There were cup wins for Brigade, Fox Lodge, Newbuildings and Eglinton in the North West Senior Cup.

Holders Fox Lodge progressed with a 41-run win at home to Glendermott. Travis Nicholl thumped 6 sixes and 4 fours as he top-scored with 63 from 57 balls, sharing an opening stand of 101 with Jason Milligan (34). Gayan Maneeshan made a fine half century and at 189 for 3 in the 38th over they would have been eyeing a total of 300. However the Rectory side fought back with three wickets each for Alan Johnson and Ben Mills, plus two for Gihahn Cloete as the hosts were bowled out for 233.

Three early wickets - including Cloete - saw Glendermott in trouble at 27 for 3, but Alan Johnson (36) and teenager Jake Montgomery (61) rallied with a fourth wicket stand of 75 in 12 overs, A flurry of wickets though saw them in trouble again with three for Levi Kerr. Jason Lynch (40*) struck some defiant late blows, but it was too little, too late as Foxies clinched the 41-run verdict.

Liam Doherty was to the fore as Eglinton brushed aside the challenge of Ardmore in a game that the hosts took control of from the off and never relinquished their grip thereafter. Doherty top-scored with 87 from 65 balls (11 fours, 5 sixes) in a brilliant display of controlled ball striking. He dominated a second wicket stand of 101 with Tommy Orr (42), who also added 102 for the third wicket with Mike Erlank (60) as the villagers posted 274 for 9.

Ardmore's chase never got going, losing a flurry of early wickets with four for Jamie Millar and three apiece for Lee Ritchie and Man-of-the-Match Doherty. Aviwe Mgijima's unbeaten 41 the one bright point of their pitiful 112 all out.

Cameron Melly was the Brigade hero as his unbeaten 109 guided the Beechgrove side to a three-wickets win as they chased 274 to beat Donemana.

The reply had got off to a poor start with Ifty Hussain falling in the first over, but Adam McDaid counter-attack as he hit 8 fours and 3 sixes in a 23-ball 51 to alter the complexion of the contest. Melly and DD Barr broke the back of the chase with a fourth wicket stand of 92, before Geeth Kumara (4-20) trapped Barr lbw for 42.

When the Sri Lanka also accounted for Andy Britton and Ryan Barr in quick succession, it was game on at 220 for 6. However Melly was the immoveable object, hitting 11 fours and 6 sixes in his 85-ball innings, finding the perfect partner in Ryan Macbeth, who played sensibly in their 53-run stand.

Earlier, Kumara's 89 was the highlight of the home side's 274 - with the Macbeth brothers taking three wickets apiece.

Newbuildings are safely into the last four after a comprehensive 141-run verdict over Strabane in the Park.

Batting first Newbuildings batting was solid as 8 of the top 9 made double figures with opener Jason Dunn making a run-a-ball 47 (7 fours, 1 six) and overseas player Hanu Viljoen top-scoring with 67 (5 fours). 23 apiece from Mark Hanna and Charlie Downey saw them reach a competitive 253 for 7.

 Life begins at 40 for 'JT' and he gave himself a birthday present by bagging two wickets at the top of the order including Aaron Gillespie, while among Trent McKeegan's four wickets was the prize scalp of Nasir Nawaz.

The Red Caps slumped to 112 all out on a day when little went right for them.
