Division 3 Cup quarter-final: Bridge Rovers 3, St. Cormac's 3 (AET, Bridge Rovers won 5-4 on penalties): These two sides played out a thrilling cup tie before Bridge Rovers eventually booked their place in the semi-final after a penalty shoot-out.

Finnola Monahan, Kelley Scallan and Sinéad Ronan were all on target for Rovers while Danielle O'Connor, Michelle Darcy and Lorraine Fortune all scored for St. Cormac's to bring the game to extra-time. No further goals saw the game go to penalties where the home side held their nerve to progress 5-4.

Bunclody AFC 2, Shelburne FC 1: The home side returned to the top of the table after they eventually broke down a Shelburne side which is enjoying a good run of form in recent games. They brought the best out of the Bunclody girls who had to work very hard for the three points.

Britney Conroy put the home side ahead near the end of the first-half, but Shauna Cowman levelled for Shelburne almost on the hour before Britney popped up to score the winner with 15 minutes to go.
