This game was decided by a last-minute try from visitors Cooke after a see-saw battle in which Bann created enough chances to secure the win. Certainly the home side dominated the opening 20 minutes with Cooke making only fleeting excursions out of their own half. Cameron Cromie’s break in the 7th minute carved open the visitors’ defence and centre Andrew Sleator carried on the move. He then drew the full-back and fed his out-half with the return inside pass which put Cromie in under the posts, a drop kick from the same player adding the extras and Bann were up-and-running.

BALLYMENA U-16s 29 BANN U-16S 14

After opening their league campaign with a comprehensive win over Randalstown, Bann’s Under-16 side travelled to meet much tougher opposition at Ballymena. They eventually had to concede defeat to a bigger side, but not before they had shown great qualities of spirit and resilience, battling back after conceding three first half tries to reduce the deficit to 17-14.
