This derby tie played at the Warren saw local bragging rights go to Portstewart Town.

It looked like going into the break all square until the experienced Colin McAleese gave the Blues the advantage on the stroke of half-time.

It was nip and tuck in the second half as the Portrush youngsters tired. However, bouyed on by a few experienced players in the side, like Andy Todd, Darren Neill and Jack Dallas, they battled on.
