The boys started off well with the game being played in the Grammar half, The boys were applying loads of pressure but the Grammar defense was dogged and stood firm against a lot of pressure being applied by the Mackie boys. The Grammar line finally broke and Mackie were up 5 nil. The play continued the same with Mackie spurring several opportunities to score due to handling errors and lack of ball retention, and basically trying to hard and forcing the game too much. The second half was much better the boys were starting to get the rewards for the hard work that they had put in. Grammar only had one real attacking chance which was dealt with by some last ditch defending by Mackie.
