Ards...............17 Limavady..............12

THIS match summed up Limavady's league campaign to date - much effort for no end result. A few weeks ago, Limavady played Ards in a home fixture which resulted in the game being lost in the very last play of the afternoon. On Saturday they travelled for the away fixture. After all the rain that has fallen recently, the match was played on a very muddy, heavy pitch.
Ards fielded a very big side, better suited to the conditions but nevertheless, Limavady matched them for endeavor.
Ards scored first through the second row who was able to force his way over the line. With the conversion successful, it looked as if the half time score would be 7-0 in favour of the home side.
As it stood, that would not have been a bad position to be in with Limavady able to take advantage of the strong breeze in the second half.
