Tue, 03 Jan 2017


Twenty aspiring sharpshooters descended on the range at St John's last Friday (16th)

Going by the name of the Andreas Rogues, the motley crew of tradesmen from Andreas amongst other places enjoyed a festive shoot as part of the Corporate League set-up.

Eagle-Eyed Eddie puts Port St Mary in the driving seat with nail-biting win against Sulby

 

It was mighty close at Sulby but Eddie Maddrell's 100 made the difference as Port St Mary won by a single point. Richard Faragher came close to the ton as well with 99 but on a night of very sound shooting from everyone in the Division 1 match it was the PSM bandwagon which rolled on.

Ben Kelly continued his recent good form with 98 while the home side notched another 98 with Will Quayle's help.

In Division 2 and 3 PSM's strength in numbers - 15 shooters turned out once again - meant Sulby were pushed aside.

Kermode's ton is not quite enough to stop IOMSC Sandsiders

 

Commonwealth Games hopeful Gemma Kermode hit the magic 100 for Laxey to keep her coach Harry Creevy happy - just for once - but it was IOMSC Sandsiders who had the last laugh as they edged their visitors out by two points at their adopted home of the range at St John's.

A solid 98 from Matthew Roosen, supported by 97s from Bill Jones and Andy Traynor, made the difference.

The other match of the night was won by Sandsiders too as it was uncontested.

IOMSC Douglas out of sight of Kirk Michael

 

It was comedy night at Kirk Michael as IOMSC Douglas powered to an easy win on this, the final match night before the festive break kicks in.

The fact that Perryn Watson shot her card wearing two sets of spectacles by mistake and Sharon Drysdale turned up with a leprechaun hat on almost took the shine off of Sam Jones's excellent 99 and Tracey Skelton's 98.

Alex Trafford was top gun for the home side with 98 using a box of borrowed Lapua Centre-X ammunition 'donated to him' for Christmas.

James Spencer also deserves credit for coping with the pressure in just his second-ever league match.
