Magee & Co Castletown/Abbey B 13  Celton Fencibles C 4


Fencibles C had it all to do on Tuesday to avoid relegation when they met already league winners  Castletown/Abbey B for their final game of the season. In the end however there were no big surprises as Castletown/Abbey maintained their unbeaten record holding Fencibles to a 13–4 victory. Particularly impressive was the performance of Castletown's last minute stand-in, 13 year old Pippa Slater who, partnered with Nick Thornley, was able to take a game against Fencibles' Paul Flanders and Sarah Buss.  NT

RL360 Rushen C 2    CuPlas St Ninians C 14

The lowest score achieved by Rushen in their first games of each set was 18. Five out of seven sets lost by Rushen could have easily swung the other way, but for a few points.

Mixed League 6


Kella Farms Sulby  11    Nationwide Michael B 7


Kella Farms Sulby won League 6 this week, narrowly defeating Kirk Michael with an overall score of 11-7 in their last match of the season. The teams were in pole position with 64 and 63 points respectively and after drawing 10-all at Kirk Michael earlier in the season both sides knew it would be a tense close night. The first game between second mens didn't disappoint, going to 23/21, with Sulby carrying on strongly taking the first three matches 2-0. In the first women’s game Kirk Michael's Jo Moore and Jess Corlett scored the first points for their team with a decisive 21/5 win. While Sulby's Elly Livesey and Sarah Clarke rallied strongly for the second game it wasn't quite enough with Kirk Michael taking their second game 25/23. The league title was decided at fourth mixed between Ian Collister and Joan Hughes of Sulby against Matthew Parslow and Rosie Hesketh.  Kirk Michael had to win the night by two games or more to take the league title and they were deprived the chance to do this when Collister and Hughes won 21/16 21/18.
