Last year’s Gilfillan Cup finalists Creggan Swifts crashed out of the competition at the weekend after they were defeated by Brandywell Harps at the Quarter-Final stage.
In Group 7 of the competition, Hatmore failed in their attempt to reach the last eight after they could only manage a draw with Tamnaherin Celtic in a game they had to win. In the second of the weekend quarter-finals Newton Heath managed to see off Sion Swifts to grab their semi final berth.
In the Premier Division, Clifton Villa had an easy win over Du Pont while Bentley and Rosemount shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw.
In the Championship, Phoenix Athletic Colts defeated Foyle FC while Tristar beat Artigarvan. City Colts and Culmore shared the spoils in a 3-3 draw while Foyle Harps remain top thanks to their win over Clooney. Finally, Strabane Athletic went to Dungiven and returned home with all three points.
