Dromore High School vs Ballynahinch High School U/16 Final

16th April 2013

This years campaign started in October 2012 with TJ Morris lifting the Pollock Cup continuing Dromore’s dominance in the competition winning the Cup for the 10th year in a row.

We had excellent fixtures throughout the year to get us ready for this years U/16 competition by playing against very strong Grammar schools 2nd and 3rd fifteen teams.

We had great victories against Banbridge Academy, Down High, Grosvenor and RS Armagh.

Our first big opposition was in the ¼ final when we played Downshire, and we knew this will be a big test for us, remembering this was the school who knocked us out last year in the 2nd Round. We were drawn away to Downshire  and I know that if we played to our potential we can walk away with a good victory.

Preparations were very good and the commitment of the boys during training could tell that we were ready for this game.

My theory was confirmed and we played excellent Rugby scoring 6 brilliant tries against a very good Downshire Team. Final score 39-5

Semi-Final was against Ballymoney and we were delighted to have a home draw. Boys worked very hard and with a few new calls that we worked on during the 2 weeks, I knew our boys were ready and up for the challenge.

Our play in the first 25 minutes was untouchable; we did exactly what we talked about doing in our build up to the game, and robbed Ballymoney of any hope. It was an excellent team performance and a great victory.

The final at Ravenhill, something to savor and it is a fantastic reward for school boys to play on the same pitch as the professionals whom they wish to emulate.

Good luck boys, you deserve to be there especially with all the hard work you guys put in throughout the season. Thanks for all the parents who dropped of the boys in the mornings early and picked up again in the afternoon.
