Ards Cricket Club 3rd XI v Academy IV on Sun 31 Jul 2011 at 12.30
Ards Cricket Club Won by 33 runs

Match report Ards returned to winning ways with a well-earned victory over a mostly young Academy side. Asked to bat first, Ards got off to a good start with Shamu (24) and Andrew Macrory (9) both looking well set, before getting out. Tim Carson and Peter Maxwell combined in a half century partnership before the latter was dismissed for an aggressive 41, with the score on 113. Carson continued on and then shared a stand of 30 with Curtis McCartney before falling for 49 in the 28th over, which helped the Ards total to a very creditable and defendable 140 for 6 at the end of their 30 overs.
Academy approached their task positively, both openers happy to scamper several quick singles, but they never really dominated the Ards attack and it was the three slower bowlers who reaped the rewards of the hard work done by their faster colleagues. Tim Carson contributed a steady and econonical spell, while Roy Keenan with 2 wickets in 2 balls and "Man of the Match" Peter Maxwell, with 4 wickets effected a collapse, as the run rate steadily increased. In the end, this pressure proved too much and Academy fell 33 runs short.
