Lagan Harps 3 Ballybofey Utd 1

Lagan reached the final after seeing off a determined Ballybofey side. Lagan took a 2- 0 first leg lead in to the tie and Ballybofey knew they had to start strongly. They did and were on top for the first ten minutes. Lagan began to get on top with Ben O'Donnell doing well in midfield. Lagan went close when Luke Parke was denied by a fabulous save from Odhran Bonner. Max Johnston was then denied twice when ruled offside. Ballbofey's best effort came from Oisin Duffy, but the Lagan defence marshalled by Dylan McAteer was giving nothing away. Lagan took the lead at the start of the second half when Lucy Canning's cross came off the bar and Oisin Harkin fired home the rebound. They increases the lead on forty five minutes. Faolan Gibson and Luke Parke combined to set up Max Johnston for a fine finish. Ballybofey grabbed a lifeline when Ruairi Callaghan fired home a penalty on fifty minutes. Shay McCole then did well to set up Max Johnston for another great finish to end the Ballybofey challenge. Lagan now face Illistrin in the decider.
