A first half Cathair O'Connor goal set Foreglen on the way to a win that moved them to fourth in the table as they accounted for Lissan on Friday night.
In an evenly-matched opening half, the sides traded scores, with only O'Connor's goal separating them at the break as the hosts led by 1-6 to 0-6.
St Michael's fired two goals past Foreglen's Sean O'Hara in the seond period and added a further 0-2, but the hosts' ability to consistently split the posts was enough to see them home.
The four-point victory moves them fourth at the expense of St Mary's Faughanvale.
