Portadown V Ballymena PTL Gala
Congratulations to both teams who kept everyone glued to their seats from the opening medley relays right to the last D Boys freestyle relay! It was clear that this was always going to be a close result with only a few points separating the teams all night, first it was Portadown ahead then it was Ballymena and this is the way it continued fraying nerves on all sides. Eventually, it came down to the last event of the evening – the freestyle relays – with both teams keen to win. In the end, there was nothing between the two squads and it finished with one of those very rare scores – Portadown 572 points and Balymena 572 points – a fair result given the way the points had gone all evening. Well done to all who took part, there were several great individual and team swims. Our next PTL is after the Christmas break, till then there is plenty still to be done!
