Conway gets CBC over line
CBC 10 St Munchin's 7
CBC survived a few anxious moments before squeezing into a semi-final clash with Glenstal.
But by the finish the Cork side just about deserved their place in the last four. They went 3-0 ahead after eight minutes when Billy Caine landed a penalty after Crescent strayed offside.
St Munchin's were very unfortunate not to go in front but the last pass in a good move was knocked on in the touchdown.
CBC finished the half stronger and it took a super tackle on the line by Alex Casey to deny them a try.
The second half belonged to CBC and in particular Fergal Conway. The centre scored a spectacular try after being twice involved in the build-up ten minutes from the end, but at the other end two minutes later he was shown a yellow card for persistent offside as St Munchin's tried to force their way over.
Finally three minutes from the end St Munchin's were rewarded for their efforts with a try in the corner by Kristan Lugod which Jazz Pendejito superbly converted from the touchline.
