Right from the off it was Lurgan on the attack and it was no surprise when they took the lead through Julie Morrow after she pounced on a loose ball in the circle after five minutes.

Ballyclare were finding it hard to get over the halfway line as Lurgan kept up the pressure.

The second goal came on 21 minutes and it was a lovely piece of individual skill from Kathryn Edgar who skipped past one defender and sent a superb shot past the keeper.

It remained 2-0 at the break but Ballyclare did raise their game on the restart and it took some stern defending and goalkeeping to keep them at bay.

The third goal sealed the tie for Lurgan and it was Samantha Bann who converted it with a fine reverse stick execution.

Sub Serena Hamilton thought she had made it 4-0 but the umpire ruled her close range effort out.

Lurgan College will face Rainey Endowed in the final back at Lisnagarvey on March 5.
