In a tight affair at Kingspan Stadium on Wednesday against Wallace High, MCB scored two late second half tries to run away with the game.

They went in 5-0 at the interval after the pack mauled their way over just on half-time, backrow forward Adam Reid getting the touchdown.

But Wallace kept themselves in with a penalty from outhalf Nathan Doak.

However, another maul try from the pack - Reid again the beneficiary - and a superb try from fullback Ethan McIlroy, secured the victory for Methody.
