It was Super Sunday at The Holm as Donemana beat Bready in a high scoring thriller to open up the title race, as Strabane and Coleraine both won to close the gap at the top of the table.

Bready looked down and out as they were 215 for 8 chasing  home side total of 336, but a late rally gave them hope of pulling off a dramatic victory that would have left them with one hand on the title.

Andrew Lucas hit 42 from 23 balls, striking 3 fours and 4 sixes to start the resurgence, and then Davy Scanlon took up the mantle.

The Bready skipper clubbed 6 sixes and 3 fours in 60 from just 32 balls, but perished in the final over with 12 needed.

The consolation for Bready is that the five bonus points achieved means that they can still afford one further skip up and still claim the Premiership crown.

David Rankin had earlier hit 16 fours and a six in a top score of 94, sharing stands of 58 with Jamie Magee and 92 with Andrew Austin (34).

It was a contest filled with boundaries - Bready hitting 36 fours and 14 sixes, while Donemana went a little more aerial hitting 20 sixes and 23 fours in a match that showcased NW cricket at its belligerent best.

Dwayne McGerrigle hit 7 sixes in a top score of 85, while Aggie Riddles 73 contained 6 sixes as they racked up 336 for 8 - in the end just about enough!

Strabane's remarkable season continued as they put Fox Lodge to the sword at the Park.

Aaron Gillespie (124) and Rachit Gaur (110) shared a second wicket stand of 247 as they too posted 336 - Peter Gillespie chipping in with a quick 40.

Cebo Tshiki hit 72 in the reply but they were 139 runs adrift - two wickets apiece for Rhys Logue, Rachit Gaur, Kushpal Singh and Ryan Gallagher.

The win keeps Strabane in second place, just ahead of Coleraine who beat Ardmore by six wickets.

Graham Hume (4-13) took out the Ardmore top order, and it took 75 from Steve Lazars to get Ardmore up to 159.

The former Coleraine player hit 9 fours and 2 sixes in his 83-ball knock, adding 46 for the last wicket with Stevie Dunn (19*).

Scott Campbell (51) and Marcus Poskitt (29) shared an opening stand of 76 to get the Bannsiders up and running, and Tim Chopra's 43 ensured a routine win.

Ardmore's miserable run shows no sign of ending and they now must win at least two of their last four games to avoid the drop.
