Down recorded another derby victory over rivals Saintfield at Malone Park in the Senior 2 Cup last weekend.
The home side bounced back from conceding a converted penalty stroke to move up through the gears to score seven goals without further reply in a game where Saintfield's young players again emerged with great credit for their battling qualities.
Down are keen to end the season with some silverware and have an eye on the Senior 2 Cup. Saintfield arrived fresh from taking a point off Armagh at The Demesne in a league game three days earlier, with veteran Jim Sloan lining out for the visitors, with teenager Matthew McClurg continuing in goal.
Down seconds bid to win the Junior 6 title race suffered a major blow at Portadown last weekend.
Gary Brown's side has been superb all season, but events conspired against them on a day when they were outclassed by a side which fielded players who looked rather impressive for the bottom tier of junior hockey.
The one bright spot was a battling performance by the visitors and an inspired 70 minutes by 'keeper David Moreland who produced a number of excellent saves to thwart Portadown.
