Ladies’ night league Friday 23 June
There were only three matches played in the C Tarleton Hodgson sponsored ladies’ league on Friday 23 June, with the South Ramsey green being used for the Super 32 event, members of Nobles wishing to attend the event and the match at the Mooragh being rained off.
Unfortunately Ballaugh were a player short for their journey to Marown and a match which turned out to be a low scoring affair. The eight games played were shared, but with Ann Gale and Pat Mason winning to single figures, Ballaugh ended just eight points adrift despite giving a game away. Port St Mary had the better of their “local derby” against club mates Purt le Moirrey, winning seven of the nine games. The two winners for the “home side” were Brenda Hawkard against Margaret Tasker, 21-17 and Edwina Reid who had the better of Ann Maddrell 21-19.Debra Cooper almost gave them a third game reaching 20 against Wendy Kennaugh. Onchan put up a spirited performance against Castletown, just losing out 4-5 on games – it was unfortunate that four of Castletown’s wins were to single figures, giving them an advantage of 50 points.
