U-14’s capture South Mayo U-14 ‘A’ Title
Davitts 2-9 | Claremorris 1-7
Davitts captured the South Mayo U-14 A Title with a hard fought but well deserved victory over Claremorris in Hollymount on Thursday evening. Claremorris opened the scoring with a point but a cracking Niall Kearns goal settled his side’s early nerves. The exchanges were tight throughout the first half but Davitts went in 1-4 to 0-3 ahead at halftime. Jordan Flanagan, Stephen Nyland, Shane Waldron and Dimitri Trench were Davitts pointscorers.
Claremorris came out with all guns blazing in the second half and and an early goal and point had them level after two minutes and when they took the lead a few minutes later it looked bleak for Davitts. They showed great bottle however and Stephen Nyland goaled after great work by Flanagan and Niall Treacy to put them ahead again. They added points from Flanagan, Shane Waldron, David Devane and a Nyland brace to run out winners after a very entertaining contest.
Davitts had heroes throughout the field with goalie James Quinn, Cian Naughton, Takeshi Kilkenny, Dimitri Trench (0-1), David Devane (0-1), Niall Kearns (1-0), Shane Waldron (0-2), Jordan Flanagan (0-2), Niall Treacy and Stephen Nyland (1-3) all excelling. Oisin O Connor, Gary Bourke, Shane Cummins, Colin Mulligan and Daniel Corless put in solid shifts helped by subs Conor Walsh, Jason Huane, Zack Keadin and Aidan Cosgrove.
Well done to all the lads and their managers John Treacy, Anthony Hennelly, Brendan Kilkenny, Fergal Tuohy, Derek Byrne and Peter Kearns.
