Brigade edged out Donemana in the game of the day, while Graeme McCarter and Marcus Poskitt scored hundreds in one-wicket wins for St Johnston and Coleraine. There were also wins for Fox Lodge, Killyclooney and Strabane.

The clash between league leaders Donemana and Brigade lived up to its billing as game of the day. A second wicket stand of 128 in 26 overs between Adam McDaid (72) and Ifty Hussain (56) laid the platform for a strong finish.

Scott Macbeth thumped 6 sixes and 2 fours in an unbeaten 65 from just 33 balls, sharing a 7th wicket stand of 72 in just 6 overs with elder brother Ryan as Brigade made 240 for 6.

Donemana were in early trouble at 32 for 3, but a fourth wicket partnership of 100 between Sri Lankan professional Geeth Kumara and William McClintock left the contest in the balance.

McClintock fell for 58, but with Kumara closing in on a century, the required target was 18 off 8 balls. The decisive moment came when Kumara was caught on the boundary for 96 - Brigade going on to win by 10 runs with skipper Andy Britton taking four wickets.

Defending champions Newbuildings lost a thriller in controversial circumstances at home to Coleraine.

Chasing 274, the Bannsiders required 18 off the last two overs with the last pair at the crease.

However, the umpires penalised Newbuildings 12 runs for slow over-rate reducing the target to just six.

Patrick Carson then struck two boundaries to win the game with eight balls to spare.

Marcus Poskitt's brilliant 123 from just 83 balls (19 fours, 5 sixes) spearheaded the chase sharing stands of 88 and 80 with Matthew Smyth (43) and Matthew Hutchinson (34).

Earlier, Newbuildings opener Mark Hanna hit 13 fours and 4 sixes in 90 from just 58 balls, dominating an opening stand of 90 with Jason Dunn.

Ross Dougherty (45) and Hanu Viljoen (40) were also in the runs as the hosts looked to have posted a winning total of 273 for 6 - former Irish youth international Poskitt had other ideas though!

St Johnston Head Coach Graeme McCarter helped the Donegal side to an amazing last-gasp win over Burndennett.

Chasing 206 the Saints looked down and out as three wickets for Mark Pollock and Ross McCay saw them slump to 67 for 7.

However McCarter and Nathan Cole (32) added 74 for the 8th wicket to give them an outside chance.

When the 9th wicket fell, 65 were still required from 7 overs. McCarter though was the hero as the former Irish international hit 11 fours and 10 sixes - four of them in the penultimate over to seal a famous win.

Strabane bounced back from last week's National Cup mauling in Dublin to inflict similar punishment on Ballyspallen.

A second wicket stand of 167 in 21 overs between prolific Pakistan professional Nasir Nawaz and Aaron Gillespie laid the basis for a huge total.

Nawaz top-scored with 121 from 78 balls, hitting 16 fours and 5 sixes. Gillespie hit 7 fours and 4 sixes in his 83 from 74 deliveries, while Ryan Gallagher dominated a fourth wicket stand of 80 in 10 overs with Rhys Logue. Gallagher made an unbeaten 71 from 61 balls (4 fours, 3 sixes) as the Tyrone side posted 323 for 3.

The Ballyspallen chase never got going as they were dismissed for 127 - Stephen Kennedy making 44. There were four wickets apiece for Rhys Logue and Vadivel Moorthy, while Ryan Gallagher took two in the 196-run win.

It was a tale of two centuries at The Rectory as Killyclooney made light work of a 219-run target to win by 9 wickets.

A second wicket stand of 116 between Leyland McElwee (51) and Gihan Cloete put Glendermott in a strong position as they reached 122 for 1.

Cloete went on to make his third century of the season as he hit 20 fours and 6 sixes in his 139 not out - the home side making 218. William Finlay went early in the reply, but that was to be the end of success for the home side,

South African professional Blayde Capell hit 12 fours and 10 sixes in an unbeaten 135 from only 83 balls.

He found a willing partner in teenager Kenzie Hall, who hit 10 fours and 2 sixes in his 78 not out - the duo sharing an unbroken second wicket stand of 212 in 27 overs sealing a 9-wickets win.

Fox Lodge returned to the scene of their most famous win, as they beat Eglinton by 26 runs.

Half centuries for Craig Doherty (59) and Johnny Robinson (58) rescued the Ballymagorry side from a precarious 43 to 4.

The pair shared a 5th wicket stand of 97 as Fox Lodge made 200 - three wickets for Lee Ritchie, Andy and Jamie Millar.

Eglinton were always playing catch up in the chase despite 60 from Andy Millar (5 fours, 3 sixes).

Two wickets apiece for Ramey Harpur, Aaron Heywood and Gayan Maneeshan seeing the villagers 174 all out - Jonny Robinson taking off the pads to claim the last wicket.

The Bready versus Ardmore match was postponed with the Bleachgreen side travelling to Cork for their Irish Cup replay. The game will now be played on Sunday June 18th.
