O Mara Cup v The Neale match report

The Neale 1-10  Davitts 0-6

The Neale and Davitts met in the O Mara Cup on Friday night. The game was played in wet and windy conditions which meant that quality play was at a premium. Playing into the stiff wind, Jack Devane opened the scoring with a well taken Davitts point in the 6th minute. Both sides were guilty of some erratic shooting but the home-side shot points in the 7th, 9th, 11th and 24th minutes and a goal two minutes from half-time gave them a healthy six point lead at the interval.

Two Liam Kearns points and one from second half sub Michael Conroy narrowed the gap to three as the game entered the final quarter. The home team, appearing to have the edge on fitness, fired over six points in the last fifteen minutes with Davitts only managing two, from Liam Kearns and Jack Devane.

Joe Prendergast, Sean Feerick, Sean Keadin, Charlie Phillips, Liam Kearns and Jack Devane played well but the whole team fought hard throughout.

Davitts: Joe Prendergast, Sean Feerick, Kieran Fahy, Sean Keadin, Tommy Waldron, Thomas Ronayne, Mark Birmingham, Cathal Higgins, Charlie Phillips, Johnno Clarke, Liam Kearns (0-3), Fionn McLoughlin, Jack Devane (0-2), Darragh McGale, Stephen Nyland. Subs used: Michael Conroy (0-1), Cian Naughton, Patrick Keadin.
