Davitts v Bonniconlon – Minor League
The minor team secured their first brace of league points when defeating Bonniconlon, 1-14 to 3-7, in a very exciting match played in sun drenched Ballindine on Sunday. There was little between these two sides throughout the match and they went in level, 0-5 to 1-2, at half time. Bonniconlon goaled just after halftime, after a sweeping move, but Davitts responded in the proper fashion, playing some terrific football, and clinched victory in the dying moments with points from impressive sub Darren Connolly and Tommy Clarke.
Josh Ronayne was the outstanding player on the pitch and he scored 1-8 in a dynamic display. Gerard McWalter, Cathal Higgins and the excellent Donal Ronayne defended brilliantly, midfielders Michael Waldron and Mark Ronayne won lots of possession and worked tirelessly, while up front Tommy Clarke, James Prendergast and Tommy Waldron gave Josh Ronayne best support.
