The only senior game to beat the weather was at Sandel Lodge where Newbuildings just about weathered another storm to clinch a 15-run (DLS) win over Coleraine.

Batting first Newbuildings piled up an imposing 269 for 7 in their 40 overs with Ryan Hunter top-scoring with a fluent even time 93 (8 fours, 2 sixes).

Hunter shared a second wicket stand of 103 in 19 overs with Gareth McKeegan - the skipper rejuvenated at the top of the order as he hit 4 fours and cleared the ropes three times in his 58.

Samarth Seth added a further 73 in 9 overs with Hunter, as he hit 7 fours and 2 sixes in his 57 from just 38 balls as the runs came fast at the end.

The home side chase looked a forlorn one as Ross Hunter claimed 3 for 18, with the Bannsiders reeling at 85 for 5 at the 20 overs mark.

Garnett Tear - a South African brought in for the game as a sub pro - went on the attack and in the course of the next 45 minutes brought an entire new complexion to the contest. He found a willing ally in Lee Ritchie with the pair adding 65 for the 6th wicket as Tear thumped 7 sixes and 7 fours in a quite destructive 116 not out from just 74 balls.

It was looking like it could go all the way, but with 83 needed from 61 balls the rains arrived and Tear's efforts were in vain - Newbuildings winning by 15. It wasn't all bad news for the Bannsiders though as with the washouts elsewhere the 4 bonus points ensured they went top of the table for a few weeks at least.

Donemana were well on top in their home clash with Bready when play was halted.

A century for Sri Lankan professional Rumesh Buddhika had them on course for a total well in excess of 300 at 185 for 2 in the 27th over.

Buddhika hit 14 fours and 8 sixes in his 119, sharing a second wicket stand of 153 in 21 overs with Raymond Curry (38*).

Eglinton were well on top of their clash with Killyclooney when the game was called off.

Home skipper Jamie Millar had claimed four wickets for 33 as the visitors slumped to 58 for 5 with only his opposite number Timmy Dougherty holding firm on 21 not out.

Brigade's batsmen had gotten themselves in a great position before the deluge and will be bitterly disappointed that the game didn't go the distance.

Ifty Hussain (45) raced out of the blocks hitting 6 fours and a six in his 31-ball stay, sharing a stand of 78 with DD Barr in the powerplay.

Barr had reached a fluent 62 from 59 balls (8 fours, 1 six), adding an unbroken 55 in 9 overs with Adam McDaid (25*). The Bleachgreen side had flown in a sub pro from England for the game - former Pakistan Test played Abid Ali, but he didn't get an opportunity to either bat or bowl.

Ben Mills was once again left cursing the rain Gods as for the second week running he was on course for a century when the heavens opened. Mills was unbeaten on 69 from 55 balls (8 fours, 3 sixes), having dominated an opening stand of 93 with Leland McElwee (25).

The game at Ballykelly was one over away from a result with Burndennett on 46 for 2 chasing 185 at The Nedd. The home side had produced a solid batting effort in their innings with Stevie Moore (33), skipper Gareth Martin (26), Jamie Mills (25), and Johnny Young (20) all passing 20.

Mark Pollock claimed four scalps, while there were two apiece for Derek Curry and Mark Doherty. Richard Stewart had struck twice in the Burndennett reply including the wicket of Mark Pollock (20) before the weather had the final say.

The Tyrone derby was finely poised with Fox Lodge on 114 for 3 in the 25th over when the rains intervened, Gayan Maneeshan had just reached his half century from 67 balls (5 fours, 1 six), while there were double figure contributions from Jason Milligan (19) and Charlie Simpson (18). The Strabane wicket takers were Usman Azhar, John Mooney and Ryan Gallagher.

Emma Doherty and Nicola Mullen bowled Strabane to a 9-run win over Coleraine at the Park in the Women's Senior Cup.

Defending 100, Coleraine looked favourites to progress before the pair inspired a comeback with Doherty taking 5 for 18 and Mullen 3 for 22.

Earlier Kia McCartney and Hannah Skinner had each taken three wickets in a fine bowling display, with Aimee-Lee Finlay's 22 the highest score of the day.
