U-21 B Championship – Davitts v Kiltimagh
Davitts were at home to Kiltimagh on Wednesday evening in the U-21 B Championship, and were defeated 3-12 to 2-8, in a very entertaining match, which produced some excellent football. After playing against the wind in the opening half, Davitts trailed by 0-6 to 0-5 at the break but ultimately the loss of Keith Glynn, Fergal McGrath and Kieran Mooney to injury, and the unavailability of David Ryan, was to prove too much for this very young side, all of whom will be eligible again next year, and most having two years left at u-21 level.
Michael Waldron, Kevin Gallagher and Tommy Mitchell played very well in defence, John Heneghan and Shane Mitchell won a lot of ball at midfield, while Keith Prendergast led a lively attack well and got good support from Josh Ronayne, Richie Kilkenny and Liam Kearns.
On the evidence of this game Kiltimagh look a very good side and one that will give this championship a right good shot. A minutes silence was observed before the game as a mark of respect for the late Donnacha Geraghty.
Davitts team: Paddy Kirrane, Michael Waldron, Kevin Gallagher, Johnno Clarke, Tommy Mitchell, Laurence Daly, Shane Mitchell, John Heneghan, Josh Ronayne (0-1), Keith Prendergast (0-3), Liam Kearns (1-2), Richie Kilkenny (0-2), John Paul Clarke. Sub used: David Cosgrove (1-0).
