The mighty Larne took a bit of a beating from Grosvenor on Saturday afternoon in this Junior Cup quarter final match at the Glynn.
Larne were missing a couple of key players and Grosvenor had a few back from the last time we covered them and that made all the difference as the visitors romped to a 5 – 52 win.
Despite the score line Larne did have quite a few periods of sustained possession and pressure but they were unable to break the solid Grosvenor defence. The visitors, in contrast, made every piece of possession count as they ran in eight tries with six converted.
The Grosvenor tries came from Peter Davison, Jos McConkey (2), Stuart McIlwaine (3), Shane Johnston and Adam Skelton, Allen McCluggage added the conversions.
Larne’s score came from Jonny Hall.
