IC - Intermediate Cup
Bangor II v Instonians III - 27th May 2017 (Cup)
Bangor II's won the toss and decided to bowl first against Instonian III’s in the inaugural match to be held at the Bangor Grammar School pitch in dry conditions, despite the forecast of rain that had persisted all week for Saturday. Bangor started well enough with opening bowlers Ryan Chambers and Adam Bell bowling a good off stump line restricting the score in the first 7 overs to four an over but without a breakthrough.
The introduction of Connor Cox to the attack together with Kai McPeak saw a swing in the balance of the game with Instonians losing 4 wickets in the next ten overs. At this stage Connor had bowling figures of 5-3-4-3 eventually finishing his 7 overs with 3 wickets and 16 runs conceded.
Despite this period of having the upper hand the Instonians opening batsman (R McKibben) had survived and now looked to push on for the last 15 overs with 4 colleagues chipping in with high teens / low twenty scores.
After some bad luck in the field, including a nine run wide ball that bounced unwaveringly back towards the stowed helment and onwards to the boundary, Instonians finished at 173 for 8 off their 35 overs and in the driving seat.
Bangor made a solid start but never got up towards the required run rate. Some resistance was shown by stand in skipper Callum Houstoun (26) and Kai McPeack (20) but the team were all bowled out in the 32nd over for 103 giving Instonians a 70 run victory and proving a victory for age over youth.
Instonians III 173-8 (R McKibben 43, A Bell 3-38)
Bangor II 103 (C Houstoun 26)
Bangor II lost by 70 runs
Bangor II v Carrickfergus II - 6th May 2017 (League)
Bangor II's lost the toss and were put into bat by Carrickfergus II’s at Upritchard under overcast conditions that were forecast to clear over the afternoon. Bangor lost opener Paul Houstoun (2 runs) in the 3rd over that saw Kai McPeak join Matthew Quinn at the wicket. The two lower sixth pupils first steadied the ship through resolute defence and then started to get on top of the bowling with some lovely stroke play. Matthew Quinn (15 runs) was dismissed in the 14 over with the score on 43.
This proved to be the prompt that unleashed Kai McPeak into a free flowing phase of stroke play, aided and abetted by Adam McCusker (11 runs) and Danny Young (17 runs), against some fierce bowling and a particular dual with A Shetty seeing a mix of good deliveries, bouncers and balls being crashed to the boundary.
Kai fell for 79 with the score at 131 in the 30th over having significantly bolstered the run rate in the middle phase of the game. With five overs left and 6 wickets remaining the rest of the team looked to capitalise on position with success largely limited to Chris Pyper who remained unbeaten on 13 as Bangor reached 153 for 8 off the allotted 35 overs. Bangor went into tea feeling positive but conscious that this was a quick outfield.
Carrickfergus quickly showed why they’ve been runner up in the league for the last two seasons with an aggressive approach to their batting which, if a spectator, would have been very enjoyable to watch. Bangor’s young bowling attack (all under 17) will learn from the experience and seek variations to counter such tactics in the future. Most notable in the bowling was Connor Cox who started with two overs for 3 runs during the onslaught before the experienced batsmen got to grips with his variation.
Carrickfergus passed the Bangor score in the 15th over with the one wicket taken falling to Will Simpson just in time to let everyone watch the Ulster vs Leinster match.
Bangor II 152-8 (K McPeak 79)
Carrickfergue II 157-1 (A Shetty 73*)
Bangor II lost by 9 wkts
