Davitts earned a third league victory in a row in Div 1E on Saturday evening in Swinford, defeating the homeside by 1-15 to 1-11, after a very hard fought game. Davitts played with the strong wind in the first half but Swinford played the better football and led by 1-6 to 0-6 with eight minutes remaining in that first half. Davitts hit four unanswered points via Josh Ronayne (2), Seamus Roche and David McDonagh to secure a slender one point halftime lead.
Swinford started the second half brightly and led by a point after five minutes before Davitts took the game by the scruff of the neck and, thanks to the promptings of Michael Ronayne, Mark Ronayne, Tommy Nolan, James Cummins, Michael Waldron, Seamus Roche, Josh Ronayne, Carlos O Gara and Liam Kearns, finished the game strongly to gain another deserved win.
