Ulster Bank Schools Cup semi final results
Holders Belfast Royal Academy will meet city rivals Royal Belfast Academical Institution in the final of the Ulster Bank Schools Cup.
In all-Belfast semi finals the Academy overwhelmed Campbell College by 144 runs and "Inst" had an equally convincing seven wicket win over Grosvenor Grammar School in a match which produced a century for each side.
A powerful opening partnership between Francis Collins (82) and Jack Burton (68) of 169 paved the holders way to the final and with Conor Boyd weighing in with an undefeated 53 a total of 265 for 6 off 40 overs was always too many for Campbell. They managed just 121 with Collins again taking the honours with 4-38.
Grosvenor were in trouble early against "Inst" losing their first six wickets for 91 but an excellent 106 by Nelson took them to 175.But it was not enough, with "Inst" booking their place in the final by seven wickets, thanks in the main to 105 by Matthew Lightbody.
The final will be played at Muckamore on June 17.
