BISC v Ards Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 13 May 2018 at 1.00
Ards Cricket Club Lost By 100 runs

Match report Ards travelled to Mallusk with a strong team hoping to cause an upset against BISC, an established Section 2 team and on winning the toss skipper Savage elected to bowl. For the first 25 overs Ards were going well, with BISC 86/5 with the Ards bowlers all performing well. However the number four batsmen was still in and looking dangerous and he took full advantage of a lack of a regular fifth Ards bowler as he accelerated to an excellent 96, taking his team up to an impressive 254, probably 50 more than Ards were hoping for but there were positives to take from the effort of the four main bowlers with the returning Paul Cox particularly impressive picking up 3 wickets including 2 in 2 balls and the veteran Gareth Rodgers bowling ten overs straight in a miserly opening spell.
Ards opened with Cathcart and Conor Balfour. However a hasty quick single resulted in Balfour being run out in the second over bringing Sam Ingham to the crease. Having not held a bat since last season he looked in control from the off as along with Benji they took Ards past fifty, both looking well set. However Sam, trying to play his trade mark leg side whip, managed to edge behind for a promising 26. Skipper Savage was in at four and he launched a huge straight six, but the well-set Cathcart was bowled when looking dangerous on 35 and Savage followed quickly leaving Ards four down and under100, William Mayne and Paul Cox rebuilt the innings for a while giving Ards hope of a victory with Cox hitting three big sixes, but when Mayne was out for 16 the rest of the line up failed to give Cox any significant support, as the last four batsmen failed to trouble the scorers, leaving Ards all out for 153, with Cox not out 36 to go with his 3 wickets capped a good all-round performance
