Charlestown 2-9 Davitts 0-15
Davitts qualified for the quarter final of the Michael Walsh Cup (Breaffy await) after earning an away draw against Charlestown on Saturday evening. Davitts were on top for long spells in this game but two first half goals from the homeside had Charlestown ahead by 2-5 to 0-6 after twenty minutes. Davitts rallied well and shot the last four points of the half to go in trailing by the minimum, 2-5 to 0-10, at the break.
The game could have swung either way in the second half but excellent defending by Davitts outstanding corner back Kevin Gallagher, James Cummins and Colm Roche curtailed the Charlestown attacking threat. Declan Healy and Michael Waldron did well at midfield but the exchanges were very much tit for tat in the second half. Josh Ronayne, Liam Kearns, Andy Peters, Aidan McTigue and substitute Keith Prendergast (who showed some majestic touches) drove forward as Davitts earned a deserved share of the spoils, with the impressive Josh Ronayne pointing a last minute equaliser to ensure his side a quarter final berth.
