Craig Young claimed the individual honours as the domestic cricket season got under way in glorious sunshine on Saturday; the Bready pace bowler returning figures of 6-10 as the Magheramason men routed Donemana for the second successive year.
The North West Warriors player has been hampered by injury for the past 12 months but a few more performances like this will surely keep him uppermost in Ireland Head Coach Graham Fordís plans ahead of next monthís historic Test match against Pakistan.
Youngís haul was all the more impressive considering all six of his victims were clean bowled as the champions were skittled for just 70, albeit that was an improvement on their 38 all out In 2017.
Malith Cooray (25) was best with the bat on his debut for the Holm side with William McClintock (11) the only other player to make it to double figures.
Conor Olphert (2-15) also bowled well for the hosts while Davy Scanlon and Ryan Barr picked up a wicket each. Breadyís reply was emphatic- Andrew Austin and Kyle Hamilton putting on 42 for the first wicket before the latter was bowled by Cooray for 17 just before tea.
Austin (31 not out) and Irosh Samarasooriya (20 not out) saw the job through however as Scanlonís side hit the ground running with a full 25-point win.
