Ards Cricket Club 3rd XI v Donaghcloney on Wed 13 Jun 2012 at 6.00
Ards Cricket Club Lost by 6 wkts

Match report This was a much better performance by Ards, who lost on the third ball of the last over, in a much closer game than the result would suggest.
Despite playing on the artificial wicket, the bowling attacks of both sides largely dominated in a relativelt low scoring match. Ards had first use of the track and made steady progress, their total mostly built around a middle order partnership between Michael Martin and Roy Keenan, which only ended in the final over. Their efforts enabled the home team to finish on 77 for 7.
A miserly opening spell from Roy Keenan and Andrew Curry only conceded a combined total of 19 runs for the loss of one wicket. Andrew Wright, held back to later in the innings, also bowled very well, supported by Ross Martin and Curtis McCartney. However, the Ards total was always going to be hard to defend and the scores were tied going into the last over, where the third ball was hoisted to mid wicket with all the fielders in to prevent a single.
So it was another defeat, despite Ards' better showing in a well contested and enjoyable match.
