Dumfries & Galloway in their second match of the season again came second to their area opponents and again by 3 wickets in a close match following a similar pattern.
Batting first the Solway boys posted a total which proved to be competitive despite some good bowling by the Ayrshire opening bowlers. They then made inroads to get within touching distance of victory only to be denied by some positive batting at number five. Eleven-year-old Craig Penrice was the batting hero with 22 runs and Chris McBride was almost the bowling match-winner with his 5 overs of leg-breaks.
