NIFL PREMIERSHIP CUP SEMI-FINALS
Crusaders Strikers 2-4 Newry City
Glentoran Belfast United 0-2 Linfield
Celine Sees City Through Semis
Newry took the lead at Solitude though Celine Curtis and although Courtney Moore scored the equaliser before the break, Curtis restored the advantage 3 minutes into the second half.
Amy McGivern brought Crusaders back on level terms on the hour mark but 3 minutes later and Rayza Souza made it 3-2.
Curtis then completed both her hat-trick and effectively the victory with 22 minutes left.
Louise At The Double For Linfield
Glentoran held Linfield to a goalless first 45 minutes at Ashfield but Louise McFrederick eventually broke the deadlock.
The same player later sealed Linfield’s place in the final with a header from a corner in the last 5 minutes.
