U-21’s v Kiltimagh – Match Report
Davitts got their County U-21 Championship campaign off to a winning start with an impressive 7-12 to 0-5 victory over Kiltimagh at sun-drenched Ballindine on Tuesday evening. Davitts will realise that more difficult assignments lie ahead and that this was a game that everything went right for them. David Mitchell was ultra-safe in goals while the defence looked mean and tigerish. Josh Ronayne and Michael Waldron dominated the midfield exchanges and the attack looked razor sharp throughout.
Davitts led by 4-4 to 0-2 at half time with team captain Josh Ronayne supplying a hat-trick of goals with the very impressive Andrew Peters scoring the fourth from the penalty spot. Three further goals followed in the second period via Darren Connolly, Peters and sub Gerard McWalter as Davitts maintained a blistering pace and intensity. Five subs were introduced and each one of them impressed.
