Seniors v Westport–League Div 2 – Match Report
Westport proved too strong for Davitts when the two sides met in Div 2 of the Senior League in Westport on Saturday evening.
The home side got off to a flyer and shot five excellent points in the first ten minutes of the game, before Josh Ronayne got Davitts on the board. Davitts chances were lessened when Andrew Peters, their lively centre forward, had to retire after receiving a heavy knock to the head. Josh Ronayne picked off another point in the 16th minute to narrow the gap to three points but Westport finished the half strongly to lead by 0-10 to 0-2 at half time.
Whatever chance Davitts of getting back into the game evaporated when Westport goaled two minutes into the second half. The Davitts players fought manfully to the end and added points from Josh Ronayne (2) and Michael Conroy as Westport added on five more points before the end, to win easily.
