Full House Sends Castletown A Top
Castletown A took on Onchan in their catch up game with the opportunity to chase down Nobles who held a 157 chalk advantage.
Castletown has been in formidable form at home averaging 181 in their last four home matches and made light work of Onchan winning 189-80 (9-0).
The result has pushed Castletown 32 points ahead of Nobles with the crunch match between the leading pair due to take place in a couple of weeks. Before that match, Castletown will face their B team where they will be favourites to secure another maximum before a tricky home tie against South Ramsey.
Nobles have two away games against Port Erin and Ballaugh and must look to score big to ensure the gap doesn’t widen too much before the showdown with Castletown.
Port St Mary A won’t give their status of Champions up without a fight and now only sit 67 points behind. With matches coming up against Onchan, Marown and their B team they will push the top teams all the way.
South Ramsey have played an extra game so will sit out in two weeks. Before that an away tie against Mooragh Park followed by the away match against Castletown will give SR their chance to push to finish in the top 3.
Individually Elaine Moore has been in terrific form all season having already won the Over 60s merit. Elaine is top of the night merit, with 439 chalks, having only lost a single game. Second is Jenny Moore (429) and third is Top Lady Winner Rebecca Teare on 416. Rebecca has played a game less but even with this game in hand, Elaine would remain top by two points.
It’s all to play for with only a few weeks left of the season and should be a fantastic battle for the teams and players.
