Davitt go down in ten goal thriller

Fri, Jan 29, 2016

Having lost a two goal advantage in the opening half when enjoying the favour of the considerable elements, matters looked like they would be very difficult for Convent of Mercy on the resumption, but in a terrific turnaround, they outplayed the Mayo side to clinch the Bank of Ireland FAI Schools Senior Girls Connacht title on Wednesday afternoon in Mervue United.

It all started so well also for the Roscommon outfit, as Grainne White fired them ahead on eight minutes, before setting up the second for Rachel Fitzmaurice to make it 2-0 on the quarter hour mark. Now while generally outplayed in the early stages, Davitt College were producing some rapid counter attacks and after Clare McDonagh was upended in the box on 21 minutes, the striker picked herself up to knock the resulting penalty past Marie Kelly to pull one back.
