Junior Team v Lacken – Match Report
Davitts junior team continued their good start to the season with an impressive 1-15 to 0-10 victory over Lacken in Ballindine on Saturday evening. Davitts led by 0-9 to 0-3 at half time after playing with the stiff wind. The first half scorers were Darren Connolly (6), Tommy Mitchell, Andrew Peters and Seamus Roche.
Davitts were more impressive in the second half and played some excellent football as Lacken threw all they had at the home side. The whole defence held firm with the full back line of Brian Clarke, Michael Waldron and Donal Ronayne in top form. Sean Waldron and Tommy Mitchell dominated midfield while Darren Connolly was most impressive at corner forward.
Further points from Tommy Mitchell, Sean Waldron, Darren Connolly (2), Donal Ronayne and Thomas Waldron and a superb goal from Darren Connolly sealed a good victory.
This was a great team performance and augers well for the future of the club as this is a very young squad of players. It would be wrong not to mention the Lacken’s John Clarke who gave an exhibition of freetaking scoring nine points from nine freekicks.
