U-14’s v Ballinrobe – Match Report
Davitts and Ballinrobe met in Claremorris on Tuesday evening in an U-14 League play-off and Davitts reversed the earlier league result when winning by 5-12 to 4-7 after a cracking match. The first half was very tight and nothing separated the sides at the break and they went in level, 2-3 each. Davitts goals were converted emphatically by Ryan McLoughlin, while Jack Ronayne accounted for the three points.
Again in the second half the two teams were evenly matched and it was only in the last five minutes that Davitts put some daylight between themselves and the gallant Ballinrobe lads. Indeed were it not for a few super saves by goalkeeper James Corless, the result might have gone the other way. Another McLoughlin goal, one from Thomas Corless, two super points from Caelainn Mullee, a Liam Macken point and a magnificent 1-5 from Ronayne accounted for Davitts second half scores.
As well as all of those already mentioned Davitts had other fine displays from Niall Kearns, Jordan Flanagan, Aidan Macken, Ciaran Fahy, Dimitri Trench, Shane Cummins, Cian Treacy and Cian Naughton.
