MOORAGH PARK SHINE AT PEEL
In the Ladies Crown Green Bowling Open Age League, Mooragh Park recovered from their defeat last week with a good 7-2 away win at Peel on Friday night. Result was helped by Mooragh’s junior ladies bowling well with Shannon McMullan, Victoria Johnson and Aalish Howarth winning to 8, 16 and 15 respectively with their youngest bowler, Lacey McMullan, losing to 18 against Celia Smith. Closest game was between Louise Horsfall (Peel) and Pat Lenton with the latter winning to 19. Ballaugh also played well away to Castletown B winning by 42 points. Michelle Cubbon, Louise Tebay and Cath Harvey (Ballaugh) all won to single figures, as did Rachel Palmer for Castletown B. Toughest games of the night pitched Pat Rigby, Joy Stephens and Ann Hollingworth (Castletown) against Maria Dinsdale, Christine McDonald and Barbara Graham with Pat winning to 19, Joy to 20 and Barbara to 18.
In the ladies Over 60s league on Tuesday morning, Port St Mary home derby resulted in a full house for the ‘A’ team ladies. Four of the six games were all won to single figures with the closest result being a 21-15 win for Mavis Franks against Chris Holland. Castletown A played host to Onchan A and although the match finished three all on games, Castletown won by 12 points. Peel also had a good home win against Mooragh Park A only dropping five points. Given these results and with both Peel and Onchan A having a game in hand, the title is still up for grabs.
