Ben Kelly and Ashley Gardner were the top scorers in this latest victory.

Port St Mary have put in a number of notable performances in the Winter Indoor League so far this season and Douglas were the victims this time around.

Their strength in depth - 16 shooters in total - meant PSM won all three divisional matches with one uncontested.

Derek Kermode matched his daughter Gemma's 97 for Laxey, meanwhile, so those bragging rights will have to keep for another week!

Sharon Drysdale was top gun for the visitors with a near-perfect 99 in the Division One match with Matthew Roosen, released from his stint preparing for computer duties at the Easter Shoot, chipped in with a tidy 98.

Kirk Michael get the drop on Laxey


Kirk Michael notched a surprising win over Laxey with this victory,  their third of the league campaign. Both teams were depleted, with Laxey missing John Wood while Beth and Alisha Gale were unavailable for the home side. Perryn Watson maintained her recent run of good form with a 98 while Commonwealth Games-bound Gemma Kermode was Laxey's top scorer with 97.

Kirk Michael put in some solid scores with Alex Trafford and Suzanne McKnight on 97 while Kevin Quinn continued his recovery from illness with a solid 95. Andrew Jessop notched a 96 and Bridget Kneale will have been pleased with her useful 91 in the final detail of the night.

Castletown put Sandsiders to the sword


Andy Traynor was the top scorer for Sandsiders with a 99 but it was all a bit "Rorke's Drift" for the home side as Castletown rocked up at the Sinclair Range with 15 shooters and took the points by a big margin.

Nigel Christian hit a 98 to lead the way for the visitors.

More joy for Castletown as they were the winners of the recent Knock-Out Cup held at Port St Mary's range. Just three teams took part, though, which made it a somewhat disappointing spectacle.
