Ian Callender (Belfast Telegraph)
The OíNeillís Ulster Plate Final is an all North West affair with Bonds Glen II facing Strabane II at Donemana on Sunday.
The Red Caps won a bowl-out in the semi-final to knock out Civil Service North II to give them the favouritesí role against their Qualifying 2 opponents who are in their first cup final.
Paul McNamee was the Strabane hero, striking the stumps twice in the sudden death shoot out.
Strabane were beaten finalists in the Plate in 2012.
Meanwhile, Richard Thompson aka 'RT' - nephew of the famous McBrine twins - smashed a brilliant century as Bonds Glen shocked hot favourites North Down.
The postponed Sam Jeffrey Cup semi-final between Glendermott and St Johnston takes place at the Rectory, also on Sunday, 24 hours after the teams meet in the Championship.
The winners of the cup tie will face Drummond in the final at Eglinton on Saturday week.
