Steel through to League Cup final

Steel United have qualified for the Alan Walker League Cup final with a thrilling 4-3 victory over Westland United at Magill Park on Sunday.

The game got off to a flying start with only two minutes on the clock Shane Dunbar took advantage of a defensive error to squeeze the ball past Kilpatrick from a tight angle for a 1-0 lead to the Red Devils.

Minutes later Ledington was brought down just inside the box and Green got his side square as he coolly converted the penalty.

Five minutes later Westlands once again found themselves in front, this time a beautiful goal by Holland from outside the box that crept in just under the crossbar for a 2-1 lead .

Thirty minutes into the first half Steel won a corner and Ledington stooped in at the back post to knock his header in for 2-2.

Just before half time Edmondson went down in what looked like a serious leg injury and had to be stretchered off, we all hope he gets well soon.

In the second half Steel took the lead for the first time as the ball was squared to King and the recently new dad side footed past the keeper for his first Steel goal.

Westlands wouldn't go away though and Dunbar got his second with a well timed header for 3-3.

With 10 minutes to go the home side got the winner as a free kick deep into Westlands box saw Wade win a header that looped dangerously towards goal and Bambridge bravely got his head to it to score from close range as Steel won a thriller and will now meet Wanderers in the Cup final.

In the reserves, already qualified Westland United defeated Steel 3-0.

In Saturday's game a brilliant hat trick by junior Jordy Kuchel gave Lions a 6-0 win over Croatia with fellow young gun McKay also snaring a brace.

Kurt Kuchel rounded out the scoring for the home team.

In the reserves, Lions took the points in a dead rubber through a forfeit.
