Seniors v Ballina – Match Report

Ballina 0-12 Davitts 0-6

An under strength Davitts Senior team travelled to Ballina on Sunday and were defeated by the locals by six points in the Michael Walsh Senior League.

Some wayward shooting didn’t help Davitts cause in the first half and Ballina raced into a five point lead before Liam Noone and the very impressive Andrew Peters pointed for Davitts. Ballina added another point before the break to lead by 0-6 to 0-2 at halftime.

Points from Liam Noone (2) and Ronan McNamara narrowed the gap to the minimum as Davitts enjoyed a purple patch early in the second half. Ballina responded well though and shot six unanswered points before Patrick Keadin kicked the last point of the game.

Davitts had very good performances from Adrian McNamara, Brian Clarke, Cathal Higgins, Ronan McNamara, Andrew Peters, Shane Treacy, Jamie Mullee and Liam Noone.

Davitts: Adrian McNamara, Brian Clarke, Colm Roche, Kevin Gallagher, Patrick Keadin (0-1), Cathal Higgins, Micheal Mangan, Ronan McNamara (0-1), Johnno Clarke, Jamie Mullee, Andrew Peters (0-1), Shane Treacy, Matthew Trench, Liam Noone (0-3), Tommy Clarke. Subs used: JP Kirrane, John Kilkenny.

Seniors v Knockmore – Match Report

Davitts Seniors got their 2017 campaign underway on Sunday in Ballindine when they were defeated by last year’s County finalists Knockmore in the Michael Walsh League. Knockmore were the sharper looking side early on and two opportunist goals helped them to a 2-2 to 0-4 lead at halftime. Andrew Peters and Liam Kearns (3) got Davitts first half scores.

Knockmore extended their lead to seven points by the fifteenth minute of the second half but Davitts came storming back in the final quarter of the game. Points by Liam Kearns (2), Paul Carey (2) and Andrew Peters left a goal between the sides with the game entering injury time. Davitts did create some goal chances but Knockmore defended stoutly to take two hard earned league points back to North Mayo.

Best for Davitts were Colm Roche, Cathal Higgins, Ronan McNamara, Andrew Peters, Liam Kearns and Paul Carey.

Davitts: Adrian McNamara, Colm Roche, Cathal Higgins, Brian Clarke, Johnno Clarke, James Cummins, Padraig Mangan, Keith Prendergast, Ronan McNamara, Andrew Peters (0-2), Liam Kearns (0-5), Micheal Mangan, Shane Treacy, Paul Carey (0-2), Tommy Waldron. Subs used: Kevin Gallagher, Mattie Trench, Patrick Keadin, Sean Waldron, Tommy Clarke.
