Gregg will hope victorious Dalriada can cut out errors

Limavady GS 5-13 Dalriada School

Limavady produced a determined first-half effort but the strength of Dalriada School proved the difference in the end, the latter running out 13-5 winners.

It was Limavady who led at the halfway stage after No.8 David Brown got over in the corner.

Dalriada coach Rab Gregg stated: "In the first half we kept dropping the ball and it was mistake after mistake. Eventually we settled and a penalty by second row forward Paddy Elliott renewed our confidence.

"We started to combine better and took the lead with a Scott Gamble try."

The final try came following a quickly taken penalty and centre Thomas Hunter broke a tackle and dashed in from 20 metres. They face Ballymena Academy in the fourth round.

Chris Nash, the Limavady coach, added: "It was a tight game with both teams strong in defence but we should have been more than five points ahead at half-time.

"There were a few forward passes and a charge down but maybe the boys were a bit too keen. Jim McCartney was a danger and captain and scrum-half Rohan Mulligan gave his all."
