The other semi-final paired the two Hibs teams and it went to the last game in favour of Hibs 58.

Mark Lynch got a bye in the first leg but John Doyle 125,100,85 soon got his team mates cheering beating Tony Corr to level it up. Joe Dinnen 100, 100 beat Hugh McShane to put 58 back in front only for Adam McDade 180, 140, 140, 100 (20) to show what he's capable of and equal his lowest 701 darts of the season. Martin Corbett 100, 100, 100, 100 (28) beat Conor Hanna to put 58 3 vs 2 up. Jap Craig got 58's second bye of the match 4 vs 2 but Clonard took the next two games through Tommy Fitzpatrick 123,100 against Damien Corbett and Pearse Maguire against Sean Patterson which meant it was a decider which Tucker Clarke just outlasted John McCann to put Hibs 58 into the Final.

Final D/C Cup:

This was a greatly anticipated final as these two teams have had some great tussles this season with 5 vs 4 results too both teams a regular scoreline when they've met. Not on this occasion though as St. Mathews showed no mercy on the doubles going into a 4 vs 0 lead through Jap McKinley (26) 121, 100, 100, 83, 82 against Joe Dineen. Pat McGahan 100, 85, 81 against Jap Craig. Con Kielty 114, 100, 81, 80 against Sean Patterson 140, 121, 100 and Davy McCusker 131, 100, 100, 81 over Mark Lynch 98, 85, 81. Jim Lynch temporarily stopped the rot in beating an unlucky Jimmy Lavery 102, 100, 100, 95 but not for long as Joe Mcatamney 140, 100, 95, 85, 85 beat Martin Corbett 100, 100, 100, 99, 81 to win the cup for St. Mathews.

Hibs 58 1 vs 5 St.Mathews
