Kelly double hundred highlight as Pembroke stay top
Robin Kelly of Pembroke earned the plaudits after a quite incredible batting performance on Monday.
The 19 year old Zimbabwean (who is an Irish passport holder as his father is Irish) made the most of the short boundaries at Rush scoring 219 in 147 balls, with 14 sixes and 16 fours.
The innings has led to calls for the teenager to be included in the Ireland World Cup squad which will play in Australia later this summer.
Pembroke scored a mammoth 412/6 as Theo Lawson (46) shared an opening stand of 194 with Kelly.
Barry McCarthy rubbed salt into the Rush wounds hitting 5 sixes as he scored 45 from just 18 balls.
That was 262 too many for Rush who managed 150 in reply - 3 wickets apiece for Bill Whaley, Barry McCarthy and Paul Lawson.
The students of Dublin University earned their second win of the season with a convincing win against Leinster seconds.
Trinity skipper Eoghan Delany was their hero with the bat, hitting 9 fours and 5 sixes in an unbeaten 113 as they totalled 232 - Wian Voerwood (30) and Eoghan Conway (25) making vitak contributions.
Gareth Delany (3-54) and Rob Kenealy (2-51) both did well, with a special mention for ace photographer Rob O'Connor who bowled 5 maidens, conceding just 13 runs in his ten over spell.
In reply Leinster were shot out for just 96, as Conor Hoey rolled back the years taking 6 for 21. Only Peter O'Donnell with 35 offered any resistance as the Rathmines side lost by 136 runs.
The valuable win could go a long way to ensuring the students stay in the division next year.
Phoenix were comfortable 111 run winners at home to Cork County. Steenkamp (55), Tom Anders (37), Conor Kelly (31) and McKay (31) helped them to 209, and in reply Conor Kelly (4-31) ripped through the Munster men batting as they managed just 98.
The final game saw Malahide beat Old Belvedere by 66 runs, with Johnny Pryor top scoring with 54 as Malahide scored 218 for 6. Nick Turner and Ryan Gallagher both scored 33 in a solid batting display.
Old Belvedere struggled to keep in the game despite Nethula scoring 51 and Baker an unbeaten 33.
Glen Kirwan (4-40), Callum Riches (2-14) and Ryan Gallagher (2-21) doing the honours with the ball.
