Onchan on Top at Half Way

Onchan A take a ten point lead into the festival break thanks to a 9-1 win away at Nobles A. Tommy Collister was the star of the show for the home side, with a brilliant victory over David Bradford their only win.

Marown A were also in imperious form as they recorded a maximum 10-0 on their travels to Castletown B.

With half the season still to go it will be a massive challenge for anyone to catch the leaders of Isle of Man Bank Division 1, but Marown will relish this challenge and try to answer the gauntlet that has been thrown down to them.

South Ramsey A are also well and truly back in the race as they recorder their own devastating maximum on their travels to the Sunset City against Peel A.

Port St Mary A, who strengthened this year, are back to their best and equal on points with South after a 9-1 win in the local derby over Port Erin. Both Port and South only tail Marown by 3 points and will be hoping to keep pushing and maybe cause an upset by breaking into the top two.

These results leave Castletown B and Peel A routed to the bottom of the table at the half way stage and they will need to improve at the second time of asking if they want to remain in the top flight next term.

Douglas B remain at the top of Division 2 after a hard fought 7-3 win away at Marown B. They take a six point cushion into the break and have clear daylight between them and the chasing pack.

Port St Mary B are best place to challenge the Villa Men and will be very pleased with their work after a 10-0 win over Castletown C keeps them in the hunt.

South Ramsey B are only 3 points further back after they had to scrap for every point to overcome Port St Mary C 7-3 at home.

Onchan C recorded a strong 8-2 win over South Ramsey C to mover 6 points clear at the top of Division 3 and look like the team to beat going into the second set of fixtures.
