Ladies’ League Friday 25 July

Things are getting tense at the top of the table with the two main contenders both recording scores in the 180’s. Shirley Whelan was Marown’s only winner against Port St Mary, although Lil Smith came close reaching 19 against Win Collister, the visitors winning eight games, four of them to single figures. Ballaugh won three tight games against Mooragh park, Brenda Bowyer and Christine Macdonald both won to 19 against Ellie Cowell and Jean Radcliffe respectively while Jenny Maddrell was taken all the way by Rosemary Quirk before coming through 21-20. Douglas had a tough time on their travels south, Castletown winning seven games, four of them to single figures, although the visitors did have two winners in Kay McKiernan and Wendy Cowin. It was a good night for Port Erin, assisted by Onchan being a player short, winning 7-2 on games with Voirrey Curphey and Kay Primrose-Smith both winning to single figures. Lynda Clarke and Viv Rush were the two winners for Onchan. Noble’s Mixed had a comfortable win at Purt le Moirrey, Tracey Moore and Amanda Lawler being the two winners for the home side, while things were much closer at Peel where Sunset lost 4-5 on games to South Ramsey and by a margin of just 9 points.
