Another maximum recorded

The weather played havoc with the schedule once more over the weekend in the Manx Petroleum sponsored Outdoor Winter League Bowling Club with Saturday’s fixtures falling foul of the wet conditions.

Things had dried up a little by Sunday afternoon and in a very windy session three of the participating teams managed to improve their averages, one of them recording the season’s eighth maximum scoreline.

Second placed Seven-Up kicked-off taking on a Parkers side who have been improving after a slow start, both of them finishing with fairly low totals, but an eight point margin win to the Sevens.

The two Castletown outfits were also in action and it was Cannons who notched up their second win of the campaign – both of which have come against opponents Corkers.

The session unfortunately didn’t get any better for Corkers as they struggled to just 76 points against Seven-Up who racked up a full house and got their chase for the top back on track.

Parkers also completed their afternoon on a high and with a good total, as they dropped only four points with victory over Cannons, who remain at the foot of the table.

Results for Sunday, November 29: Parkers 101 (2) Seven-Up 109 (4), Corkers 92 (2) Cannons 108 (4), Seven-Up 126 (6) Corkers 76 (0), Cannons 90 (1) Parkers 122 (5).

The games which were postponed will now be played on Saturday, December 19, the day before the Christmas tombola draw, numbers for which are now on sale during club events.

A small but hardy gang of 18 signed in for the midweek round robin, from which Doug Allan, Pauline Worrall and Tricia Bull emerged as victors ahead of Roma Ware, Derek Allen and Bernie McPhee and the trio of Derek Cadamy, Bob Berry and Erwin Gelling.
