U-14’s v Ballaghaderreen – Match Report
All credit to the U-14 teams of Davitts and Ballaghaderreen, who served up an exciting league game in desperate conditions in Ballindine on Thursday evening. Davitts withstood a late surge by Ballaghaderreen to win by 1-14 to 2-8 although Davitts keeper Caolan Mullee had to make a splendid save in the last minute to ensure the victory.
Davitts had led by 0-8 to 0-3 at halftime with outstanding midfielder Evan Ronayne (0-6), Jack Ronayne (0-1) and Daniel Huane (0-1) the scorers. At the back Ciaran Fahy, Aidan Macken, Cathal Moran and Ciaran Waldron were in top form, while Evan Ronayne and Jamie Mullee were playing very well at midfield.
Daniel Huane, an exciting prospect, scored the Davitts goal midway through the second half, reacting quickest to a rebound, to give the Ballagh keeper no chance. Ballaghaderreen fought back well but Davitts deservedly hung on in those nailbiting last few minutes.
As well as those mentioned earlier, Davitts had good performances from Francis Griffin, John Kilkenny, Cian Naughton, Cian Treacy, Andrei Trench, Ryan McLoughlin and Liam Macken.
