Sam Harbinson's unbeaten 72 and 3 wickets helped Merrion to a 5-wicket DLS win over Railway Union. Riley Mudford hit 11 boundaries in a quickfire 79 for the visitors, who lost wickets in clusters - including three in four balls by Hugh Kennedy - denied a hat-trick by a spill in the slips. That was part of a spell where the last five wickets added one run and a final total of 194 looked well short. With Harbinson and Dom Joyce in the middle, the DLS target of 151 was passed with three overs and five wickets to spare.

Adam Rosslee's century helped YMCA to a four wickets win at champions Balbriggan. He top-scored with 111 from 93 balls (10 fours, 4 sixes) as he shared a fourth wicket stand of 127 with Ash Burton (43) as YM chased a revised target of 238 to win with 11 balls to spare. Earlier Greg Ford made 95 (14 fours, 1 six) adding 128 with in-form Matthew Pollard (57) as Balbriggan made 266 - three wickets apiece for Tom Anders and Ash Burton.

A Leinster win looked unlikely as Hunter Kindley and Jamie Grassi put on an opening stand of 174 for Malahide. KIndley hit 12 fours in his 102, while Grassi found the boundary nine times in his 83. Younas Ahmadzai pressed the accelerator as he cleared the ropes 6 times and hit 5 fours too in his 71 from 33 balls as Malahide finished on 301 for 5. Rain reduced the target to 233 in 34 and thanks to better than even time 50s from skipper Bilal Azhar and Monil Patel they got ahead of the rate. Peter Francis (35*) and Joe O'Sullivan (18*) sealing the four wickets win in the penultimate over.

Sean McNicholl's five-wickets haul led The Hills to a comfortable win at home to Clontarf. The Irish Australian has been in prolific form in recent weeks and his acquisition has given the Milverton attack an extra dimension. Eoghan Delany (66) and David Vincent (34) shared an opening stand of 60 but thereafter they struggled against McNicholl (5-24) and Nicolaj Laegsgaard (4-34), with only Robert Forrest (31) showing resistance.

A total of 177 was never going to be challenging and it was reduced to 151 after a shower. Cormac McLoughlin made an entertaining 31 (5 fours) after Laegsgaard and Bhavesh Lakhotia went cheaply, but the match was effectively put to bed by a fourth wicket stand of 99 between Murray Commins (59) and Mark Donegan (47*).
