It was an all Leinster affair in the final, as Lisnagarvey suffered an agonising extra-time defeat to Pembroke Wanderers in the Irish Senior Cup final in Dublin.

The Ulster side came back from one down, thanks to a deflected cross from U18 star Sean Murray which found its way into the net.

Garvey thought Irish International Timmy Cockram’s goal in the first-half of silver goal extra-time would see them through but they conceded less than 20 seconds later.

With the game heading for penalty strokes, Pembroke snatched it in the final minute of extra-time thanks to a goal from Ireland star Alan Sothern.

The other game in the Premier League saw Cookstown dent Harlequins IHL chances with a 4-1 win at Deremore. Goals from Mark Crooks, Keith Black and two from Greg Allen.

In Senior One, North Down cruised to an impressive 6-1 victory against Bangor with six different scorers and also confirmed their play-off spot.

With Bangor losing, Campbellians stepped up their pursuit of a top five finish beating Antrim 6-3.

The final game saw Queens beat PSNI 6-1 and leapfrog them in the league on goal difference.

However, Queens still have four games in hand on their rivals above them and remain only eight points behind Bangor in fifth.
