Despite Malone being buoyed by their 1st XV’s win against Galwegians Women in the Energia AIL, the night before, the visitors found Carrick too hot to handle in this one.
Carrick wrapped the game up with two first half converted tries and found their way over the line for their third in the second half making it four wins from four in the Championship.
The result leaves Carrick a point ahead of Belfast Harlequins though the Belfast side have a game in hand.
With both Carrick and Quins due to meet in the Quarter Final of the Junior Cup and in the last fixture of this league it’s looking like the two table toppers will be getting to know each other pretty well in the coming months.
