There were huge celebrations for the West Down Junior team earlier this month.

They won the IIBA Junior Interzone Plate thanks to an outstanding campaign, cilminating in a final win over Northern at the Jim Baker stadium in Templepatrick.

The team had a great start against North West C, defeating their opponents convincingly 21-12.

Despite their best efforts, the second game against Western appeared too tough as they lost 7-21. However, in true champion’s fashion, the West Down team recovered well and went all the way to the final of the plate competition, defeating South Down and Mid Tyrone.

In the final game, the Juniors raced ahead to defeat Northern and become IIBA Junior Interzone Plate Champions 2016. Well done to all involved.

The juniors involved on the day included Dylan Crookshanks, Thomas Cowan, Oran Breen, Aidan Magennis, Sam Whyte, Jack Kidd, Luke Donaldson, Lara Rainey, Farren Bolton, Chloe Wilson and Ragav Gupta.
