Juniors v Killala – Match Report
Davitts secured two valuable Senior League Div 1D points with a very impressive five point victory over Killala, 2-12 to 1-10, in Ballindine on Saturday evening. Davitts, with the assistance of the wind, were playing second fiddle to Killala for the first quarter and trailled by 1-1 to 0-3 after fifteen minutes. The homeside then assumed full control of the game until the break and led by 1-9 to 1-3 at the interval with Andrew Peters, the best player on the field, Thomas Waldron, William Freeley, Brian Clarke, Donal Ronayne, Lawrence Daly and Johnno Clarke leading the charge. Sean Waldron bagged the first half goal after excellent work by Darren Connolly.
Killala started the second half impressively but some poor shooting and a few terrific David Mitchell saves frustrated them before Andrew Peters, soccer style, emphatically finished Davitts second goal which effectively killed off the game with fifteen minutes remaining. Davitts are now right in the mix for promotion from this division in the league as this young team continue to show some real quality.
