Tourmakeady v Davitts – Minor League
Davitts minor team recorded a morale boosting victory on Friday evening, when they travelled to Tourmakeady and defeated the home side by 4-15 to 0-5, in a rather one sided league encounter. A determined Davitts side took control of the proceedings from the throw in, with midfielders Josh Ronayne and Michael Waldron dictating matters, and at half time Davitts led by 2-9 to 0-2, David Hyland the two goal hero with two emphatic finishes. The second half followed on the same lines and Davitts ran out easy winners.
David Mitchell was confident in goals and the corner backs, Tommy Heneghan and Tommy Ruddock rarely put a foot wrong all evening. Mark Ronayne and Dara Halligan, the wing backs, excelled both defensively and in an attacking sense. In a lively forward line, Hyland, Jason Connolly, Darren Connolly and Clive Hennigan, a young player with enormous potential, all played very well.
