Davitts minor team advanced to the next round of the county C championship, when making hard work of defeating an understrength Parke team in Parke on Friday evening. Davitts, playing into the breeze in the opening half, trailed the homeside by 1-3 to 0-5 at half time, with only county under 16 player Mark Ronayne playing with urgency, and things were looking very bleak for the Davitts lads. Davitts however, showing a much better attitude, completely dominated the second half, with midfielders Michael Waldron and Josh Ronayne lording it, and they steadily pulled away from their hosts, to win by 2-16 to 2-6.
A big improvement will be required if Davitts are to advance any further in this competition. Best for Davitts were David Mitchell, Mark Ronayne, Dara Halligan, Josh Ronayne, Michael Waldron, Clive Hennigan and subs Jason Connolly and James Prendergast.
Davitts team: David Mitchell, Tommy Ruddock, Tommy Heneghan, Mark Ronayne (0-1), Dara Halligan, Michael Waldron (0-2), Josh Ronayne (2-7), David Hyland (0-1), Clive Hennigan (0-1), Darren Connolly (0-2), Tommy Clarke (0-2). Subs used: Jason Connolly and James Prendergast.
