Ards Cricket Club Won by 45 runs

Match report Ards continue winning ways

Ards start the game by batting first, once again off to the worst possible start, losing their 1st wicket in the 2nd over, and then closely followed by the loss of their 2nd. So out to the crease comes the hero from the previous match Paul Cox (65) who rescued the ards innings again, with a grand display of how to wield a bat, striking eight 4`s and three 6`s in his impressive 65. He was aided in the middle overs with the experience of Gary Stewart. However Ards middle order batsmen all getting out done by some sharp wicket keeping by Clogher`s keeper ( K Maxwell) who took 5 stumpings. Ards reached a total of 132 of the allotted 20 overs.

Ards then take to field again joyed by the batting display. Ards captain deciding to open the bowling with some spin of J Calvin, after a sluggish start continued his wicket taking habit, removing the opening batting partnership of K Maxwell & S Lynch for relatively little score. Clogher`s no 4 offered some resistance finishing 24 no, however into the attack came K Singh who proceeded to rip through the opposition`s middle order with some very accurate medium paced bowling. With clogher needing something like 80 runs from the last 5 overs into the attack comes the experienced bowling of D Mccullough who just dried up the runs. Good display all round with some very good fielding to boot.

However improvement still needed if ards are to mount a challenge towards the league title.

P Cox 65
K Singh 4-14-4
