Ballyhegan U14 boys kept their impressive start to the league campaign going with a win against local neighbours Naomh Eoin on Tuesday 30 April 2013.

Played in Ballyhegan Park on one of the first good evenings for football it was again the visitors who got off to the perfect start with a goal and a point within the first 5 minutes.  But as in previous games the young Davitts didn’t let their heads drop and with the defence and midfield on top they were able to supply good quality ball into the forward line resulting in a number of excellent scores.  For the remainder of the half they kept the Naomh Eoin chances to a minimum and dominated until half time with the score 5-04 to 1-04 to the Davitts at the break.

The second half was much closer with both sides playing some very good open football and taking some great scores.  Both defences were very much on top in the second half and limited the number of chances to each side, but a more direct style of football gave the Davitts a much deserved win.   Final score Ballyhegan 5-11, Naomh Eoin 1-08.  An all round solid performance from all the players involved who played the game as a team and got their just reward.   Both teams played the game in a very sporting manner and the game as always was excellently refereed by Kevin Gallogly.

Ballyhegan Team: Ryan McCann, Stefan Mackey, Paul McQuade, Rory McLernon, Oisin Hamill, Jack Gallagher, Naoise O’Hagan, Evin Crummie (0-4), Conor Fearon (1-03), James McCann (0-2), James Lee (1-1), Sean Donaghy, Conor Hughes (1-0), Kevin McCann (1-1), Jamie McKenna (1-0), Michael McCann
