Muckamore skipper Neil Gill and Luke Allen were the match winners for the Moylena side as they chased 189 to beat North Down.

Earlier, Stephen Saul's half century was the best of the Comber side's 188 for 9, with two wickets apiece for Neil Gill and Curtis Moorhead in a disciplined bowling effort that ultimately laid the foundations for the win.

CSNI 238/6 (47 overs: Marc Ellison 70, Adam Leckey 58*, James Kennedy 48*; Alex Haggan 3-42, Prince Sharma 2-52
Marko Bates took five catches for CSNI (CricketEurope)
CSNI were another side who chased to win - all five sides did so in the Premiership.

Colin Archibald picke dup four wickets, with three for teenager Adam Leckey, and two for Ireland-contracted Matthew Foster. A feature of the game was five catches for young wicket-keeper Marko Bates. Marc Ellison (70) held together the CSNI chase in the early stages, but Alex Haggan (3-42) and Prince Sharma (2-52) looked to be winning the game for the Middle Road side as the Stormont side slipped to 132 for 6 in the 33rd over. But, yet again it was a lower order stand that won the day, with Adam Leckey and the experienced James Kennedy adding a match winning 101 for the 7th wicket, Leckey collecting a half century before a Kennedy boundary sealed a four wicket win with three overs remaining.
Lisburn beat Woodvale by 3 wickets
Wallace Park, 8 June.
Woodvale 284/4 (50 overs: Ludwig Kaestner 134*, Ronan Restieaux 57, Ruhan Pretorius 30, James Rose 29*; Faiz Fazal 2-46)
Lisburn 285/7 (49.4 overs: Nigel Jones 88, James Hunter 79*, Josh Manley 29, David Miller 22*; Ronan Restieaux 4-70, Carl Robinson 2-36)
Lisburn batting heroes Nigel Jones and James Hunter (CricketEurope)
Woodvale lost for the first time in the Premiership, missing out on the chance to extend their lead at the top away at Lisburn, who moved into second place thanks to a superb chase of a tough 285-run target. Ludwig Kaestner's brilliant 134 not out from 130 balls (12 fours, 4 sixes) led the Ballygomartin side to 284 for 4, sharing stands of 98 in 18 overs with Ronan Restieaux (57), and a further 95 in the last ten with James Rose who scored a run-a-ball 29. The home side looked in a little trouble at 204 for 6 in the 41st over, despite a fine 88 from Nigel Jones (8 fours, 1 six). However, James Hunter was the hero of the hour, a she thumped 6 sixes and 4 fours in a superb undefeated 79 from just 58 balls, adding 76 in 46 balls for the 7th wicket with Josh Manley (29) to get the Wallace Park side almost to the finishing line - Ryan Macbeth applying the coup de grace with two balls left. A game you feel that Woodvale will reflect back on and Lisburn will use as a launching pad even at this early stage of the season.

Belmont, 8 June.
CIYMS 211/9 (50 overs: Max Burton 51, Allen Coulter 43, Chris Dougherty 41, Bamanye Xenxe 34*, Adam Heasley 23; Jared Wilson 2-34, Matty McCord 2-41, Ben Kane 2-49)

Stormont, 26 May.
CSNI 146 (40.5 overs: Stuart Thompson 35, Harry Dyer 23; Ben Rose 4-24, Cian Robertson 3-32)
Instonians 147/7 (42.5 overs: Andrew White 63*, Cade Carmichael 26; James West 3-21, Colin Archibald 2-24, Matthew Foster 2-38) (Delayed start - Match reduced to 45 overs)
Andrew White and Ben Rose were the Instonians heroes (CricketEurope)
CSNI made little headway after being asked to bat first struggling to 87/4 at the half way stage with the top four all back in the pavilion. Cian Robertson with three wickets and Ben Rose four ensuring that there would be no late heroics from the tail although there was a last wicket partnership of 27 between youngsters Luka and Marko Bates broken by Ben Walsh in his first and only over. Two early wickets for Matthew Foster when Instonians started their reply including skipper Nikolai Smith first ball, Andrew White and Cade Carmichael rebuilding with a partnership of 60. Carmichael gone and it is now all on Andrew White it seems. White may be scoring the runs but Adam Ly is playing a vital roll here with 14 off 49 balls in what looks like a match winning half century partnership. Twist in the tail? James West has two in the over ending Adam Ly's resistance and then having Sully Gould lbw second ball. A third wicket for West having Ben Rose caught first ball of his next but in the end Andrew White got his side across the line in the company of Cian Robertson. Adam Ly as much the hero as White in Inst's win as no doubt Whitey would acknowledge.
Carrickfergus beat Muckamore by 35 runs
Middle Road, 26 May.
Carrickfergus 188/7 (40 overs: Alex Haggan 39, Ashwin Shetty 31, Michael Gilmour 31, Sam Gordon 22; Pavan Karthik 2-22, Jason vd Merwe 2-22)

Ashwin Shetty starred with bat and ball for Carrickfergus (CricketEurope)
Delayed start - Match reduced to 40 overs. After being put in to bat by Muckamore it took a 56 run partnership for the sixth wicket between Alex Haggan and Ashwin Shetty to lift winless Carrick to a respectable188 in their reduced 40 overs. Three wickets for Ashwin Shetty has stalled the Muckamore chase including that of inform Jason vd Merwe for only 2. A lot depending on Ben Calitz with100 required off the second twenty overs and the rquired rate climbing. Calitz bowled by young Alex Armstrong in his first over and it's surely only a matter of time before the Cowboys register their first win of the campaign. But Neil Gill isn't making it easy for them 5x4 and 1x6 in his 40 not out as he goes on the attack. But it couldn't last and when he became Haasbroek's third victim all that was left was for Cowboy's skipper CJ van der Walt to take the final two to claim his sides first league points.
Cliftonville Academy beat Carrickfergus by 51 runs
Castle Grounds, 25 May.
Cliftonville Academy 211 (48.5 overs: Abhishek Raut 80, Kian Hilton 51; Jake Egan 4-48, Ashwin Shetty 2-28, Ruan Haasbroek 2-29)
Carrickfergus 160 (47.1 overs: Ruan Haasbroek 45, Jake Egan 35, CJ van der Walt 25; Ben Kane 4-44, Andrew Forbes 2-26)
A second wicket partnership of exctly 50 between Kian Hilton and Johnny Terrett set Cliftonville Academy on their way before Abhishek Raut took advantage of a lacklustre Carrick attack rattling up 80 off 61 balls, 9x4 3x6. He dominated the later stages of the innings adding 42 for the 9th wicket with Andrew Forbes whose contribution to the partnership was 2 singles. Wiith Alex Haggan still recovering from a knee injury and unable to bowl it was Carrick's seventh bowler Jake Egan who returned the best figures of the day claiming 4-48. Carrick only managed three scores in double figures from Jake Egan, Ruan Haasbroek and skipper CJ van der Walt as spinner Ben Kane claimed 4 wickets as Carrick never challenged the home total.
CSNI beat Waringstown by 121 runs
Stormont, 25 May.
CSNI 271/9 (50 overs: Ryan Hunter 57, Marc Ellison 47, Colin Archibald 39, Stuart Thompson 22, Paddy Beverland 20; Bilawal Bhatti 3-36, Tom Mayes 3-55)
Waringstown 150 (33.4 overs: Adam Dennison 50, Morgan Topping 32; Jordan Neill 3-38, Matthew Foster 2-17, Adam Leckey 2-28)
A bad day at the office for the visitors who saw CSNI plunder runs all down the order at Stormont. Ireland U19 keeper Ryan Hunter and former NZ U19 captain Marc Ellison added 80 together or the second wicket after the loss of Jordan Neill. Three wickets each for Bilawal Bhatti and Tom Mayes for Waringstown but CSNI content with their total at the change of innings. Matthew Forster straight into the action for CSNI removing both Sam Topping for just a single and James McCollum without scoring. Adam Leckey had Adam Dennison caught behind to make it 68/3, Dennison with 50 of those. With 6 wickets down before the hundred was reached it was always going to be a home win, Jordan Neill making up for a lack of runs today by claiming the best bowling figures, 3-38 in his allocation of 10.
Woodvale beat CIYMS by 3 runs
Ballygomartin Road, 25 May.
Woodvale 191 (46.1 overs: Ruhan Pretorius 100, James Rose 22; Carson McCullough 3-67, Allen Coulter 2-7)

Ruhan Pretorius celebrates his century (CricketEurope)
It was slow going early on for Woodvale having been asked to bat by CIYMS, as they were reduced to 30/4 with Warke, Adey, Kaestner and Restieaux all back in the paviliion. But James Rose joined the inform Ruhan Pretorius at the crease and together they added 55 before Rose was bowled by Carson McCullough. A further partnership of 39 with Carl Robinson was steering Woodvale towards respectability if not a winning position before Pretorious monopolised a stand with Jamie Gibson scoring 40 to Gibson's 1 as he moved to his century. The visitors batted steadily in the chase and had reached 139/4 before four wickets fell for just 11 runs, 42 required with only 2 wickets left. Four boundaries in a better than a run-a-ball 26 from Jack Beattie looked like getting CI home but one shot away from the win, Allen Coulter swept at Ludwig Kaestner, missed, and Woodvale were victorious.

Shaw's Bridge, 25 May.
Instonians 236/6 (50 overs: Ollie Metcalfe 86, Ben Rose 35, Cade Carmichael 28, Jack Dickson 25, Adam Ly 25; Jason van der Merwe 2-24)

Cian Robertson continues his good form since returning from a shoulder injury claiming four wickets, while teenage off-spinner Ben Walsh picked up three.

All-round performance by Liam Hayman who added 90 runs to his 3-36 (Don Shields)

His opening partner Mohamed Aahil added 132 for the third wicket with Liam Hayman (90 off 102, 6x4, 2x6) before he fell to Ryan Macbeth, Humphreys claiming the other 3 wickets to fall.

Varun Chopra entered the fray and he too wasted no time in his unbeaten 46 off 26, clearing the ropes five times.

Comber, 12 May.
CIYMS 137/9 (20 overs: Chris Dougherty 45, Allen Coulter 21; Peter Davison 3-39, Liam Hayman 2-22)
North Down 129/7 (20 overs: Ani Chore 83*, Liam Hayman 21; Bamanye Xenxe 2-26)
Chris Dougherty again leading the way for CIYMS hoping to bounce back after yesterday's 1 run defeat to Waringstown but it took a few blows down the order from Allen Coulter to take them to what they hope is a defendable total. Bamanye Xenxe into the action straight away with the wicket of Ally Shields for just 6 and that of Stevie Saul without scoring. Ani Chore holding firm on 33* at the half way stage but 84 still needed in the second half for a home win. All on Chore now with 39 required off 4 overs. Tyron Koen bowls the 17th over for just 3 with Nelson struggling to get Chore back on strike and a single off the final ball means that Chore is off strike for the 18th. Nelson runs past the first ball from Mulder and is stumped for 3 off 9. Just 2 runs off the 18th but at least Chore is on strike - he's faced only 2 of the last 12 deliveries. 34 off 12 the target! And now 22 of the final over to be bowled by Xenxe - 6 is a good start! Dot, 6, Dot - that makes it 10 off 2. DOT! 1. And CIYMS are winners by 8 runs. Valiant effort from Chore whose 83* came off 58 balls (6x4, 3x6) but he was starved of the strike in the final few overs and that in the end proved decisive.

Closest game of the day was at Belmont where CIYMS lost a last over thriller to Waringstown by one run. CIYMS went into the last over needing 8 runs with three wickets in hand and after losing Jacob Mulder to a run out Allen Coulter got it down to 3 required off 3. Koekemoer bowled a wide to Mark Best then with his next two deliveries bowled Best and last man Angus Farrell. It had looked like all the world a home win as Chris Dougherty made 107 from 115 balls (10 fours, 4 sixes), sharing a 4th wicket stand of 128 in 23 overs with Tyron Koen (63). However from 201 for 3 in the 40th, CIYMS fell just one run short. Earlier, Greg Thompson's hard hit 64 from 47 balls (5 fours, 4 sixes), and a James McCollum half century (53) laid the platform for their 249 for 8 - Tian Koekomoer (34) and Adam Dennison (23) also in the runs.
CSNI lost to Lisburn by 158 runs
Stormont, 11 May.
Lisburn 238/8 (50 overs: Faiz Fazal 138*, Nigel Jones 59; Jordan Neill 4-44, Adam Leckey 2-39)
CSNI 80 (21.4 overs: Harry Dyer 29*; Ryan Macbeth 4-24, Neil Whitworth 2-6, Josh Manley 2-21)
Only two double figures scores in the Lisburn innings but when one of them is 138* it hardly matters! Faiz Fazal carrying his bat throughout 11x4, 4x6 in his marathon effort. He shared a second wicket stand of 119 with Nigel Jones, who hit 7 fours in his 59. There were four wickets for Jordan Neill (4-44) as Lisburn ended on 238 for 8.
