Port St Mary following their sit out last week had an excellent away performance at Ballaugh keeping the pressure on at the top.  Port St Mary won 88-185 (1-8) with Jayne Kneen, Ann Maddrell, Wendy Kennuagh, Chris Price and Margaret Tasker winning to single figures.  Ballaugh avoided a whitewash with Diane White beating Elaine Hawkings 21-17.

Purt Le Morriey produced a brilliant home performance against Onchan to win 185-123 (8-1).  Chris Holland, Edwina Reid and Pauline Worrall all won to single figures.  Dee Lewis was Onchan’s sole winner 21-17 against Mavis Franks.

Port Erin and Douglas finished 5-4 on games but the home side managed to win two matches to single figures thanks to Jean Thackrah and Phil Dobson allowing them to win the match by 21 chalks 159-138 (5-4)

Mooragh Park slipped to a 20 point defeat at home to Peel Sunset.  Mary Moffatt, Shirley Corrin, Heather Horsburgh, Cath Parker and Val Alwood were all on target for Peel with Janet Monk, Caroline Parker, Ellie Cowell and Anne Kean winning for Mooragh.  The final score 134-154 (4-5)

After game round 16 Castletown sit top of the pile holding a slender four chalk lead over South Ramsey.  Nobles lie in third 115 chalks from the top.  Port St Mary have played a game less than the three ahead of them and as a result sit fourth.  With a deficit of only 142 chalks they will look to chip into that lead and leapfrog when they catch up on games.

There is a new leader at the top of the individual merit with Castletown’s Amanda Lawler leading the way ahead of Jenny Moore and Elaine Moore (both South Ramsey).
