Donaghadee v Ards Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sun 21 Jul 2013 at 12.00
Ards Cricket Club Won by 3 wkts

Match report Ards chased down a good score by Donaghadee to win an important victory in a game which see-sawed between the sides all afternoon at Northfield. Both teams needed the points for different reasons: the 'Dee to move away from the foot of the table; and Ards to maintain their promotion chances.
Batting first, Donaghadee posted a challenging 159 for 8 in their 35 overs, with Freddie Gilroy top scoring with 41, the attacking Coffey made 32 and McVeight 17 at the end. The 2 Martins (Ross and Graeme) each claimed 2 wickets in economical figures, with Owen Roberts taking 3 "at the death".
Ards raced off at a run-a-ball in pursuit of this total as Ross Martin and Andrew Savage took the score into the 60s before Ross fell to the deceptively tempting bowling of Roger Stubbings. 3 others went the same way and with Gavin Fraser keeping it tight at his end, the 'Dee swung the game back in their favour. Roger then took the catch of the match diving full length at backward square leg to give Warren Martin the wicket of Matt Hulbert. However, as he had done the the earlier game in the season between the sides, Owen Roberts saw Ards over the winning line, with a great 47 not out, mixing aggression and defence, ably assisted at the end bt the experience of Graeme Martin.
So, an excellent game which keeps Ards at the right end of the table, but if the 'Dee play like this every week they have every chance of moving off the bottom.
