There were mixed fortunes for the two Ulster Clubs in Saturday's Irish Senior Cup quarter-final ties.

In Dublin, in what was a repeat of last year's final, Banbridge succumbed yet again to Leinster kingpins Monkstown, despite taking an early lead through penalty corner specialist Stephen Dowds. Gareth Watkins, Lee Cole and Kyle Good replied for the Monks.

For Lisnagarvey though it was a different story as they thrashed Dublin visitors Glenanne 7-2.

Timmy Cockram opened the scoring for the Blues in the seventh minute, before Brian O'Mailley equalised four minutes before the break.

Three goals in the space of 10 minutes at the start of the second-half effectively ended the game as a contest. Cockram struck a powerful penalty corner in the 37th minute, Andy Williamson's opportunism brought about another goal less than 60 seconds later and Mark Raphael then scored to send the home fans into raptures.

Twelve minutes from time, 17-year-old Daniel Nelson wreaked more havoc on the visitors defence with a fine finish.

A flurry of goals in the last three minutes saw the Gary Shaw pull a goal back for the Glens, only for Jason Lynch to make it six straight from the hit-off and then Cockram sealed his hat-trick with his 40th goal of the season to complete the rout.

Garvey now await the semi-final draw knowing that on this form they are the side to fear for the three Dublin protagonists, Monkstown, Pembroke Wanderers who beat Corinthian 4-0 and Three Rock Rovers, 7-2 conquerors of Fingal.
