U-16’s cruise through to League Final

Davitts qualified for the County U-16 Division 4 League Final with a resounding 1-15 to 0-3 victory over Louisburgh in Ballindine on Saturday. Davitts dominated this game from start to finish and raced into a 0-10 to 0-0 lead at half time after playing with the assistance of the tricky wind. The homeside never took their foot off the pedal and the games only goal came 5 minutes into the second half. Jack Rodgers started off a move in his own backline that involved Mikey Devane, Seanie Burke and Cathal Hennelly, before the outstanding Evan Ronayne goaled superbly to effectively finish the game as a contest.

Thomas Monaghan was very reliable in goals and dealt well with anything that came his way while in front of him the two Dylans, Higgins and Keadin, were absolutely superb from start to finish. Seanie Burke, Michael Mangan and Denis Og Fahy formed a tremendous halfbackline while Padraig Mangan and Jack Rodgers controlled the midfield area throughout. The movement in the forwardline was excellent as Mikey Devane, Cathal Hennelly, Evan Ronayne, Shane Treacy and sub Jamie Mullee all impressed while Gerald Griffin gave a man of the match performance.
