Glenanne and Pembroke qualify

Glenanne and Pembroke got the results they needed from this morning's fixtures to qualify for the Club Championships semi-finals.

Pembroke drew 2-2 with hosts Lisnagarvey to give both sides the point they needed to make the last four, 'Garvey scoring with 20 seconds to go to make this afternoon's fixture between Ulster and Munster champions - Cork C of I and Cookstown - a dead rubber.

Glenanne, meanwhile, drew 3-3 with Harlequins. Goals from Stephen Butler and Paul Fitzpatrick built up a 2-0 lead before they were pegged back by the Hobbs brothers Dan and John.

Eddie O'Malley made it 3-2 before younger brother Dan equalised but they could not rally to keep up Munster's involvement in the competition.

The Glens will now wait until this afternoon to see where they finish in the group, depending on the Rovers-Banbridge tie. A 5-4 win for Bann would see them need a penalty stroke competition to decide top spot with Glenanne in the group and affect the semi-finals draw.
