St Pats ended Uni-Mowbray's season and set up a first semi-final showdown with Evandale next week with a 38-point victory in their NTFA division 2 elimination final at Rocherlea yesterday.
The Saints jumped out of the blocks in the wet and windy conditions booting the first five goals of the game with the aid of the wind with their twin forward targets in Lenny Towns and Dayle O'Neill both kicking two each.
The Eagles battled hard to fight back into the contest in the second quarter to be within 16 points at half-time.
But the Saints played the better wet weather football in the second half extending their advantage to 28 points at three-quarter time and eventually ran out comfortable winners 10.8 (68) to 4.6 (30).
Towns and O'Neill both finished with three goals each, with Brodie Langley booting two and singles to Todd Rattray and Kane Stewart.
Paul Kelly was outstanding through the midfield in a best-on-ground effort for St Pats with Tim Faull in the ruck, Towns, Rattray, Jason Moore and Anthony Brown other good players.
Lewis Taylor kicked two goals for Uni in a good performance to be one of its best with Darren Woodward, Mathew Murfett, Justin Whiley and Brodie Frost battling hard in the poor conditions.
''It was a really good win - we had a fantastic start with five goals to none in the first quarter and then Uni had a real crack in the second and third quarter,'' St Pats coach Lenny Towns said.
''We just played really good hard finals footy and it is fantastic for our club.
''We look forward to Evandale next Sunday - our games have been really good and we're in with a 50-50 chance and we will see how we go.''
Old Launcestonians came from behind in the final quarter after trailing all day to beat Uni-Mowbray in the reserves elimination final winning 7.9 (51) to 5.15 (45).
