Munster Reds moved into second place in the table leaving the North West Warriors joint bottom in a tense contest at Oak Hill.

Batting first, the Warriors were struggling at 123 for 7 despite runs for skipper Andy McBrine (33) and Stephen Doheny (25).

An 8th wicket stand of 66 in 9 overs between Jared Wilson, who hit 4 fours and 2 sixes in a breezy 48, and Marcello Piedt got the innings back on track.

Brigade overseas professional Piedt cleared the ropes four times as well as thumping 3 fours in a top score of 59 from just 43 balls, shepherding the tail to a total of 231.

Josh Manley picked up three wickets, while there were two apiece for Mike Frost, Nicolaj Damsgaard, and Liam McCarthy.

Munster's chase followed a similar pattern after a bright start by Ollie Metcalfe, who hit eight fours and a six in a rapid 53.

The visitors fought back with wickets for Trent McKeegan, Andy McBrine and Marcello Piedt, and at 143 for 6 the match was very much in the balance. 

Cork County's South African overseas player Mark Adrianatos was the Reds' hero though as his unbeaten 60 (6 fours, 1 six) got them over the line, securing the two-wicket win with four balls remaining.
