Davitts v Claremorris – O’Mara Cup – Match Report
Davitts hosted Claremorris in the O’Mara Cup on Saturday and after dominating the exchanges for most of the game, must be wondering how they didn’t emerge victorious, Claremorris winning on a 2-8 to 0-12 scoreline. Davitts dominated this game, with Keith Glynn in superb form at midfield, and were leading by 0-7 to 0-2 going into injury time in the first half, when Claremorris were awarded a penalty, which was clinically despatched by Liam Feeley.
The second half followed on the same lines, with Davitts impressing all over the field, but not on the scoreboard, and Claremorris capitalised with a last minute goal, to accept the two O Mara Cup points generously gifted to them by the homeside.
Davitts, while gutted by the result, will be delighted with the excellent performances of the outstanding Colm Boyle, Frankie Barrett, Keith Glynn, Carlos O Gara, Keith Prendergast, Aidan McTigue and Michael Conroy, and if their forwards convert their chances, will become a potent force later on in the year.
Davitts team: Mark Diskin, Michael Ronayne, Frankie Barrett, Colm Boyle, Jonathon Clarke, Paul Carey, Colm Roche, Keith Glynn, David McDonagh (0-1), Liam Kearns (0-6), Keith Prendergast (0-1), Carlos O Gara, Aidan McTigue (0-2), Fergal McMcGrath (0-1), Michael Conroy.
