Monivea cut loose on way to last eight

AN EARLY setback proved to be of no obstacle to Monivea as they came from behind to convincingly see off the visitors in Sunday’s Connacht Junior Cup first round tie and in the process set up an away clash with Ballinrobe in the quarter-finals.
While Castlebar might have scored the first and last tries of the contest, the reality is that they were beaten up all over the park for the majority of the game as the home side ran in five tries in a comfortable success.
The tempo was created in the opening minutes when Monivea pushed the visitors off their own ball in the scrum, while big hits from Kevin King and Stephen Joyce really set the tone, as Castlebar were driven back in all the physical encounters.
