Ladies’ league Friday 21 August

The final matches in the C Tarleton Hodgson and Son Ltd sponsored ladies’ league took place on Friday 21 August. Port St Mary celebrated winning the league by producing a maximum against Port Erin, while South Ramsey did enough to cement second place, winning 6-3 against Purt le Moirrey whose three winners were Tracy Moore, Chris Price and Linda Dawson. A 7-2 win over Onchan, whose two winners were Libby Andrade and Marilyn Ellison, left Castletown just 40 points below South Ramsey but well clear of fourth placed Nobles, who lost out 5-4 to Mooragh Park on the night. Joyce Ogden came close to reversing the games score reaching 20 against Rosemary Quirk. Ballaugh finished the season on a high at Douglas, winning 6-3, with all 9 players scoring 16 or over and dropping just 11 points. Despite ending near the bottom of the table Peel Sunset rallied in their last match with Joyce Kelly and Heather Horsburgh winning to single figures while Cath Parker came through 21-19 after a tough battle with Lil Smith.

Congratulations go to Elaine Moore who won the league merit. She was closely followed by her South Ramsey colleague Lyn Bolton with Val Macfarlane of Port St Mary in third place.
