Killenagh Wanderers 5 Kilmore United 0

Goals from Theresa Redmond, Megan Cahill, Laura Stafford, Leanne Naughter and Yvette Deacon had the home side well in control and, although they had a player sent-off in the second-half, they held on for the win.

Benfica 7, St. Leonards 0: The home side are in danger of being relegated but they are making a determined push for cup glory and proved far too strong for Division 2 team St. Leonards.

Goals from Besarta Ajeti (two), Claire Ryan (two), Becky Conroy, Lisa Dower and Leanne O'Reilly saw Benfica through to the last four.

North End United 0, Seaview United 2: These sides went into this battle probably with equal chances of getting to the semi-finals, but Seaview progressed to the last four and remain a good outside bet for the cup.

Goals from Ashling Mullan and Cáit Hayes were enough to see the visitors through in a game where they played some of their best football of the season.

Moyne Rangers 4, St. Cormac's 0: Division leaders Moyne Rangers are safely through to the last four of the Nolan Health and Fitness Cup after overcoming an improving St. Cormac's side 4-0.

April Breen (two), Ann Marie Murphy and Siobhán Grant-Moorehead were all on target for the winners who will now play Rosslare Rangers in the semi-finals.

Castledockrell United 4, New Ross Town 3: This win for Castledockrell ensures their safety in Division 1 while relegating St. Joseph's to Division 2 for next season and also leaving New Ross still requiring a point to clinch second place.

Caitríona Murray scored all four for the home side while Ann Carroll (two) and Sinéad Ryan were on target for Town.

Coolgreany Celtic 5, Taghmon United 0: Taghmon will need Cloughbawn to beat New Ross Town in their final game to keep them in the hunt for promotion from Division 1 after this 5-0 defeat away to league champions Coolgreany.

Goals from Deirdre Healy (two), Jackie Kinch, MaryJo Lawless and Méabh Hughes gave the home side all three points.

All Blacks 3, Courtown Hibs 0: With two games remaining, the Division 2A title race is now between All Blacks and St. Leonards after the home side collected their ninth win of the season when they overcame Courtown Hibs 3-0

Róisín Furlong, Aoife Traynor and Deirdre Kenny were all on target for the home side.

Bree United 4, Bunclody A.F.C. 1: Only one point divides three teams in the battle against relegation and both these sides are involved after Bree came away 4-1 winners and collected a very important three points.

Shonagh Spratt-Murphy was the heroine for the home side as she scored all four goals.

Corach Ramblers 2, Cloughbawn A.F.C. 'B' 0: Ramblers completed their league campaign with a win and will finish the season in a comfortable fourth place.

Pamela McCormack and Emer Cahill were both on target for Corach who would probably have been serious promotion contenders only for too many draws.

Rosslare Strand 2, Tombrack United 0: An understrength Tombrack side battled hard against the home team in Division 2B before eventually going down to two second-half goals, a result that will go a long way to ensuring they get promoted.

Those strikes from Tara Connick and Karen Koolhoff gave Strand the three points that keeps the pressure on leaders Moyne.

Rosslare Rangers 0, Seaview United 'B' 3: Seaview's second team are now just a point behind third after they travelled to Rosslare Rangers and came away 3-0 winners.

Dani Odham (two) and Ciara Nolan were on target for the visitors as they picked up their sixth win of the season.

Ajax Athletic 2, Cushinstown A.F.C. 0: Ajax picked up their first league win of the season when they overcame a Cushinstown side who have hit a poor run of form in recent weeks.

Kelly Murphy-Buckley and Annemarie Moorehouse were both on target for this historic league win for the home side which will give them a boost ahead of the 2015-'16 campaign.
