A game that was end to end as both sides did their best to move the ball at every opportunity but just as it seemed a score was about to come there seemed to be a dropped pass or some excellent defending on both sides to scramble to protect their line.
Tries in the first half from Lee Kilcoyne and Josh Verling had Creggs ahead 12-5 at half time and with the scores level at 12-12 entering the last quarter, out-half DJ Hession had a great cross field kick gathered by Conor Betts who passed back inside to Darren Gately going over to put Creggs back in the lead. DJ Hession converted.
Five minutes later Creggs again attacked the line and a brilliant move by the backs saw Jack Fleming go over for Creggs fourth try under the posts which Hession again converted.
Creggs will play Corrib RFC in the Semi-Final in two weeks time.
