[CentOS] More awk help

Hey guys,
Looking through my book and the web and I am not having any success
returning data from a search.

I need to have awk search for a string and print the first field which
is no problem but now its returning two options as the input data has
changed. The change is reliable, I only want the first field if it ends
in a regex that I have, and I only want what that regex matches to be
printed. Is it possible to do this in a one liner so I don't need to
construct an awk script?

I suppose I could pipe it into grep and cut but that's not very sexy :)

Any ideas?

Thanks!
