Omagh Academy hosted a four team tournament featuring Foyle and Londonderry College, Portora Royal School, Sullivan Upper School alongside the host school. Each team used extended squads and played three twenty minute games. Omagh opened up with a 15-0 win against the Foyle College team with tries coming from Matthew Clyde, who touched down twice, and Andrew Newell. The Omagh team then played Sullivan Upper in a game which, despite the positive intentions of all the players involved, saw both defences come out on top and finished as a 0-0 draw. Next up for the home team was the Portora RS team and it was the opportunity for a number of young players such as Glenn McKinley, Troy Booth, Jordan Brolly, Taine Lagan and Scott Ballantine to impress. However, it was left to the experienced Matthew Clyde to score the only Omagh Academy try of this game. The Portora RS team, having drawn 0-0 with Sullivan Upper and lost by 5-0 against Foyle College, secured a 7-5 against the Omagh team in the final game when Conor Keys touched down for a try which he then converted. All four teams thoroughly enjoyed the tournament and would like to thank Ross Hunter and his staff at Omagh Academy for organising the event.
