In the Trophy final, Dromore came from 10-7 behind to defeat Limavady Grammar 14-10.

John McMichael opened the scoring for Limavady with a try, James Howe converting.

Dromore’s Josh Patterson then crossed for a try, converted by Rhys Dale.

But Limavady went into the interval 10-7 ahead after a Howe penalty.

The keenly contested final continued but there was only one score in the second half.

Sam Farley crossed for a try and Dale converted to give Dromore the honours.
