Matty Kent-Lloyd’s crisp second half strike ensured St Mary’s beat Peel 1-0 on Saturday afternoon to advance into the ECAP FA Cup’s last four.

The former DHSOB forward struck midway through the second 45 at a wind-swept Douglas Road to keep his side’s Grand Slam hopes alive.

Peel, who continue to be without influential trio Lee Gale, Rhys Oates and Daniel Bell, impressed in spells but lacked a cutting edge up front particularly in the first half when the hosts had the wind at their backs.

Elsewhere, St George’s were in rampant form as they thrashed Ramsey 10-0 at Glencrutchery Road.

The goals were shared out, with Calum Morrissey, Furo Davies and Connor Hislop all scoring braces while Chris bass Jr, Sean Quaye and Johnny Myers helped themselves to single strike and there was also an own goal.

JCK Division Two high-fliers Colby produced a battling performance against Premier League heavyweights Corinthians at the Station Fields.

Stephen Whitley got the Whites off to a perfect start by opening the scoring in the very first minute, only for in-form striker Carl Hickey to level matters for the Moonlighters from the penalty.

In the end though, further goals from Sean Doyle and Danny Gerrard ensured it was the Ballafletcher outfit that triumphed 3-1 to book their place in the semi-finals.

Elsewhere in the FA Cup, Rushen United proved too strong for Douglas Royal at Croit Lowey, booking their place in the last four thanks to a 4-0 victory.

The goalscorers for the Spaniards were Kyle Lunn, Steve Riding, Aaron Hawley and Michael Williams and they will now face St George’s in the semi-finals, while St Mary’s host Corinthians at the Bowl.

The day’s sole Canada Life Premier League saw Marown host DHSOB at the Memorial Playing Fields in Crosby.

The two sides played out a rare goalless draw, a result which moved the home team another point closer to top flight safety.

The rearranged GH Corlett Woods Cup clash between Gymns and Braddan went ahead in Tromode and it was the visitors who progressed courtesy of a 4-2 victory, goals from Tom O’Neill, Matthew Ogden, Mikey Hutton and Lee Currer doing the damage for the Swans.

All four scheduled games went ahead in JCK Division Two and Union Mills boosted their promotion and title hopes by getting the better of rivals Foxdale at Billy Goat Park.

Richie Cannell gave the Millers a very early lead by opening the scoring in the opening minute of the game, before Jay Chatwood equalised for the hosts.

Chatwood netted again to put Foxdale ahead but Kyle Uren levelled for the visitors before half-time to leave the score at 2-2.

Uren edged the Millers ahead in the 79th minute before Luke Booth sealed the points for the Garey Mooar outfit in the 89th minute to clinch a 4-2 victory.

Ayre United remain second in the Div Two standings but they were made to work hard by Douglas and District at Noble’s Park.

The Tangerines led 1-0 at haf-time before the goals flew in after the break, with Daniel Stewart-Clague scoring a hat-trick for the hosts to add to a Mark Quirk strike.

In the end though, a Dean Tate brace plus goals from Ste Barbour, James Callister, Shaun Kelly plus Johnny Shields sealed a 6-4 win for Ayre.

St John’s remain third only two points behind the Tangerines with a game in hand after they saw off the challenge of Malew at Clagh Vane.

In fact, Dorin Tatar had given the hosts an early lead but the Saints levelled just before half-time and then went on to score four more times after the break to seal a 5-1 win, the goals coming from Paul Whitehead with two, plus Jamie Crook, Lewis Daly and substitute Cian Brock.

The other game in the second division saw Michael United claim their fourth win of the season with a 6-2 success away at Governor’s Athletic. Rob Bell and Thomas Davies netted for the hosts at Bemahague but there were no details of the Michael scorers at the time of writing.
