U-14’s v Charlestown – Match Report

Davitts U-14’s maintained their 100% winning record in the League with an impressive 6-11 to 3-6 away victory against the previously unbeaten Charlestown on Thursday evening. Once again the Davitts boys, much smaller than their opponents in most positions on the field, produced some sparkling attacking football, especially in the first half, and had raced into a 4-8 to 0-3 at the interval. Jack Trench, Jack Devane, Niall Treacy and Zack Keadin had scored the goals with Sean Feerick (2), Jack Devane (3) and Jack Trench (3) pointing.

Charlestown staged a second half revival but Davitts remained composed and the deadly Jack Trench tagged on another 2-3 to cap a splendid display.

Gavin Ring was excellent in goals and in front of him Micheal Hett and Brian Og McTigue defended superbly as did the half back line trio of Fionan Gallagher, Thomas Ronayne and Charlie Phillips. Fentan Kelly and Sean Feerick put in powerful displays at midfield. Niall Treacy was involved in everything at centre forward with the dynamic Zack Keadin and Joe Prendergast completing an impressive half forward line. In the corners Davitts had two trump cards (a pair of Jacks) with Jack Devane and Jack Trench in terrific scoring form. Subs Cathal Corless, Davy Hennessy and Brian Birmingham had their moments when introduced in the second half.

Davitts: Gavin Ring, Micheal Hett, Brian Og McTigue, Fionan Gallagher, Thomas Ronayne, Charlie Phillips, Sean Feerick (0-2), Fentan Kelly, Zack Keadin (1-0), Niall Treacy (1-0), Joe Prendergast, Jack Trench (3-6), Jack Devane (1-3). Subs used: Cathal Corless, Davy Hennessy, Brian Birmingham.
