IT was a mixed bag of results for the Ballymena teams last week.

Ballymena A's results included an easy PGL quarter-final Senior Cup victory over Larne A, and two Division 1 League successes at home to Falls A and Ulster Transport A.

Ballymena B started off the week with a superb 6 points at Downpatrick but then capitulated with a 63 point loss to Division 1 kingpins Dunbarton A in the PGL Senior Cup and a 6 points loss to Salisbury in Division 2 on Saturday.

Ballymena C travelled to Ulster Transport B on Saturday and did well to collect 2 points off the League leaders.

Last Wednesday night Ballymena mid-week only managed 1 point in its match at home to Mossley, but the Veterans 1 team were in brilliant form last Monday collecting 8 points from League leaders Whitehead 1.

The Vets 2 team fared less better going down 6-4 to Whitehead 2.

However the combined Vets team pulled off an overall 2 points victory over Forth River in the quarter-final of the NI Knockout Cup.

Roy Torrington moved into the last four of the NI Vets singles along with Robert McCready and Jimmy Cameron in the Pairs competition.

But Artie McAuley, Liam Lyness and John McFall went out in the Triples to Old Bleach.
