EOGHAN Rua Coleraine booked an Ulster Club Championship Football semi-final date with Monaghan champions Scotstown following Sunday's win over Castlerahan of Cavan on Sunday.

The Bannsiders looked to be cruising to victory at half-time, when they led by six points, but a spirited second half comeback by the Breffnimen saw them close the gap to just a single point with ten minutes remaining.

However, Eoghan Rua showed their mettle in the closing stages as they raced clear of their opponents to seal a first ever win  in the competition.

Their reward is a last-four meeting with Scotstown, many peoples' favourites to land the Ulster title.

That game is due to be played on Sunday November 18.
