Minors v Kiltimagh – Match Report

Davitts minor team retained the top spot in Div 2 of the League after a hard fought 3-6 to 1-8 victory over Kiltimagh in Kiltimagh on Friday evening. Davitts, minus the services of injured county minor Liam Noone, showed real battling qualities to see off their opponents in a game that really could have gone either way.

Davitts led by a point at the break, 1-3 to 1-2, the goal coming from midfielder Thomas Waldron, burying the rebound after his penalty kick was saved by the Kiltimagh keeper. Kiltimagh though, were the more impressive team in that first half and would have been leading but for some very poor shooting.

Like the first half, the exchanges were very competitive in the second period and it looked like the homeside were edging towards victory but the Davitts lads displayed admirable spirit and two late goals from Jack Rodgers and Gerald Griffin swung the game in their favour.

A great team display by Davitts but special mention must go to Dylan Keadin, Donal Ronayne, Jack Rodgers, Thomas Waldron, William Freeley and man of the match Matthew Trench who ran himself to a standstill in his first game back after injury.

Davitts team: Michael Mangan, Dylan Keadin, Donal Ronayne, Dylan Higgins, Jack Rodgers (1-0), Padraig Mangan, John Huane, Thomas Waldron (1-3), William Freeley, Patrick Keadin, Cathal Hennelly, Evan Ronayne (0-2), Gerald Griffin (1-0), Michael Clarke (0-1), Matthew Trench. Subs used: Richie O Connor, Liam Connolly.

Minors v Ballinrobe – Match Report

The large number of Davitts supporters who decided to forsake Coronation Street and Eastenders on Monday evening to attend the Minor League Div 2 game against Ballinrobe, were rewarded with a superb performance from the homeside in Ballindine. Davitts won by 0-15 to 0-4 in a game played in atrocious conditions.

Davitts, wind assisted in the first half raced into a 0-10 to 0-1 lead by halftime. The entire forwardline were very impressive and all of them registered scores in the opening period as well as the very influential midfielder Thomas Waldron. The Davitts defence withstood everything that the visitors threw at them in the second half and scored five further points via Evan Ronayne (2), Cathal Hennelly, Thomas Waldron and Gerald Griffin.

Michael Mangan was a very reliable goalie and in front of him Dylan Keadin and Donal Ronayne were magnificent in the corner back positions. Jack Rodgers, Padraig Mangan and John Huane formed a solid half back line. Thomas Waldron and William Freeley worked extremely hard at midfield and the forwardline linked well and took their chances when they came.

Davitts: Michael Mangan, Dylan Keadin, Donal Ronayne, Jack Rodgers, Padraig Mangan, John Huane, Thomas Waldron (0-2), William Freeley, Cathal Hennelly (0-3), Michael Clarke (0-3), Evan Ronayne (0-4), Liam Noone (0-1), Gerald Griffin (0-2). Subs used: Patrick Keadin, Richie O Connor, Jonathon Fahy.
