Fox missed several chances early on before Aaron Webb put Fratellos ahead just before the break.

Village Inn booked their passage to the semis with a 3-1 win over Queensfield.

Down 1-0 to a goal from the penalty spot in the first half, Village rallied and efforts from Craig Alexander (2) and Andi Drinkwater gave them the victory.

However, straight from the restart Nigel Baker restored the two-goal cushion before Ash Piotrowski completed the scoring with a magnificent solo effort, chipping over the defender before smashing the ball home.

In the Premier Division, Swiss Chalet beat Auto Engine Tune 3-2.
