Colmcille's also went for the points but the wind was preventing them from shooting at range.
Colmcille's started the second half four points down but Patrick White led the siege of Rover's goal and the points started to come. With 10 minutes remaining, Colmcille's scored three points with no reply to draw level.
Rovers regrouped and responded in similar fashion, scoring three points to no reply. Colmcille's battled on and contained Rovers in the last third of the pitch, continuing to push for parity and then the lead.
A long effort by Aaron O'Byrne and a free from Damien Jennings got Colmcille's within a point of Rovers but the Cotlandswick side fired the last chance agonisingly just wide and were defeated.
Colmcille's face St Dympna's of Luton next week in a crucial game they must now win to progress to the semi finals of the Championship.
