Seniors v Ballintubber – Match Report
Davitts 0-6 Ballintubber 1-16
Ballintubber showed why they are one of the strongest teams in the county, or even the province, with a clinical display in Ballindine in the Senior League Div 1A on Saturday evening. With both squads operating without a number of first team regulars, the strength and intensity of the Ballintubber lads was very impressive, as they brushed aside the home team’s challenge with ease.
Ballintubber lead by 1-5 to 0-3 at halftime after a reasonably well fought first half. Davitts scorers were Thomas Waldron, Ronan McNamara and Keith Prendergast.
Ballintubber completely dominated the second half, despite the best efforts of Keith Prendergast (Davitts best player), Padraig Mangan, Ronan McNamara, Colm Roche, Cathal Higgins and subs Sean Waldron and Brian Clarke.
Points from Aidan McTigue (2) and Darren Connolly completed the Davitts tally on a night when even the most diehard supporter, of which we have many, would have to admit that we weren’t ever really at the races.
Davitts: Adrian McNamara, Donal Ronayne, Cathal Higgins, Colm Roche, Keith Prendergast (0-1), Padraig Mangan, Martin Cosgrove, Ronan McNamara (0-1), Michael Waldron, Seamus Roche, Thomas Waldron (0-1), Liam Kearns, Aidan McTigue (0-2), Fearghal McGrath, Darren Connolly (0-1). Subs used: Brian Clarke, Michael Mangan, Johnno Clarke and William Freeley.
