Donemana shocked holders CIYMS to reach the final of the All-Ireland T20 competition, securing the narrowest of wins in a rain affected contest at Bready.
Batting first, the NCU outfit were in trouble at 7-2 early on before a 92-run partnership between Jason van der Merwe and Chris Dougherty brought them right back into the match.
Van der Merwe thumped 5 sixes and 3 fours in his 58 with former Bready batsman Dougherty hitting 4 fours and 3 sixes on his way to 48.
The spinners dominated for Donemana- Jordan McGonigle picking up 4-33 while William McBrine took plenty of confidence from his efforts in last week's senior cup final to post a superb 2-8 from 4 overs.
Set a target of 142 to win the rain arrived 10 overs into the Tyrone team's reply with them 61-1.
Andy McBrine was unbeaten on 29 and William McClintock 16* and with the par score 60 at that stage, an abandonment left Donemana winners by the barest of margins.
They will now play the winners of today's other semi final between YMCA and Cork County next Saturday (19th) at Belmont, with the winners of that to play CI on Sunday for the right to go to La Manga at the start of next season.
