Ballyclare travelled to a sunny Gibson Park yesterday to play Grosvenor in a Kukri Championship Division 1 League game.

The visitors started in determined fashion with Michael Kirk crashing over in the corner for an unconverted try in the opening minutes.

Grosvenor responded and camped on the Ballyclare line, but, following a break out, Stuart Cusack touched down in the opposite corner for another unconverted try.

On the stroke of half time Joel McBride converted a penalty goal to increase Ballyclare’s lead to 13 – 0.

The second half was much more evenly matched with play fluctuating between both halves.

Aaron Playfair increased Ballyclare’s lead with an unconverted try mid way through the half before Grosvenor pulled one back when Peter Davidson got in for an unconverted try in the corner.

Try though as they might Grosvenor couldn’t score again, as they went in search of a losing bonus point, leaving Ballyclare worthy winners 5 – 18.
