In the Ricky Fogarty Cup quarter final, BT Harps continued their recent excellent form with a 7-1 rout of Borroway Rovers on Sunday.

Martin Harty and Stefan Leahy both kept up their recent good form with a brace apiece for while Ben Stapleton and Shane Scully also found the net.

Harps have now earned their place in the semi-finals of both the Tipperary and the Ricky Fogarty Cups and on this form they must be considered hot favourites for both competitions.

 

League
