Ards Cricket Club 2nd XI v Dundrum 2 on Sat 16 Jul 2011 at 12.00
Ards Cricket Club Lost by 1 wicket

Match report Dundrum won the toss and put Ards into bat with the threat of showers in the air. Ards got off to the worst start possible when Sam Ingham got a leading edge first ball and skied the ball to the fielder; next batsman in was Jonny Calvin who has been short of runs of late but he was in good form from the start scoring quickly and hitting a number of boundaries scoring an excellent agressive 53. Ards batting collapsed from a good position, with only one other batsman hitting double figures and slumped to a below par and disappointing 108 all out with Steven Maxwell bowling well with 5-14 for Dundrum.

Ards bowling didn't get off to the best start with Dundrum batsman J Calvert playing well and putting the bad ball away, the breakthrough coming when Devlin removed both openers in his forth over. The introduction of young spinner Tim Carson, as has been the case in recent weeks, proved productive for Ards as he claimed 3 wickets in his first four overs with the young Dundrum captain being the only batsman to play him; with a sense of security he ensured that Carson went wicketless for the rest of his spell. Ards at this stage sensed victory but R Mcmahon played an agressive knock of 23 and seemed to be guiding his side to victory with J Martin, however the match was in the balance again when Sam Ingham removed Martin for 7 and he then had a very close appeal for lbw which Edgar survived. The next twist came when the ever reliable Ian Mclean trapped Mcmahon for 23 and the game was poised with Dundrum needing single figures for victory and Ards needing one wicket. The last wicket pair held on to gain a victory for Dundrum in a tight well fought game.
