Brigade's title destiny is out of their hands after they lost a thriller by one run against fierce rivals Newbuildings.

Ross Dougherty top-scored with 44, sharing a second wicket stand of 64 with Jason Dunn (30), while there were runs too for Mark Hanna (25) and JT (24).

Andy Britton (3-13) helped apply the brakes but a total of 171 in 29 overs still looked challenging.

Brigade's chase got off to a steady enough start but the required rate kept climbing and in a title run-in that brought added pressure.

David Barr (56) and Cameron Melly though looked to have won it for the hosts -the latter as he hit 71 from just 42 balls (5 fours, 4 sixes).

Jason Dunn caught Barr in spectacular fashion but with Melly rampant, it looked a consolation.

Gregory McFaul struck twice in an over to give his side hope and when he dismissed Melly in his next over, the pressure increased.

Brigade though were still very much in the driving seat with just four needed from the final five balls.

Ross Hunter though kept Brigade to just two leg byes amid scenes of great joy from the sizeable travelling support.

Eglinton gave themselves a real boost in the race for a Premiership slot with Liam Doherty to the fore as they put a severe and possibly fatal dent in Bready's title hopes.

Doherty top-scored with an unbeaten 86 (8 fours, 2 sixes) as he and Andy Millar (53) shared an opening stand of 155 in 33 overs.

A final total of 169 for 2 was adjusted upwards by DLS to a target of 190 in 35 overs, and Bready were never really in the hunt.

Doherty took four wickets, with Mark Averill and Mattie Mills taking two apiece to bowl the visitors out for 116 - Ryan Clarke and Jamie Magee making 25 apiece.

Andy McBrine played a pivotal role with both bat and ball as Donemana gained a crucial win in their Premiership top eight clash with Coleraine.

He top-scored with an even time 45 (5 fours, 1 six) sharing an opening stand of 72 with DJ Dougherty (30). Again rain played a major part with the innings cut to 28 overs - the visitors making 136 for 7 - three wickets for James Bell and two for Rory Knox.

The DLS target was 156 off 28 overs and McBrine took 3 for 12 including Ravi Karunaratne for 0 to leave the Bannsiders in all sorts of strife.

Matty Smyth (29) and Gareth Burns (21*) tried manfully but Donemana were always in control - skipper Dwayne McGerrigle taking two wickets as they closed out a relatively comfortable 42-run win.

A fine all-round effort by Manav Chhabra was the inspiration for Glendermott's third win of the season as they damaged St Johnston's Premiership aspirations with a 106-run win at The Rectory.

He hit 6 sixes and 4 fours in a 26-ball 58 as the home side posted 208 - runs too for Jake Montogmery (30) and Jason Lynch (27).

Michael Rankin claimed four wickets, while there were three for Head Coach Graeme McCarter and two for skipper David Anthony.

The chase never got any legs despite David Macbeth's 36.

The Donegal side managed just 104 with three wickets for Chhabra, Charlie Elder and Jake Montgomery.

Burndennett just missed out on a first win of the Premiership season as they were beaten by 2 runs at Ballyspallen.

Zeeshan Malik (45) and Kyle Morrow (41) were in the runs as the Limavady side made 156 for 7 in their 33 overs.

The Tyrone side needed 170 in the DLS equation but were kept to 167 for 6 in spite of the best efforts of Marty Mehaffey (43), Mark Pollock (32) and some lusty late striking by Derek Curry (30*).

The games between Ardmore v Fox Lodge and Strabane v Bonds Glen were abandoned without a ball bowled and will be played at a later date.
