Sligo Rovers eased into the semi-finals with a five-star showing at the Showgrounds.

Captain Danny North bagged a brace and Evan McMillan, Ross Gaynor and newcomer Liam Flatley were also on the scoresheet.

Rovers took the lead when McMillan forced the ball over the line on 11 minutes for his second goal in two games.

North claimed the second after capitalising on a miscue from 'keeper Yohann Lacroix. And he added a second on 41 minutes, when Kalen Spillane's shot was deflected into his path and he smashed home from close range.

Rovers should have had a fourth before the break, but Gaynor's penalty was superbly turned around the post by Lacroix.

It was the 'keeper's last involvement as he was replaced by Sean O'Neill, and Crusaders started the second half brightly with McAllister forcing a save from Richard Brush.

But normal service resumed as Gaynor curled a free-kick into the top corner from the edge of the box after North was fouled.

Substitute Flatley fired home from close range with five minutes left to wrap up the win.

Sligo Rovers – Brush, Conneely, McMillan, Spillane (Ledwith 76), Dykes, Cretaro (Flatley 60), Cawley, O'Conor, Gaynor, Maguire (Djilali 60), North.

Crusaders – Lacroix (O'Neill HT), King, Robinson, E McAllister, Morrow, Hanley, Watson (O'Hanlon 60), Clarke, Owens, D McAllister (Heatley 70), Williamson.

Referee – A Hunter (Fermanagh).
