Minors get Division 2 League campaign off to winning start
Davitts Minor team travelled to Knockmore on Sunday morning and came away with two valuable league (Division 2) points in a very encouraging start to their season. Amazingly, Davitts trailed by 0-11 to 0-1 at the interval, albeit having played against the wind in the first half. They chipped away at the lead in the second half but still trailed with ten minutes remaining. Davitts never panicked however and were rewarded with two cracking late goals by Cathal Hennelly to win by 2-11 to 0-13, a scoreline that looked most unlikely at halftime.
The whole team showed great spirit in the second half with Dylan Keadin, the superb Donal Ronayne, energetic midfielder Thomas Waldron, Michael Clarke, Cathal Hennelly and Liam Noone in top form.
Davitts team: Michael Mangan, Dylan Keadin, Donal Ronayne, Dylan Higgins, John Huane, Padraig Mangan, Jack Rodgers, William Freeley, Thomas Waldron (0-2), Patrick Keadin, Michael Clarke (0-4), Matthew Trench (0-1), Cathal Hennelly (2-0), Liam Noone (0-4), Gerald Griffin.
