Ladies League


Jan Body, Lin Mills & Jan Bunker faced a Follands side which was both feisty and accurate.  Dropping a 4 and a 3 in two ends didn't start the match well and indeed the home side only scored on 6 ends (a third of the total number played) in a 10-24 defeat.  At 12 ends, however the Old Green ladies were only 2 shots adrift (10-12) and it looked like they were in the ascendancy, but then Follands got the bit between their teeth and powered away again to a 10-24 scoreline.
Next door, Jeni Winney's team containing Choi-Lin Sanders and Barbara Sparling also looked to be on the end of a battering being 3-10 down at 6 ends.  However, the home side then found a bit of form and scored 16 shots in the next 6 ends to take them to 19-10 up at 12 ends.  Dropping five shots in the next three ends though reminded them that the game was not yet won and pulled away again picking up three singles on the final three ends to win 22-15.  
Sadly it was not enough to win the game but one point was at that stage very acceptable.
