superb in defence for the hosts but it took a late goal by Davitts sub Andrei Trench, who was on hand to flick Niall Kearns long delivery to the Gaels net, to clinch a deserved second league victory in a row for his side.
Davitts: Cian Naughton, Jordan Flanagan, Ciaran Fahy, Daniel Huane, Thomas Corless, Aidan Macken, John Kilkenny, Niall Kearns (0-1), Jack Ronayne (0-2), Dimitri Trench (0-1), Kelan Cosgrove, Evan Ronayne (0-11), Ryan McLoughlin. Subs used: Francis Griffin, Andrei Trench (1-0).
