Portadown Boys’ Brigade Battalion under 14s recently wrapped up a third successive Torrens Northern Ireland Shield success.
Victory on a penalty shoot-out at Tannaghmore Gardens against Belfast Battalion helped to complete a BB hat-trick of titles at the expense of the city side.
Goalkeeper Adam McAlpine stepped up to slot home a vital penalty then returned between the posts for a trophy-winning save to secure a 3-2 triumph.
Daniel Gordon broke the deadlock in the second half of normal time with a close-range finish, following a save off the initial shot by captain Thomas McIntosh.
Lee Upton smashed home a free-kick from distance to double the Portadown Battalion advantage.
However, a late fightback resulted in two goals inside the final five minutes by Belfast Battalion to force a spot-kick lottery.
McIntosh and Gordon each converted under pressure before McAlpine claimed centre-stage.
Eddie Drury, the team manager, highlighted the impressive display by referee Martin Larkham plus the coaching work by Portadown Football Club thirds’ Andrew Topley.
