Lurgan and Portadown Colleges met in the Schools Trophy Final at Banbridge Academy on a sunny Saturday morning.

Portadown had the better of the opening exchanges keeping Lurgan pinned in their own half, however the Lurgan defence worked overtime to keep their line intact and a break out 10 minutes in was rewarded with a successful penalty from centre Peter Bird. Bird landed a second penalty five minutes later to give Lurgan a 6 – 0 lead.

Lurgan’s Peter Bird send over an early penalty, his kicking from the tee proving to be the difference between the two sides.

Portadown finally got some reward for their work three minutes later when a break by their hooker was finished off by their second row Scott Craig and converted by Adam Neill to give Portadown a 7 . . .
