The Hills are through to the Leinster Senior Cup final after they beat Leinster by six wickets in a high scoring T20 replay at Milverton.

Leinster posted 168 for 6 with Monil Patel top scoring with 68 from just 40 balls, sharing a fourth wicket partnership of 86 in 9 overs with Saqib Bahadur (41).

The chase began with an opening stand of 64 in 9 overs between Murray Commins and Cormac McLoughlin-Gavin (27).

The contest was decided by a whirlwind second wicket partnership of 68 in just 5 overs between Commins - whose 80 from 52 deliveries included 9 fours and 3 sixes - and Nathan Rooney, who cleared the ropes three times in his 36 from only 15 balls.

The Hills wobbled slightly with the finishing line in sight, but secured the win with five balls to spare.

They will face Clontarf in the decider at Sydney Parade on August 5th.

Cup specialists Clontarf won a last over thriller against a Railway Union side who will be wondering just how they managed to lose by two runs.

Chasing 128, the home side were coasting at 80 for 2 just past the midway point before they imploded.

Luke Thomson took four wickets and David Delany two for the Castle Avenue side - Thomson securing the run out off the penultimate ball too in a dramatic finale.

Irish international Fionn Hand had top-scored with 32 for Clontarf in what looked a modest 127 for 9 - it was indeed modest, but pressure does funny things to teams and this semi-final was no exception.
