There was a little bit of history at Donemana as the five brothers from the Dougherty family played together as they beat Killyclooney, just by seven runs in a day when the bowlers dominated in the North West.

Billy, Kyle, Ricky-Lee, Levi and DJ Dougherty were the quintet on a day to remember.

No few than six bowlers claimed five-wicket hauls, with Killyclooney's Timmy Dougherty one of them as Donemana were bowled out for 191.

Gary McClintock top scored with 61 from 47 balls, hitting 5 fours and 4 sixes, while Dean Mehaffey also scored a half century, his 51 coming off 53 balls (6 fours, 2 sixes).

Darren Moan led the chase hitting five sixes and three fours in a quickfire 50 from 49 balls. With Alan Colhoun (41) and Derek Lynch (34) also chipping in, Killyclooney were 148-3 in 32 overs but collapsed with Kyle Dougherty taking four wickets in a narrow seven run win.

At Strabane Park, home side off spinner Rhys Logue took five wickets but so did Ardmore's South African overseas player Tyron Koen as the Bleachgreen side continued unbeaten run.

Rhys Logue

No batsman ever really settled and late runs for Ardmore proved crucial with Tim Harris (22*) and Mark Chambers (18) 8th wicket stand of 35 vital as they reached 145.

Despite a flurry of extras, Admore kept taking wickets and despite 32 from opener Kevin Gallagher the Red Caps were all out for 91.

Bready top the group as they too remain unbeaten after a 42-run run at Fox Lodge in the Tyrone derby.

Irosh Samarasooriya hit 9 fours and a six in his 55 as Bready made 162 - three wickets apiece for Levi Dougherty and Jonny Robinson.

Steve Lazars left-arm spin claimed five wickets and skipper Davy Scanlon two as the Foxies were dismissed for 120, despite the best efforts of Brian Allen who made 51.

Iftikhar Hussain top scored with 88 from 75 balls, hitting10 fours 3 sixes as Brigade survived  a scare to beat St Johnston.

He shared a second wicket stand of 121 in 24 overs with David Barr (42) as Brigade made 193.

Jack Macbeth's unbeaten 97 from 90 balls looked as if it could be leading the Donegal side to a shock win, with his excellent innings seeing him hit1 0 fours and 4 sixes before running out of partners - four wickets for Andy Britton.

Coleraine skipper Stephen Hutchinson was another five-wicket hero as the Bannsiders beat Ballyspallen by 39 runs in a low scoring game.

Hutchinson also top scored with 25 not out as Coleraine made 118, and then tore through the top order of 'Spallen who could only make 79.

Bonds Glen were top scorers of the day as they made 279 at home to Glendermott.

Raymond Curry continued his good form as he hit 9 fours and 4 sixes in his 67, as he shared a second wicket stand of 87 with Mattie Barr who hit 8 fours and 4 sixes in his 65.

Trevor McDermott was the only Rectoory batsman who made a fist of the reply, hitting 8 fours and 5 sixes in his 86 - four wickets for Kyle Moore and three for Derek Curry ensuring maximum points for the Bee Gees as Glendermott were 171 all out.

Closest game of the day was at Eglinton where the home side edged out Newbuildings.

Craig Averill hit nine boundaries in his 55, while Mark Averill's unbeaten 44 helped the villagers make 193 - five wickets for JT.

It was just enough despite the best efforts of Ross Dougherty who hit fours and a six in his 78.

Simon Dunn took three wickets including the last one with first ball of final over to seal a thrilling three-run win.
