Glynn-Barntown now await the winners of tonight's Oulart-The Ballagh versus Oylegate-Glenbrien clash in the last eight, while Rathgarogue-Cushinstown will take on the losers in the new Premier 'B' championship.
Both sides showed the kind of rustiness that one would expect from an opening round fixture, with the victors shooting 14 wides while the opposition had eight.
Another area for Glynn-Barntown to address will be their tendency to give away frees, with 18 conceded in various areas of the field while a mere eight were gained.
Matthew Joyce, a player with plenty of Senior experience, got them off to a bright start with the game's first three points inside eight minutes, two from play.
Defeat yes, but this group of players continued a great Rangers tradition of taking on and beating teams from more celebrated hurling counties.
