Minor v Carras match report


Carras 1-9  Davitts 0-15

Davitts minors got their Div 2 league campaign off to a winning start with a three point defeat of neighbours Carras in Garrymore on Sunday morning. The game was in the balance right up to the final whistle as is the norm when those two rivals meet.

Carras opened the scoring in the fourth minute and the impressive Ronan Kelly shot Davitts first point two minutes later. Carras then tagged on three points in a row between the 8th and 13th minutes. Davitts got on top in the third quarter and although they spurned at least three gilt edged goal chances, points from Ronan Kelly, Ciaran Treacy (2), Aaron CB and Tadhg Feerick saw them go ahead by two before a late brace of Carras points tied the game at half-time, 0-6 each.

A Carras point in the first minute of the second half was cancelled out by a similar score from Noah O Brien in the 36th minute. Carras regained the lead with their eighth point on 38 minutes but five Davitts points in a row from Ciaran Treacy (3), Aaron CB and Fionn McTigue put them four ahead with ten minutes remaining. The home side pointed in the 51st minute with Ciaran Treacy restoring the four point gap in the 55th minute. Carras set up a grand stand finish with a goal a minute later but two late Davitts points from Ciaran Treacy and Noah O Brien completed the scoring and gave the visitors a three point win.

Dylan Gormley had a solid game in goals with Conor McDermott, Tadhg Feerick, Burke Briere, Ronan Kelly and Ciaran Treacy impressing in a good team display.
