0 minutes, 59 seconds Read

On Saturday Armagh made the long journey to the very windy town of
Ballymoney, for what was a must win game for the young side.

With yet more changes in personnel the team started brightly with Matty
Campbell carrying very well along with John Fletcher and Alex Sterrit. The
first score came after only 5 minutes when the ball was moved through the
backline to captain Chris Wallace who broke the line and fed Rab Straghan
who dotted down under the posts. Knipe converted.

Armagh continued to dominate their counterparts with strong carrying and
defence from James Knox, Jason McMahon and Liam McElroy. With 2 scores
coming from Mark Allen, and scores from Wallace, Campbell and Knox. The
last act of the first half was Knipe slotting a penalty from the half way
line judging the wind to perfection.

The second half started differently with Armagh falling asleep and conceding
2 soft tries. With renewed vigour Armagh turned this around and scored
another try through a driving maul in the top corner.

Overall it was a very positive performance from a young side with an average
age of 22. Hopefully it will be the start of an impressive run of
