The final was an intense match. Both College's split the scores 2 all in the singles. De La Salle won the first Doubles game. The second of the Doubles matches was crucial. Ryan Benegrado and Dean Cleary battled the St MacDara's pairing and as the tension mounted in the arena, they held their nerve and finally won the game.
