Good form continues at Portadown

Bangor claimed another big league scalp at Portadown where they produced an excellent team performance to secure a bonus point win by 22-27.

With the only change from last week’s winning line-up against Clogher Valley being Oran McIlmurry – still recovering from a nasty blow to the head – hopes were high that the disappointments of last season’s encounters could be overcome. For Portadown’s part, they were anxious to keep up the pressure on Instonians at the top of the table – hence the scene was set for a fascinating game with much at stake for all concerned.

The opening skirmishes were cagey affairs, with both sides sizing up their opposite numbers, but it was Bangor who had the initial territorial advantage. Rucks were being keenly contested, but after 8 minutes an over-zealous attempt by the Portadown scrum half to get the ball back with his boot resulted in a Bangor penalty in front of the posts. The kicking opportunity was successfully taken by Mark Thompson, giving Bangor an early 0-3 lead. See mote at :-
