Christians emerged worthy winners of the Clayton Hotels Munster Schools Senior Cup at Musgrave Park. They led 8-0 at the break with a try from Sean Duffy and a penalty from James Taylor.
Out-half Taylor added another penalty and kicked two conversions of tries from Finn Burke and Anthony Ryan in a more one-sided second half.
Crescent were never really in the hunt but did have a consolation score from Ronan Slattery and Christians struck late with a try from substitute Scott Buckley.
