Creggs U14’s lost their first league game of the year away to monivea last friday night under lights. Creggs too the lead when a kick ahead by Mark Purcell was grounded by Aaron Lyons after 7 minutes. The first Monivea score came with the last play of the first half when Creggs made a break up field but were turned over at the breakdown and Monivea ran in a try under the posts which they converted for a 7-5 half time lead. The second half both teams tried to run the ball but both defences were very well drilled and Creggs had a sustained period of pressure near the Monivea line in the last 5 minutes of the game and from a 5 metre penalty Jack Tucker was just held up Short and recycled the ball but Creggs knocked on the ball near the line and a long kick upfield resulted in a try for Monivea with the last play.
