Half centuries from DD Barr and Kyle Magee helped Brigade to a resounding 97-run win against Killyclooney at Beechgrove.

Batting first, David Murdock set the tone for the innings with a typically hard-hit 28 from 13 balls, with three fours and two sixes - one of which landed in the members area on the pavilion roof.

Ifty Hussain fell cheaply to a bat-pad catch off Jason Wallace (2-25), but from then on the Killyclooney attack was put to the sword in a boundary blitz.

Barr hit 7 fours and 3 sixes in an excellent 76 off 51 balls, sharing a third wicket stand of 105 in 9.1 overs with Magee whose unbeaten 67 came from 31 balls, and included 4 fours and 5 sixes.

Skipper Andy Britton clubbed three sixes in his 26 off 15 balls as they posted 217 for 4.

Brothers Giles (30) and Darren Moan (24) ensured respectability in an opening stand of 42, while Timmy Doughety (19*) struck some lusty late blows as they ended on 120 for 7.

Ross Allen (3-25) and Nick Donnell (2-15) were the pick of the Brigade attack.

The win makes it three wins from three and they will ensure their place in the semi-finals later in the year if they beat Strabane next Saturday.
