Massacre at the Mooragh
The Tower Insurance Over 60’s League has been torn apart by North Ramsey A, firstly they entertained Castletown A at the Mooragh and demolished the town 7 games to 1, to all but finish off the towns title ambitions, With second placed Port St Mary also in Ramsey playing South Ramsey and needing a win to keep up the pressure they were held to a 4-4 draw. North Ramsey A then headed to second place Port St Mary and again came up with the goods in a 5-3 away victory to move them into a five point lead at the top over the two Southside teams 34 points to 29points, and they certainly are odds on to claim their first ever league title. Castletown bounced back from their mauling to hand out the same medicine to Onchan A at the Crofts with an 8-0 whitewash. Castletown B had a good win over Marown by 6 -2 however it was far closer than the score suggests. While Douglas A went to Port Erin and came home with the two points in a 6-2 win. With Castletown B getting a draw on their visit to Peel B, Douglas had another 6-2 win this time at home to Port St Mary B to to edge ahead of Town B both on 26 points, Next up come Marown on 25 as they got back to winning ways by just edging visitors South Ramsey 5-3 on 24 points are Peel A who got 4 points this week with wins over Finch Hill 5-3 and Nobles B 6-2, on 23 come Nobles A and Onchan A.
