Ards Cricket Club 3rd XI v Victoria III on Sat 13 Aug 2011 at 12 noon
Ards Cricket Club Won by 15 runs

Match report A superb bowling and fielding display defended a modest score to ensure a 7th (and 3rd consecutive) league victory.
In a typically keenly-contested contest with Victoria, Ards amassed a patient 91 in their 30 overs in slow batting conditions following 2-3 days almost continuous drizzle or rain. Andrew Curry contributed a personal best and top score of 16, together with a patient 13 not out from Roy Keenan.
Once again the Ards bowlers rose to their task, with Andrew Curry and Andrew Wright bowling good opening spells. Roy Keenan and Tim Carson then applied their customary tight grip on the scoring rate, with only 26 runs coming from their combined 12 overs. Tim Carson also picked up 4 wickets,incluiding 2 in a row and 3 in an over, and by the end of their spells, the visitors were needing 5 an over to win with only a couple of wickets remaining. Curtis McCartney and Andrew Wright then mopped up the tail to leave Victoria shocked to lose a match they probably expected to win at the tea interval.
