- Glenavon 0 - 1 Carrick Rangers
Carrick Rangers have reached the final of the League Cup for the first time in their history with a 1-0 win over Glenavon at Mourneview Park on Tuesday night.
Hero of the semi-final victory was Tiernan McNicholl who scored the all-important goal on 80 minutes to see the underdogs through.
Glenavon had the advantage of a strong wind in the first half, but failed to take control of the tie with their best chance falling to Eoin Bradley - but Carrick keeper Brian Neeson made a superb one-handed save.
The home side finished the half strongly with Kevin Braniff teeing up Joel Cooper, who drilled a low shot just wide of the target.
The Lurgan Blues were direct in their approach after the restart and almost took the lead when Andy Hall centred for Mark Sykes.
He could not make a clean contact though and Neeson was on hand to smother the ball.
It was not all one-way traffic with Carrick denied a goal as Andy McGrory cleared a Paddy McNally header off the line.
Then Neeson came to the rescue for Carrick with another superb save as he tipped over a James Singleton goal-bound header.
With just 10 minutes left, Carrick stunned the home fans when McNicholl found space in the Glenavon defence and he fired past James Taylor to make it 1-0.
That was enough to see the Amber Army cause an upset and reach the final on 18 February.
