A second-half goal from substitute Dean Maguire eventually broke the Students’ resolve as Colin Kelly’s side followed up Sunday’s victory over Westmeath.
Maynooth proved no pushovers, taking the lead on 19 minutes with a Ryan O’Rourke goal, and holding it until the end of the third quarter.
However, Colin Kelly used the unlimited subs rule to good effect and his replacements eventually turned the tide once Maguire had edged them in front.
