Creevy hits second century as Laxey get back on track

Fri, 16 Dec 2016

"Two of them were a bit scratchy," growled Harry Creevy as the Commonwealth Games veteran helped get Laxey back to winning ways against Kirk Michael at Laxey Glen with ten bulls.

Some people are never happy!

The 100 score is his second of the Winter League campaign so far this season.

Gemma Kermode and John Wood both scored 98s and Stephen Curphey chipped in with a very handy 97 to erase last week's defeat at Sulby.

Both teams have been struggling for numbers recently and that came to a head for Kirk Michael as they were only able to field five shooters due to illness, work commitments and late call-offs.

The dramatic home victory over Sulby two weeks ago is already consigned to memory as the club gets on with the bread and butter of winning matches - any matches.

It wasn't all bad - Perryn Watson extended her rich vein of form with 98 and Suzanne McKnight had a 95 joined by Alex Trafford on the same score.

IOMSC Douglas see off IOMSC Sandsiders

Douglas were short on firepower for the division 2 match with only three people: Nick Brown on 96, David Humphrey also on 96 and Christian Eaton, with 94, were outgunned by Steve Callus 91, Terry Green 91, Bill Jones 86 and Norman Ormrod on 83 for a victory by 351 to the 286 of IOMSC Douglas. It was a case of any score is better than no score at all.



Close-fought battle as Port St Mary edge out Castletown


In what could be loosely considered a "local derby", Port St Mary got the better of Castletown by 490 points to 486.

In a powerhouse display by the two teams with the most shooters to call upon,  the two clubs fielded no less than 15 and 13 players respectively throughout divisions 1, 2 and 3 so the home side swept the board in all of them. The other sides in the league will be wondering who is going to put the brakes on the Port his season.
