U-14s v Hollymount Carramore – Match Report

Davitts U-14 team got their County Div 3A League campaign off to a winning start with a resounding 8-21 to 1-5 victory over Hollymount Carramore in Ballindine on Thursday. Most of the damage was done in the first half that saw Davitts leading by 6-14 to 0-2 at the break with powerful performances throughout the field.

The visitors performed much better in the second half but there was no catching the impressive Davitts lads on this occasion.

Tristan Diskin and Davey Hennessy shared the goalkeeping duties and both performed well. Ian Prendergast, Micheal Hett and Fionan Gallagher formed a solid full back line while outside them Cathal Corless (0-2), Thomas Ronayne and Brian Og McTigue (1-0) defended superbly. Fentan Kelly (1-4) and John Wallace (1-0) formed a strong midfield partnership. Up front the attack was led superbly by Jack Devane (1-5) with Joe Prendergast (1-3), Jack Melvin (0-3), Bon Glynn (0-1), Brian Bermingham (2-0) and Brian Eagney (1-1) all in top form on an evening when everything went right for Davitts. Ryan Rattigan, Cathal Devane (0-1), Jamie Raftery, Brian Hett and Fionn McLoughlin all played well when they were introduced over the course of the game.

Seniors v Kiltane – Match Report

Davitts hosted Kiltane in the Michael Walsh Senior League and were defeated by 4-15 to 2-12 after an entertaining game played in difficult conditions on Sunday. The game marked the return of Davitts forward Michael Conroy after a long absence due to injuries, and he showed up well while getting some much needed game time.

Kiltane played with the wind in the opening half and built up a 2-10 to 0-4 lead at the break with their forwards looking very sharp. Liam Kearns (2), Michael Conroy and Paul Carey were on target for Davitts.

Davitts started the second half well with a Keith Prendergast goal and points from sub Shane Treacy and Liam Kearns in the opening three minutes. A Kiltane goal in the 4th minute extended their lead but Davitts fought hard and were awarded a penalty which Liam Kearns converted. Kearns added two more points and Shane Treacy, Thomas Waldron, Ronan McNamara and Aidan McTigue all pointed before the finish but Kiltane were full value for their win and they advance to the quarter final.

Davitts had encouraging displays from James Cummins, Ronan McNamara, Liam Kearns, Paul Carey, Shane Treacy and Thomas Waldron.
