Kyle Magee held his nerve to get Brigade over the line in another last ball thriller in the NW T20 Cup against Strabane on Sunday.

The Ireland Under 19 international belied his youth as with seven needed from the last two balls, he cleared the midwicket boundary from the penultimate delivery to tie the scores, and then pulled Aaron Gillespie's final ball to the boundary.

Magee punched the air in celebration, as the Beechgrove side made it two wins from two.

In a contest reduced to 11 overs after a 70-minute delay, Strabane would have been happy with 92 for 3, with Tom Harpur (36*), Aaron Gillespie (33) and debutant Ehtesham Ahmed (19) all in the runs.

Skipper Gillespie cleared the ropes four times, while Harpur - son of former Irish international Tommy - hit three maximums.

In the reply, David Barr and Andy Britton raced out of the blocks, 32 on the board after two overs.

Ahmed had Britton caught for 19 on the long-on boundary, as the Red Caps clawed themselves back.

When a shower stopped play, Brigade had moved on to 45 for 1 after 5.1 overs - 5 ahead on DLS.

Credit to umpires Killen and Kennedy, they got the teams back on and the new target was 68 off 8 - a further 23 needed off 17 balls.

Ifty Hussain was run out two balls after the restart as Ahmed kept it tight. Chris Havern bowled a tight penultimate over and with 14 needed off the last, the pendulum had swung back towards Strabane.

Barr (32*) got seven from the first four balls, before Magee finished the job in dramatic fashion.

At Strabane Park, Brigade (24pts) beat Strabane (1pt) by 8 wickets. Strabane 92-3 (11 overs; T Harpur 36*, A Gillespie 33, E Ahmed 19) Brigade ( revised target 68 off 8) 71-3 (8 overs; D Barr 32*, A Britton 19), K Magee 14*
