Enniskillen and Bangor joined Omagh and Clogher Valley in the last four of the Powerade Towns' Cup following wins over Ballynahinch II (16-0) and Donaghadee (48-3) on Saturday afternoon.

It was a tremendous effort by Enniskillen against a Hinch side that retained the ball well but yet could not penetrate the strong home defence.

The visitors started with strong intention, however, Enniskillen held them at bay before Adam Lendrum kicked two penalties.

This gave them extra confidence and on the half-hour centre Matty Maguire broke the Hinch cover to go in for Lendrum to convert.

He later added a third penalty and there was no scoring in the second period although Hinch pressed hard.

In the other tie, which was switched to Upritchard Park after a second postponement, Bangor ran in eight tries against Donaghadee.

David Bradford and Mark Widdowson bagged two tries each, while the other touchdowns came from Ross McCloskey, Craig Burton, Davy Charles and Darren Kelly.

Widdowson was successful with four conversions for the Junior Cup holders who must now be favourites to win the 'double'.

The semi-final draw will be made at the Kingspan Stadium this afternoon.
