Dunmurry v Ards Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 19 Aug 2017 at 12.00
Ards Cricket Club Lost By 28 runs by DLS

Match report Ards lost the toss and Dunmurry elected to bat first and got off to a great start as the opening batsman played well punishing the poor bowling on offer from Ards as only Jonny Harris bowled with any consistency of line and length. Dunmurry had reached 100 without losing any wickets and were on course for a total well in excess of 200 runs, it was the introduction of the slow bowlers Benji Cathcart and teenager Ethan Davies which changed the game for Ards with Davies first removing one opener rather fortuitously for a well made 59 then in his next over he took a stunning caught and bowled to remove the other opener, Cathcart then got in on the action removing the dangerous Dunmurry batsman out stumped for 0 with a great piece of work from Harry Jackson behind the stumps. Ards were now bowling consistently and were holding some good catches and fielding well with young Davies shining in the field, Dunmurry finished the innings on 175/8 from 35 overs a good effort in the field from a young inexperienced team who kept going till the end and with big Jonny Harris leading the bowling attack he picked up the two wickets his first spell deserved to finish with 2-18 and Cathcart 2-22 and Davies 4-27 the other wicket takers.
Ards started solidly with Andrew Savage and Harry Jackson putting on 40 for the first wicket , Jackson was first man out for 9 as the first change bowler made the breakthrough, Savage was looking good and played a great straight six unfortunately he was next man out also clean bowled and when the dangerous Dunmurry bowler removed Owen Roberts for a duck and Paul Nihell for 1 Ards were struggling with Ards on 81 for four wickets down needing 95 off the final 11 overs the rain came down and with the pitch not drying sufficiently to finish the full 35 overs Ards were left losers by 28 runs on Duckworth Lewis with the not out batsman Cathcart on 20 and Hulbert on 6
