Ballymena Academy will face RBAI in the semi-finals of this year’s Danske Bank Schools’ Cup.

The sides were paired together in the last four draw, which took place following the completion of the four quarter-finals today.

Earlier, a large crowd had watched John Andrews’ side defeat Belfast Royal Academy by 20 points to nine in a hard-fought tussle at the Galgorm Road venue.

The winners of the Academy v RBAI tie will meet the winners of the Campbell College v Dalriada encounter in the St Patrick’s Day final.
