Ladies League


Southampton Old Green ladies travelled to Friary in Winchester for their re-arranged match on Tuesday and came away with an impressive win.  At 8 ends Jan Body, Lin Mills and Jan Bunker were 9-1 up and barely let their opposition get back into the game from that point.  Indeed keeping the Friary tally down to singles, our ladies achieved a very creditable  but quite hard  fought 12-7 victory.
Next door Choi-Lin Sanders, Nola Bayley and Barbara Sparling seemed from the score-line to have had a rather easier affair, but the first 12 ends were a see-saw match with our ladies only 9-8 up.  This was more a case of the opposition saving shots though rather than our ladies not adapting to the green. The gaining of 12 shots over four of the remaining 6 ends - including a splendid 6 shots on end 16 - made the score of 21-13 look very comfortable.  
The acquisition of the four match points has consolidated the ladies in 3rd place in the league behind Meon Valley & Pirrie Park.
