St Marys then went into the division two semi-final where they met old rival Limerick Celtics and won this 57-44.

In the final St Mary's met Belfast Star, St Mary's were up 16-3 at the end of the first quarter. They continued their winning ways and were up 24-5 at half time. Belfast couldn't claw back the lead and with every member of St Mary's getting on the score sheet the lead continued to grow. At the final whistle it was St Mary's 50 Belfast Star 21.
