NCU Premier League round-up
There were wins for Waringstown, CIYMS, North Down and CSNI as Carrickfergus lost their unbeaten record at Belmont, Chris Dougherty scoring a magnificent 126*
At The Lawn, Waringstown took full advantage of a depleted Woodvale attack to post 322/7.
André Malan top scoring there with 99 - he was deprived of his century by an inspired piece of fielding by Adey at short mid-wicket who scored a direct hit at the bowlers end as Malan attempted the short single that would have brought up his hundred.
Greg Thompson hit a typically quick-fire 76 adding 132 with Malan for the fourth wicket while for the visitors Aditya Adey took 3-51.
In reply, James Hall, back at The Lawn, but in Woodvale colours, added 63 with Harry Warke before Kyle McCallan claimed them both, bowling Warke for 29 and then having Hall lbw for 33.
He added a third when Adey was lbw and the early impetus the Woodvale reply ground to a halt.
A last wicket partnership of 61 between Pavan Karthik and Sonny Stephenson only delayed the inevitable as McCallan finished with figures of 6-22 as the home side wrapped up the 111 run win.
At Belmont, a second wicket partnership of 115 between Jacques Snyman and Iain Parkhill set League leaders Carrickfergus on their way to a total of 235, bowled out in the 50th over.
Snyman with 71 and Parkhill 56 while seamer Chris Robinson took 3-23 and young off-spinner Carson McCullough 3-39 including the prize wicket of Snyman.
But the home side were not to be denied, inflicting a first league defeat on their visitors.
Chris Dougherty with a magnificent 126 not out, an innings that contained 14 fours and 2 sixes.
He shared a second wicket partnership of 175 with James Cameron-Dow who scored 71 as CI eased to an 8 wicket win with 9 balls to spare.
Lisburn could only manage 124 at home to CSNI - bowled out inside 33 overs.
Chris Burns with 34 and Faiz Fazal 24 as Stuart Thompson claimed 5-26 in his 10 overs.
CSNI wasted no time chasing that down Luke Georgeson with 79* and Paddy Beverland 42* the 9 wicket win coming in 31 overs.
In Comber Instonians managed a similar 124 with James Hunter contributing more than half of that total.
His 65 not out was one of only three double figure efforts in the visitors effort.
Seamer Tom Mayes claiming 4-17 and leg-spinner Carl Robinson 2-32.
Skipper Ally Shields and Ryan Haire both scored 27 as North Down won by 6 wickets in the 33rd. over.
So it’s now a five-way tie at the top of the table as Carrick are joined by today’s winners - North Down, CIYMS, CSNI and Waringstown while winless Instonians stay rooted to the bottom with no wins in their 3 outing to date.
