Portadown travelled to Ballymoney on Saturday 9 January for their second aquasprint gala of the season. Still recovering from their Christmas Break, Portadown swimmers were feeling a little anxious as Ballymoney had claimed the points in November at the PTL gala against Portadown.
Portadown were made feel very welcome by Ballymoney and the gala got off to a great start with each club winning two relays each. The points were even as the individual races commenced. Portadown A girls were strong in all the individual races, with Amy Johnston taking 1st place in every race. Go Amy!
The atmosphere was great and it was a guessing game as to who was leading when the final relays commenced. Once again Portadown won two of the relays and Ballymoney won two. Everyone was anxious to hear the final score and Portadown were delighted with their narrow win.
The final score was Portadown 209 – Ballymoney 191
Thanks to Ballymoney who provided a lovely supper for both the kids and parents from Portadown and a great night was had by all.
