League champions Flanagan’s Army will meet runners-up Wanderers in the Five Towns Quiz League Knockout Cup final for the second successive year.
Flanagan’s Army knocked out highly fancied Golden Lion Dudes while Wanderers overcame finalists three years ago, Railwaymen.
Crofton WMC will have a chance to avenge last year’s Plate Knockout final defeat by RAFA Vulcan Club. They beat Vulcan Bombers to reach the final where they will meet Bombers’ stablemates Vulcan Mosquitoes, who they defeated in the first round, but who qualified for the semi-final as highest scoring losers.
The two finals will take place on Monday, May 21 at a venue to be decided.
Knockout Cup semi-final: Golden Lion Dudes 52, Flanagan’s Army 78; Wanderers 73, Railwaymen 51.
Plate Knockout semi-final: Crofton WMC 72, Vulcan Bombers 63; Vulcan Mosquitoes 73, Rockin’ Gladiators 57.
