Alexandra march on

Two goals apiece from Emily Beatty and Deirdre Duke ensured Dublin side Alexandra progressed to the FAI Schools Senior Girls Cup final as they saw off Loreto Letterkenny 4-1.

Loreto dominated early on before a Duke move led to Beatty grabbing her first and Alex were unstoppable after that. They face Cork's Christ the King in the final.
