Belvedere opened the scoring with a penalty after five minutes from Eamon Fitzgerald, but St Mary's respnded soon after when Joey Connolly crossed for a try that Michael Finlay converted. Fitzgerald kept his side very much in the hunt with a second penalty and It was 7-6 to Mary's at half time.
St Mary's didn't manage to seal victory until the closing stages when Jonathan Sexton, a replacement for the injured Connolly, dropped into the pocket to drop a goal for three vital xtra points.
