CRESCENT COLLEGE CROSSED over five times to edge out Rockwell College and book their place in the Munster Schools Senior Cup semi-finals.
The Limerick side hit the front on 14 minutes when Conor Phillips’ offloaded to Conor Fitzgerald on the Rockwell ’22 and the loosehead prop sprinted away for the game’s first try.
Things got better for Crescent almost immediately as Daniel Feasey collected Jack Delaney’s cross-field kick to score in the corner.
Rockwell were up against it at this stage, but a Jake Flannery penalty settled their nerves and fierce pressure at the end of the half resulted in a try for Conall Kennedy. Flannery converted to level the scores at 10-10.
Crescent took control when the game resumed with a brilliant individual try from Phillips. He collected his own chip ahead to put his side five points in front.
Feasey then went in for his second after gathering Jake Connolly’s deft kick over the top and John Hurley’s conversion then put Crescent 22-10 ahead.
A Flannery penalty and a Tom Russell try threatened a Rockwell comeback late on, but Timmy Duggan made sure of the victory for Crescent with their fifth try.
