Marcus Renford scored twice as Dynamics came from behind to beat Eagles FC 2-1 and reach the Dickie Davies Cup final.
Joseph Andrews put Eagles in front, but they were powerless to stop Renford, and Dynamics will now face either Boroughs United or FC Bartlett in the final.
Top Red prevailed against El Valiente to reach the final of the Jack Walpole Cup in an 11-goal thriller, with John Barber scoring a hat-trick in a 6-5 triumph.
Henry Swales’ double had put Top Red in control but El Valiente stormed back through Shaun Bernard, James Bird and a brace from Uli Izzea before Barber sent the game to extra time.
Joe Hands then cancelled out Sam Melody’s goal for Top Red but Barber had the final say.
