Ards Cricket Club Under 15 XI and Graham Cup team v Bangor on Wed 22 Jun 2016 at 6.00
Ards Cricket Club Lost by 27 runs

Match report Neighbours Bangor were Ards' opponents for their 1st home league match of the 2016 season. Ards won the toss and put Bangor in to bat but after an early rain interruption the match was reduced to 15 overs. Pyper and White put together a very good opening partnership with White (27) first to be dismissed well caught by Glen Warwick off Craig Boobyer. Simpson (6) was next to fall well caught again by Frankie Davis off skipper, Ethan Davies, but Pyper's valuable knock of 46no well supported by A Christie (19no) took the Bangor score to 109 after the allotted 15 overs. Davies (1-17) and Boobyer (1-16) were the successful Ards bowlers.

Ards' reply started well with Harry Jackson and Calum McDaid reaching 32 for 0 after 4 overs with Jackson in particular playing very positively. However, the 5th over ultimately proved to be pivotal moment in the game as Bell dismissed Jackson (20), who played on, Davies (0), who skied a sweep shot, and McDaid (3), who was bowled off his pads, to leave the Ards' innings in tatters. Bell also removed Warwick (4) shortly although Eddie Hawkins (9) and Craig Boobyer (8) mounted a bit of a recovery before the former was run out and Boobyer caught off R Christie. Noah Greenauld (9no) and Alex Miller (2no) scored some useful runs in the final overs but Ards final total of 82 for 7 fell 27 runs short of Bangor's score. Bell with 4-11 was the most successful Bangor bowler.

The Ards boys will feel they didn't perform to their full potential on this occasion but Bangor were the better side on the evening coping better with the tricky conditions and thoroughly deserved their victory. Next up for the boys is another away fixture against section favourites Holywood.
