Seconds run in fifteen tries in one-sided game thumbnailMatthew Blair adds his name to the long list of Ballymoney try scorers.

BALLYMONEY Seconds showed their class at the weekend as they ran in fifteen unanswered tries against a lacklustre Enniskillen side to win 99-7.
It was Allan who made inroads to the Enniskillen line in the first minute. From a break at the scrum, the ball was moved wide and from the ruck five metres from the touch line, scrum half Steele spotted a gap in defence to break blind and run in from thirty metres. The conversation went wide (0-5).
Enniskillen went through a number of phases on the half-way line but any turnover was punished as Ballymoney were able to kick long with the strong wind in their back. Strong runs from forwards Blair, Clyde and Allan allowed Ballymoney to attack the Enniskillen line which resulted in Blair crashing over for a score. The conversation was successful to extend the lead to 0-12.
Straight away a break from Nat Steele took play inside the Enniskillen '22' and the ball was moved through the backs for McCrea to come in off his wing and cut through the defence for the third try, and with the conversion from Cleland successful, the score was now 0-19.
The bonus point try came soon after when second row Alfie Clyde showed great pace to round the winger and score below the posts. Again, the conversion was on target and Ballymoney had now secured the bonus point and led by twenty six points.
