It was 3-2 on aggregate when Roshane Sharpe scored Humble Lion's second, before the game was level on aggregate after Javon Smith got in on the act.

Harbour View ensured they remained on course to retain their title when skipper Ryan Wellington headed home in the 77th minute to give them the 4-3 aggregate win. They set up a date with Cavalier next Monday.

Mount Pleasant FC will face off with Arnett Gardens in the semis after they thrashed Dunbeholden 3-0 for a 4-1 aggregate win.

Leonardo Rankine scored a double and substitute Atapharoy Bygrave got the third for the St Ann-based team who cruised into the last four.
