Cricket: Kyle inspires Waringstown win
Kyle McCallan returned to the Waringstown team yesterday and helped them into joint second place in the Ulster Bank Premier League with an eight wickets victory over Downpatrick.
The game at the Meadow was the only one in the top flight to be completed at the weekend, after the only two games to start on Saturday were rained off.
McCallan took four for 18 as Downpatrick were dismissed for 105 — slow left armer Gary Kidd took three for 27 — and McCallan then scored 50 not out as the Villagers knocked off the runs in 26.2 overs.
In the North West, Coleraine and Donemana eased any relegation worries with their fourth wins of the season. Donemana’s victory denied Fox Lodge a return to the top of the table when, despite scoring only 77, they bowled out the Foxes for 69.
In the Twenty20 game at Eglinton, the home team were dismissed for 90 in 16.5 overs with Ricky Stewart, the only player to reach double figures — he made 26 not out. The Bannsiders lost five wickets and had only five balls to spare when Paul Douglas and Alistair Handforth saw them home.
Saturday’s four scheduled Senior One league games were also started and abandoned.
