Seniors v Swinford – Match Report
Davitts Senior’s hosted a Swinford side in Div 3 of the Senior League on Saturday with the visitors bagging the two league points winning by 3-9 to 1-7. Swinford were by far the better team and deserved their win that eases their relegation worries.
Davitts had the wind assisting them in the first half and the sides went in level at half time, Davitts 1-5 Swinford 2-2. William Freeley scored the Davitts goal with Ronan McNamara (4) and Aidan McTigue the pointscorers. Swinford took the lead with a first minute point in the second half and in truth they never looked like losing afterwards as they played with great vigour until the finish.
Davitts will need a substantial improvement next week when they face Ballaghaderreen in the Senior Championship Quarter-Final. On this occasion only Ciaran Fahy, Tommy Waldron, Ronan McNamara and Cathal Hennelly, when introduced, played anything like they are capable of.
Davitts: Cian Naughton, Kevin Gallagher, Cathal Higgins, Ciaran Fahy, Brian Clarke, Padraig Mangan, William Freeley (1-0), Daniel Huane, Mark Ronayne, Darragh McGale, Jack Ronayne, Tommy Waldron, Aidan McTigue (0-2), Ronan McNamara (0-5).
