Peel A & Onchan A Take Top Spot
As we moved into the third game of the Season on Tuesday 11th April we had four Teams on four points at the Top with these being Peel Sunset A, Castletown A, Onchan B and Onchan A and although it is still ‘early days’ I felt that we may be looking at the winner from these Teams with Port St Mary A and Nobles Park A being the other two who could spoil that.
The Port St Mary A men and the Nobles A lads obviously agreed with my last comment with Port St Mary A beating Ballaugh A 5-3 at Ballaugh and Nobles Park A had a 6-2 home win against Castletown A.
Douglas A lost 5-3 to Onchan A in a close contest at the Villa which saw a great battle with some very good bowls between Stuart Garrett and Mike Thomas with Mike running out the eventual winner by 21-18. This match also saw a close game between Jimmy Sansom of Douglas and Colin Hinds of Onchan with Jimmy just failing with a great comeback attempt and losing 21-19.
Peel Sunset A had a great 8-0 victory over North Ramsey B and the other top of the table men of Onchan B slipped to a 6-2 defeat at Peel Sunset B.
Douglas B went South to Port Erin and returned with a 4-4 draw while Castletown B beat Ballaugh B 5-3 and North Ramsey A beat Nobles Park B 7-1.
Finally Port St Mary B travelled to Marown for a 4-4 draw and South Ramsey beat Peel Sunset C 7-1.
So after the first three games have been played we see two unbeaten Teams at the top as Peel Sunset A and Onchan A both have six points with Nobles A and Castletown B just being one point behind.
