Typhoons 194 (45.5 overs) M Waldron 43, A Canning 35*, L Little 30; A Kelly 3-35, L Paul 3-44
Ardmore 160-8 (40.0 overs, T Loen 37, R Gaur 33*, R Macbeth 3-16)
Brigade 72 (21.4 overs, C Brolly 4-9, T Koen 2-20, R Gaur 2-22)
Brigade's batting woes continued as they crumbled to an 88-run loss at The Bleachgreen. Ardmore's total of 160 for 8 looked modest, which owed much to Tyron Koen (37), an unbeaten 33 from Rachit Gaur against his former club, and a late, quickfire 23 from Dave Bezzant. The Brigade attack was badly hampered by injuries, but Ryan Macbeth bowled well in his 3 for 16 from six overs. The chase was soon in tatters with Koen (2-20) and Gaur (2-22) making early inroads, and Conor Brolly (4-9) then mopped up the middle and late order - Brigade all out for 72 with only skipper Andy Britton (21) showing any serious resistance.
Fox Lodge 253-8 (40.0 overs, D McCarter 61, L Hayes 53, M Marais 38, B Mills 4-49, A Boyd 2-34)

Glendermott gave it a right go, but despite a half century from Pakistan professional Jamal Anwar (50) and 47 from Nathan McGuire, they fell short by ten runs.

St Johnston completed a dream weekend as they won by 45 runs at Bonds Glen after making 259 for 9. Michael Rankin top scored with 70, while David Macbeth made 54, and Sabin Babu 37 in a solid batting display. The Bee Gees made a right fight of it, with Johnny Haslett top scoring with 42, Simon Killen making 37 and young Sam Kincaid scoring 35. In the end though they left themselves just too much to do, with Nathan Cole taking four wickets and Ian Macbeth two in another impressive display.

Bready stayed top of Group A after another fine bowling display saw them beat Strabane by seven wickets.

Skipper David Scanlon took three wickets, while there were two apiece for Conor Olphert, Gregory McFaul and teenage spinner Gavin Roulston. Roulston (24) was in the runs too as Bready made light of the early loss of David Rankin to ease to a seven wickets win - Scott Macbeth (40*) and Jamie Magee (29*) sharing an unbroken fourth wicket stand of 57.
Ballyspallen 113 (36.3 overs, D Perera 47, M Roulston 2-11, M Snodgrass 2-22, M Piedt 2-26)
Burndennett 111 (20.1 overs, Ste Kennedy 4-13, D Perera 4-22)
Closest game of the afternoon was at Burndennett where the home side failed by just two runs to get past Ballyspallen. Demith Perera top scored with 47 and Zak Guy added a late unbeaten 23 as the Roe Valley outfit posted what looked like a modest 113 all out. Mark Roulston (2-11), Mark Snodgrass (2-22), Marcello Piedt (2-26) and Mark Pollock (2-27) all bowled well, but the home side contrived to get themselves in a tangle in reply. Andy Barr fared best as he made 23, Eddie McGettigan added 20, but Corey Roulston (13 not out) could find no-one to stay with him as the innings closed on 111. Stephen Kennedy (4-13) and Perera (4-22) took full advantage as 'Spallen secured a narrow win.

Hunter hit 17 fours and a six is his 104 while his batting partner had 11 boundaries and 4 sixes in his 100- the pair sharing a 167-run stand for the third wicket. Jared Wilson's quick-fire 58 not out included 6 sixes and 2 fours as Newbuildings made 330-5 from their 40 overs. The Bannsiders, fresh from Saturday's batting collapse at home to Ballyspallen fared much better in their reply this time, albeit without really ever threatening to chase down the win. Tanuj Chopra made 51 and Matthew Hutchinson 48, while there were also cameos from Ravindra Karunaratne (35), Varun Chopra (26) and Rory Knox (24) in a total of 231 all out. A brilliant effort with the ball from Gary Mitchell (6-39) with support from Ross Hunter (2-26) steered the hosts to a comfortable win.

Darren Moan made an aggressive 58 (6 sixes and a four) while Timmy Dougherty added an unbeaten 55 and William Finlay 38 in 'Clooney's very respectable 202-5. Brothers Robbie (2-35) and Andy Millar (2-54) fared best with the ball while the reply was down to the brilliance of Tommy Orr. The Warriors player batted beautifully, hitting 7 sixes and 6 fours- carrying his bat for an unbeaten 127. Mark Averill weighed in with 42 while Jason Wallace helped himself to 4-42 for the bowling side; however Orr's superb knock ensured his side sealed a deserved win.

Three wickets apiece for Tom Mayes - including Jacques Snyman for 0 - and Paul Stirling, plus two for Neil Brand saw Carrick dismissed for 146. Four wickets for Michael Armstrong saw North Down in all sorts of strife at 53 for 6, but Neil Brand top scored with 80 not out, sharing an unbroken seventh wicket stand of 95 with Stuart Nelson (26*) to seal the win on a track where batting was a challenge.
Waringstown 202-6 (50.0 overs, J Gibson 43, G Hume 34, G Thompson 32*, N Whitworth 2-29, J Manley 2-38)
Lisburn 61 (32.2 overs, J Gibson 4-17, R Allen 2-14)

A solid batting effort saw contributions from Jamie Gibson (43), Graham Hume (34), Greg Thompson (32*), James McCollum (29) and Ross Allen (28*) in their 202 for 6.

Cliftonville Academy 81 (35.4 overs, D Hendricks 26, T Johnston 7-13, B Adair 2-16)
Biggest winners of the day were CSNI as overseas professional Troy Johnson made quite an impact on debut. He hit 67 as he and Paddy Beverland (71) added 132 in 29 overs for the second wicket against Cliftonville Academy. That gave the perfect platform for skipper Stuart Thompson (64) and Marc Ellison (30) who both hit three sixes as they added 61 in six overs to take CSNI to 273 for 5. Johnson then took 7 for 13 as CA went from 46 for 1 to 81 all out - CSNI winning by 192 runs.

Muckamore skipper Sam Gordon claimed 5 for 15, while both Neil Gill and Pavan Karthik took 2 for 25.

However Harry Zimmermann (4-29) and Dharm Singh (5-45) intervened as they lost five wickets for just 10 runs.

Coleraine 142 (28.3 overs, R Karunaratne 75, D Perera 5-45, Ste Kennedy 3-24, J Thompson 2-34)

Perera hit 5 sixes and 4 fours in his 75, sharing a 4th wicket stand of 76 in 16 overs with Luke Gilfillan (21). Stephen Kennedy (31) and James Thompson (23) chipped in vital runs as 'Spallen made 180 for 7 - Stephen Hutchinson (3-19) best with the ball for the Bannsiders. Karunaratne then looked to be taking Coleraine to the win as he clubbed 8 fours and 4 sixes in his 75 from just 58 balls. However he was dismissed by Perera from the last ball of the 20th over, which sparked a dramatic collapse. Coleraine lost seven wickets for 15 runs going from 127 for 3 to 142 all out - Perera (5-45)taking five wickets, well supported by Stephen Kennedy (3-24) and James Thompson (2-34) in the 38-run win.

Donemana were never in trouble as they chased down their modest target, despite the best efforts of Ehtesham Ahmed (3-30).

Killyclooney 248 (46.1 overs, A Colhoun 104, R McMorris 45, A Walker 3-19, A Doherty 3-34)

A fourth wicket stand of 130 in 25 overs between Ruan Cronje and David Delany powered Clontarf to a 77-run win over Merrion at Anglesea Road. Cronje hit 12 fours in his 71, while Delany's growing status as a genuine all-rounder continued as he made 56, which included 9 fours and a six. John McNally (32) and Bobbo Forrest (25) shared a sixth wicket stand of 54 in eight overs that took the total up to a challenging 255. Stephen Doheny's half century, allied with runs for Swapnil Modgill (39) and John Anderson (31) had Merrion well placed at 125 for 2, but the wheels came off as Paul Ryan took four wickets, while Delany claimed three to cap an impressive all-round display in a 77-run win.

The Irish international hit 10 fours and cleared the ropes four times in an innings that was time to perfection. Rory Anders (3-32) early burst saw Cork County in trouble at 5 for 3, but a stand of 57 between Rudolph Pollard (40) and Cormac Hassett (34) hinted at a recovery. However, despite a further 31 from Najeeb Anjum, the hosts were bowled out for 143, with Padraic Flanagan also claiming three scalps, and Mitchell Thompson taking 2 for 26.

Kildare's innings was soon in tatters with Mitchell (4-28), Carroll (3-22) and Mark Tonge (2-25) doing the damage, and it took an unbeaten 35 from Moize Haider, who hit five fours and two sixes in his 21-ball knock to get them to their final score of 95.

The Phoenix attack stuck to their task well with two wickets each for Conor Sheil, Tyrone Kane and Ben White.
The Hills 247-7 (50 overs; C McLoughlin-Gavin 113, A Kavanagh 58, M Donegan 36; A Matthew 3-35, L McCarthy 3-40)
