Tarkan Pinarci's try deep in injury-time saw St Clement's advance to the quarter-finals of the Munster Schools Junior Cup in a dramatic finish at UL.

Glenstal opened the scoring after nine minutes through a Josh Kennedy penalty, but Clement's were soon in front after Adam McNamara went over.

Adam White put Glenstal in front again soon after the interval with a close-range try, that was again brilliantly converted by Twomey.

Clement's fought back through Casey's try though, before Pinarci sealed it late on.
