The matches involving the Park Bar and Lisahally and Crescent v. Phoenix and Maydown v. Rocking Chair were all called off due to waterlogged pitches.

Meanwhile, in the First Division, the league leaders, Derry City cruised to a 5-0 victory over A.O.H. Harps to move eight points clear at the top of the table.

Campbell’s Bar crashed six goals past Strand United and there were also wins for The Bentley and Ballymoor.
