Port St Mary power past IoMSC Sandsiders

Wed, 08 Feb 2017

Port simply brushed IoMSC Sandsiders aside with an impressive display and three  near-perfect 99s.

The result keeps their championship drive going at full tilt. Young Matthew Roosen scored a defiant 99 too for the visitors but he could not stop them sliding to a big margin of defeat as Derek Kermode, Paul Clague and Eddie Maddrell turned the screw.

Port in fact have another match to come with the rearranged match against Laxey coming up soon.

There were big wins in Divisions 2 and 3 for Port St Mary too.


IoMSC Douglas see off Castletown


An incredibly consistent performance from Douglas, with five 98s in Division 1, saw them edge out the visitors by just two points. Nick Brown was one of the homesters who enjoyed a fine bout of form and showed the youngsters a thing or two.

Richard Arthur top scored for his side but it was not enough to take the points.

Castletown had an easier ride in the other matches, though, as they won divisions 2 and 3 pretty convincingly with their larger numbers.



Laxey lose out to solid Sulby


Over at Laxey Glen, Sulby came to visit and they walked off with the points - but only just. In yet another close Division 1 fixture this season, a mere two points separated the sides. There were a couple of good 97s, from Andrew Jessop and Steven Curphey for Laxey but Sulby more than matched that with Andy Mitchell their top scorer on 98.
