Good win on the road for Limavady thumbnailLimavady will hope to build on their good win at Lisburn on Saturday when they face Grosvenor this weekend.

Lisburn First XV........................19
Limavady First XV....................27
LIMAVADY travelled to Lisburn at the weekend looking for their fourth win in a row. For the first 20 minutes or so there was little between the teams with both sides making silly handling errors and thus cancelling each other out.
In the 22nd minute the game sprung into life when, following good recycled ball, the ball was quickly moved through the backline to put Peter Wilson in for a score in the corner. His conversion was missed.
Importantly, Limavady immediately added pressure on the home defence again and within a few minutes, following another handling error by Lisburn, Matthew Haslett was up in the line and was able to latch on to the loose ball and kick it through.
Thankfully for him the bounce was favourable and allowed him to run in unopposed to score under the posts. Peter converted. Lisburn now responded with a try of their own following strong play from their pack of forwards. The conversion was good and this was to remain the scoreline at half time
