Ladies’ over 60’s Tuesday 15 July
The closest match in the Trend sponsored over 60’s ladies’ league on Tuesday was at Villa where it ended level on games. A win to single figures by Muriel Cain gave the home side the advantage on points in a high-scoring encounter. There were no maximums recorded but Both Port St Mary A and Noble’s Mixed both dropped just 5 points. Port St Mary A won five games, four of them to single figures, against Port Erin, with Steph Swift being the lone winner for the visitors. Marown took two games off Noble’s Mixed, courtesy of Marcia Pearson and Shirley Whelan who edged out Sylvia Kennaugh 21-20, while Pat Robertson and Lin Ruscoe won their games to single figures. Ballaugh won 4-2 against Onchan B, although Dee Lewis nearly levelled the score on games reaching 20 against Mary Simmonds. Wins to single figures by Ann Gale and Brenda Bowyer gave the home side a comfortable win on points. It was a similar story at Mooragh Park where Maureen Payne and Lilian Slinger had single figure wins and Mary Moffatt and Joyce Kelly won their games for Peel Sunset. Once again Onchan A were unfortunately a player short to make the match all square on games. The five games played were closely contested with all of them going to double figures, giving both teams respectable totals.
