Ladies’ over 60’s Tuesday 16 May

The conditions were anything but clement in the Trend sponsored ladies’ over 60’s league on Tuesday 16 May. Peel Sunset travelled North where the gale force winds and “different” green led to some very interesting bowling. The westerners were up to the task, winning all six games, although Ann Chapman almost spoiled the party, reaching 20 against Lynda Wilson. Philippa Taylor denied Port St Mary A a full house against Marown, while it was Villa’s Kay McKiernan who was the fly in the ointment for Castletown. The two winners for Breagle at Nobles were Sylvia Maddrell, to single figures, and Gwen Tuck who edged out Viv Cook 21-19. Kay Primrose-Smith almost levelled the games score, reaching 20 against Sylvia Kennaugh. Ballaugh had a successful journey to Douglas winning 4-2 on games, the two winners for the home side were Sue Caley and Jan Osborne who pipped Ann Gale 21-19.Port St Mary B demonstrated the advantage of fighting for every point, as despite losing 2-4 on games they won the match by two points. Their winners were Chris Holland and Roma Ware, while Dot Mylchreest lost out 20-21 to Jean Quine.
