Classy Methody claim glory
Methodist College 47 Campbell College 17
Methodist College outplayed Campbell College, scoring seven tries to two, to secure Ulster Schools' Cup glory at Kingspan Stadium.
Methody could have won by a greater margin and took the lead when Ben Gourley crashed over, with Ethan McElroy successful with his first of six conversions.
Campbell levelled with a Harry Jackson try with Conor Rankin converting and then went ahead when the latter was successful after a harsh penalty award.
Max Lyttle regained the advantage for Methody though and they led 14-10 at the break.
Campbell's Dara Gaskin touched down in the second half with Rankin converting.
But Thomas Armstrong (two), Callum Davidson, David Boden and Tom Millar dotted down to secure a first final success for five seasons.
