Greystones never gave up and were rewarded with a superb strike with 25 minutes to go, Carroll had no chance.
Pats kept playing to their strengths and should have added another goal or two, but the Greystones keeper and some lack luster finishing saw the scoreline remain at 2-1.
In the 25th minute Karl Tims was played through beating the Greystones back four, rounding the keeper only to be tripped, Smithers stepped up to slam home the penalty, 3-1.
Karl Tims then made it 4-1 with minutes remaining, finally getting the goal his play deserved.
