South Mayo U-18 A C’ship v Claremorris match report

Davitts U-18’s made the short journey to Claremorris to take on the locals in the South A Championship on Friday evening but Claremorris, boasting a much more economical attack, took the spoils on a 2-14 to 0-13 scoreline. Claremorris were much sharper, particularly in the first half, with the benefit of a game under their belts already a possible factor, and now Davitts have to beat Ballinrobe next week to have a chance of reaching the final.

Claremorris had two points on the board before Dylan Gallagher opened Davitts account in the 7th minute. A ninth minute point for the homeside was cancelled out by a Fenton Kelly score a minute later but while Davitts shot six wides in the next five minutes while Claremorris tagged on a goal and three points to go seven points ahead. Fenton Kelly pulled one back for Davitts before the first water break.

Three Claremorris points in the second quarter were matched by three similar Davitts scores from the boot of Cathal Corless but a second Claremorris goal just before half time left the homeside ahead by 2-9 to 0-6 at the break and Davitts with a mountain to climb.

The stop start nature of the second half suited Claremorris and some fine defending and excellent goalkeeping thwarted Davitts on several occasions. Points from Dylan Gallagher and Cathal Corless (2) and three similar Claremorris scores maintained a nine point margin between the sides as the game entered the final quarter and semi darkness.

Davitts threw everything they had at the homeside but two more Cathal Corless points and one each from Fenton Kelly and Bon Glynn was not enough as Claremorris tagged on two more themselves before the final whistle to end up the victors by seven points.

Davitts best performers in this game were Brian Og McTigue, Fionnan Gallagher, Thomas Ronayne, Fenton Kelly, Cathal Corless, Jack Melvin, Dylan Gallagher and Bon Glynn.

Davitts: Tristan Diskin, Mark Birmingham, Micheal Hett, Brian Og McTigue, Fionnan Gallagher, Thomas Ronayne, Brian Birmingham, Fenton Kelly (0-3), Cathal Corless (0-7), Sean Keadin, Jack Melvin, Davey Hennessy, Dylan Gallagher (0-2), Jack Devane, Fionn McLoughlin. Subs used: Bon Glynn (0-1), Conor McDermott.

South Mayo U-14 C’ship v Mayo Gaels match report

Davitts and Mayo Gaels met in the South Mayo U-14 B Championship in Ballindine on Thursday evening and it was the visitors who took the spoils, winning by 3-14 to 4-9 after an entertaining game.

Davitts got off to a flying start and had 1-2 on the board in the first five minutes with Dylan Gormally (1-1) and Killian Kearns the scorers. Amazingly Davitts were held scoreless for the remainder of the half as the Gaels took over. The visitors led by 1-8 to 1-2 at halftime.

Davitts upped their game after the interval and Dylan Gormally goaled again in the 32nd minute. Aaron O Dea pointed and Aaron Conneely Basham shot two points but Mayo Gaels goaled twice and also added two points to lead by 3-10 to 2-5 at the second water break. Aaron Conneely Basham, now finding his best form, fired home a brilliant goal in the 45th minute but Gaels replied with two points and looked like they were heading for a comfortable victory but Davitts had other ideas. Aaron Conneely Basham pointed in the 56th and 57th minutes before Dylan Gormally expertly converted a 58th minute penalty to narrow the gap to four points. Injury time points from Aaron Conneely Basham and Noah O Brien closed the deficit to two points but the final whistle went as Mayo Gaels desperately hung on for the win.

Davitts had great performances from Ronan Hett, Adam Rattigan, Sean Clarke, Tadhg Feerick, Aaron Conneely Basham, Noah O Brien, Aaron O Dea and Dylan Gormally.

Davitts: Ronan Hett, Adam Rattigan, Sean Clarke, Ramen Habibi, Jason Boyle, Tadhg Feerick, Pierce Diskin, Noah O Brien (0-1), Aaron Conneely Basham (1-5), Peter Kilkenny, Dylan Gormally (3-1), Aaron O Dea (0-1), Luke Rattigan, Killian Kearns (0-1), Odhran McTigue. Sub used: Loughlin Darby

Davitts and Aghamore met in the Senior League Div 5 in Ballindine on Sunday with the visitors securing the points after an entertaining game. Aghamore led by 1-8 to 0-6 at halftime with Micheal Mangan, Brian Clarke, Shane Treacy, Liam Macken and Cathal Hennelly (2) getting the Davitts points.

Aghamore opened the second half scoring with a 31st minute point but this was cancelled out by Cathal Hennelly a minute later. Aghamore struck for their second goal in the 35th minute but a Cathal Hennelly point and a Cian Naughton goal gave the homeside some hope. This was shortlived though as Aghamore goaled for the third time and added a point just before the second water break. They extended their lead to nine points with a  47th minute point but Cian Naughton struck his second goal in the 51st minute.

Senior League v Swinford match report

Swinford 1-6  Davitts 4-10

Davitts Seniors secured a morale boosting League win away to Swinford on Saturday evening. From the outset it was obvious that the Davitts lads were well fired up for the challenge and an early Fenton Kelly goal after excellent approach play by Niall Treacy and Darragh McGale set them on their way in the second minute. Two minutes later Davitts were awarded a penalty after a foul on Niall Treacy but the Swinford keeper saved well from Josh Ronayne. Swinford pointed in the fifth minute but Davitts took command and points from Jack Ronayne and Josh Ronayne (2) and an opportunistic goal from Darragh McGale left the visitors ahead by 2-3 to 0-1 at the first water break.

Swinford added two points to their tally before half time and an Evan Ronane point and a second Darragh McGale goal put Davitts into a ten point lead at the half time break. Both sides were guilty of some poor shooting as a number of good scoring chances were spurned.

Evan Ronane and Tommy Waldron hit early second half points for Davitts and Swinford replied with a 35th minute goal. A 38th minute Jack Ronayne point was cancelled out by a similar Swinford score three minutes later. Davitts outscored the homeside by 1-3 to 0-2 in the final quarter, the points coming from the boots of Josh Ronayne (2) and Cathal Hennelly with Niall Treacy bagging the goal after great work by Fenton Kelly and Cathal Hennelly.

Davitts had great performances from Thomas Ronayne, Tommy Waldron, Dmitry Trench, Ronan McNamara (making a welcome return after a lengthly layoff), and the forward sextet who linked very well throughout.

Davitts: Keith Prendergast, Micheal Hett, Cathal Higgins, Tom Corless, Thomas Ronayne, Tommy Waldron (0-1), Dmitry Trench, Ronan McNamara, Johnno Clarke, Josh Ronayne (0-4), Jack Ronayne (0-2), Fenton Kelly ((1-0), Niall Treacy (1-0), Darragh McGale (2-0), Evan Ronane (0-2).

U-19 County final v Knockmore match report

Knockmore 5-11  Davitts 2-10 (AET)

After chasing the game for most of the first hour, Knockmore captured the Mayo U-19 Div 2 title, defeating Davitts, after taking command in extra time. The game was played in Breaffy on Wednesday evening with the sides deadlocked after normal time as Knockmore grabbed a late equaliser to send the game into extra time.

Davitts Niall Treacy opened the scoring with a first minute point. This was cancelled out by Charlie Bourke for Knockmore a minute later but points from Niall Treacy (2), Jack Melvin and Jack Devane put Davitts four ahead before Charlie Bourke pointed for Knockmore just before the first water break.

Ethan Clarke pointed for Knockmore in the 19th minute but a fine Jack Devane goal for Davitts in the 23rd minute, after great approach play from Mark Birmingham, Niall Treacy and Fenton Kelly, put his side five points up. Knockmore points from Fergal Keane and Charlie Bourke in the 24th and 26th minutes saw Davitts lead by 1-5 to 0-5 at halftime.

Niall Treacy and Fenton Kelly pointed early in the second half for Davitts who goaled again in the 35th minute, Jack Melvin converting from the penalty spot after he had been fouled. This put Davitts eight points ahead and there only looked like one winner but Knockmore had other ideas. Tadgh O Sullivan pointed to reduce the deficit with a 37th minute point but although Niall Treacy cancelled out this score in the 40th minute, Knockmore were beginning to get more into the game. Tadgh O Sullivan pointed again in the 42nd minute and midfielder Tadgh Staunton goaled in the 48th minute, reacting quickest after Davitts keeper Tristan Diskin had pulled off a great save from Mikie McHale. Charlie Bourke pointed again for Knockmore in the 48th minute and five minutes later a long range point attempt from Tadgh O Sullivan dropped short and was flicked to the net by Mikie McHale to tie the game. Niall Treacy pointed in the 58th minute to restore Davitts lead but Charlie Bourke shot the equaliser with virtually the last kick of the game to force extra time.

Knockmore pointed in the first minute of extra time through Charlie Bourke and the same player capitalised on a Davitts defensive error to goal from the kickout. Another Knockmore goal in the 5th minute from substitute Oliver Armstrong followed by a Charlie Bourke point put Knockmore eight points ahead at half time.

The second period of extra time was messy with not much constructive football being played. Niall Treacy pulled a point back for Davitts but that man Charlie Bourke had the final say, gaoling again for Knockmore in the last minute, in the fading light and torrential rain.

Knockmore displayed great fighting spirit in this game with Diarmuid Brogan, Sean McLoughlin, Sean King, Conor Dunne, Tadgh Staunton, man of the match Charlie Bourke, Tadgh O Sullivan and Mikie McHale impressing.

Davitts had top performers in Micheal Hett, Charlie Phillips, Thomas Ronayne, Fionnan Gallagher, Cathal Corless, Fenton Kelly, Niall Treacy and Jack Melvin.

Knockmore: Jim Kelly, Diarmuid Brogan, Keith Coleman, Sean McLoughlin, Sean King, Martin Orme, Michael Holmes, Conor Dunne, Tadgh Staunton (1-0), Brian Durkin, Charlie Bourke (2-7), Fergal Keane (0-1), Tadgh O Sullivan (0-2), Mikie McHale (1-0), Ethan Clarke (0-1).

U-19 County semi-final v Belmullet match report

Davitts 5-17  Belmullet 5-3

Davitts had the benefit of home advantage in the County U-19 Division 2 semi-final against Belmullet and they made it count, defeating the visitors by a flattering fourteen point margin. The scoreline might suggest otherwise but the match outcome was in fact very much in the balance until the final few minutes, before Davitts scored three late goals to book their place in the County final against Knockmore.

After the two sides shared the opening four points in the first five minutes, with Niall Treacy and Zack Keadin on target for Davitts, the homeside took a firm grip on the game with Fenton Kelly and Cathal Corless in dominant form at midfield. They added points from Niall Treacy (3), Zack Keadin and Jack Melvin before Niall Treacy goaled in the 13th minute to put his side seven points ahead. Belmullet replied with a 14th minute goal to stem the tide. Davitts points from Niall Treacy (2), Jack Melvin and Jack Trench extended Davitts lead but another Belmullet goal in the 24th minute kept them in touch. Niall Treacy kicked the last score of the half, a 30th minute point, to leave Davitts ahead by 1-12 to 2-2 at the interval.

Belmullet opened the second half scoring with a 31st minute point but Davitts replied with two similar scores from Cathal Corless and Jack Devane in the next two minutes. Two Belmullet goals in the 37th and 44th minutes sandwiched a Zack Keadin point leaving just four points between the teams at the second water break.

A fine Cathal Corless point was followed by a second Niall Treacy goal but Belmullet grabbed a fifth goal in the 50th minute to leave five points separating the sides. Davitts finished the game with a flourish. Niall Treacy pointed after a superb run in the 52nd minute and substitute Finn McLoughlin justified his introduction with two cracking goals in the 58th and 62nd minutes before Jack Melvin converted a 63rd minute penalty just before the full time whistle.

Davitts had eyecatching performances from Brian Og McTigue, Tomas Ronayne, Brian Birmingham, Cathal Corless, Fenton Kelly, Niall Treacy, Jack Melvin, Zack Keadin and Finn McLoughlin.

Davitts: Tristan Diskin, Micheal Hett, Charlie Phillips, Brian Og McTigue, Tomas Ronayne, Fionnan Gallagher, Brian Birmingham, Cathal Corless(0-2), Fenton Kelly, Jack Trench (0-1), Jack Devane (0-1), Joe Prendergast, Niall Treacy (2-8), Jack Melvin (1-2), Zack Keadin (0-3).
