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.
