Carrick Grammar win the Schools Cup first round match against near neighbours Larne Grammar on Saturday morning.

Our old alma mater, Larne Grammar, slipped out of the Schools Cup on Saturday morning with arch enemies Carrick Grammar taking the honours in this first round match.

It was a remarkable reversal for Carrick who shipped 42 points the last time these two teams met in October, a result that probably accounted for Larne’s slow start.

Carrick enjoyed the best of the first half picking up their points from two Ethan Law penalties plus a Levi Cave try with Law adding the extras.

Larne also crossed in the first half with Beni Tasnadi getting the score which was converted by Robin Wynn to give Carrick a 7 -13 win in very windy conditions.

An early score in the second half from Carrick’s Tom Kennedy, set Larne a daunting target as they now trailed 7 – 20. The home side respond with a Jayden Martlew try, converted by Wynn to make it a one score game with over 10 minutes remaining.
