U-16s v Burrishoole – Match Report
Davitts and Burrishoole played out a very entertaining U-16 Division 3 League match in Ballindine on Sunday with Davitts just edging it, 3-9 to 3-8. Burrishoole, playing into the wind, got off to a flying start and they led by 1-3 to 0-1 after ten minutes. This could have got much worse for the homeside but for a string of excellent saves by goalie Shane Cummins.
