The penultimate fixture in the Ladies Crown Green Bowling Open Age League held last Friday resulted in all the four top teams recording good wins. 

Castletown A were at home to Marown B and although Marown took three games off Castletown, Castletown’s 167 points win is enough to put them clearly at the top of the table. Second placed Port St Mary visited neighbours Port Erin coming away with a six games to three win with the closest game being between Jacqui Elliot (PE) against Margie Tasker with Jacqui just edging it 21-20. 

Marown A, who were only a point ahead of South Ramsey last week, scored 174 points at home against Castletown B but with South Ramsey getting 180 points at home to Mooragh Park, South now take third place five points ahead of the Crosby Ladies.  With only one fixture left to play, third and fourth places will be decided as South Ramsey are due to play Marown A at home next Friday. Current fifth placed Onchan had a tough game away at Ballaugh winning 5-4 on games and by five points. Louise Tebay and Cath Harvey (Ballaugh) won to single figures as did Jo Smith and Sue Gawne for Onchan. Peel played host to Douglas winning the match by 32 points. Gill Clarke (Peel) and Sue Caley had a tough battle with Gill eventually winning 21-20.  

Tuesday’s Over 60’s results proved interesting. Second placed Port St Mary A scored a maximum away to Mooragh Park B with four of Port’s games being won to single figures. Current leaders Castletown A were home to Marown and although the match finished three games all, Castletown lost by 10 points. Third placed Peel visited South Ramsey coming away with a 4-2 win and by 27 points. Closest game was between Ann Gale and Terri Berry with the latter winning to 20. The home derby between the Onchan Teams resulted in a win for the A ladies by 47 points with five of the six games being won to single figures. With only two fixtures left to play it couldn’t be closer at the top with only 43 points separating the top three teams – all to play for ladies!
