BRIGADE made it two wins out of two with a last ball victory at Strabane Park yesterday to take control of Group A in the White Horse Hotel T20.

After a delayed start, Strabane scored 92 for three in their 11 overs but rain reduced the Brigade innings to just eight overs with a DLS target of 68. For the second successive day, David Barr, who scored 35 not out in the victory over Killyclooney, was unbeaten but after he hit seven off the first four balls of the last over, it still left Kyle Magee to hit another seven off the last two balls for victory.

He pulled Aaron Gillespie over the mid-wicket boundary from the fifth ball and cleared the infield but not the rope from the last for a dramatic win.

Two other games matched this for excitement on Saturday. At The Rectory, Bready used up every ball to pass Glendermottís 121 for six. Needing 12 off the last over, Conor Olphert hit Jason Lynchís first ball for six but he still needed to scramble a single off the final delivery to claim the win points.

Earlier, Glendermott debutant Nathan McGuire hit 81 from 62 balls, with six sixes and four fours.

Shock of the day was Bonds Glenís seven wickets victory over Coleraine in another last over finish. Set an imposing 164 to win, they reduced the target to nine from the last six balls but Raymond Curry, who finished 58 not out, made light of that with his hit his fifth six of the innings from the first ball of the over.

Elsewhere, there were easy wins for Newbuildings and Ardmore but it needed an unbroken eighth wicket stand of 32 between Lee Ritchie, who cleared the ropes three times in four balls, and Richard Wylie to get Eglinton to their modest victory target of 91 against Fox Lodge.
