Neither team dominated in a close game at Oreti Park, with Marist ahead 12-7 midway through the second half, it looked like Collegiate would be unable to muster the strength to come back.
Both teams moved the ball through the backline which saw three of the four tries scored coming from back play.
Pope Wilson, Collegiate opened the scoring with a PG from 30 metres out.
With half time not far away, Marist's Mark Dempsey threw a beautiful dummy and made an inside break to cut straight through the Collegiate defence.
Mana Davis replied with a great individual try.
Not to be outdone, 5 minutes later, Marist executed a similar move by running the ball wide, hooker Lou Eustace was quick in support and made the final pass to Paul Burrows, second five eight who scored in the corner.
Keith Gaines, half back for Marist, slipped round the side of the scrum and scored, sealing the game for his team.
