Gibraltar international Adam Priestley put the Ducks ahead from the penalty spot then Alex Davidson doubled the lead just before the break. Handsworth pulled one back late on but Aquaforce went through to meet Frickley in the final on April 26. That match could be the night after or before their league play-off semi-final, if they fail to catch Evo-Stik Division One South leaders Stafford Rangers. Shaw Lane are six points behind Stafford with a game in hand after they lost a 3-1 lead in a 3-3 draw with Goole on Wednesday. They now need to hope that Stafford slip up in their last two matches to surrender the one automatic promotion place.
Another side likely to finish in the play-offs are Penistone Church in the North East Counties Division One. Church would have guaranteed a place in the top six with victory at Eccleshill on Wednesday but drew 1-1 and now need one more win from their final two games unless the sides below them drop points.In the same division, Worsbrough Bridge had both of their games called off this week and are now due to play their final four matches in six days starting from Monday. They need three wins if they are to finish outside the two-team relegation zone but they could still be saved if Hull United are ejected from the league. Athersley Recreation are six points clear of the NCEL Premier relegation zone after a 2-0 win over Clipstone made it back-to-back victories.
