Ladies’ over 60’s Tuesday 25 April

The weather was not kind on the morning of 25 April in the Trend sponsored over 60’s ladies’ league. At Peel the match coincided with the period of high tide, so the cold and strong winds were accompanied by the sea spray coming over.

For Breagle Gwen Tuck and Sylvia Maddrell mastered the conditions to take two games of the home side. Onchan recorded a maximum at Moorage Park, where just two of the home side managed to get into double figures, while at Douglas Jan Osborne spoiled the party for Port St Mary A, denying them a full house. Sue Caley almost added a second game for the home side, reaching 20 against Kath Looney.

Port Erin had a good win against Castletown, winning four games. All the Castletown players reaching double figures kept the final points difference to single figures. It was another close affair when Port St Mary B played host to Villa, the match ending level on games with the visitors finishing just ahead on points. Ballaugh and Nobles also tied on games, but with the home side winning two games to single figures compared to their opponent’s one they ended with a comfortable points advantage.
