    The start of the final quarter saw St Patrick’s eight points in front, but PEGS were relentless and scored to make it all level at the eight-minute mark of the last quarter.  St Patrick's answered the challenge and stormed away, kicking five of the next six goals to win by 23 points.

    The best player medallions went to St Patrick's Nick O'Brien (Neale Daniher Medal) and PEGS' Darcy Bailey (Kevin Sheehan Medal).  The premiership trophy was presented to St Patrick’s captain Nick O’Brien and coach Howard Clark.
