Ladies’ League Friday 15 August

A draw on points is a rare occurrence in the C Tarleton Hodgson and Son Ltd sponsored ladies’ league but it happened in two matches on the penultimate night of the 2014 season. Onchan with 5 wins and a 20 by Libby Andrade against Ellie Faragher would appear to be in the box seat against Ballaugh, however with all their players reaching double figures together with Christine Macdonald and Ann Gale both winning to single figures the two teams finished all square on points. At Castletown Port St Mary won 5 games while the home side had 4 wins and a 20 by Anne Oates against Tricia Bull, and with each team having a good win to single figures it was less surprising that this game also ended lavel on points. South Ramsey were top scorers of the night after a convincing 7-2 win over Douglas, while it was closer at Marown where despite winning 5-4 on games the home side ended 8 points behind Noble’s Mixed. Purt le Moirrey had a one game advantage over Port Erin but with three of their players winning to single figures they had a comfortable advantage on points. There were some close games at Peel Sunset where Mooragh Park won 5-4 on games. Two of the matches went all the way with Rosemary Quirk coming through 21-20 against Connie Pettegrew, while in the last game on the green Joyce Kelly just pipped Lilian Slinger by the same score.
