Seven Up secure second spot

The Outdoor Winter League sponsored by Pronto Plumbing had a full week of fixtures, after the storms disrupted play the previous week.

Wednesday, 23 February saw the Round Robin take place with 20 members taking to the green, split into two groups of doubles. The outstanding winners of the yellow jack group by 13 points was Margie Tasker and Dougie Allan, with runner up going to Ken Karran and Peter Corlett. The second group was a closer run competition with only one point between the winner and second place. Taking victory on 26 points was Brian Colquitt and Alan Phair, with Peter Kennaugh and Sue Gawne came in second with 25.

Saturday, 26 February saw three teams take to the green, WALOB, All But and the Outsiders. WALOB took on All But and secured five wins, which led to Bryan Corner the only winner for All But holding Lyn Bolton to 11 points. Tony Hart had the closest scoring game in which he held Willie Corkill to 20. 

All But then took on the Outsiders and again won one of the games, Celia Joughin this time holding Steve Cook to 19, the other close game was when Jenny Moore held Brian Aspden to 20. Unfortunately for All But they were a player short in both games.

WALOB then took on the Outsiders and each team secured three wins. The doubles pairing for WALOB Sid Bolton and Toby Hart kept James Teare and Kevin Firth to 20 and Kim Hargraves kept Jenny Moore to 18. The closest scoring game with the Outsiders taking the game was when Frank Watson kept Lyn Bolton to 18.

WALOB 7 (116), All But 1 (82); All But 1 (87), Outsiders 7 (124); Outsiders 5 (117), WALOB 3 (103).

Sunday, 27 February again had three teams take to the green Mooragh Lakers, Castletown Corkers and Seven Up. The Lakers took on the Corkers and they won every game giving them the maximum score of 126 for the match. The Corkers then took on Seven Up and unfortunately again did not manage a win, meaning Seven Up got the maximum score available. 

Seven Up then took on the Lakers and secured four wins. The closest games were both wins for Seven Up with Dougie Allan keeping Janet Monk to 17, and Kevin Quirk likewise keeping Walter McCarthy to 17.

Mooragh Lakers 8 (126), Castletown Corkers 0 (74); Castletown Corkers 0 (61), Seven Up 8 (126);  Seven Up 6 (112), Mooragh Lakers 2 (92).
