Nearly half way and three break away

With the Tower Insurance Over 60’s League nearly reaching its half way stage a breakaway group of three teams have opened up a reasonable gap on the chasing bunch. However if it was the Grand National they would have another lap to do so anything can happen, and probably will, look out for Beechers!! Leaders North Ramsey A march on relentlessly firstly beating their B team 8-0 before having a 7-1 home win against Ballaugh, The Castletown’s teams did not do each other any favours by sharing the points at the Crofts, with the A team then visiting Port St Mary B and coming away with a 7-1 win. Port St Mary A also played their B team this week and won comfortably against their understrength team mates. The Port A team then visited Castletown B and became the first team this year to win at the crofts against the B team to hold onto second place on 28 points, 2 behind leaders North Ramsey A, Castletown A come next on 27 points, while just hanging on to 4th place on 23 points are Town B with Marown level on points after good wins against Port Erin and away to Peel A. On 22 points come Douglas A who after beating their B team, sat out Thursdays game. On 21 points are Nobles A who gained four points this week with big wins against their B team and Onchan B, and Onchan A who also beat their B team although it was only 5-3 and then had a whitewash over Nobles B to also get four points this week, South Ramsey are in 9th place and Peel A in 10th place on 20 points at present after finishing runners up and fourth respectively last season. South Ramsey losing at Ballaugh before bouncing back against North Ramsey B, while Peel A were held by their second team before going down to Marown
With Ballaugh in 11th position on 19 points, with only five points separating 4th to 11th there is a lot to play for in the second half of the season, Peel B are next on 17 points after getting a point against their A team they lost out to Port Erin 5-3. Finch Hill are on 15 points, followed by Onchan B on 9 points, which they will be disappointed with after their strong showing last season, Port Erin are also on 9 with Nobles B on 8 points PSM B on 7 points, North Ramsey B on 3 points and Douglas B on 2
