COLERAINE dropped out of the Towns' Cup on Saturday when they lost out at home to Randalstown.
It was a close first half and at the break the Bannsiders held a slender lead (5-3).
In the second half, Randalstown punished Coleraine indiscretion with two penalty conversions followed by a converted try to secure the lead.
A late Coleraine try was not enough to turn the tide and the home side exited the cup with the scoreline reading 10-16.
The first points went to the visitors with a penalty after twenty minutes (0-3).
With twenty minutes on the clock it was Coleraine captain Bokkie Carstens who made a decisive break in the centre of the park, outpacing and evading the defence to score an unconverted try (5-3).
In the second half Randalstown scored from a penalty after twelve minutes as Coleraine infringed on their own ten-metre line (5-6).
Five minutes later the visitors missed a penalty but did score when they were awarded another a short time later (5-9).
