Ulster Senior League: City of Derry power to victory in Tyrone

City of Derry's victory over Dungannon in the First Trust Senior League was the surprise result of the evening.

Dungannon went ahead with a Mark Liddle try converted by James Shiels but superb play by the visitors just before and after half-time in which three tries were scored sealed the fate of the home team.

Michael Lawton had a try while Jason Bloomfield kicked two penalties and Shiels one. Derry scorers were Stephen Corr, Peter Henderson and William McClerrie while Richard McCarter kicked a penalty and three conversions. Richard Brady also had a penalty in a 27-21 victory.

Queen's also upset the odds by the margin of their |27-5 win at Belfast Harlequins. It was a very poor display for Quins who are looking for their first victory in the competition.

They could only provide a Davy Creighton try while James Gormley, David Swann, Robbie Stewart and Darryl Rooney touched down for the students for David Cartmill to convert two and add a penalty

Banbridge overcame Rainey 43-28. Robin Thompson was in good kicking form with five conversions to tries from Jason Pollock, Johnny Little (2), Stephen Cowan, Ryan Patterson and Neville Farr. Mark |O'Connor scored a try for the visitors and converted all four tries .

Instonians had a 29-14 success against Malone. Josh Pentland kicked three penalties and Shane Kelly had a try for Malone. Inst dominated most of the game and had tries from Seamus Mallon, two, Gary Mitchell and Michael Sergeant. Nick Finlay had a penalty and three conversions.
