Brigade make it three with easy win
Brigade have taken a firm hold of their group in the White Horse Hotel T20 Cup after Andy Britton’s side posted a 97-run win over Killyclooney at sun-splashed Beechgrove this afternoon. It was the second time in a week that the two teams had clashed at this venue and the outcome here was only more emphatic than the first.
A third wicket partnership between David Barr and Kyle Magee worth 106 set the scene for the hosts’ impressive impressive total of 217-4. Barr hit 3 sixes and 7 fours on his way to 76 while Magee was also very positive, hitting 5 sixes and 4 fours in his unbeaten 67.
Tumbling catch for Kyle Magee
David Murdock added a quick 28 and skipper Britton a similar-styled 26 with Jason Wallace 2-25 faring best of the bowlers.
The brothers Moan posted a 42-run stand for the first wicket in ‘Clooney’s reply- Giles making 30 and Darren 24, but they were never in the hunt. Skipper Timmy Dougherty was unbeaten on 19 at the end but Ross Allen (3-25) and Nick Donnell (2-15) saw to their side through to a maximum points win.
Umpire Gareth Watson not convinced by Ross Allen’s appeal
