U-17 County semi-final v Eastern Gaels match report

Eastern Gaels 7-9  Davitts 2-14

Eastern Gaels produced a storming final quarter performance to pull away from Davitts in the County U-17 B semi-final played in Ballyhaunis on Monday evening. The sides were level at half time and the Gaels led by a point at the second water break but they finished the game impressively and outscored Davitts by 3-2 to 0-2 in the last fifteen minutes to qualify for the final against Claremorris.

First half points from Dylan Gallagher (3), Cathal Corless (3), Jack Melvin (2), Ciaran Treacy and Bon Glynn saw Davitts level at the interval, 0-10 to 2-4, but the warning signs were there as the Eastern Gaels lads looked very dangerous in attack, and were creating a lot of goal chances.

The Gaels started the second half with a point in the first minute and added a goal three minutes later. Davitts responded well and Conor McDermott hammered home a fine goal after great work by Cathal Corless and Finn McLoughlin in the fifth minute. Both sides pointed twice before the second water break, Jack Melvin and Conor McDermott on target for Davitts and a 40th minute Eastern Gaels goal was matched by a super Dylan Gallagher effort five minutes later to leave Eastern Gaels one ahead going into the last quarter.

A Dylan Gallagher point in the 48th minute tied the game again the Gaels found the net again in the 50th minute. They added a point in the 53rd minute and another goal two minutes later to go into a seven point lead. Burke Briere pulled one back for Davitts who were desperately trying to manufacture a goal. Davitts midfielder Cathal Corless received a black card and Eastern Gaels tagged on another goal and a point in injury time to advance to the final.

Best for Davitts were Sean Keadin, Mark Birmingham, Conor Feerick, Cathal Corless, Jack Melvin, Conor McDermott and Dylan Gallagher.

Davitts: Dylan O Brien, Sean Keadin, Sean Meehan, Ethan Boyle, Mark Birmingham, Conor Feerick, Jack Melvin (0-3), Cathal Corless (0-3), Ciaran Treacy (0-1), Conor McDermott (1-1), Bon Glynn (0-1), Dylan Gallagher (1-4), Finn McLoughlin.

U-15 County Final v Charlestown match report

Davitts 4-15  Charlestown 0-5

A very well drilled Davitts team proved too strong for Charlestown in the County U-15 C final played in perfect conditions in Claremorris on Thursday evening.

Davitts got into their stride early and shot the first four points of the game via Ronan Kelly, their outstanding captain Conor McDermott (2) and Brian Corless before a Cillian Hanley Marren point opened Charlestown’s account in the 12th minute. Another Ronan Kelly point in the 16th minute for Davitts was followed by a tremendous Tadhg Feerick goal, after some neat build up play by Dylan Gormally, to extend Davitts lead to seven points . Cillian Hanley Marren pointed for Charlestown in the 20th minute but this was cancelled out a minute later by an Aaron Conneely Basham point. Cian Towey scored two points for Charlestown in the 25th and 27th minutes and Conor McDermott hit one for Davitts in the 29th minute to leave his side ahead by 1-7 to 0-4 at halftime.

Davitts completely dominated the third quarter and a goal three minutes into the second period scored by their impressive substitute Burke Briere after great play by Noah O Brien and Ciaran Treacy put them firmly in command. Fionn McTigue and Ronan Kelly for Davitts and Charlestown’s Cillian Hanley Marren and sub Michael McCarthy exchanged points between the 39th and 41st minutes. Ciaran Treacy and Conor McDermott added points for Davitts before Aaron Conneely Basham hammered home his side’s third goal in the 44th minute, with Dylan Gormally again providing the assist. Aaron O Dea pointed a minute later to leave Davitts ahead by 3-12 to 0-6 at the second water break.

Ciaran Treacy goaled again for Davitts in the 46th minute and the same player, Burke Briere and Conor McDermott added points before referee Jon Finn blew the full time whistle.

This was an exceptional team performance from the Davitts team. Dylan O Brien had a quiet night in goald due to the superb defending of Jason and Ethan Boyle, powerful full back Brian Hett, Ben Corless, Sean Clarke and the two excellent wing backs Noah O Brien and Tadhg Feerick. Man of the match Conor McDermott and Brian Corless controlled the midfield sector. The Davitts attack strung together some super moves with Ronan Kelly, Ciaran Treacy and Aaron Conneely Basham excellent on the half forward line. Dylan Gormally had a fine game as did Burke Briere when introduced before half time while Fionn McTigue, Michael Hyland, Aaron O Dea and Luke Rattigan all made their contributions to a great win.

Well done also to the management team of Derek Byrne, Declan Kirrane, Frank Kelly and Brendan Kilkenny.

And finally, we wish Peter Kilkenny a speedy recovery from an injury sustained on Wednesday which resulted in him missing this game. Get well soon Peter.

Davitts: Dylan O Brien, Jason Boyle, Brian Hett, Ben Corless, Noah O Brien, Ethan Boyle, Tadhg Feerick (1-0), Conor McDermott (0-5), Brian Corless (0-1), Ronan Kelly (0-3), Ciaran Treacy (1-2), Aaron Conneely Basham, Michael Hyland, Dylan Gormally, Fionn McTigue (0-1).

U-17 v Parke Keelogues Crimlin match report

Davitts 5-16  Parke Keelogues Crimlin 2-17

Davitts qualified for the County U-17 B semi-final after an epic encounter with a gallant Parke Keelogues Crimlin side in Ballindine on Monday evening. The sides finished level, 2-12 apiece, after sixty minutes of superb football but it was the home side that finished the stronger in extra time.

PKC got off to a flying start with three points in the first four minutes. A fantastic Dylan Gallagher goal in the eighth minute settled down the Davitts lads. Both sides added a point to their tally, Cathal Corless with the Davitts score, leaving the sides level at the first water break. Davitts shot four good points in the second quarter courtesy of Dylan Gallagher, Conor McDermott (2) and Ronan Kelly, with PKC shooting three to leave Davitts ahead by a point, 1-5 to 0-7 at halftime.

Davitts shot the first three points of the second half with Dylan Gallagher and Cathal Corless (2) finding the target. PKC replied with points in the 37th and 39th minutes and a cracking goal in the 41st minute to go into a one point lead.  Davitts response to this goal was swift and they cancelled it out thirty seconds later with a brilliant Fionn McLoughlin goal after a sweeping move involving Cathal Corless, Ronan Kelly, Conor McDermott and Harry Fallon. Cathal Corless extended Davitts lead to three points in the 47th minute but the away side came storming back again scoring 1-2 without reply in the next four minutes to regain the lead. Two excellent Dylan Gallagher points tied the game again and Cathal Corless pointed in the 58th minute to give Davitts the lead again but PKC equalised in injury time with the last kick of normal time.

Sean Keadin pointed in the first minute of extra time after a great run but PKC scored two points in the 3rd and 4th minutes. A foul on Dylan Gallagher led to Davitts being awarded a penalty in the 5th minute and centre back Jack Melvin converted it confidently. PKC replied with a point before Dylan Gallagher pointed and then scored his second goal of the game, another top class finish after a brilliant run to put Davitts ahead by five points at half time in extra time.

A PKC point in the 11th minute was matched by Cathal Corless in the 13th minute. PKC pointed again in the 17th minute but this was cancelled out by a Brian Corless point. The final score of the game came in the last minute when Fionn McLoughlin was fouled in the penalty box and Jack Melvin’s spot kick rattled the underside of the crossbar and he reacted quickest to goal from the rebound.

This was a hugely entertaining match between two very evenly matched teams. While all of the Davitts players played very well, the performances of Dylan O Brien, who brought off a number of top class saves, Sean Keadin, Jack Melvin, the outstanding Cathal Corless, Mark Birmingham, Conor McDermott, Finn McLoughlin and Dylan Gallagher, a player with huge potential, were key to ensuring Davitts passage to the semi-final.

Davitts: Dylan O Brien, Aaron Trench, Sean Keadin (0-1), Sean Meehan, Conor Feerick, Jack Melvin (2-0), Ethan Boyle, Mark Birmingham, Cathal Corless (0-6), Ronan Kelly (0-1), Conor McDermott (0-2), Ciaran Treacy, Dylan Gallagher (2-5), Harry Fallon, Finn McLoughlin (1-0). Subs used: Brian Corless (0-1), Brian Hett, Fionn McTigue, Ruadhan O Connaire.

Junior League v Breaffy match report

Davitts 2-13  Breaffy 2-10

After two narrow defeats in the Div 5 League, Davitts Juniors had a welcome victory over Breaffy in Ballindine on Sunday. The game was played in ideal conditions and both sides played some very good football in what was an entertaining match.

Two Davitts points in the 47th minute by Danny Corless and Brian Clarke extended their lead to seven points and Jack Devane added to this with a super point from distance in the 51st minute.

Breaffy replied with four points of their own before Aidan Macken got on the end of a great move to goal for Davitts in the 60th minute. Breaffy refused to lie down and a point a minute later followed by a goal deep into stoppage time saw Davitts lead reduced to three points before referee Vinnie Joyce, who had a fine game, blew the fulltime whistle.

Senior League v Kilcommon match report

Kilcommon 2-9  Davitts 0-11

Davitts Senior’s long journey to Glenamoy on Saturday evening proved to be a futile one as the homeside made light of the miserable climatic conditions to claim the two Division 3 league points on offer.

Kilcommon, played with the assistance of the strong wind in the first half, led by 1-3 to 0-2 at the first water break, the goal coming from the penalty spot in the 12th minute. Josh Ronayne and Keith Prendergast scored the two Davitts points.

Kilcommon, dominating the middle third of the pitch, added four points to their tally before halftime with Shane Treacy and Keith Prendergast replying for Davitts. A Kilcommon goal at the start of the second half left the visitors with a mountain to climb. The second half was extremely messy and the stop start nature of the game suited the home side. They led by 2-7 to 0-6 after the third quarter as Davitts couldn’t make any progress against a very rugged defensive home set-up.

Davitts really needed a goal but had to settle for points as the Kilcommon lads defended well. Davitts shot five points in the final quarter via Josh Ronayne (3), Cathal Hennelly and Aidan Macken but Kilcommon held on for a well deserved victory.

Best for Davitts were Keith Prendergast, Kieran Fahy, Josh Ronayne, Jack Ronayne, Shane Treacy and Niall Treacy.

Davitts: Keith Prendergast, Patrick Keadin, Cathal Higgins, Kieran Fahy, Jack Trench, Tommy Waldron, Dmitry Trench, Josh Ronayne (0-5), Johnno Clarke, Fenton Kelly, Shane Treacy (0-1), Jack Ronayne, Niall Treacy, Darragh McGale, Evan Ronane (0-1). Subs used: Cathal Hennelly (0-1), Tom Corless, Aidan Macken (0-1), Padraig Mangan, Liam Macken, Brian Clarke.

U-19 v Balla match report

Davitts and Balla met in the U-19 B Championship in Ballindine on Wednesday evening with the home side prevailing by four points after a game that had flashes of great quality from both sides. Davitts always had the edge and led by 0-7 to 0-3 after the first quarter with senior players Niall Treacy (5) and Fenton Kelly (2) dominating the scoring.  Another two points from Niall Treacy, and one apiece from Fenton Kelly and Sean Keadin saw Davitts extend their lead to 0-11 to 0-5 at halftime.

Fenton Kelly scored a superb goal in the first minute of the second half and Davitts added five further points before the second water break, with Balla only managing one point in that third quarter. Those five Davitts points came from Niall Treacy (2), Fenton Kelly, Dylan Gallagher and Jack Devane.

The game really burst into life in the final quarter with Balla finding their scoring touch in some style. They goaled in the 46th minute with this goal cancelled out by a Finn McLoughlin goal for the homeside less than a minute later. Balla goaled again in the 49th minute and Fenton Kelly replied with a point for Davitts.  Balla pointed in the 51st minute but two points from Cathal Corless and Jack Melvin for Davitts saw them extend their lead to twelve points but Balla fought back again. They fired home three more goals in the last four minutes with a Jack Devane point being Davitts sole reply, to leave the home team the four point winners of a fascinating game between two very good teams.

All of the Davitts players had their moments in this game with Charlie Phillips, Tomas Ronayne, Jack Trench, Fenton Kelly, Cathal Corless, Sean Keadin and Niall Treacy very impressive.
