Lisnagarvey and Banbridge avoided the Dutch, Belgian and German giants when the EuroHockey League's KO-16 round scheduled for Eindhoven over Easter was drawn.

All-Ireland champions Garvey face Spanish side Atletico Terrassa but if they win then it will be the winners of the Dutch derby between hosts Oranje-Rood and Amsterdam in the quarter-finals.

Bann take on Racing Club de France and if they reach the last eight, then it's the winners of the Belgian derby between Dragons and Bruxelles.

Meanwhile, Ulster schoolboys are in control at the Under-16 and Under-18 inter-provincials at Queen's where both chalked up two wins in the first day's play.

Ewan Butler's U16s were comfortable in their two successes, with Cookstown High's Troy Chambers converting a penalty corner in the 3-1 win over Leinster and then the boys showed no signs of tiredness as they cruised past Munster 5-0, with Chambers netting two more awards.

Shirley McCay's U18s were equally as impressive, seeing off Leinster and Munster on 2-0 scorelines. Both Ulster teams face their Munster counterparts again today and complete the tournaments with the second games against Leinster tomorrow.

U16 inter-provincials (Queen's): Ulster 3 (J Lynch 2, T Chambers) Leinster 1 (R Marchant); Ulster 5 (T Chambers 2, J McGall, R Brown, S Wylie) Munster 0. Today: Ulster v Munster (2pm). Tomorrow: Ulster v Leinster (2pm)

U18 inter-provincials (Queen's): Ulster 2 (J Hermon, B Wallace) Leinster 0; Ulster 2 (M Milliken, M Kerr) Munster 0. Today: Ulster v Munster (4pm). Tomorrow: Ulster v Leinster (4pm)
