Despite the advantage of the elements after the break, Kilfeacle failed to add to their total and a try from John Ryan earned Cashel victory.

The students were always in control of this game and tries from Denis and Paul Hurley and Rory Geoghan and two penalties and two conversions from Barry Keeshan made sure of victory over the holders.
