Despite falling behind 10-0 a try from William Down on the stroke of half-time got the Columba's boys back in contention, with Richard Goddard's conversion from a tight angle further reducing the deficit.

Columba's upped the ante after the break and tries from Josh Pieterse and another from Down confirmed the win.
