U16 Football Championship Division 2 Tinryland V Michael Davitts. Tinryland began the return set of fixtures in the U16 Div2 championship by hosting Michael Davitts on a blustry Friday evening. The home side, playing against the wind started quicky and within a minute had the ball in the Davitts net, blasted in by Evan McGuire who is becoming a goal machine for Tinryland. Jonah Dunne added a point almost from the kick out,before the two teams settled into the game. Michael Davitts pulled the score back with a well worked point but the home attack rolled on as corner forward Cormac O'Brien slotted over to open a gap again. Then powerful midfielder Padraig Thompson drove through the away defence and shot past the Davitts keeper for the second goal of the game. With both teams exchanging scores the first half drew to a close as Tinryland took a strong lead into the break leading 2-5 to 0-3. The second half started in the same fashion as the first with a goal inside the first minute, only this time to the away team as they took the game to Tinryland. But this Tinryland side is made of stern stuff and they quickly moved the ball from defence to attack as centre back Brian McGrath knocked a looping shot over the head of the Davitts keeper into the net for a wonder goal. The home defenders never let their men get into the game as they tracked and tackled hard all evening, led by full back Ben Murphy who won every ball that came near him. This back line provided the team with the possesion to attack upfield with another goal by O'Brien and fine long range points from Maurice Lawler pulling Tinryland further ahead. Another goal for Davitts couldn't get them back close to Tinryland as the home team finished strongly to record a fine win.
