Southampton (Old) Bowling Green Contributor


On a damp and windy afternoon the ladies of Old Green netted 3 points with a good win over Meon Valley


Jan Body, Val Morris & Jeni Winney could have been forgiven for thinking they were in contention for a win at 7 ends being 9-4 up, but their opponents dug in and with some "luck of the green" and aggressive bowling, left our ladies only able to pick up a further 2 shots in the game, ending in an 11-18 defeat.


Next door, Choi-Lin Sanders, Pam Crompton and Barbara Sparling were having a more successful game, albeit a fairly frustrating one with only single shots and occasional pairs to supplement the score.   However their victory of 20-7 served to offset the defeat on the other rink and overall the ladies won 31 shots to 25 and by 3 points to 1.  


This puts them second in the league on shot difference after four games with their next opponents, Pirrie Park, in third.
