The Blayde Capell bandwagon rolls on as his sixth century of the season took his run tally to a whopping 1370 as Killyclooney beat Bonds Glen to stay top of the group. His 149 from 65 balls included 17 sixes and 7 fours, sharing an opening stand of 102 with William Finlay (36), before stepping on the gas in a third wicket partnership of 92 in 34 balls with skipper Timmy Dougherty. He hit 3 sixes in an over three times and you get the feeling that he may go for 6 sixes in an over sometime soon!

A final tally of 211 for 4 was always out of the Bee Gees reach, ending on 144. Kenzie Hall's four wickets haul took his season tally to 31, making it a Killyclooney double in the run charts.

Ifty Hussain took three wickets and top-scored with 74 against his old club as Brigade beat Fox Lodge easily to move top of Group D. The hosts had looked well placed at 70 for 2 at the halfway stage thanks to cameos from Johnny Robinson (32) and Gayan Maneeshan (23). However, thanks to Hussain (3-17), and two wickets apiece for the Macbeth brothers, they faltered to 118 for 9.

Ifty then dominated an opening stand of 77 in 11 overs with DD Barr (18) which left the result in no doubt. His 74 from 48 balls included 13 fours and 2 sixes, while Scott Macbeth (24) was also in the runs in a fine all-round display by the Beechgrove side.

Strabane brushed aside the challenge of Ballyspallen to keep their group hopes alive with an emphatic 8-wickets win. The hosts could only muster 57, with three wickets apiece for Ryan Gallagher, Nasir Nawaz and Andrew Mullen.

Nawaz (28*) and Gallagher (20) were also in the runs as they eased to victory in the 9th over.

Holders Newbuildings were given a scare by Burndennett, but recovered to stay top of the group with a seven wickets win. Head Coach Niall McDonnell (35) shared an opening stand of 85 with in-form Mark Pollock, and a total of 170 plus looked on the cards. Pollock hit 12 fours and cleared the ropes twice in his 84 from 57 balls, taking his season total to 518 runs.

A final total of 150 looked a little light but two wickets for Conan Pollock had the hosts slightly behind at 70 for 3 in the 12th over. Hanu Viljoen though hit 5 fours and 4 sixes in an unbeaten 67, sharing an unbroken 4th wicket stand of 83 in 8 overs with Hanu Viljoen to seal the win with seven balls to spare.

Eglinton powered to a resounding 87-run win over Glendermott that sets them up nicely for the weekend challenges ahead. Andy Millar (37) and Liam Doherty (34) got them off to a brisk start with an opening stand of 64, while skipper Tommy Orr top-scored with 65 (6 fours, 2 sixes) adding a further 56 with Mike Erlank (24) as they posted 183 for 4.

The Rectory side lost Gihahn Cloete in the first over to Andy Millar (3-17) and never threatened thereafter, closing on 96 for 8 - two wickets for Josh Martin.

Ardmore leapfrogged Coleraine to the top of the group with a comfortable eight wickets win at Sandel Lodge. The Bannsiders were never able to really break the shackles of the visitors attack, despite a run-a-ball 34 from Marcus Poskitt - who retired hurt after slipping while batting - and a top score of 39 from Ravi Karunaratne that included 3 sixes.

Chasing 115, openers Dharm Singh and Rachit Gaur added 89 to all but settle the contest. Singh top-scored with 54 from 40 balls (4 fours, 3 sixes), while skipper Gaur hit 5 fours in his 36.

St Johnston ended Bready's hopes of winning the group as they beat them by 5 wickets at The Boathole. Irosh hit 5 fours and 3 sixes in a top-score of 56, adding 83 in 11 overs with Davy Rankin (46), but their total of 129 from 6 looked a little light.

The Saints though looked to struggling at the halfway point of the chase on 51 for 4. However, Coach Graeme McCarter hit 4 fours and 3 maximums in his 48, adding 72 in 9 overs with David Macbeth (35*) to change the complexion of the match. Ian Macbeth then hit two boundaries to seal the final overs win.
