U-14’s overwhelm St. Gerards to win South B Title
Davitts captured the South Mayo U-14 B title, with an excellent 4-11 to 2-4 victory over St.Gerards in the final played in Garrymore on Wednesday evening. Shane Treacy opened the scoring in the 13th minute but St. Gerards replied with an unanswered 1-2 in the next five minutes. Davitts then began to play some great football and scores from Michael Mangan (1-2), Jack Rodgers (1-0), Gerard Griffin (0-1), Richie Connor (0-1) and Cathal Hennelly (0-1) had Davitts ahead, 2-6 to 1-2 at halftime.
Davitts added two more goals in the second half, the first a fine individual effort from Treacy and the second, the score of the game with Mikey Devane finishing superbly after a great move started by Denis Fahy and involving Griffin, Hennelly and Connor. Points by Hennelly (3), Treacy and Padraig Mangan completed the Davitts scoring, rounding off a tremendous team display.
Team captain Thomas Monaghan proved a competent goalkeeper while in defence Dylan Higgins, Denis Fahy, Dylan Keadian, Seanie Bourke and Michael Mangan were in terrific form. Padraig Mangan and Jack Rodgers controlled the midfield sector, while in attack, Mikey Devane, Cathal Hennelly (who had a massive second half), Shane Treacy and Richie Connor all played starring roles but the dynamic Gerard Griffin’s all action display, would have made him man of the match in most people’s eyes. Substitutes, Kelan Cosgrove, Francis Griffin, Lorcan Diskin and Aaron Naughton all played their part in a great victory for the club. Well done boys.
