Ballymena Academy Rugby I XV 10 v Wallace High School Rugby I XV 7

1 minute, 9 seconds Read

Ballymena Academy entertained Wallace High School on Saturday morning with both teams missing several players involved with representative squads.
From start to finish, the game was completely dominated by the referee’s whistle, with neither side able to establish any sort of pattern or dominance. Not surprisingly, it was a penalty that led to the opening points of the day. A Wallace player was adjudged to have infringed at the ruck and Darren Geddis made no mistake with his kick. As the first half continued, Ballymena enjoyed more of the possession whereas Wallace probably shaded the territorial advantage. After 25 minutes the Wallace team was awarded another penalty, this time within kicking range, but the kick was just off target.

The half time whistle sounded with the score reading 3 – 0 to the home team. In the second half, Ballymena Academy tried to increase the pace of the game. They established good field position and, after a rare period of continuity, Darren Geddis created a hole for Peter Storey who finished well between the posts. Darren Geddis added the extras to stretch Ballymena’s lead to 10 – 0. The score line stayed like this until the final minute of the match when Wallace were awarded a penalty five metres out from the Ballymena line. They took the penalty quickly and powered over for a try which was converted to leave the final score 10 – 7 to Ballymena Academy.
