On Saturday 18th February Ballymoney 3rd XI played Rainey 2nd XI at the Joey Dunlop Centre with the match ending 3-0 in favour of Rainey.

Both teams came out strongly however Ballymoney’s defence were caught out late in the first half by a shot from the top of the circle off a Rainey stick, leaving the score 1-0 at half time.

The second half saw Ballymoney come out fighting however right forward Lauren Mitchell was unlucky to convert any break aways.

Unfortunately Ballymoney were unable to deny a very experienced and agressive Rainey side of any more goals despite the solid efforts of their goal keeper Jill Huey and captain Lisa Burns.
