Holders Glentoran Women will meet Crusaders Strikers in the final of the Electric Ireland Women's Challenge Cup at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park on October 15th.
The Glens came from behind to defeat Cliftonville Ladies in Bangor while the Crues got the better of Sion Swifts Ladies at Mill Meadow in Castledawson.
Glentoran, holders since 2018, continued their defence of the trophy despite falling behind to a Kirsty McGuinness strike around the half-hour mark at Clandeboye Park. However, Emma McMaster levelled just before the break with her first goal of the season.
The Reds might have regained the lead early in the second half from the spot but McGuinness' penalty was well saved by Glentoran keeper Ashleigh McKinnon who dived to her left to keep the scores even.
It proved to be a pivotal moment in the game when, with less than 20 minutes remaining, Lauren Wade knocked home what proved to be Glentoran's winner.
At Mill Meadow, a goal early in each half ultimately handed Crusaders victory over the Swifts. Lisa Armour opened the scoring on three minutes with a header from a corner, but Erin McLaughlin levelled for Sion just before the break.
The winner for the Strikers arrived on 49 minutes in spectacular fashion from Jessica Rea, who sent a screamer into the top corner from outside the box.
