Davitts U-15 team had two good league victories in the last week. Last Sunday they recorded a 2-9 to 1-5 win, away to Crossmolina. Davitts always held the upper hand in this physical encounter and had great performances from Tommy Charles, Padraig Mangan, Thomas Waldron, William Freeley , Matthew Trench and Donie Ronayne.
They followed that up with a 3-16 to 1-2 defeat of Kilmeena, in Kilmeena, not winning as convincingly as the scoreline suggests. Tommy Waldron was superb in this game and got great assistance from Shane Cummins (who scored 2-3), Padraig Mangan, Johnny Huane, Donie Ronayne and William Freeley.
Meanwhile the junior team put up a brave fight before being defeated 4-10 to 3-6 by Carramore in the South Mayo junior B championship. Davitts had star players in midfielders John Heneghan and Tommy Mitchell, Michael Waldron, Mark Ronayne and the energetic JP Kirrane in defence and up front Pat Hopkins (scorer of a fantastic goal), the prolific Con Penny and John Paul Clarke, while substitutes Seamus Roche and Tommy Heneghan also did well when introduced.
