Davitts Minors continued on their winning run in Div 4 of the League with a convincing 4-14 to 0-6 win over Bonniconlon in Ballindine on Friday evening. The scoreline flattered the homeside as Bonniconlon had plenty of possession but the Davitts attack was at times unstoppable with all six forwards and both midfielders contributing to the scoreline.
Davitts led by 2-6 to 0-4 at halftime after points from Jack Trench (2), Stephen Nyland, Jack Devane (2) and Zack Keadin and two terrific goals from Niall Treacy, after a great Stephen Nyland run, and Fenton Kelly, who fetched Joe Prendergast’s well placed kickout, played a one two with Jack Trench, before burying a rasper past the helpless keeper.
The trend continued in the second half with Bonniconlon enjoying a fair amount of the ball but Davitts looking sharp in an attack led by the superb Niall Treacy. Treacy created the second goal, setting up Danny Corless who finished with aplomb while subs Brian Birmingham and Davy Hennessy combined for the fourth goal withy the latter supplying the finish. There were second half points from Niall Treacy (3), Jack Devane, Stephen Nyland, Fenton Kelly, Danny Corless and Cathal Corless.
Joe Prendergast was a very confident goalkeeper with defenders Thomas Ronayne, Oisin O Connor, Charlie Phillips, Gary Bourke, Fionan Gallagher and Sean Feerick in a mean mood throughout the game. Stephen Nyland (0-2) and Fenton Kelly (1-1) impressed at midfield. Jack Trench (0-2), Niall Treacy (1-3), Cathal Corless (0-1), Danny Corless (1-2), Zack Keadin (0-1) and Jack Devane (0-3) formed a hard working attack that linked up very well. Substitutes Tristan Diskin, Bon Glynn, Davy Hennessy (1-0), Brian Og McTigue and Brian Birmingham were introduced in the second half and they all did well.
