The best effort of the half, however, went to Chantomoi Taylor of St George's College whose shot from just inside the 18-yard box, after a build up, beat St Catherine High's goalkeeper Raheem Henry and rocketed back into play off the crossbar.
The second period was similar, with both teams failing to distinguish themselves.
St Catherine High's Paul Planter, however, should have given his team the lead,midway the half, when he freed himself of his marker inside the six-yard box, but from an angle on the left, he fired straight at goalkeeper Nathaniel Campbell.
St George's College eventually took the lead when, for the third time substitute Jamal Pusey beat his marker down the left flank and fired powerfully at goalkeeper Henry, from inside the 18-yard box.
Henry spilled the ball into the path of Robinson, who tapped into an unprotected goal.
