With the mercury tipping the 30 degrees mark in the Foyle Cup today the action on the pitches was equally hot as the tournament reached the business end.

The Inishowen Academys boys sides at Under 12, 14, 15 and 16s level have all progressed to the Plate competition after finishing runners up in their group stages where they will play their semi-finals tomorrow.

In the big Ladies Inishowen derby at Chapel Lane tonight the Greencastle girls defeated Illies and will now contest the Foyle Cup Final at Wilton Park tomorrow night (Kick off 7pm).

They will now face 2012 winners Sion Swifts who they narrowly lost to on a 1-0 scoreline last night.
