UL Bohs were admittedly short several regulars, but Belfast Harlequins owned the second half as they romped to a comfortable win in round two of the AIB Cup.
John Mills for Harlequins and Fergal Lawlor for UL Bohemians exchanged first half penalties in an even affair which suggest a close finish.
But five minutes into the second half, powerful prop Alatise Ale had a 'Quins try which Mills converted.
Once in front, the Belfast outfit forced UL into making many errors and they paid for their indiscipline when Mills put over penalties in the 70th and 75th minutes to effectively end the game as a contest.
But "Quins were not finished and two minutes from the end, Colm Atkinson charged in for a try that Mills again converted to continue the miserable start to their season for Bohs.
Buccaneers' AIB Cup charge fell at the first hurdle as Shannon won an eleven-try thriller at Corbally, powering to a 49-26 success.
Shannon led 20-14 at the interval but found themselves a point behind early in the second half.
Limerick Gaelic footballer Stephen Kelly had a great outing by scoring three tries and Andrew Finn touched down twice.
Neither side is enjoying the best of form so far this season and this win, and the manner in which it was achieved, will be pleasing to Shannon coach Colm Tucker.
