St Mary’s avenged their FA CUP final defeat by defeating Peel in the Hospital Cup on Saturday afternoon.

In one of only two games to survive the weather in Manx football, the Saints triumphed 3-0 at Douglas Road to continue their quest for a league and cup double.

Seven days earlier, the westerners triumphed 3-1 after extra-time to clinch their 32nd FA Cup, but this time around it was a completely different story.

Jack McVey gave the Saints a first-half lead before second-half strikes from captain Frank Jones plus an injury-time goal from Craig Murphy sealed a comprehensive 3-0 win to book their place in the semi-finals of the Keystone Law-sponsored competition.

The only other game to go ahead saw RYCOB complete their JCK Division Two league campaign with a hard-fought win against Colby at Scoill ree Gorree.

In a tight game dominated by the wind, Ste Grose put the northerners in front only for Andy Blake to equalise for the Moonlighters.

However, it was the hosts who dug deep and retook the lead through Dan Sherry who netted what proved to be the winner.

The result leave Youthie top of the table but playing the waiting game to see if they’ve done enough to secure promotion to the Premier League.
