Porters Biggest Benefactors
There was just one set of fixtures last weekend in the Manx Petroleum sponsored Outdoor Winter League Bowling Club from which Erin Porters emerged as the biggest benefactors and moved up one position in the standings.
The afternoon began with the Porters falling just one point short of a full house when they overcame Castletown Cannons, the team just one place above them. ‘Christmas had come early’, said their captain.
A clash between Parkers and third placed Louie’s Angels ended with the closest of winning margins in favour of the Angels who continue to chase the leading duo above them.
Cannons and Parkers then fought out a 70 points apiece encounter, the third draw on points in three weekends; while the Porters pushed their opponents Louie’s Angels all the way taking three games, but losing the all important points outcome.
Two round robins took place either side of the league fixtures; firstly the midweek session was hampered by the weather once again; however a gang of 19 were split into two groups of doubles and triples. Jo Smith, Ken Karran and Dee Lewis won their section, with the pairing of Trish Bull and Alec Taylor taking theirs.
A good entry of 33 attended the Sunday afternoon event, with two sets of triples being won by Alan Moore, Louis Callister and Jack Lee, along with Stefan Kelly, Derek Allen and Margaret Tasker.
