Semi-Final success

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 16.18.29Facebook_like_thumbOn Saturday 21st February the ‘P Keenan Road Surfacing’ sponsored Rainey ES 1st XV hosted Foyle College in the Semi-Finals of the Danske Bank Ulster Schools Bowl.

Unfortunately, Rainey started the game in familiar fashion going behind to a soft try within the first minute. Foyle converted this to go 7 points up.

With Andrew Brown and Lorcan Quinn causing problems for the opposition Rainey enjoyed territorial advantage. Read the rest of this entry »
