Saturday1st March Ballymena back in the groove
Ballymena had things pretty much their own way in the first half in this AIL game against Seapoint , but all they had to show for it at the break was threee David O'Hara penalties. That 9-0 lead was soon wiped out by Seapoint who scored two converted tries to give them a 14-9 lead. A drive and a touchdown by Andy Warwick brought the scores level, and a more purposeful Ballymena side went on to score two tries, the first by O'Hara after a break by Ricky Andrew, and the second by Marty Irwin after a powerful midfield burst by Paddy James. No bonus point, but results elsewhere meant that Ballymena move to third in the table.
