Marown A Pushed All The Way By Peel A
Last week saw two fixtures played for teams in division one of the Ellan Vannin Fuels sponsored league, in game twenty Marown A had a comfortable 8-2 home win over Douglas A, but they weren’t afforded a comfortable passage when they made a trip to the Sunset City on Wednesday evening, they were pushed all the way by Peel A, Marown A took the victory by the two aggregate points, credit must be given to Peel’s Dougie Allan who stepped up to first team duty and defeated John Gelling 21-14.
In game twenty Onchan A had a solid 8-2 home win over Castletown A and repeated the score line on their visit to Ballaugh A in the second fixture, Port St Mary A made the short trip to Port Erin A but didn’t have it all their own way winning 6-4, 139-124 on aggregate. South Ramsey B hosted Peel A in game twenty and although Peel had six winners to the two of the home side the aggregate was tied an 144. Douglas B played a home fixture with North Ramsey A in another closely fought affair, North Ramsey had five winners but lost the aggregate by a single point.
On Friday night South Ramsey A and B met and the 9-1 win was probably what would have been predicted, on the same evening North Ramsey A made up for their disappointment earlier in the week with a 7-3 win over Castletown A.
Marown B would have been pleased with picking up eight points in their away fixture against Port St Mary C , but Onchan B suffered a 7-3 away loss to Nobles B and now trail Marown B by seven points at the top of the table. Port St Mary B had a storming 10-0 win over Douglas C with an aggregate margin of ninety two points. Peel B hosted Finch Hill A and were beaten 6-4, disappointing for Peel B but Finch Hill A are picking up good points as I have mentioned in previous reports.
With Peel C sitting out this week’s fixture it was a chance for Marown c to close the gap and they did their cause no harm by picking up seven points away at Ballaugh B, Finch Hill B versus Ballaugh C was the closest fought league fixture of the week four winners a piece and the aggregate tied on 134.
