Northern Ireland boys win Victory Shield

Northern Ireland 2-1 Wales

Northern Ireland's Under 15 schoolboys' team have won the Victory Shield for the first time.

They beat Wales in a dramatic finish at Ballymena Showgrounds on Friday night.

Wales were leading 1-0 with just a few minutes left and that would have been enough to give them the trophy outright.

Their goal was scored on 55 minutes by Rys Carpenter who followed up well after keeper Lee Windrum has blocked his first shot.

But Northern Ireland staged a remarkable revival in the closing stages.

First, skipper Sammy Morrow fired in a free-kick from the edge of the penalty area.

Then, in the third minute of injury-time, Christopher Kingsberry got the trophy-clinching winner.

Ballyclare Comrades 1-1 Larne

Honours were even in the east Antrim derby at Dixon Park.

Eddie Hill's fifth minute goal gave Ballyclare Comrades the lead.

Hill squeezed a shot in from an acute angle, beating the valiant dive of Larne keeper Gavin Cushley.

It was Hill's fifth goal of the season and gave the Comrades a surprise advantage.

They are currently one off the bottom of the First Division having won only two league games this season.

Larne, on the other hand, had enjoyed a decent run, and went into this game unbeaten in their last five league outings.

They grabbed a point in the last minute when substitute Neil Candlish ran through to equalise.
