It proved to be a very close game with little between the two sides. The first try for Creggs after five minutes was finished by Luca Cormican and converted by Cathal Maloney.
Galway Bay replied with a try of their own just before half-time.
In the second half, Galway Bay came out with all guns blazing and got over for a deserved second try. Again, they failed to convert, so the home team lead by 10-7.
The Creggs boys then took the game to Galway Bay and after intense pressure Luca Cormican again barged over for Creggs second try, to seal the win for Creggs with a minute to go. Final score Galway Bay 10 – Creggs 12.
