Saturday 29th September 2018. Larne RFC record a memorable 31 - 22 win against local rivals Carrick RFC in the second round of the Ulster Junior Cup.

Larne RFC recorded a memorable Junior Cup win against, their local rivals, Carrickfergus RFC at the Glynn playing fields on Saturday afternoon.

Larne progress to the third round draw by virtue of their 31 – 22 victory and there won’t be many teams relishing a trip to Fortress Glynn when the draw is made.

The home side played the smarter rugby throughout the game, taking points in nearly every visit to the Carrick half. The points came from tries from Jonny Ogilby (2), Aaron McBride and Jordan Burns with Philip Andrews keeping the scoreboard ticking over with three penalties and two conversions.

A somewhat lackluster Carrick responded through David Carse, converted by Adam White, in the first half but despite going over for a driving maul they didn’t really hit their straps until the closing minutes when late tries from Ross Crymble and Ryan McGonigle added a touch of gloss to the final score.

Final score: Larne 31 Carrick 22
