U-14’s v Ardmoy – League Semi Final – Match Report
Davitts U-16 team qualified for the County Div 4 League Final in emphatic style after defeating Ardmoy by 5-16 to 1-4 in the semi-final in Ballindine on Tuesday evening. The result was never in doubt and Ardmoy were unlucky to encounter this Davitts team, playing on top of their game. Denis Fahy, John Kilkenny, Patrick Keadin, Evan Ronayne and Shane Treacy were superb throughout as Davitts raced to a 1-10 to 0-1 lead at halftime, Treacy the goalscorer, after being put through by Daniel Huane. A serious looking arm injury to an Ardmoy midfielder midway through the first half certainly didn’t help their cause.
Davitts were in no mood for relaxing and kept the pressure on the visitors throughout the second half. Further goals from Treacy, Ronayne, Huane and Kilkenny ensured that Davitts qualified for the final. Well done to the whole squad and the team management of JP Kirrane, David Ronayne and Liam Griffin. It would only be fair to mention the performance of the referee Gerard Lohan whose handling of the game was first class.
Davitts team: Caelainn Mullee, Ciaran Fahy, Denis Fahy, John Kilkenny (1-0), Christopher Ryan, Cathal Moran, Jamie Mullee, Patrick Keadin (0-3), Francis Griffin (0-1), Evan Ronayne (1-7), Andrei Trench, Shane Treacy (2-5), Daniel Huane (1-0). Subs used: Lorcan Diskin, Daniel Floss Jones, Kelan Cosgrove, Donal Kirrane.
