Ards Cricket Club 1st XI v Drumaness on Tue 15 May 2018 at 6.00
Ards Cricket Club Won By 8 wickets

Match report An excellent all-round performance from start to finish resulted in Ards gaining a first win of the season in the Lagan Valley Steels 20/20 Shield at home to Drumaness on Tuesday 15th May.
Ards skipper, Andrew Savage, won the toss and elected to field. The opening bowlers, Gareth Rodgers and Arafat Khan, started well, keeping the run rate down resulting in two early run outs. Wickets fell regularly as the Ards bowlers were well on top, with Conor Balfour and Paul Cox also bowling tidy spells, as every bowler picked up wickets: Cox, Balfour and Arafat two a piece; Rodgers one; and three run outs. Ards skittled the visitors for 87 In just the 16th over with only Gary Walsh (an excellent 57) making double figures.
Ards started the chase positively. Sam Ingham made a quick 17 before being bowled by one that kept a little low, Skipper Savage joined player coach Benji Cathcart at the crease and Ards were racing along. With Savage looking to score quickly, he went for a big shot too many and was excellently caught on the long off boundary. The in-form Paul Cox was next in and he got off the mark with a well timed straight six. Along with Cathcart he saw Ards home in a hurry, as Ards raced to victory in the 12th over to complete a comprehensive team performance, set up by the excellent bowling and fielding from the young, energetic Ards team
