The Championship will be decided this weekend, with the crunch game taking place at The Rectory on Saturday when two of the three title contenders, Glendermott and Killyclooney, meet.
It is the visitors’ last game and only a win will see them hit the top, but they would then have a nervous wait while Glendermott, away to Burndennett, and Ballyspallen, at home to basement side Bonds Glen, play their final games on Sunday.
Glendermott are in pole position and two wins will give them the title.
The runners-up have another shot at top flight cricket via a promotion/relegation play-off against the seventh placed team in the Premiership on Saturday week.
Ballyspallen, who won the Sammy Jeffrey final on Sunday, can nip into first place with back to back victories, although they may need maximum points to pip the Londonderry side. Glendermott currently lead them by 20 points.
The Qualifying 4 Cup final will also be decided this weekend at Drummond between Fox Lodge III, last year’s beaten finalists, and Bready IV, the two-innings game starting on Friday at noon.
Donemana II won the Ulster Plate for the third time with a comprehensive 208 runs victory over Muckamore II on their Holm ground on Sunday.
Current Ireland international and North West Warriors captain Andy McBrine was a member of the last time to win it in 2010 and this year his dad, Junior took 4-13 and brother William 3-23 as the NCU were bowled out for 108 in 22.5 overs.
But the damage had been done in the first 40 overs as Donemana piled up 316-8 with Kyle Dougherty top scoring with 72 (seven fours and three sixes), Joe Robinson (58 with two fours and six sixes) and Ritchie McBrine (51 five fours and four sixes) also scoring half-centuries.
