The last two quarter-finals of the JMS Veterans shield took place on Thursday 18 August.Mooragh Park visited Marown but were unfortunately unable to replicate their form from Tuesday. With Marown winning four games to single figures the visitors had little chance despite a win from Moira Anderson and a 19 from Maureen Wright against Celia Joughin.
Things were much tighter at Port St Mary A, where the home side won 4 games, with Ann Maddrell winning to single figures, the two winners for Ballaugh being Mary Simmonds and Jenny Maddrell. When the handicaps, based on league positions at the half-way point of the season, kicked in, the visitors went through by just 2 points.
