In this weeks Trend sponsored Ladies Over 60s League Tuesday saw three matches end as whitewashes. Port St Mary bounced back from their loss to Marown last week with an emphatic 126-45 (6-0) victory over Breagle who were a player short. Margaret Tasker and Wyn Collister both won to single figures.
Marown kept up the pace by picking up their first full house of the season winning away to Mooragh Park B 54-126. Philippa Taylor, Margaret Scarffe and Marcia Pearson winning well for the away side.

The closest game on Tuesday saw Port Erin take on Mooragh Park A. Home players Carol Kaye, Jenny Cain won 21-7 and 21-6 respectively and despite Janet Monk winning for the away team 21-4 the home side held on to win 99-80 (4-2)
Nobles sit out from Thursdays matches and welcomed Onchan to Nobles Park. Slyvia Kennuagh, Viv Cook and Flo Price all won to single figures for the home side to give them a comfortable 107-81 (4-2) victory. Onchan players Maureen Payne won 21-3 and Dee Lewis held on to beat Josie Harding 21-20.
Thursdays match of the day came between Mooragh Park A and Peel Sunset. Mooragh Park won the match by six chalks 107-101. Both teams won three games each to underline how tight the match was.
Marown won four games in their match against South Ramsey but crucially lost two to single figures making their overall total against South Ramsey well below their league average. They won the match 90-74.
Villa locked horns with fellow club members Douglas. Douglas were two players short and won all the other four games including Moire Turner and Jan Osborne winning to 9 and 6 respectively. Despite the result in the four games the 42 chalks given away was too much to claw back and Villa won the match 87-84.
Onchan hosted Port St Mary A with the visitors winning 5-1 on games. Maureen Payne won 21-2 against Wyn Collister to prevent a full house and Port St Mary won the match 95-107.
To round up the remaining matches Mooragh Park B picked up their second win of the season away to Breagle 100-107 (4-2). Ballaugh lost at home to Port Erin 77-114 (2-4) and Port St Mary B were pipped by nine chalks losing to Castletown 94-103 (3-3)
Looking at the league table after round 5 it is starting to take shape. As there is an odd number of teams I am looking at the average score of each team and Port St Mary lead the way averaging 115 followed by Nobles 111 and Marown 109. Next week the current top two face each other at Port St Mary.
