Ladies’ league Friday 8 July

It was ironic that South Ramsey and Castletown should meet again in the C Tarleton Hodgson ladies’ league the evening after the Jean Kelly final, where Castletown had won by a narrow margin. In this game the visitors had the better of the match on games, 6-3, but the home side claimed victory by just one point. The game between Purt le Moirrey and Port Erin was another which showed the advantage of fighting for every point, as despite the visitors winning 6-3 the home side taking their three games to single figures meant Purt le Moirrey ended with a 12 point advantage. Ballaugh had a successful visit to Onchan, their 6-3 win being converted to a good win on points, while the other three winning teams passed the 180 point mark. Wins to single figures by Joyce Kelly and Lynda Wilson gave Peel Sunset the advantage at Douglas where the rest of the games were very close, two games going all the way, Cath Parker winning one and Wendy Cowin the other. Rosie Winckle was the lone winner for Marown against Port St Mary, who won 4 games to single figures, while top scorers of the night were Nobles against Mooragh Park who had two winners in Maureen Wright and Rosemary Quirk.
