ARDSTRAW will face Portstewart in the semi-final of the Northern Ireland Challenge Cup after defeating Dungiven 2-1 in extra-time in Thursday evening’s semi-final at Vaughan’s Holm.
The last-eight tie was deadlocked at the end of 90 minutes after a William Donaghy strike had cancelled out a superb opener by visiting striker Ciaran Lynch.
But in extra-time it was supersub Adam Clarke who swooped to earn Gary Simpson’s men a trip to the seaside.
In stark contrast there was bitter disappointment for Ardstraw’s North Tyrone neighbours Strabane Athletic, who were defeated 1-0 by Newbuildings at Melvin.
Newbuildings now host Trojans, who were 6-1 victors against Maiden City.
The semi-final ties will be played on Saturday, April 29.
This weekend Athletic travel to Portstewart for a league game.
