Seniors v Crossmolina – Secondary League – Match Report
Davitts Senior team travelled to Crossmolina and were defeated 1-11 to 1-4 by the homeside on Saturday evening in the Michael Walsh Senior League. This game was spoiled by the atrocious conditions and things were not helped by an over fussy referee. Crossmolina led by 0-5 to 0-4 at halftime with Davitts scores coming from Josh Ronayne, Ronan McNamara, Keith Prendergast and Aidan McTigue. Davitts took the lead with twenty minutes remaining when Liam Kearns got on the end of a good move to blast to the net. Crossmolina swiftly replied and tagged on five unanswered points to go four up.
Davitts thought they had narrowed the gap to one when Josh Ronayne goaled with five minutes remaining, after a great passing movement, but a very vigilant umpire disallowed it, signalling that the ball had gone out of play over the endline earlier on in the move. To compound Davitts woes, Cross came up the field and scored a most fortuitous goal as an attempt to punch a ball over the bar ended up in the Davitts net.
Davitts best players were David Mitchell, Pat Coyne, Michael Ronayne, the outstanding Ronan McNamara and Aidan McTigue.
