Banbridge U15s went into the game against Grosvenor with high hopes after the impressive 2-1 win away to Friends.

They did not disappoint when they took the lead in the openingfive5 minutes with a Kelvin Nash drag flick. In the following 10 minutes Mark McCullough added two more to the score line with two well worked team goals.

Before the end of the half Charlie Norris made a tackle inside his own 25 and ran the pitch, then proceeded to smash the ball low into the bottom right hand corner.

After the half it was much of the same with good defensive play from Callum Gibson, Jack Montgomery and Kelvin Nash.

The fifth goal came from some excellent play from Jay Brackenbury down the right who slotted it to Joel Reid who finished cooly. Bann finished the game strong and Isaac Black added another before the final whistle. A good performance from the 15s.

Banbridge got off to a flying start winning several short corners and Barlow scoring a rocket drag-flick into the roof of the net.

On the other hand, Sullivan had several chances to score but thanks to strong tackling at the back and a few good saves from Dale held them back.

In the end, from a hockey point of view Banbridge were the better side but Sullivan made the most of their chances and came out victorious.
