Erin FC and San Fernando Giants will contest the Southern Football Association (SFA) Executive Cup final at the David Williams Recreation Ground, on Wednesday at Penal from 7pm.

This after both teams registered contrasting semifinal wins to book places in the $8,000 final.

On Thursday playing at home on a heavy surface, Erin FC made full use of the unpleasant conditions for "Big Six" champions Pitchment FC and came away with a resounding 6-1 triumph.

The duo of Akil Sanchez and Daniel Henry scored two goals each for Erin FC while Keion Alexander and Sebastien Bailey chipped in with one each to cancel out Akilor Gregoire's lone reply.

A day later at Penal, Giants battled to a 5-4 penalty-kicks victory over Santa Flora United after both teams played to a 2-2 draw at the end of regulation-time with Jamal Dubarry scoring twice for the eventual winners, and Isaiah Taylor, a double for Santa Flora.

The winners of Wednesday's final will get $5,000 while second takes home $3,000.
