Down High Under 13As clinched a memorable victory at Ballymena Academy with a last gasp try from Jonny Graham. Down got out of the blocks early and scored through centre Reuben Dickson but as in recent weeks the boys in green conceded quickly after and by halftime were trailing 12-5.
A few harsh words at halftime did the trick as Down were a team transformed. They tackled with greater intensity and after some good work by the backs, Aidan McCauley was on hand to score with Luca Walsh adding the extras to make the scores level. Just when it looked as if the match was going to end all square a great run from Matthew Hunter saw quick ball moved to that man Graham who made no mistake. Walsh added the extras from the touchline to complete a fine victory!
The Bs unfortunately lost to a strong Ballymena B team but it was good to see 32 boys willing to make the journey to Ballymena on a Saturday morning.
