The beaten Leinster finalists now face the acid test against Dr. Harty Cup winners Thurles C.B.S. in the penultimate round which is down for decision on Saturday, March 21.
After a tight first 20 minutes when the sides were level five times, St. Peter's pulled away from their rivals with five unanswered points to lead by 0-10 to 0-5 at the break.
The gap was never less than six points after team captain Joe O'Connor added another score within seconds of the re-start, and the only concern for Peter's was the high wide count of eleven in the second-half.
Scorers for the winners were Joe O'Connor (0-4), Billy Dunne (0-4, 3 frees), Rory O'Connor (0-3), Rowan White and Jack Pettit (0-2 each), Jake Firman and Conor Hearne (0-1 each).
