Castletown Set Early Pace

After four games in the C Tarleton Hodgson sponsored ladies’ league, Castletown are leading the way followed by South Ramsey and Port St Mary. They were top scorers in the matches played on Friday 21 April, dropping just nine points against Douglas. The two winners for the visitors were Mary Black and Jan Osborne who came through 21-20 against Barbara Young.

The improvement in the Mooragh Park side was shown in their performance at Port St Mary where they won four games with Vicky Lloyd-West nearly making it five as she lost out 21-20 to Katy Williams.

Second placed South Ramsey had a successful trip to Marown, winning 5-4 with three wins to single figures, although there were some close games, with Fiona Kennish reaching 20 against Irene Corlett and Jill Quayle 19 against Philippa Taylor.

Nobles have made a strong start, currently lying in fourth place, and proved too much for Ballaugh winning 6-3, with Viv Cooke reaching 19 and Lin Ruscoe scoring 20 against Alison Millard.

Peel Sunset had a good night at Onchan where they were made to work for their win. The home side had three winners and it was nice to see them with a full side, and spares! Purt le Moirrey could only muster two wins, courtesy of Tracy Moore and Edwina Reid against a rampant Port Erin who won seven games, four of them to single figures.
