Local lads help Inst to victory

Congratulations to RBAI’s four Banbridge District players and also to coach Daniel Soper who have helped their side to Schools’ Cup victory.

The Inst lads secured a 14-10 victory over Wallace High School with Dromore’s TJ Morris converting both tries to secure the win.

Wallace had secured the early advantage thanks to a try by Connor Guiney but the conversion was missed and Inst rallied back to claim the half-time lead.

Lewis McNamara touched down for RBAI and then former Dromore RFC lad TJ added the extras from the conversion. That helped to make up for two early missed penalties by the kicker.

Just before the break, Wallace missed a good chance to get their second try after a line-out in the corner but couldn’t get the ball over the line.

Nonetheless, Trouton put Wallace back into the lead with another unconverted try.

That was to be as good as it got for the Lisburn lads and Jack Conlin ran in another score for Inst. Morris again added the extras to seal victory.
