LIT led 1-10 to 0-4 at half-time with their goal coming from full-forward Niall Maher who guided a Diarmaid Byrne free in to the net in the 26th minute.

Whatever chance Maynooth had of an unlikely comeback was extinguished inside 30 seconds of the second half when David Reidy crashed the ball off the underside of the crossbar for his side's second goal.

Peter Duggan's goal ended the game as a contest before Maynooth's Ross Donohue grabbed his side's first score from play in the 40th minute. With three minutes left to play, LIT's Paul Killeen hit their fourth goal.
