Ards Cricket Club Won

Match report The home team bowled first and Rodgers took an early wicket with the score on 13, G McClune then joined Victoria captain J Bunting at the crease and with some hefty hitting the score progressed to 73 before Bunting was out LBW to Anderson for 12. C Marshall was the next wicket to fall with the score on 89 run out by some quick reactions from Ryan Patterson. At this point Victoria suffered an unfortunate incident where McClune, who up to this point had scored 59, attempted to hook a sharp ball from Anderson however the ball caught the top edge of the bat and hit the batsman above his right eye. It was necessary for McClune to leave the field to get medical attention at the Ards Minor Injuries unit. From this point on the Victoria batsmen offered little resistance and from a score of 93 for 3 and 1 retired hurt, they eventually were all out for 122. McClune did bravely return to the crease as 10th wicket but only added 2 runs to his score before falling to the next delivery from B Maxwell. The best of the Ards bowlers were B Maxwell with 4 wickets for 11 followed by N Anderson 4 for 28 and G Rodgers 1 for 29

Ards openers J Osborne and J Calvin started the Ards reply however Osborne was bowled by Bunting in the 1st over. Stephen Scott then joined Calvin at the crease but with the score on 19 Scott was given out caught behind for 2. Neil Anderson was the next in to bat for Ards and together with Calvin the score progressed to 43 before Calvin was out for a solid 30, sharply stumped off the bowling of C Boomer. The next three Ards batsmen came and went, so with the score at 67 for 6 things were looking tight, however Paul Cox then came in to bat and together with Neil Anderson added 56 runs from the next 6 overs. Paul Cox finishing on an excellent 42 not out and Anderson on 25 not out.
