But it wasn’t to be as new Northern Ireland B1 Manager Trevor Whiteside and Chris Carson made sure of an 8 -6 win for the defending champions.

League leaders The Swift defeated Hugh McMurtry’s Cowboys on the same scorline despite new signing Marty Goudie (Cowboys) continuing his fine form with a well taken hat-trick.
