A strong second half display from Bangor saw them eventually wear a brave Limavady side down at the Seaside venue.

Bangor built-up a 10 lead with with two unconverted tries from Matthew Agnew.

Limavady responded with two penalties from the accurate boot of Jim McCartney to leave them trailing 10-6 at the break.

The second half saw Bangor control territory and possession for long periods of time.

They adopted an all-out attacking approach and this was rewarded with two tries from centre, Charlie Blair, as well as one try each from Martin Withers and Thomas Boyd. Zach Kerr converted three of these tries.

Limavady were constructive when they did acquire some possession and Mark Woods kept up his fine Schools’ Cup campaign try scoring achievements with a try in the final quarter of the game. McCartney was successful with his conversion attempt to leave the final score reading 36-13.

Bangor will now travel to Ballyclare High in the third round with a home game against Omagh Academy awaiting Limavady in the Bowl quarter-finals.
