The Galway college need a result to advance to the knock out stages and send the title holders packing.
Darragh Burke has been among the freetakers but five Aaron Gillane scores gave the hosts a 0-6 to 0-3 lead on 12 minutes.
However, against the wind, NUIG stayed in touch and only trailed 0-8 to 0-6 on 20 minutes before Colin Guilfoyle struck Mary I’s goal two minutes later to put the distance between the teams and they’ve maintained that five-point cushion at half-time.
