On a very murky day, Larne 3rds hosted Banbridge 5ths in the opening round of McCambley Cup at the Glynn playing fields.

The match started late but in an evenly matched first half, the visitors took the lead when their No 7, Stephen Patterson, forced his way over the line with fullback, Jordan Mullan converting the try.

The home team then got going and it was No 13, who outpaced the defence to score under the posts with No 10, Callum McKay successfully adding the conversion.

The second half was a much more dominant by Larne but with both teams missing penalty chances, it was midway through the half before the home team took the lead with the forwards driving home under the posts, again successfully converted by No 10, McKay.

With the light disappearing rapidly, Banbridge began to press and near the full time whistle, it was Banbridge who worked their way over for a try, unfortunately the conversion was not successful and the home team held on for a hard won victory.

Full time. Larne 14 Banbridge 12
