South Ramsey Take Revenge

Early Leaders Nobles sat out from this weeks Ladies night league fixtures as champions Port St Mary would look to close the gap in their match against Marown.

Marown put on a big performance away from home taking four out of the nine games.  In a high scoring match home greener Wendy Kennuagh won 21-20 against Elaine Dewhirst and Marown’s Rosie Winkle beat Chris Price 21-20 showing how close the match was on the night.  Val Macfarlane top scored for the home side beating Shirley Whelan 21-8 and Port St Mary just had the upper edge overall winning the match 171-155 (5-4).

Ballaugh won their first match of the season away against Castletown B.  Ballaugh picked up six games in the match with Gill Dixon winning 21-3.  For the home side Sonya Mercer won her first league game with wins also for Tracy Moore and Barbara Young.  The final score was 140-165 (3-6).

In the tightest match of the night Douglas welcomed Purt Le Moirrey to the Villa.  The match was only separated by three chalks.  A big home win for Paula Garrett 21-4 wasn’t enough as the away side won 5-4 on games with Edwina Reid and Linda Dawson winning to single figures.  The final result was a Purt Le Moirrey win 152-155 (4-5)

A repeat of last weeks Jean Kelly tie saw Mooragh Park once again visit South Ramsey.  Last week Mooragh triumphed knocking South Ramsey out.  This week however South Ramsey prevailed restricting the visitors to under a hundred chalks.  Janet Monk won 21-8 over Lauren Groen to prevent a whitewash in a match that finished 176-96 (8-1) with some strong individual performances from the South Ramsey ladies.

In the final matches Castletown faced Port Erin away at Breagle Glen and came away with a fine 116-170 (2-7) victory.  Onchan hosted Peel Sunset with the away team winning 142-157 (4-5).

Looking ahead Mooragh Park play their first home match of the season following the work to their green and Castletown make the trip up North.  Port St Mary face their toughest away challenge of the season so far as they face last years runners up South Ramsey.  South Ramsey won last seasons tie 162-159 (5-4).  Next weeks encounter should be just as close.
