Weather hits NW quarter-finals
Heavy rain put paid to three of the four North West Senior Cup quarter-finals on Sunday leaving the region's Fixture Secretary with a backlog to contemplate over the next couple of weeks.
The one tie that was successfully played to a conclusion saw Glendermott reach the last four with a convincing win over Championship side Killyclooney.
Gordon Cooke with 4-23 and Keshan Wijerathne (4-36) saw the visitors reduced to just 75 all out as they batted first. Alan Colhoun's 25 was the best of that, and with rain closing in, the home side wasted little time in knocking off the required runs.
Bob Robinson with an unbeaten 26 and David Cooke (25 not out) got the Rectory boys over the winning line with 9 wickets and plenty of overs to spare.
Elsewhere there was precious little action starting at Ballyspallen where the Roe Valley side's game against Strabane was washed out for the second time in 24 hours. They got as far as the 14th over in that one with the hosts 36-1 when the rain arrived.
There was even less game-time possible in the much-anticipated Donemana v Brigade tie at the Holm. The Beechgrove side had reached 29-1 after 11 overs when heavy rain put paid to any chance of further play.
There was 36 overs possible at the Bleachgreen where Ardmore had struggled to 114-7 in the face of some quality bowling from Jack Martin and Mike Erlank.
Ciaran Curley with 33 and Decker Curry (30) had fared best of the batting, however that too was to count for nothing as the teams must do it again over the next fortnight.
