Tries from Conor Fitzgerald and Daire Feasy gave Crescent an early 10-0 lead. Rockwell replied with a Conall Kennedy try and a conversion and a penalty from Jake Flannery to tie the scores 10-10 at half time.
Twice in the opening half Clement’s came from behind to level but once Christians upped the ante in the second half the Limerick lads were outclassed.
A try from Adam Marshall converted by Bateman levelled the scores ten minutes before the interval.
In added time Hedderman put Christians ahead with a try which he converted for a 17-10 half time lead.
Sam O’Donovan and David Hyland each scored two tries and Mark McCarthy, Mark McLoughlin, Darragh O’Callaghan, Sean French. Louis Bruce and Eoin Burns got one apiece. Jonathan Wren kicked three conversions and James Broderick two, Cian Murphy was Ard Scoil’s try scorer and Darragh O’Gorman converted.
