Ballinrobe proved too strong for Davitts in the South Mayo U-14 A Championship on Tuesday evening in Ballinrobe winning decisively by 6-16 to 2-9. The homeside got off to a flyer and had 2-2 on the board before Dylan Gallagher shot Davitts first score, a 10th minute point. The lively Fionn McLoughlin gave Davitts some hope with a cracking individual goal in the 11th minute and added a point less than a minute later. A third Ballinrobe goal just before the water break put the home team six points clear.
The Robe shot six points to Davitts four in the second quarter, Dylan Gallagher (3) and Ciaran Treacy on target for Davitts, but another goal in the last minute of the half saw Ballinrobe ahead by 4-8 to 1-6 at the interval.
Ballinrobe opened the second half scoring with two points but Davitts replied with points from Fionn McLoughlin and Dylan Gallagher (2) and a Dylan Gallagher goal in the 42nd minute narrowed the gap to seven points but that was as good as it got for the visitors. Ballinrobe took complete control in the final quarter shooting an unanswered 2-6, which could have been more were it not for some superb saves by Davitts keeper Dylan O Brien.
