On a surface that was scarcely playable, the Athlone lads coped far better with the appalling conditions.

They were already 0-4 to 0-0 ahead when Niall Neary rounded off a fine move with a goal midway through the first half and they went on to lead by 1-5 to 0-1 at the break.

Colaiste Mhuire took to the field in the second half in a changed strip but the pattern of the game continued as it had been in the opening half an hour – with Marist dominating throughout the pitch.

Any lingering doubts about the outcome were ended when the Athlone lads pounced for a quickfire brace of goals at the start of the fourth quarter via substitute Aidan Byrne and a second strike of the contest from Neary.

Scorers – Marist College: N Neary 2-2 (0-2f), N Kelly 0-4 (3f), A Byrne 1-0, S Omokuro, M Monaghan, A O'Sullivan 0-1 each. Colaiste Mhuire: D Lyons 0-2f, Nathan Gavin 0-1.
