A last minute penalty secured the win for Dromore High in this seesaw game at Barban Hill on Saturday morning.

The home side dominated the bulk of the first half but were unable to break down the micro managed Grosvenor defence until Caleb Harper crossed towards the end of the first quarter. Rhys Dale converted.

Grosvenor came more into the game in the second quarter and got their reward when Izzy Young broke through the Dromore defence to score close to the posts. Adam Moore converted and the teams turned round with the score tied at 7 all.

The tit for tat scoring continued in the second  half with Cameron Owens and Harper scoring for Dromore and James McMaster and Josh Patterson replying for Grosvenor. Both Dale and Moore converted their teams tries leaving the score at 21 all as the game went into the final minutes.

However, it was Rhys Dale who stepped up at the end to land the winning penalty for Dromore, the home side recording a 24 – 21 win.
