Match Report-Belfast Harlequins Preseason 14/8/21
Chamber’s Park hosted AIL side Belfast Harlequins on Saturday as they took on Portadown’s Men’s Senior Squad in a pre-season hit out. Travelling with experience and talent, the challenge was there for the Portadown team, but with good pre-season preparation, they were ready for the game.
Starting strong, Portadown brought the physicality and impressive ball handling to the visitors, with the back’s silky hands allowing Portadown to continually apply pressure to the Quin’s defence.
At half time, Portadown were still fighting hard, with a few mistakes allowing Quins the lead but as the 2nd half progressed, the visitors started to pull ahead, showing their All Ireland experience and talent to the crowd.
Despite the scoreboard at the end of the game, Portadown played well and could hold their heads up high after a stern challenge. They now look forward to their final Preseason hit out against Larne on Saturday 21st August.
