Cooke Collegians v Ards Cricket Club 1st XI on Tue 14 May 2019 at 6.15
Ards Cricket Club Won By 6 wickets

Match report Ards travelled to Fullerton park for a second time in three matches this time playing section two team Cooke Collegians in the 20/20 shield. Losing the toss Ards bowled first and opening bowlers William Mayne and Pete Devlin bowled tidy spells without making a breakthrough but they kept the home teams run rate in check, The introduction of skipper Andrew Savage resulted in the first wicket falling he picked up a second wicket to finish with 2-16 in his four overs second change bowler Conor Balfour continued his impressive form from Larne on Saturday with another impressive spell to pick up 2-23. The pressure Ards were putting on Cooke with good bowling and fielding resulted in four run outs and when Sam Ingham returned to the attack in the last over he picked up the final two wickets leaving the home side 126 all out in 20 overs.
The Ards reply started slowly with the Cooke opening bowlers starting well resulting in Harry Jackson being out for 10 in the fourth over with the score on 12, Savage was next man in and with the run rate required rising he took it upon himself to take the attack to the Cooke bowling as he smacked a quick fire 25 including 3 sixes and hit the dangerous spinner out of the attack and put Ards in pole position in the run chase and with the impressive Sam Ingham playing responsibly and when Savage was out Owen Roberts played another important supporting role with a quick 16 to get Ards close to victory and despite Roberts and William Mayne falling it was Ingham who led Ards home with 54 not out his second half century in as many matches, Ards chased down the 127 to win with two overs to spare and 6 wickets in hand an impressive performance against a team a division above.
