U-16s v Swinford – Match Report
Davitts U-16 team got their League campaign off to a flying start when overpowering Swinford by 4-17 to 2-8 in Ballindine on Sunday. Davitts inflicted most of the damage on the visitors in the opening half as they led by 3-11 to 0-1 at the interval. Midfielder Cian Naughton gave a man of the match performance and he helped himself to a personal tally of 3-8 from his midfield role. This was however by no means a one man show as the whole team played superbly, especially in the first half. The goalie Shane Cummins had a very solid defence in front of him led by the excellent Dimitri Trench at centre half back. Oisin O Connor and Takeshi Kilkenny were tight in the full back line while wing backs Jordan Flanagan and David Devane defended well as well as scoring a point apiece, two of the game’s best scores. Niall Kearns got through an amount of work at midfield alongside Naughton, and he chipped in with two fine points for good measure. The Davitts attack linked well with Dean Moran (1-3) in top form at centre half forward. James Ruane (0-1), Stephen Nyland (0-1), Niall Treacy (0-1) and Shane Waldron worked tremendously hard all through the game as did substitutes Fenton Kelly and Conor Walsh when introduced.
