Ladies’ over 60’s Tuesday 21 April
The sun shone for the matches in the Trend sponsored ladies’ over 60’s league on Tuesday 21 April, adding to the enjoyment of the competition. Only two of the matches were drawn on games. Noble’s were level with Castletown, but came close to a 4-2 lead as Sylvia Kennaugh lost out 20-21 to Sue Peach and had a clear win on points. Unfortunately Douglas were a player short and did well to win three games although they ended with a points deficit. Top scorers of the day were Onchan A at Mooragh Park having a 4-2 advantage on games with Hazel Hughes and Maureen Payne winning to single figures. The two winners for the home side were Maureen Wright and Mary Kinrade. Mavis Franks prevented a white-wash for Port Erin as she won her game against Port St Mary, Jacqui Elliott also did well to reach 19 against Wendy Kennaugh but it was not enough to prevent Port St Mary recording the second highest score of the morning. Marown entertained Breagle and had a comfortable 4-2 win with Shirley Whelan and Mary Alderson winning to single figures, and it was a similar tale at Port St Mary B for whom Edwina Reid and Sandi Lowe won to single figures. Peel Sunset travelled to Onchan B where they won four games, three of them to single figures, but Wendy McDowell and Lesley Nicholl, who also won to single figures, fought back for the home side.
