IoMSC Douglas are dealt a blow in the Division 1 League title race

Fri, 29 Jan 2016


A rather disappointed IoMSC Douglas team left the Glen Gardens range on Monday evening having been defeated in Division 1 of the IoMRA Winter League. The St Johns based team have been relishing some excellent results over the past few months but the loss at Laxey was the second in as many weeks. Nothing should be taken away from an impressive score from Laxey where 489 x 500 when just eight team members compete in a match, is an excellent result.

Top Score for the home team went to Suzanne Curphey on 99 followed closely by Stephen Curphey and Garry Kneale, both on 98. Bridget Kneale and Harry Creevy made up the five man team both on 97. For the visitors, Mark Osborn and Andy Potter led the way on 97 with Tracey Skelton and juniors, Sam Jones and Christian Eaton all on 96. Consolation wins went to the Douglas outfit in Divisions 2 and 3.

Spirited win for IoMSC Sandsiders in Division 1

            Castletown Rifle Club have been posting excellent wins over the past few weeks but on their Monday evening jaunt to IoMSC Sandsiders at St Johns, their recent winning formula took a back seat. A good Division 1 score of 483 for Sandsiders proved to be enough to take the premier Division win. Leading shot went to Bill Jones on 99 closely followed by Steve Callus on 98 and junior Matthew Roosen hitting 97. A 95 for Andy Traynor and 94 from Graham Wyatt made up the team. Richard Arthur continues to be one of the contenders for the Individual Championship and this week was no exception with him posting a creditable 97 followed by Nigel Christian, Robin McFee and Steve Gardner all on 96 and Lauren Cooper recording 95 making up the team.
