Chief Sector Marshal busy on Duty for Marown derby

Wednesday 31st May saw the Ladies Open age League played. The TT practice sessions meant that the Marown A team Captain Helen Withers was busy on Duty and unable to play at the marown derby. 

This left the A team bringing in the subs and it was a lovely evening, except for the biting midges. 

Debbie Leece, Clare Cooper and Lyn Bolton for the A team all won by single figures, as did Elaine Dewhurst for the B team. The rest of the games were all close and the B team weren’t going to let them have an easy win. Final score Marown B 119 v Marown A 177 (1-8).

Port St Mary 160 hosted Castletown B 132 (5-4) Mother and Daughter Joy Stevens and Angela Quayle (Castletown B) both had close 21-19 wins. But with Katy Williams, Nicola Cain and Tricia Bull (PSM) all winning by single figures, it was enough to give the Port St Mary ladies the overall match win.

Peel Sunset had the difficult journey to Ballaugh with the roads closed around the TT course. Most of the games were very close and could have gone either way. Julie Reilly and Cath Harvey (Ballaugh) both had good wins of 21-6 and 21-4. With a final match result Ballaugh 177 v 137 Peel Sunset (6-3).

Castletown A played their usual top form at home against Port Erin. Jean Thackrah was the only Port Erin winner. The Castletown team kept all the opponents scores low enough for them to win the match 184 v 101 (8-1).

Nobles just had to cross the town to defeat Douglas. The newly formed Nobles team are certainly one to watch out for in the second half of the fixtures. They played the Villa green well and were only 9 points off a full house. Douglas 124 v 180 Nobles (3-6).

The northern teams saw Mooragh Park 113 v 171 South Ramsey (2-7). Victoria Johnson had a close encounter with Gillian Morgan taking the 21-20 win for the park side. Whilst Elaine Moore also had a battle with Madison McCullen winning 21-19 for the South side. Janet Monk took the second win for Mooragh Park 21-4. The remaining South players all won with good wins leaving them as match winners and remaining a close second on the League Table. 

The Ladies Over 60’s games are back on Thursday 15th June and the next set of Open age League games are due to commence on Friday 16th June.
