But Dunmow Crest Whites were pipped 34-31 by Division Seven rivals Phoenix Jets in the same competition.

Jets took a narrow lead in a frantic first quarter, played at a rapid pace with errors made by both teams, but Crests had a strong second quarter, dictating the pace of play.

The Crests defence played a strong second half, which turned into a physical battle for possession, but were hampered slightly by advantage not being played on a number of occasions late on.

This allowed the Jets defence the chance to regroup and prevent easier runs at goal and saw Crests come up short, with Sam Clayden their player of the match.
