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.
