IN this weekend's Ballymena United Youth Academy round-up there was a morale boosting win for the Under-15's and plenty of goals for all teams!
The in-form Under-14's almost forged a comeback against Sion Swifts but gave themselves a mountain to climb after going three goals down.
Jonny Hume's National League Under-12 team played their first home game in the town since October and Tyreese McDowell, Mark McClean and Michael Leetch were all amongst the goalscorers against Ballymoney United at Lamont Playing Fields on Saturday morning.
Under-17's 0
Knockbreda 5
JOE McCall's Under-17's suffered a miserable Friday night at the rain-swept Showgrounds as they went down by five goals without reply to Knockbreda in the NIBFA National League clash.
The lads must pick themselves up and will go again at the same time next week as they welcome Bright Stars to the Showgrounds.
Under-15's 4
Ards Academy 1
THE Under-15's came into the weekend looking to bounce back from their heavy defeat to local rivals Carniny the previous Saturday with the visit of Ards to the Showgrounds.
The game kicked off with Ballymena attacking in the opening minutes. Max Davidson's driving runs from the centre of midfield causing plenty of problems for the away side. It wasn't long before the game's first controversial moment, when Davidson committed a rash tackle and the Ards player retaliated by lashing out, however the referee didn't see and unable to make a decision on the off-the-ball incident.
