Eaton Park, 8 June.
Ballymena 126 (36.5 overs: Sameer Mohd 3-24, Mohhammad Chaudhary 2-18, Krishna Pandey 2-24)
Belfast 102 (23.4 overs: Jayesh Lacmane 26; Glen Adams 7-26, Michael Glass 3-20)
Glen Adams magnificent seven wickets haul bowled Ballymena to a 24-run win over Belfast in a low-scoring affair at Eaton Park. Adams claimed 7 for 26 with Michael Glass taking 3 for 20 as Belfast could only make 102 chasing what looked like a modest target of 126. Extras with 22 were the highest scorer for Ballymena, with Sameer Mohd taking three wickets.
Cregagh beat Armagh by 49 runs
Cregagh Memorial, 8 June.
Cregagh 299/9 (50 overs: Nikhilesh Ravikrishnan 97, Adam Beattie 39, Craig Boultwood 34, Jonny Moore 32, Jay Hunter 26, Aaron Johnston 24; William Mann 4-27, Quintin Dryer 3-35, Matthew Wright 2-81)
Armagh 250 (47 overs: Quintin Dryer 98, Michael Villiers 71, Jamie Rogers 20; Craig Boultwood 5-27, Alastair 3-34)
Craig Boultwood took 5 wickets (Cregagh CC)

Nikhilesh Ravikrishnan hit 13 fours and 4 sixes in his 97, sharing a 5th wicket stand of 108 in 18 overs with Craig Boultwood (34). There were runs too for Adam Beattie (39), Jonny Moore (32), Jay Hunter (26) and Aaron Johnston (24) in a Cregagh total of 299 - four wickets for William Mann. The target looked achievable with in-form South African Quintin Dreyer racing to 98 from 71 balls - 15 fours, 3 sixes - adding 101 for the third wicket with Michael Villiers, who hit 8 fours in his 71. However, from 183 for 2, Craig Boultwood's five wickets saw The Mall side dismissed for 250.

Drumaness Superkings 243/9 (50 overs: Neil Gelston 69*, James Cunningham 42; Andrew Bingham 3-41, Timmy McClure 2-37, Mark Hanna 2-48)
Donacloney Mill 245/3 (36.1 overs: Atish Varape 151*, Neil Kilpatrick 27)
Donacloney Mill made light work of a 244-run target as Indian professional Atish Varape went on the rampage. In a savage display of controlled aggression, he hit 25 boundaries in an unbeaten 151, adding 70 for the third wicket with Neil Kilpatrick (27) and an unbroken 119 in 14 overs for the fourth with Matthew Lyttle (16*). Earlier, Neil Gelston scored an unbeaten 69 (8 fours, 1 six), while opener James Cunningham's 42 also included 8 fours.

Lewis them took three wickets with the ball as the hosts were kept to 170, despite 43 from Ross Bryans and 36 from opener Robert Smith. The win ensures Derriaghy stay top of Section One and on course for an immediate return to the Premiership.
Armagh beat Ballymena by 3 wickets
The Mall, 2 June.
Ballymena 284/7 (50 overs: John Glass 124, Glen Adams 77; Ben Mackey 4-41)
Armagh 290/7 (43.1 overs: Quentin Dreyer 195*, Bryden Laing 45; Sam Glass 3-40)
Quintin Dreyer scored 195 not out (Amy Robinson (Armagh CC))
A punishing unbeaten 195 from South African professional Quintin Dreyer powered Armagh to a 3-wicket win over Ballymena at The Mall. Dreyers bludgeoned 14 fours and 13 sixes in his 119-ball stay, adding 137 in 16 overs for the sixth wicket with countryman Bryden Laing (45) after they had been wobbling on 90 for 5 chasing 285. Earlier John Glass had also shown his power on his way to 124 off 108 balls (15 fours, 3 sixes) as he and Glen Adams (77) added 181 for the third wicket as Ballymena made 284 for 7. It looked a challenging total, but that didn't account for the destructiveness of Dreyer.
Donacloney Mill lost to Templepatrick by 27 runs
Factory Ground, 2 June.
Templepatrick 213 (47.4 overs: Ross Bryans 50, Samuel O'Mahony 46, Robert Smith 36, Richard Greer 21; Atish Varape 4-52, Mark Hanna 2-18)

A third wicket stand of 84 between Ross Bryans and Sam O'Mahony (46) helped Templepatrick to a total of 213 at the Factory Ground. Bryans hit 6 fours and 2 sixes in his 43-ball innings, while there were runs too for Robert Smith (36) and Richard Greer (21). Atish Varpe took four wickets and top-scored with 32 in the chase. A 7th wicket stand of 72 between Matthew Lyttle and Mark Campbell - who each made 31 - kept the game in the balance, but four wickets for John Busby and three for O'Mahony clinched a 27-run win for Templepatrick.
Armagh beat Lurgan by 11 runs
The Mall, 4/5 June.
Armagh 255 (48.5 overs; Sam Wilson 101, Harry Doyle 63, Quintin Dreyer 27: Reghard Els 3-36, Darwish Nazari 2-44, Peter Maxwell 2-50)
Lurgan 244/9 (50 overs; Jack Harrison 63, Reghard Els 44, Syed Ali 22; Matthew Wright 2-35, Quintin Dreyer 2-43)
Sam Wilson scored 101 (Armagh CC)
Sam Wilson's century helped Armagh to an 11-run win over Lurgan in a match played over two nights at The Mall. Wilson hit 9 fours and 4 sixes in his 101, sharing a crucial stand with Harry Doyle who scored 63 as Armagh made a challenging 255. Lurgan made a brave fist of the chase, with Jack Harrison (63) and Reghard Els (44) making runs. In the end though, two wickets apiece from Matthew Wright and Quintin Dreyer kept the Pollock Park to 244 for 9 in an entertaining contest that could have gone either way.
Lurgan lost to Cregagh by 2 wickets
Pollock Park, 27 May.
Lurgan 93 (34.4 overs: Callum Grieve 39; Daniel Henry 3-10, Graeme Hassard 2-10, Alastair Watt 2-29)
Cregagh 94/8 (34.4 overs: Aaron Johnston 42; Paul Stafford 3-17, Reghard Els 3-18, Peter Maxwell 2-27) (1.00pm start - match reduced to 42 overs.)
A struggle for Lurgan after being asked to bat, losing captain Stephen Johnston in the first over and Aussie Reghard Els in the second, both without scoring. Callum Grieve (39) and Stephen Chambers (19) with the only double figure scores as the innings folded, three wickets for Daniel Henry and two each for Graeme Hassard and Alastair Watt. What looked to be a straightforward chase for Cregagh got off to the worst possible start as Els took revenge for his own dismissal by removing Jay Hunter lbw first ball of the reply, and doubling up, bowling Paul Douglas in the same over, Cregagh 3/2 after 1 over. Danny Cooper and Aaron Johnston steadied the ship adding 34 before Cooper was stumped, a wicket for the evergreen Paul Stafford with Els taking his third leaving Cregagh 57/4 at the halfway stage. It looks like it will be Aaron Johnston or nobody to win this for Cregagh as they lose another two wickets. Still 34 needed and only 4 wickets left - overs not a problem surely? Make that three wickets left as Stafford gets his third, Bob Moore lbw without scoring. Johnston gone! A second wicket for Peter Maxwell and scoring at a standstill, can Cregagh creep across the line from here? Lurgan are going to have to find another bowler here if 42 overs = 2x9 & 3x8. Els and Stafford have bowled 9 each and John Guy 8. So here comes Darwish Nazari - Maxwell has bowled 6 so they may actually need a sixth bowler! Not required in the end as Alastair Watt and Daniel Henry add an unbroken 23 for the ninth wicket and the win.
Derriaghy beat Drumaness Superkings by 48 runs
Queensway, 26 May.
Derriaghy 154/6 (20 overs: Ryan Beckett 31, Ross Bailey 27*, Renco Adams 24, Ivan Sinovich 21; Neil Gelston 3-25)
Drumaness Superkings 107 (16.4 overs: James Cunningham 28; Craig Lewis 4-29, Wayne Hughes 3-18, Ross Bailey 2-16)
A comfortable win for the home side after posting a healthy 154 in their 20 overs. Craig Lewis the only batter in their first seven not to reach double figures but he made up for that with the ball. James Cunningham hit three Sixes in his Superkings top score of 28 but three wickets from Wayne Hughes knocked the visitors back before Lewis picked up four leaving Ross Bailey to deliver the coup de grace with the final two in his fourth over.
Donacloney Mill lost to Belfast by 1 wicket
Banford Green, Tullylish, 26 May.
Donacloney Mill 297 (46.3 overs: Ryan Matthews 73, Atish Varape 72, Shane Warren 51, Neil Kilpatrick 41; Mohhammad Chaudrhary 4-29, Sameer Mohd 2-53)
Belfast 299/9 (48.3 overs: Ferhan Saeed 80, Sameer Mohd 63, Naveed Ahmad 45*, Krishna Pandey 32, Jayesh Lacmane 26; Ryan Matthews 4-61, Timmy McClure 2-39, Atish Varape 2-60)
An unbroken tenth wicket partnership of 42 saw Belfast snatch the points from the home side in this high scoring encounter. All looked lost for the visitors at 257/9 before Naveem Ahmad launched his assault blasting 4x4 and 4x6 including one to seal the win in his 45* off only 18 deliveries. His partner Shoaib Maqsood contributing 2 to the partnership. Earlier it had looked like Ryan Matthews had made the game safe for 'Cloney Mill with 73 and 4 wickets but it was not to be. A quickfire 80 from former Woodvale player Ferhan Saeed set Belfast on their way but it will be Ahmad's effort that will stick in the memory of his side and the throats of his opponents.

Donacloney Mill 197/9 (46 overs: Shane Warren 60, Neil Kilpatrick 36, Mark Hanna 20; Adam McCormick 3-32, Alastair Watt 2-29, Charlie Shannon 2-44)

Cregagh's total of 195 featured a 66 run fourth wicket partnership of 66 between Craig Boultwood and Aaron Johnston. But as partnerships go it was surpassed by the tenth wicket unbroken 25 between Andrew Bingham (17) and Timmy McClure (6) that saw Donacloney Mill to the win.
