Hockey: Ballyclare High School’s under-14s won the Junior Trophy after they defeated Royal School, Armagh 3-1 in the final at Friends on Tuesday.

Rebecca McCullough was the star of the show, scoring two of her team’s goals.

The Ballyclare girls set the tone and blazed into a 2-0 lead. Kiely Hurst landed the opener from a penalty corner rebound with just six minutes on the clock before McCullough doubled their advantage.

Armagh reduced the deficit when Phoebe Todd found the net, giving her side hope going into the second half.

But Ballyclare asserted their authority and McCullough sealed the win with a third.
