Mark Gordon showed his quality when he scored three tries in Rainey's historic Ulster Senior League defeat of Banbridge at Hatrick Park last night.

It was a memorable evening for Rainey as their new floodlights were in use for the first time, mainly thanks to the hard work of Liam McNally and Ollie McShane.

The wet conditions were far from ideal but the crowd were treated to entertaining rugby with a total of nine tries.

Gavin Martin put Rainey ahead before Peter Stewart took a quick penalty and charged over.

Tommy O'Hagan also helped himself to a try, with Mark O'Connor converting three and Ross McCloskey one.

Adam Doherty scored nine of Bann's points with a try and two conversions, the other score coming from Stephen Irvine.

Rainey's five points see them leapfrog Banbridge.
