U-21’s qualify for County B Quarter Final
Davitts booked their passage to the county U-21 B Championship quarter final with a hard earned 2-15 to 0-14 victory over a gallant Round Towers side in a game played in perfect conditions in Ballindine on Tuesday evening. Davitts, lining out without Fergal McGrath and Clive Hennigan, and losing influential team captain Keith Prendergast with a hamstring injury at the start of the second half, led by a point, 0-9 to 0-8 at halftime. Two fine second half goals by Richie Kilkenny and the outstanding Johnno Clarke settled the contest as those two players, Liam Kearns, Tommy Mitchell and Kevin Gallagher upped their performances considerably. Others to shine were Prendergast, Josh Ronayne, goalkeeper David Mitchell, Darren Connolly and young Gerard McWalter.
