In contrast , Coleraine looked to pick up points in their limited incursions into the Wallace red zone with Caskey landing a penalty before Cameron Leighton sliced through midfield for their second try, this one under the posts.
Caskey added the extras to give the Coleraine a 17 – 0 lead at the break.
Wallace went over for their only score early in the second half with Carter McCluskey hitting the line after a period of sustained pressure. The try was converted making it a 10 point game.
However, as both sides swapped out their players it was Coleraine who dominated with No 2 Shaw Fleck and No 12 Tom Curry both scoring, after impressive runs, to wrap up the game.
