It was yet another goal crazy day in the SuperCup NI tournament as the group stage matches were completed. 

There was a last gasp defeat for Celtic against County Tyrone in the Premier Section, with County Antrim's hopes of a third Junior Section crown ended by Pumas Unam.

In the Minor Section, Dungannon United Youth continued their 100% record and they will hope to reach the final but know they will be in for a tough clash against Ballymena United.


Dungannon United Youth won for a third successive game against Warrenpoint Town to set-up a last four clash against Ballymena United tomorrow afternoon. The other semi-final will see Glentoran take on Finn Harps at Seahaven, despite the Ballybofey side losing against Portadown this afternoon.

Last year's winners Greenisland will have to settle for competing for the Globe trophy but know they will have to be at their best to defeat Linfield. The other semi-final is an international affair as Beijing BFA lock horns with Global Premier Soccer at Castlerock.

Bertie Peacocks narrowly missed out on the Globe section but will aim for Vase glory as they take on Ballinamallard, with Glenavon against Ballyclare Colts the other semi-final.

Coleraine were beaten by Glentoran this afternoon and they will want to make amends against Larne in the Bowl section. Warrenpoint Town are still waiting to pick up a result at this year's tournament and they will face Portadown.
