Newcastle's Super NI Cup hopes dashed as Right To Dream snatch semi-final win

Christopher McKee's early penalty put County Antrim ahead against Club NI at the Riada Stadium in Ballymoney.

Club NI were inches away from getting on terms before half-time as Vicky Saldanha headed against a post.

However, Carson Elliott doubled Antrim's lead in the second half as he fired to the net from outside the box after a delightful drag-back while the third goal came late after a corner rebounded in off unlucky Club NI keeper Conor Byrne.

Matthew Longstaff's fifth-minute free-kick looked set to earn Newcastle victory in the Premier semi-final at the Coleraine Showgrounds.

However, the Ghanaian club, who won the junior competition in both 2016 and 2016, hit two goals in the final eight minutes with Ibrahim Sadiq levelling on 62 before Danish youngster Mikkel Damsgaard drilled in the winner three minutes later.

Both of Friday's finals will be broadcast live on the BBC Sport website with the junior final kicking off at 18:00 BST and the Premier decider starting at 20:00.
