In an exciting opening half at the Markets field it was Glenstal who led at half time 20-7.
The opening score of the game was by fly-half and man of the match Ben Healy after only three minutes from a penalty.
A few minutes later and Glenstal had their first try of the match from Ronan Quinn which was then converted by Healy to make the score 10-0.
Crescent College soon got into the game from a try by Jack Madden which was then converted by John Hurley.
Glenstal then got an intercept try through Andrew Hogan just before the break. Healy converted once again to give his side a thirteen point lead on the 40 minute mark.
Crescent did there best to get back in the second half with a penalty from Hurley on the sixty minute mark but it was Glenstal who finished out the game the better side with a try coming from Mark Fleming. Healy converted but also got a brilliant drop goal just before the end of the game.
