James Shannon was joint top-scorer with an unbeaten 47 for the Northern Knights in Monday's game

The Northern Knights exacted revenge from their T20 defeat by the North West Warriors on Sunday by routing the same opposition in Monday's one-day Inter-Pro contest at Comber.

Showers badly affected Monday's game as James Shannon's unbeaten 47 helped the Knights reach 227-4 in their 42 overs.

In reply, the Warriors reached 95-8 in 23.3 overs before a halt was called as they lost under the run-rate formula.

Andrew White, James Cameron-Down and David Simpson all took two wickets.

Chris Dougherty, keen to make up for Sunday's golden duck, was joined by Nick Larkin and these two gave their team a solid start with a 55-run stand.

Lee Nelson joined Shannon in scoring 47 with Shane Getkate contributing 36.

For the Warriors, Scott Campbell and David Rankin knocked off 28 in the first five and a bit overs but disaster struck at that point for the visitors as Simpson removed them both in successive balls.

Stuart Thompson, Johnny Thompson and Brian Allen were all dismissed between the showers by a combination of White and Cameron-Dow.

It was just a matter of time after that and although skipper McBrine hit 24 late on, a frustrating day was finally brought to an end by more rain.

NORTHERN KNIGHTS 227/4 (42 overs) J Shannon 47*, L Nelson 47, S Getkate 36*, N Larkin 30, C Dougherty 21, R Chopra 2-40

NORTH WEST WARRIORS 95/8 (23.3 overs) A Mc Brine 24, D Simpson 2-3, A White 2-20, J Cameron-Dow 2-29

Northern Knights won by 106 runs (D/L)
