Hurley the star man in Crescent cruise
Crescent Comp 39 Glenstal Abbey 17
Daniel Hurley was the star of the show as Crescent Comprehensive put six tries past Glenstal on the 4G pitch at University Of Limerick.
The Limerick school led 15-10 at the interval - with tries from Calvin Nash and a stunning solo effort from full-back Hurley - and took control in the second half.
Further tries followed from Anson Thai, Conor Phillips and Jack Fehilly to stretch the lead to 34-10. Glenstal refused to throw in the towel and pulled back a try from George Dowing, before Niall Mulcahy had the final say.
The win puts Crescent into tomorrow's quarter-final draw. Glenstal are out.
