Victoria v Ards Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 13 Jun 2009 at 1pm
Ards Cricket Club Won

Match report Ards travelled to Lurgan to play Victoria CC in a repeat of the NCU Junior Cup match played between these two sides earlier in the season. Victoria elected to bat first and together the opening pair of Terry Follis and Jack Haire batting very steadily progressing the score to 92 runs before Haire was caught by wicket-keeper Paul Mawhinney off the bowling of Stephen Scott. Victoria then lost three more wickest for an additional 40 runs before bringing together S Bunting and D Reiman to the crease. These two batsmen produced some good strokes and in partnership over the last 10 overs they took the score from 129 to 200 before Bunting was eventually bowled by P Cox for 29. D Reiman then lost his wicket for 40, bowled by N Anderson. Victoria ended their innings on 208 for 5 from their allocated 50 overs.
P Cox was the best of the Ards bowlers finishing on 2 for 28, with B Maxwell, S Scott, G Rodgers and N Anderson each taking 1 wicket .
After tea Ards opened their innings however they lost two early wickets (P Mawhinney and S Scott) and were on 28 for 2. This brought Andrew Savage to the crease who together with opener Jonathan Keenan then played some fine shots and took the score to 106 off 22 overs before Savage was out off the bowling of S Adair for 27. Neil Anderson then joined Keenan and these two experienced players produced some excellent batting and eventually reached the required target of 209 runs. This total was achieved off 37 overs, with Johnny Keenan finishing on 74 not out and Neil Anderson on 43 not out.
This was an another excellent result for Ards who now have two wins in their league campaign, however with extras coming in at over 50 in the Victoria Innings there is still plenty of room for improvement, which hopefully will be addressed by the various bowlers attending the Thursday night practice sessions.
