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.
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 . . .
