Troy Chambers and Oliver Kidd both netted hat-tricks on day one of the tournament which continues on Thursday and concludes on Friday with the semi-finals and final.
Chambers’ treble helped Wallace High to a 5-0 win over seven-times champions RBAI in which Adam and Ben Clarke were also on target.
Kidd, meanwhile, also hit three goals as Wallace’s Lisburn rivals defeated Methodist College 4-1.
Banbridge Academy, who were the last Ulster winners in 2014, were 2-0 winners over Bangor Grammar with goals from Eddie Rowe and Harry Lockhart while Sullivan Upper beat Regent House 3-2.
