Late heartbreak for Ballymoney Fourths thumbnailAndrew Gardner beats his opposite number to secure this lineout ball for Ballymoney

BALLYMENA 4th XV won the McCambley Cup on Saturday following a thrilling extra-time victory over Ballymoney 4th XV at the Kingspan Stadium.
Ballymoney started the game on the front foot with their pack putting plenty of pressure on the Ballymena rearguard, forcing penalties which Ballymoney out-half Cormac McCartney punished with successful goal kicks in the ninth and fifteenth minutes. Ballymena gradually got themselves back into the game and Davy O'Hara got them off the mark with a twenty fourth minute penalty. With neither side really threatening the try line in the second quarter, O'Hara slotted a superbly struck drop goal in the thirty seventh minute to level up the sides at six-all at half-time.
