Bready and Eglinton ensured semi-finals berths in the NW T20 Cup, joining Brigade and Donemana who had already secured their slots.

Bready beat Burndennett by 60 runs to finish above Newbuildings. Steve Lazars made 33 and took three wickets in the win, well supported by Ian Young (27) and Ross Campbell (20) in their total of 131-9 - four wickets for Corey Roulston.

Burndennett never threatened the chase, finishing on 71 for 8, with Cameron Knight (2-10) also in the wickets as well as Lazars.

Newbuildings finished second as they pipped Glendermott in a high scoring match at The Rectory.

Nathan McGuire in his farewell game hit 56 from 31 balls (4 fours, 6 sixes) as he and Scott Laird (33) shared an opening stand of 64.

Tylor Moore hit 31 from 12 balls, and Stevie Moore 20 in their total of 176 for 5 - wickets for Jason Dunn (3-17) and Ross Hunter (2-32).

Ross Dougherty (45) and Mark Hanna (27) kept Newbuildings in the chase, but it was Trent McKeegan who was the hero as he bludgeoned four sixes and a four in 32 not out from nine balls - giving a bit of what had been meted out to him yesterday - to clinch the three wicket win with 11 balls left.

The closest group saw Eglinton emerge from the slipstream to pip Coleraine and Fox Lodge.

Craig Averill hit seven fours in an even time 50 as the villagers made 139 for 5 at home to Bonds Glen - Sam Kincaid taking two wickets.

That proved 50 too many for the Bee Gees with Rehan Afridiís 21 the best of 8their modest 89-8 - two wickets apiece for Mark Averill, Robbie Millar and Scott Adair.

Coleraine started the day on top, but ended up in third as they lost by six wickets at Ballymagorry.

David Cooke hit 5 fours and 4 sixes in his 62 not out, but a total of 118-6 looked vulnerable.

And so it came to pass as Brian Allen cleared the ropes five times in his 72 not out, which saw Fox Lodge leapfrog the Bannsiders.

Donemana had already booked their semi-final spot, which was just as well as they imploded in their home match against Ardmore.

Rachit Gaur (4-12) and Conor Brolly (4-13) shared eight wickets as the hosts were skittled for 49.

Gaur , despite a pulled hamstring, then made an unbeaten 21 and Tyron Koen 14 not out as Ardmore reached the target with 8 wickets and 11 overs to spare in a truly comprehensive win.

St Johnston beat Ballyspallen by five wickets at Foyle College to finish third in the group.

Luke Gilfillan hit three sixes and two fours in his 21-ball 32 for 'Spallen, while Sri Lankan professional Damith Perera made an unbeaten 27 and Stephen McCloskey 26 in their total of 150-7. David Anthony (3-41) the most successful and expensive of the bowlers.

In the chase, teenager Scott Macbeth underlined his burgeoning reputation as he top scored with 65 (5 sixes, 5 fours).

Sabin (22) and Jack Macbeth 21 also in the runs as the Saints sealed the win with five balls left.

The semi-final draws for the T20 competition plus the NW Senior Cup will take place on Tuesday.
