Edrees Kharotai took five wickets as Ardmore ended Killyclooney's title hopes and keep alive their own hopes of a first Premiership title going into the final weekend of the season.

Edrees took 5 for 15, while Conor Brolly picked up three wickets and Harry Zimmermann two as Killyclooney were bundled out for just 83.

While the result was never really in doubt, Ardmore were aware of the need to secure valuable bonus points, and they managed to get 4 of the 5 available thanks to 25 from skipper Rachit Gaur and an unbeaten 18 from Zimmermann.

The Bleachgreen side lead Brigade by 7 points with two matches left.

Ardmore travel to Donemana on Saturday and host Fox Lodge on Sunday 10th.

Brigade are at St Johnston tomorrow (SUN), and finish their season with a home game against Killyclooney next Saturday (9th).

A fine all-round performance by Ravi Karunaratne gave Coleraine's Premiership hopes a lift as they secured a maximum point win over Ballyspallen.

The Sri Lankan top-scored with 79 (7 fours, 2 sixes) as the Bannsiders posted 161 - Matty Smyth chipping in with 27.

Zeeshan Malik' 49 took the visitors to 68 for 2 before the wheels came off.

Ravi took 4 for 19 as 'Spallen lost eight wickets for 22 to be 90 all out.

Newbuildings took an important step towards ensuring a Premiership berth as they beat Bonds Glen by 8 wickets.

David Cooke top-scored with 51 * fours, 1 six), while Raymond Curry cleared the ropes three times in his 32 as the Bee Gees made a modest 132.

Ross Hunter took 3 for 19, Charlie Downey 2-20, but it was Jason Dunn (4-20) who was the most successful.

'Bull' then top-scored for good measure as he made a run-a-ball 68 ( 5 fours, 4 sixes) adding an unbroken 115 in 18 overs for the third wicket with Ryan Hunter, who hit 9 fours in his 57 not out.

Newbuildings are back in action on Sunday at home to Donemana.

Bready completed their campaign with an 8 wicket win over Glendermott in a game that had very much an end of season feel to it.

The Rectory side made just 96 batting first, with Alan Johnson's 25 the best effort.

Nathan McCombe took 4 for 5 including three wickets in four balls to end the innings, while there was two wickets for Gavin Roulston.

The chase was pretty straightforward with Kyle Magee's unbeaten 54 (3 fours, 2 sixes) sealing the win in just the 15th over.

Mark Pollock put a severe dent in Fox Lodge's Premiership ambitions as Burndennett won the Tyrone derby by 5 wickets chasing 200.

Craig Doherty hit 6 sixes in a top-score of 52 as he and Brian Allen (51) put on 72 in 15 overs for the 5th wicket.

Gayan Maneeshan had earlier made 35, while there were two wickets apiece for Mark Pollock, Derek Curry and Andrew Barr.

Pollock hit 7 fours and 2 sixes in his 74 from 76 balls, sharing stands of 66 for both the second and fourth wickets with Corey Roulston (35) and Coach Niall McDonnell (36*).

Andrew Barr chipped in with 21 as Burndennett got that elusive first win of the season. All is not lost yet for Fox Lodge who face a crucial clash at home to Coleraine on Sunday.

Donemana gained another vital win in their Premiership quest as Strabane imploded to lose by 6 wickets.

Batting first, Strabane recovered from the early loss of Nasir Nawa thanks to a second wicket stand of 96 between Aaron Gillespie and Kevin Gallagher (35).

The dismissal of Gillespie for a top score of 81 from just 56 balls (8 fours, 5 sixes) sparked an incredible collapse from 122 for 2 to 129 all out.

William (5-25) and Andy McBrine (3-11) the chief architects of their demise.

Andy top-scored with an even time 47 (5 fours, 3 sixes) as he and Gary McClintock (30) added 71 for the second wicket.

William McClintock then hit four sixes in an unbeaten 33 as they clinched the win in the 23rd over.

A last wicket stand of 46 in 12 overs has all but ensured a Premiership place for Eglinton and ended St Johnston's top flight ambitions.

Batting first the Saints recovered from 58 for 6 thanks to a 7th wicket stand of 57 between skipper David Anthony - who hit four sixes in his 43 and Ian Macbeth (22).

Jamie Millar took three wickets and it was he who proved the batting hero for the villagers.

Graeme McCarter took 5 for 19 as the visitors slumped from 52 for 2 to 87 for 9. 

Millar hit 6 fours and 4 sixes in his 70 not out, and he found a willing ally in Dylan Young, who survived 27 balls for his one run.

A remarkable win in a game that could have gone either way but for Millar's heroics.
