Seniors v Ballinrobe – Match Report
Davitts senior team demonstrated that goals really do win matches when defeating Ballinrobe by 4-6 to 1-12 in the Michael Walsh Secondary League game played in Ballinrobe on Saturday evening. With both sides understrength, Davitts looked the more likely in the first half and led by 2-3 to 1-5 at halftime. Davitts first half goals came from wing back Johnno Clarke (after excellent work by Andrew Peters) and Darren Connolly, who finished a six man move with aplomb. Ballinrobe’s goal came in the last seconds of the half after a promising Davitts move broke down deep in the homeside’s half.
Ballinrobe assumed control of the game in the third quarter and raced into a 1-11 to 2-4 lead before two spectacular goals by Josh Ronayne and Mark Ronayne in the space of a minute swung the game back in Davitts favour. This was a game that could have gone either way but it was great to see the never say die attitude of the young Davitts side.
