In wind and rain effected game, the Dukes went down 18-5 in a tightly fought game against Maccabi last Saturday. The game was scrappy at many points with a lot of dropped ball and missed opportunities by both teams.
After a half time score of only 3-0 to the Maccabians, The Dukes never gave up the hope of causing an upset the entire second half, pressuring the Maccabi try line and finally getting over (twice!…though only one was actually given…). After multiple pick and drives, the man credited the 5 points was the “Tirty Tree and a Turd” year old Irishman, Philip Hughes.
The Dukes now look toward next Saturday where they take on The Vales at Cherrybrook Park, Lansvale.
