Davitts U-14 team got their league campaign back on track in Ballindine on Thursday, defeating Kilmeena 5-9 to 4-10 in a cracking game. Two early Davitts goals by Richie Connor and Cathal Hennelly suggested that Davitts might have things easy, but nothing could be further from the truth as Kilmeena stormed back into the game and led by 2-7 to 2-3 at halftime. Davitts enjoyed a profitable third quarter of this seesawing game and goals from Hennelly and Shane Treacy put them six points up before Kilmeena again fought back to get within a point of the homeside but Hennelly had the final say with the last point of this very entertaining game.
Thomas Monaghan made a few crucial saves in goals while Dylan Keadin and Michael Mangan excelled in defence with good support from Dylan Higgins, Denis Og Fahy, Lorcan Diskin and Keelan Cosgrove. Padraig Mangan (0-2) and Jack Rogers (0-1) secured plenty of possession at midfield. Cathal Hennelly (3-2) led the forwardline well with Gerard Griffin and Shane Treacy (1-0) very busy on the wings and Sean Bourke (0-2) and Richie Connor (1-2) in top form up front.
