Anglesea Road, 18 May.
Merrion 190 (40.4 overs, Raymond Curry 78, Gary McClintock 25, Levi Dougherty 23, Rumesh Buddhika 21, Melvin Devaraj 5-35)
Donemana 191-0 (27.2 overs, Stephen Doheny 106*, Swapnil Modgill 72*)
Centurion Stephen Doheny (CricketEurope)
Two times Merrion had little trouble accounting for Donemana as they chased 190 to win by 10 wickets in the 28th over. Irish international Stephen Doheny hit an unbeaten 106 from just 81 balls that included 14 fours and 2 sixes. He found a willing ally in fellow opener Swapnil Modgill who made an unbeaten 72 in their stand of 191. Earlier Raymond Curry stroked 13 boundaries in his stylish 78, but from looking well placed at 80 for 0 and 147 for 4, the Tyrone side faltered to be dismissed for 190 - five wickets for Melvin Devaraj.
Irish Cup

Sydney Parade, 18 May.
Pembroke 394-7 (50 overs: Nick Stapleton 144, Tim Tector 124, Gavin Hoey 35, Danny Hogan 31, Jack Tector 28; Lee Ritchie 2-56)

Centurions Tim Tector and Nick Stapleton (CricketEurope)
2019 winners Pembroke brushed aside Coleraine, encountering little trouble as they won by a whopping 284 runs at Sydney Parade. Nick Stapleton and Tim Tector both made hundreds as they added 184 in 30 overs as the hosts plundered 394 for 7. Stapleton top-scored with 144 from 121 balls, hitting 9 fours and 8 sixes, while Tector's 124 from 100 deliveries included 13 fours and 3 sixes. Gavin Hoey hit four sixes in a quickfire 35, while Danny Hogan cleared the ropes twice in a hard-hit 31. The visitors never laid a glove in the reply as Scott Campbell's 36 was the best of their 110 - four wickets for Paul Lawson and three for Gavin Hoey.
Irish Cup
Round 1: Railway Union beat Cliftonville Academy by 74 runs
Park Avenue, 18 May.
Railway Union 224 (49.1 overs; Hedayat Ullah Khogiana 103, Liam McCarthy 22; Andrew Forbes 2-16, Matty McCord 2-43, Abhishek Raut 2-49)

Hedayat scored a hundred (CricketEurope)
A superb century from young Afghanistan batsman Hedayat Ullah Khogiani was the catalyst for Railway Union's 74-run win over Cliftonville Academy at Park Avenue. He held the innings together with 103 (8 fours, 1 six) after they were struggling at 24 for 3. He added 55 for the 5th wicket with skipper Liam McCarthy (22) as they finished on 224. Tommy Orr top-scored with 33 in the reply, but three wickets for Sean O'Brien and Srihan Karpe, plus two for McCarthy closed out the win and ensured progress to the last 16.
Irish Cup
Round 1: Malahide beat Lisburn by 2 wickets
The Village, 18 May.
Lisburn 229 (49.4 overs; Faiz Fazal 81, Neil Whitworth 72; James Newland 3-45, Jeremy Martins 3-34, K Donnelly 2-39, M Frost 2-39)
Malahide 231/8 (49.2 overs; Jeremy Martins 73, Mohit Sane 43, Andrew Sheridan 33*, M Ford 26; Faiz Fazal 3-30, Neil Whitworth 2-47)
Malahide edged out Lisburn in a last over thriller in probably the game of the day. The Wallace Park side will rue throwing away a great position as a third wicket stand of 145 between Faiz Fazal and Neil Whitworth took them to 190 for 2 in the 40th over. However, from there they only added 39 to be 229 all out - three wickets apiece for James Newland and Jeremy Martins. The home side were in difficulty in the chase at 62 for 4, but Martins top-scored with an even time 73 (7 fours, 1 six), adding 112 for the 5th wicket with Mohit Sane (43). The game was still in the balance at 197 for 8, but Andrew Sheridan's unbeaten 33 got Malahide over the line with two balls to spare.

North Down side that beat Ardmore by 14 runs (CricketEurope)
North Down got the better of Ardmore in a close contest at The Bleachgreen with the Comber side winning by 14 runs. Ani Chore hit 6 fours in his 79 as the visitors posted 185 - three wickets for Harry Zimmermann and skipper Rachit Gaur, while Conor Brolly bowled an excellent ten-over spell to claim 2 for 12. Kerwin Mungroo (3-28) made early inroads in the chase,and at 87 for 5, Ardmore looked beaten. However, Ciaran Roundtree counterattacked as he added 64 for the 6th wicket with Mark Chambers. Liam Hayman (3-27) however got three wickets and despite Roundtree's 87 from 78 balls (8 fours, 4 sixes), Ardmore were 171 all out in the 40th over.

Stormont, 18 May.

Newbuildings 176 (40.3 overs; Gareth McKeegan 65, Ryan Hunter 38, Ross Dougherty 34; Adam Leckey 3-28, Jordan Neill 2-30, Matthew Foster 2-33)
Jordan Neill (CricketEurope)

Thompson shared an unbroken 5th wicket stand of 128 in 19 overs with Paddy Beverland (36*). Earlier, Jordan Neill also made a half century, hitting 7 fours and 2 sixes in his 73 as the Stormont side posted 252 for 4.

McKeegan top scored with 65 (7 fours, 3 sixes), but his demise at 139 for 3 sparked a collapse as they lost 7 wickets for just 37 runs to be 176 all out - three wickets for Adam Leckey and two apiece for Jordan Neill and Matthew Foster.
Irish Cup
Round 1: Carrickfergus lost to The Hills by 4 wickets
Middle Road, 18 May.
Carrickfergus 217 (49.1 overs; Michael Gilmour 72, Jake Egan 55, Ruan Haasbroek 36; Febin Manoj 3-22, Matthew Weldon 3-60)
The Hills 218-6 (46.5 overs; Andrew Kavanagh 61, Tomas Rooney Murphy 61, Nicolaj Laegsgaard 29; Prince Sharma 4-49)
Febin Manoj took 3 wickets on his senior debut (CricketEurope)
The Hills travelled to Carrickfergus and safely progressed to the last 16 with a hard fought four-wicket win. Contrasting half centuries from Michael Gilmour and Jake Egan helped the hosts post 217. Gilmour top-scored with 72 (6 fours, 4 sixes), while Egan's 55 included 4 fours and a six. Teenagers Febin Manoj (3-22) and Matthew Weldon (3-60) took three wickets apiece. Andrew Kavanagh and Tomas Rooney-Murphy each made 61 in a second wicket stand of 93, and at 189 for 2, the result looked a foregone conclusion. However, four wickets for Prince Sharma (4-49) saw the innings stutter before they clinched victory in the 47th over.
Irish Cup
Round 1: Instonians beat Eglinton by 142 runs
Shaw's Bridge, 18 May.
Instonians 307/5 (50 overs: Robert McKinley 107, Nikolai Smith 89, Ollie Metcalfe 64; Mark Averill 2-71)
Eglinton 165 (33.2 overs: Andy Millar 55, Ross McLaughlin 39; Cian Robertson 4-21, Ben Rose 4-52)
A century opening partnership between Ollie Metcalfe and Rob McKinley set Instonians on their way to 300+ total at Shaw's Bridge. After the departure of Metcalfe Instonians skipper Nikolai Smith and McKinley added a further 165 for the second, with McKinley finally falling for 107. The total was just short of 300 when Smith was out for 89 (9x4,3x6) no doubt satisfied that his side were well on their way to a win. Andy Millar had other ideas and the big left-handed opener raced to 55 off 40 balls (4x4, 5x6) before Ben Rose struck a massive blow for the home side in the space of two balls. The penultimate ball of the powerplay saw him bowl Miller and next ball a catch by Adam Ly saw professional Lahiru Dilshan depart without scoring, 72/0 had suddenly become 72/2 with both of the big threats gone. Rose made it a family affair as he claimed the wickets of the other two Miller brothers, both to Metcalfe catches. Cian Robertson was back to his parsimonious best, claiming 4-21 in his allotted ten overs as he and Andy White polished off what remained of the Eglinton lineup with only Ross McLaughlin providing any resistance.
Irish Cup
Round 1: Killyclooney lost to Clontarf by 10 wickets
Killyclooney, 18 May.
Killyclooney 171 (31.1 overs: Mark Gordon 61, Kenzie Hall 45; David Vincent 4-36, David Delany 3-52)
Clontarf 176/0 (19.4 overs: Eoghan Delany 76*, David Vincent 73*)
David Vincent and Eoghan Delany shared an unbroken stand of 176 (CricketEurope)
An unbroken first wicket stand of 176 in under 20 overs between skipper Eoghan Delany and David Vincent hurried Clontarf to a 10-wicket win at Killyclooney. Delany's 76 came from just 50 balls and included 11 fours and 3 sixes, while Vincent's 73 from 69 deliveries saw hit stroke 10 fours and clear the ropes twice. The home side's 171 owed much to Mark Gordon with the left-hander hitting 6 sixes and 5 fours in a powerful 61 from 49 balls, while Kenzie Hall clubbed four sixes in his 45. David Vincent's four wickets would have meant he was a shoo-in for the Man of the Match if there was one, while David Delany took 3 for 52.
Irish Cup
Round 1: Bready lost to Phoenix by 258 runs
Magheramason, 18 May.
Phoenix 374/5 (50 overs; Jack Lalor 201*, Shane Getkate 77, Tyrone Kane 44; Pearce Ryan 2-63)
Bready 116 (26 overs; Gavin Roulston 45, Kyle Magee 28; Theo Dempsey 2-7, Tyrone Kane 2-23, Ash Bain 2-48)
Jack Lalor scored 201 (CricketEurope)
Jack Lalor's 201 not out propelled Phoenix to an emphatic 258-run win over Bready at Magheramason. The Australian hit 20 fours and 7 sixes in his brilliant knock, adding 90 for the 4th wicket with Tyrone Kane (44) and 169 for the 5th with Shane Getkate - who hit 6 sixes in his 77 from 45 balls. A final total of 374 for 5 was always going to be daunting, and the hosts never really got going despite Gavin Roulston's 45 and 28 from Kyle Magee. To add to Bready's woes Davy Scanlon suffered a stress fracture of his arm and was unable to bat - their innings closing on 116. A day to remember then for Lalor who has previously been in the Melbourne Renegades Big Bash squad, but never played.

Brigade 314/8 (50 overs; Scott Macbeth 123, Adam McDaid 61, Iftikhar Hussain 39, Aditya Adey 4-69, Ruhan Pretorius 2-45)
Woodvale 195 (40.1 overs; Ruhan Pretorius 103, Andy Britton 4-25)
Centurion Scott Macbeth (CricketEurope)
It was a tale of two centuries at Beechgrove with two of the country's in-form players going head-to head. Brigade batted first and plundered 314 for 8 with Macbeth hitting 12 sixes - one of which cleared the clubhouse - on his way to 123 off 87 balls. He added 136 for the 3rd wicket in 20 overs with Adam McDaid, who hit 7 fours in his 61. Woodvale's chase was all about Pretorius who also reached three figures - hitting 10 fours and 5 sixes in his 103 from 90 balls. He received little help and with home skipper Andy Britton taking four wickets, Woodvale were 195 all out - losing by 119 runs. Brigade therefore the only NW side in the last 16 draw.
