Steve Lazars and skipper David Scanlon rescued Bready from a precarious 58 for 5 as they won a last over thriller against Newbuildings. Wins too for Glendermott, Eglinton, Fox Lodge, Donemana, Strabane and Eglinton.

Disappointment though for St Johnston, who first appearance of the season will have to wait as their game at Ardmore was called off at a soggy Bleachgreen.

Lazars was the hero for Bready as they looked down and out as the required rate climbed to almost 10 as they chased 116 against Newbuildings.

With 22 needed from 12 balls, 20 came off the penultimate over as Lazars (34*) struck two sixes to all but seal the win.

He and skipper Scanlon (24) shared a 5th wicket stand of 51 in 40 balls, with 'Sca's' reverse swept six the shot of the day.

Ryan Hunter (31) top scored in the Newbuildings total of 116 for 8, with Gareth McKeegan making 20, while Ben Mills' hard-hit 28 not out included three sixes and a four.

Lazars (3-29) was the most successful with the ball, while Ian Young (2-8) had a superb spell as he bowled both Gareth McKeegan and Ross Dougherty.

Donemana ran out emphatic nine-wicket winners against Ballyspallen, who could only muster 97-7 in their 50 overs. Jacob Logan-Wilson hit 5 sixes and 2 fours in his 59 as yet again he ploughed a lonely furrow.

Dean Mehaffey (3-9) and William McBrine (2-19) were the best of the Donemana bowlers .

William McClintock was a man in a hurry to watch the cup final as he hit 8 sixes and 3 fours on his way to 69 , sharing an opening stand of 91 with Jamie Huey, whose unbeaten 28 saw the senior cup holders romp home.

Steve Moore didn't fancy running too much either, as he went one better than McClintock, as he hit 9 sixes in an unbeaten 69 from just 28 balls as Glendermott scored 184-4 at Burndennett.

He shared a fourth wicket stand of 97 in 45 balls with Rectory captain Alan Johnson, who made 36 not out and Bob Robinson 29.

Burndennett's Mark Pollock hit an unbeaten 40 in the chase, with contributions too from Mark Roulston 34 not out and Eddie McGettigan 31.

In truth they were never up with the required rate at any stage, finishing 51 runs adrift on 133-3

Strabane were convincing eight-wicket winners at Killyclooney.

Three wickets apiece from Ehtesham Ahmed and Chris Havern reduced the home side to 25-7, but Derek Lynch (23) saved their blushes somewhat against his former club as they made 71.

Debutant Digamber Mishra from Railway Union had an eventful day, taken off the bowling as he struggled with the wet ball, bowling two inadvertent beamers.

The modest target was never going to be enough as Strabane skipper Aaron Gillespie made a quick 30 in reply while Kevin Gallagher’s unbeaten 20 eased them to victory.

Jason Milligan (44), Aidan Logue 34 and TJ Nicholl 25 were in the runs as Fox Lodge posted 134-3 at Ballymagorry against last week's surprise package Bonds Glen.

The Bee Gees never quite got going with the bat as Jamie McIntyre's (4-9) new-ball blitz left their reply in tatters.

Two wickets apiece for spinners Jonny Bap Robinson (2-5) and Aaron Heywood (2-17) sealing the maximum points 64-run win.

Coleraine lost again as they went down by 15 runs at home to Eglinton.

The villagers made 103-8 with Tommy Orr top scoring with 35, supported by Jamie Millar (25).

Medum pacer Alan Whitcroft exploited the helpful conditions to claim 4-25 for the Bannsiders.

Coleraine adopted a safety-first approach to the reply, reaching 43 without loss at the ten overs mark. However they weren't able to press the accelerator and finished on 88 for 4, Scott Campbell (29) and David Cooke (26*).

Spinners Simon Dunn (2-11) and Robbie Millar (2-17) claimed the wickets.

There's one game on Sunday, with Brigade aiming to make it three wins from three as they take on Strabane at Beechgrove (2pm).
