IN great conditions for open rugby, Rainey Old Boys U18s continued their dominance of the Ulster Carpets North U18 league with a straightforward 62-0 win over Ballymoney U18s.  For the second week in a row, they scored 10 tries as they completely dominated the proceedings.




Second row Molloy opened the scoring after 6 mins when, following good rucking from the forwards, the ball was moved out the backs and he had an easy run in. Following a scrum on the half-way, Winger Layden added a second after good work by Totten and O’Neill.  Fullback Scullion added a third after Molloy and Clarke had made good ground down the middle of the park, and O’Neill made it four, crossing just left of the posts following a quick tap penalty from scrum-half Young and carries by Clarke and Kearns.  Ballymoney then had their best spell of the match, spending the remainder of the first period in Rainey’s half, but good defence ensured they never troubled the Rainey line.  With two of the four tries having been converted by Kearns, the first half finished with Rainey ahead by 24-0.

After a long break, Rainey OB U18s resumed their league campaign with a win over county rivals City of Derry.  Leading comfortably at half-time, they had effectively wrapped up the game by the final quarter, but were forced to absorb a lot of Derry pressure before eventually running out 32-10 winners.
