BBC Sport - Irish Cup: Glenavon beat Loughgall to reach last four

Glenavon beat Loughgall to reach last four

Glenavon beat Loughgall 2-1 at Mourneview Park to book an Irish Cup semi-final date against Crusaders on Saturday 2 April.

Declan O'Brien capitalised on a mistake by Loughgall keeper Gareth Buchanan to put the Lurgan Blues ahead before the break.

Loughgall defender Richard Copeland was dismissed for a last-man foul on 52 minutes and Andy McGroy made it 2-0 from a penalty after he was fouled.

Stuart Mallon smashed in for the visitors midway through the second half but Glenavon held on to progress.
