Eglinton took full advantage of a weakened Bready side to record their seventh straight league win to go clear in second place behind champions elect Brigade.

Missing David Rankin and Davy Scanlon, Bready were dismissed by the villagers for just 124, with three wickets for Simon Dunn (3-21) and two apiece for Lee Ritchie, Jamie Millar and Stephen Dunn.

Ross Dougherty top scored with 28, while Reece Kelly hit 20 in a disappointing effort by the defending champions,

Tommy Orr hit 10 fours in a fine 57 as Eglinton won at a canter by six wickets, with Jamie Millar making 25 too.

Ross Dougherty claimed two wickets in a game which had a distinct end of season feel to it.

The win keeps Eglinton's mathematical chances of overhauling Brigade alive - 69 points behind the Beechgrove side with three games left.

Brigade travel to Donemana on Saturday hoping to secure the points needed to clinch the Premiership.
