Derry remain top despite defeat to Greystones

A disappointing afternoon for Ulster teams participating in AIL 2 as they all lost, although Banbridge still lead 2A and City of Derry 2B.

Bann, after defeating Naas 11-0 in October, lost 16-5 in the return game.

Also in 2A, Malone lost 19-17 to Cashel at Gibson Park. In the remaining game Queen's lost by three tries to two at UCC 30-14.

City of Derry knew they would have a tough game at Greystones as they only won 20-17 at Judge's Road. They travelled south and were defeated 18-11.

Second placed Highfield, by virtue of their bonus point win at Seapoint 24-14, have narrowed the gap to 12 points with a game in hand.

Clogher Valley claimed the final place in the Powerade Towns' Cup quarter-finals with a 50-0 victory at Armagh II.

Only four of the Danske Bank Medallion Shield ties were contested with the holders RBAI having the most convincing victory against Friends' 54-3.

Other results: RS Armagh 19 Sullivan Upper 5, Ballyclare High 20 Rainey Endowed 12 and Campbell College 0 Wallace High 13.

Postponed ties to be played tomorrow: Coleraine Grammar v Banbridge Acad, Portadown Col v Methodist Col, Omagh Acad v Limavady Grammar and Belfast RA v RS Dungannon.
