Seniors v Knockmore – Match Report
Davitts hosted Knockmore in the first round of the Michael Walsh Senior League in Ballindine on Saturday evening with the sides sharing the spoils in a well contested match. Davitts elected to play with the strong wind in the first half and, thanks to a storming display at midfield by team captain Ronan McNamara, led by four points as the first half entered injury time but a late Knockmore surge yielded a goal and a point to leave the sides level at the break, 0-6 to 1-3.
The Davitts team showed tremendous spirit in the second half with Kevin Gallagher, showing a welcome return to form, Michael Waldron, James Cummins and Michael Ronayne starring in defence, and McNamara, Keith Prendergast and Aidan McTigue inspirational, as the home side fought hard for every ball in a heart warming display. A pressure free kick by Liam Kearns with the last kick of this entertaining game earned a gallant Davitts team a deserved draw.
