The fourth round matches in the 2012-13 League Cup took place on Monday, and after a couple of tight matches the line-up for Finals Day is now complete.  Sealand Sliders took a peel with Mid Wales Vikings, meaning the Vikings rather than the Sliders go into the High Road Final. Sealand Whackers do make the High Road, courtesy of a win over Deeside Curling Club.
