Essie Quayle Singles

The weather was not kind to the 31 ladies who gathered at Peel on Saturday to compete for the Essie Quayle Cup with fairly heavy rain during the later stages. The green was running well and there were some very close games during the afternoon.

Quarter-finals: Philippa Taylor 21, Mary Alderson 16; Chris Price 21, Janet Monk 20; Heather Horsburgh 21, Joyce Kelly 20; Lyn Bolton 21, Lin Ruscoe 16.

Semi-finals; Philippa Taylor 21, Chris Price 16; Lyn Bolton 21, Heather Horsburgh 10.

Early exchanges in the final brought the score level at 10-10 before Philippa had the better of the next few ends to take a lead 16-13 at which point Lyn pulled back to 16-17.Two singles and a 2 from Philippa brought her through to win 21-16 in an excellent game.

The presentation was made by the winner of the “Wet T-shirt” competition, a water-logged Heather Horsburgh who thanked all who entered and those who had stayed to the conclusion of the competition.
