Saintfield bounced back from the disappointment of their T20 Trophy final loss to beat Donacloney Mill at home by four wickets.

Richard Shilliday (3-52), Stiaam Swanepoel (2-32), and Stuart Campbell (2-33) shared the wickets for Dundrum. Rain altered the target to 118 in 35 overs, and Stiaam Swanepoel’s 37 proved vital in the successful chase, despite the best efforts of Mark Yeates (2-12).

Batting first, the Queensway side were bowled out for 141, with Jordan Wade’s 45 the highlight. Ewan Wilson had the excellent figures of 5 for 35, while neil Gill took two wickets. The chase was a watchful affair, and a solid platform of 79 for 1 was given by Kyllin Vardhan (45) and Sunny Stephenson (20), but Derriaghy’s bowlers kept a tight grip, and Muckamore finished nine runs adrift.

Four wickets in the chase for Michael Hoey (4-27, and two for Arnie Wright (2-34) saw Dundrum dismissed for 128.

Saintfield edged out Ballymena by three wickets in an attritional battle at Eaton Park. The home side looked in trouble as they slumped to 76 for 8 batting first. However a ninth wicket stand of 59 between Jack Gibson (40) and Sam Glass (24) got them up to 147. A solid batting effort ensured the win for the Saints, although Ballymena will surely rue the concession of 33 extras, which was a criminal offence in a tight game.
Derriaghy beat Donacloney Mill by 6 wickets.
Queensway, 25 June.
Donacloney Mill 196 (42.3 overs; M Campbell 67, C Russell 64; C Moorhead 4-40, S Gordon 3-31, C Lewis 2-38)
Derriaghy 197-4 (30.5 overs; M Venter 71*, C Lewis 52, M Halliday 36; M Campbell 3-45)
The Derriaghy bandwagon rolled on after they won by six wickets chasing Donacloney Mills 196. Mark Campbell hit 6 fours and 5 sixes in his 67 from 59 balls, while Colin Russell also made a half century - his 64 including nine fours. Curtis Moorhead claimed four wickets, while there were three for new signing Sam Gordon, and two for all-rounder Craig Lewis. MornĂˆ Venter and Lewis then both scored half centuries in the reply, as they shared a fourth wicket stand of 81 in ten overs. Venter's unbeaten 71 came from 62 balls (4 fours, 6 sixes), while Lewis took 39 balls in his 52 (6 fours, 3 sixes). Momentum seems to be with Derriaghy, and it wouldn't be a surprise if silverware doesn't land at Queensway.
Muckamore lost to Templepatrick by 1 wicket (DLS).
Moylena, 25 June.
Muckamore 158 (49 overs; K Vardhan 65, R Keates 26; D Kane 4-30, C Taylor 3-38)
Templepatrick 161/9 (39.1 overs; S Gautam 33, C Taylor 31; P Karthik 3-24, R Keates 3-45)
Leaders Templepatrick inflicted more pain on what has been a miserable week for Muckamore on and off the field as they won a thrilling contest by one wicket at Moylena. Alex Davis was the Templepatrick hero, his unbeaten 19 getting them over the line with some lusty blows as the pressure was on. Sunny Gautum (33) and Chris Taylor (31) looked to be easing Templepatrick towards their target, before three wickets for Pavan Karthik and Richard Keates gave their side hope. Earlier Muckamore's total of 158 was based on 65 from opener Kyllin Vardhan (8 fours), while Richard Keates made 26. Four wickets for David Kane and three for Chris Taylor always had Muckamore playing catch-up in setting a defendable target. To their credit, they almost did.
Ballymena (0) lost to Armagh (4) by 6 wickets.
Eaton Park, 18 June.
Ballymena 229-8 (50 overs; J Kennedy 120; S McCall 3-20, H Doyle 3-30, M Hoey 2-27)
Armagh 230-4 (41.1 overs; J Rogers 67, S Wilson 65, JJ Strydom 62; O Dick 2-29)
James Kennedy's second century of the season wasn't enough for Ballymena as Armagh won by three wickets at The Mall. Batting first, Ballymena's total of 229 for 8 was primarily due to the efforts of Kennedy who made a superb 120 from 103 balls, which included 12 fours and 6 sixes. Stuart McCall (3-20) and Harry Doyle (3-30) each picked up three wickets, while Michael Hoyle claimed two victims. An opening stand of 130 between Jamie Rogers and Sam Wilson got Armagh off to the perfect start. Rogers hit ten boundaries in his 67, while Wilson stroked nine fours in his 65, JJ Strydom then hurried The Mall side towards victory as he dominated a second wicket stand of 86, hitting11 fours and a six in a whirlwind 62 from just 48 balls. Owen Dick took two wickets as Armagh stuttered as the finishing line approached, but they still won comfortably by six wickets in the 42nd over.

Lurgan 163 (33.3 overs; S Johnston 89; R Keates 3-24, N Gill 2-24, A Oduvelil 2-29)
Kyllin Vardhan was the day's second centurion as he carried his bat for Muckamore in their 125-run win at Pollock Park against Lurgan. South African Vardhan, who played interprovincial cricket for the Warrriors, showed his quality as he hit 18 fours and 3 sixes in a run-a-ball 144 not out, taking the Moylena side to 288 for 9. He shared a seventh wicket stand of 86 in nine overs with Richard Keates, whose 47 from just 40 balls included 8 fours. Callum Gibson claimed a five wicket haul, while there were two for Syed Ali. Lurgan opener Stephen Johnston played beautifully in the chase, hitting 15 boundaries on his way to 89 from just 84 balls, but there was little support. Wicketkeeper Scott Wilson's 23 was next best as Lurgan were bowled out for 163 - three wickets for Keates, plus two apiece for Neil Gill and Arnold Oduvelil in the emphatic win.
Donacloney Mill (4) beat Dundrum (0) by 79 runs.
Donacloney, 18 June.

The third centurion of Section One was Kadeem Alleyne, whose hard-hit 123 was the catalyst for Saintfield's imposing total of 317 at home to Bangor. Gareth Harrison was also in the runs with 77, while Ross Murray chipped in with 32. Jamie Scates-Veale claimed six wickets, while Josh Bates picked up a couple for Bangor. The Bangor chase never got going as they were bundled out for 108 on a day to forget. Patrick Telford, Mark Yeates and Adam Sofley each picked up three wickets, while overseas player Kuda Samunderu's modest 22 was the best the visitors could manage with the bat as Saintfield recorded their first league win of the season.

Centuries from Liam Peters and James Kennedy powered Ballymena to an emphatic 170-runs win over Donaghcloney Mill at Eaton Park. Peters dominated an opening stand of 75 with Stephen Colgan (10),before being joined by Kennedy, as they forged a match winning partnership. The pair added 140 in 18 overs as Ballymena racked up 317 for 5. Peter hit 13 fours and 6 sixes as he top-scored with 127 from 99 balls, while Kennedy's 101 from 106 deliveries also saw him clear the ropes 6 times, as well as hitting 9 fours. DM opted for batting practice rather than seriously chase the daunting total, with Aaron Kennedy (43) and Josh Cunningham (30) both batting well. Jack Gibson, Paul Black and Owen Dick each claimed two wickets in the resounding win.

Lurgan 130-7 (27 overs; S Johnston 39, P Maxwell 26; J Busby 4-15)
Templepatrick put Lurgan to the sword as they ran out easy 83-run winners at The Cloughan. Lurgan won the toss and must have soon regretted the decision as Richard Greer (52) and Matthew Palmer (43) shared an opening stand of 98. Sunam Gautam then hit 11 fours and 2 sixes as he top-scored with 106 from just 73 balls. He shared a stand of 166 in 16 overs with Ross Bryans, who clubbed 5 fours and 4 sixes in his 80 from 54 balls -a final total of 315 for 4. John Busby took 4 for 15 as Lurgan never got close to their revised target of 214 in 27 overs. Stephen Johnston's 39 the best of their 130 for 7.
Muckamore beat Saintfield by 67 runs (DLS).
Moylena, 11 June.
Muckamore 143 (38 overs; N Gill 60, E Wilson 31; A Sofley 5-43, M Yeates 2-34)
Saintfield 71 (17.2 overs; E Wilson 5-21, N Gill 2-22, P Karthik 2-27) (DLS target: 139 in 45 overs)
Bowlers were on top in the clash between Muckamore and Saintfield at Moylena, with a five wicket haul on each side. Adam Sofley took 5 for 43 as Saints dismissed Muckamore for 143, with the home side relying on Neil Gill top scoring with 60 (10 fours, 1 six), and an even time 31 from Ewan Wilson (31). Wilson followed up his batting efforts to claim 5 for 21 as the visitors stuttered to 71 all out - two wickets too for Gill and Pavan Karthik. An excellent win for Muckamore who have been inconsistent this season, perhaps burdened by one of the promotion favourites tags.
Bangor beat Armagh by 9 wickets (DLS).
Upritchard Park, 11 June.
Armagh 134 (J Rodgers 36;D Kennedy 3-28, K Samunderu 2-26)

Kuda Samunderu inspired Bangor to a nine wickets (DLS) win over Armagh at Upritchard Park in one of the surprises of the day. He claimed two wickets and David Kennedy (3-28) as Armagh were dismissed for 143 batting first - Jamie Rodgers making 36, and Ben Mackey 24 in tough conditions. Facing a revised target of 113 in 37 overs, Bangor romped home thanks to almost single-handed effort from the overseas professional. Samunderu hit an unbeaten 93 out of the 113 required to secure the welcome win for a Bangor side who have struggled in Section One all year. Could this be the catalyst for a resurgence as the season approaches the mid-way point?
