Double For Price
A strong field of 45 ladies made up of local and visiting bowlers for the festival contested the Castletown pre-festival ladies singles on Sunday 2nd September.
Losers in the quarter finals were Tracy Ryan, Pat Edwards, Julie Waters and Angela Gaut.
In the first semi final Chris Price faced Sarah Weaver. Sarah had battled through a tough field of competitors in the earlier rounds beating Tracey Ryan , Lyn Bennett and local Debbie Leece. Chris got of to a flying start moving 13- 6 ahead before Sarah won the jack. A close and high quality game but Chris proved too strong and the game finished 21- 12.
The second semi final was between local Alison Keggen and Sharon Rigden. Sharon had already knocked out home greener Hannah Kermode, Fiona Kennish and Angela Gaut. Alison defeated on her run to the semi’s Sue Peach, Denise Tonks and Julie Waters. Sharon got off to the better start moving 14-7 up after 8 ends. Alison fought back into the game but Sharon showed her quality taking a 21-18 victory.
In the final it was nip-tuck with the scores being level in the early stages of the match before Chris found top gear and moved ahead on some very tricky marks to claim a 21-15 win, her second competition win of the weekend.
Linda Richman presented the prizes to the players and thanks goes to all those who helped run the competition. A big thank you must also go to Castletown Bowling Green Café for their generous sponsorship of the competition.
