Juniors v Hollymount Carramore–Junior B Championship – Match Report
Davitts hosted Hollymount Carramore in the County Junior B Championship on Sunday with a late goal giving the visitors a 2-6 to 0-10 victory. Davitts had led from the start of the game but poor shooting meant they never led by more than three points and Hollymount Carramore took the advantage at the death.
Davitts raced into a 0-4 to 0-0 lead with early points from Dara O Flaherty (2) and Liam Kearns (2). A goal against the run of play gave the visitors hope but two more points from Liam Kearns gave the homeside a 0-6 to 1-2 lead at the break. While the quality of the game wasn’t top class, the commitment of both sets of players could not be faulted in the greasy conditions.
In a low scoring second half both teams had scored three points each, Donal Ronayne (2) and Liam Kearns on the mark for Davitts, as the match entered it final minutes. Hollycarra struck for a goal as time ran out to take the lead for the first time in the match. Dara O Flaherty pointed for the homeside but the visitors pointed again before the end to claim the spoils.
