Holders Crescent Comprehensive began their campaign with a narrow 9-8 win over Castletroy College and than defeated P.B.C. 20-10 in the quarter final.
Tries by Mike O’Donnell, James Beary and Jack Hogan saw them defeat Glenstal Abbey 22-6 in the semi final. Skipper Gearoid Lyons kicked a conversion and penalty and Greg O’Shea added a conversion.
Crescent's team last week was –
Crescent Comp: Jason O’Sullivan; Jack Hogan, Greg O’Shea, JJ O’Neill, James Beary; Garoid Lyons (capt), Ed Barry; John Tuohy, Cillian Rea, Liam McMahon, Michael O’Donnell, Jay Kavanagh; Rory Noone, James Green, Cormac Blake.
Replacements: Robbie Scott, Mark O’Connor, Cian Guerin, Lorcan Russell, Tim Moloney, Eoin Parkes.
Crescent will start as favourites and have plenty of experience but Ard Scoil are sure to push them all they way over the sixty minutes in what should be a thrilling contest.
