Ballymoney won their first ever Powerade Towns Cup in an exciting finish at Ravenhill on Easter Monday.

Clogher Valley certainly looked firm favourites after only conceding one try against a gusting wind in the first half and when the Valley scored early in the second half it looked all over for the Co. Antrim side.

However with minutes to go a period of sustained pressure on the Clogher line saw Johnny Hanna force his way over for the winning score.

Both sides played a conservative game in the first half with neither side moving the ball much past their halfbacks. Ballymoney controlled the territory playing with a strong wind at their back but Clogher defended exceptionally well and dominated the rucks. Eventually the pressure told and Ballymoney got a breakthrough with  Jason Taggart powering over the line for the opening score late in the first half taking the score to 0 – 5.

 

Clogher used the wind well at the start of the second half and pinned Ballymoney . . .
