Ballymoe FC upset the odds last weekend with a very impressive 3-2 win in the semi-finals of the Premier Division Cup to wreck any hopes St. Peter’s FC had of claiming back-to-back trebles. Ballymoe will now face Ballinasloe Town in the final of that competition.
Elsewhere, Dunmore Town maintained their Division One status with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Ahascragh United after extra-time. Ahascragh will now face Roscommon United next weekend with the winners playing in Division One next season.
Finally, St. John’s Athletic will play CP Ajax this weekend for a place in the Division One Cup Final following their 2-0 win away to Ballinasloe Town B last weekend.
