Sun Inn Lemsford joined The Grove in the last four after a slender 2-1 victory over Shamrock Rovers Reserves.

With the game heading for a draw, Manny Chitongo touched in a last-minute winner to see Sun Inn advance. (Video of this goal can be found of Macron WHSFL’s Twitter page).
It was a disappointing day for both Shamrock Rovers sides as their main team were also eliminated from the competition, losing 2-1 to Bradmore Rovers.
Daryl Archer and Ennis Daly netted the vital goals for Bradmore.
Sean Brettell replied for Rovers.
Macron WHSFL wish to extend their sincere condolences to the family of a player who collapsed during a match at Lemsford.
