Seniors v Ballintubber – Match Report

Davitts 0-6  Ballintubber 1-16

Ballintubber showed why they are one of the strongest teams in the county, or even the province, with a clinical display in Ballindine in the Senior League Div 1A on Saturday evening. With both squads operating without a number of first team regulars, the strength and intensity of the Ballintubber lads was very impressive, as they brushed aside the home team’s challenge with ease.

Ballintubber lead by 1-5 to 0-3 at halftime after a reasonably well fought first half. Davitts scorers were Thomas Waldron, Ronan McNamara and Keith Prendergast.

Ballintubber completely dominated the second half, despite the best efforts of Keith Prendergast (Davitts best player), Padraig Mangan, Ronan McNamara, Colm Roche, Cathal Higgins and subs Sean Waldron and Brian Clarke.

Points from Aidan McTigue (2) and Darren Connolly completed the Davitts tally on a night when even the most diehard supporter, of which we have many, would have to admit that we weren’t ever really at the races.

Davitts: Adrian McNamara, Donal Ronayne, Cathal Higgins, Colm Roche, Keith Prendergast (0-1), Padraig Mangan, Martin Cosgrove, Ronan McNamara (0-1), Michael Waldron, Seamus Roche, Thomas Waldron (0-1), Liam Kearns, Aidan McTigue (0-2), Fearghal McGrath, Darren Connolly (0-1). Subs used: Brian Clarke, Michael Mangan, Johnno Clarke and William Freeley.

Davitts capture South Mayo Junior A Title for second successive year

2014 South Mayo Junior A Winners

Davitts 0-10 Claremorris1-6

Davitts produced a second half display full of determination and quality to secure an unlikely victory over neighbours Claremorris in the South Mayo Junior A Final played in Hollymount on Tuesday evening. Davitts, the holders, had to play second fiddle to a very impressive looking Claremorris outfit for most of the first half, and were lucky to be trailing by only one point at the break, 1-3 to 0-5, after playing with the advantage of the stiff wind. Davitts came out fired up in the second half and their display was a credit to their battling qualities as they etched out a famous victory, securing the title for only the third time.

Claremorris had raced into a three point lead after ten minutes before a David McDonagh point from long range settled the Davitts team down. Another McDonagh point and one from Darren Connolly had the sides level before Claremorris struck a scrambled goal. Davitts replied with two fine points from team captain Shane Mitchell and Clive Hennigan to narrow the gap to a point at halftime.

Davitts were a completely different team in the second half and they played with a ferocious intensity that unsettled Claremorris. The very impressive Darren Connolly began to terrorise the Claremorris defence and points from him and David McDonagh lifted the Davitts team and their large support. Connolly added two more points and Clive Hennigan bagged a beauty before the finish as Davitts earned a famous victory over their big rivals.

While all the players played their part in this win, the performances of man of the match Brian Clarke, Frankie Barrett, Sean Waldron, William Freeley, David McDonagh, Darren Connolly, Shane Treacy and the inspirational John Costello were particularly noteworthy.

Davitts team: David Mitchell, Brian Clarke, Frankie Barrett, Lawrence Daly, James Cummins, Michael Ronayne, JP Kirrane, Sean Waldron, William Freeley, Michael Mangan, David McDonagh (0-3), Clive Hennigan (0-2), Darren Connolly (0-4), Shane Mitchell (0-1), Shane Treacy.

Subs used: Liam Noone, John Costello, Johnno Clarke, Tommy Clarke.

Juniors v Belmullet – Match Report

Belmullet 1-8 to | Davitts 0-10

Davitts Junior Team made the long trek to Belmullet on Friday evening and went away disappointed after a 1-8 to 0-10 defeat in the County B Championship. The two sides were very evenly matched but the standard of reffing left a lot to be desired. Both Belmullet and Davitts were left scratching their heads with many of his decisions but in the end it won’t bother the winners as they gained the two valuable points.

There was little to separate the teams from the word go but a Belmullet goal, fifteen minutes into the game, after some very hesitant defending by Davitts, proved to be the crucial score. They led by 1-4 to 0-6 at the break with JP Kirrane, Clive Hennigan, Liam Noone (2) and Darren Connolly (2) the Davitts scorers. Indeed Connolly was proving a real thorn for the homeside and was repeatedly fouled when he got the ball (some of them punished by the awarding of a free).

In the second half the two committed teams fought hard in the greasy conditions but both teams were reduced to thirteen players by the end with the card happy ref becoming the most influential figure on the field.

Davitts had points from Johnno Clarke, William Freeley and Darren Connolly (2) but Belmullet held on in the frantic closing minutes to claim victory.

Best for Davitts were Brian Clarke, John Costello, Michael Ronayne, William Freeley, Darren Connolly, Shane Treacy and Frankie Barrett.

Davitts: David Mitchell, Brian Clarke, John Costello, Lawrence Daly, Michael Mangan, Michael Ronayne, James Cummins, Sean Waldron, William Freeley (0-1), JP Kirrane (0-1), Johnno Clarke (0-1), Liam Noone (0-2), Darren Connolly (0-4), Clive Hennigan (0-1), Shane Treacy. Subs used: Frankie Barrett, David McDonagh, Shane Mitchell, Patrick Keadin.

U-14’s capture South Mayo U-14 ‘A’ Title

Davitts 2-9 | Claremorris 1-7

Davitts captured the South Mayo U-14 A Title with a hard fought but well deserved victory over Claremorris in Hollymount on Thursday evening. Claremorris opened the scoring with a point but a cracking Niall Kearns goal settled his side’s early nerves. The exchanges were tight throughout the first half but Davitts went in 1-4 to 0-3 ahead at halftime. Jordan Flanagan, Stephen Nyland, Shane Waldron and Dimitri Trench were Davitts pointscorers.

Claremorris came out with all guns blazing in the second half and and an early goal and point had them level after two minutes and when they took the lead a few minutes later it looked bleak for Davitts. They showed great bottle however and Stephen Nyland goaled after great work by Flanagan and Niall Treacy to put them ahead again. They added points from Flanagan, Shane Waldron, David Devane and a Nyland brace to run out winners after a very entertaining contest.

Davitts had heroes throughout the field with goalie James Quinn, Cian Naughton, Takeshi Kilkenny, Dimitri Trench (0-1), David Devane (0-1), Niall Kearns (1-0), Shane Waldron (0-2), Jordan Flanagan (0-2), Niall Treacy and Stephen Nyland (1-3) all excelling. Oisin O Connor, Gary Bourke, Shane Cummins, Colin Mulligan and Daniel Corless put in solid shifts helped by subs Conor Walsh, Jason Huane, Zack Keadin and Aidan Cosgrove.

Well done to all the lads and their managers John Treacy, Anthony Hennelly, Brendan Kilkenny, Fergal Tuohy, Derek Byrne and Peter Kearns.
