MId Lancs Week O

Division 1 leaders, David Lloyd A won on home turf this week when they hosted Carlton A. In the 18-0 whitewash over their opponents, Mark Tuttle was statistically best on the evening to keep the runaway train rolling towards their 3rd title. Hawks A continued with this seasons form & beat David Lloyd B 12-6 at home to keep them in 2nd spot. Nick & Rachel Hodgson won 5 games each at 3rd pairing to do most of the damage; but a vital bonus point for DLB who are in the drop zone. MGS B were on the end of a 5-13 defeat by St. Andrews A; failing to grab a vital bonus point in the final game of the match. After being 13-6 up, Tom Lowe & Cheryl Parry lost the game 13-15 to Steve Taylor & Karolyn Hustler…. Tom told me “he was gutted”! Andy’s are steadily catching up to 2nd placed Hawks A; now just 2 points behind with 2 matches in hand. For MGS B, they are 2 pts ahead with 4 matches to play; 2 against the top two teams & 2 are against their relegation rivals! (St. B & DLB) St. Andrews B were beaten 1-17 at home by MGS A to leave them firmly rooted at the foot. Continue reading “MId Lancs Week O”

Mid Lancs Week N

In division 1 this week, MGS A had an almighty clash with 2nd placed hawks A. The match seemed to be going in MGS’s favour early doors, but the Julian Priestly went over on his ankle in the 2nd Men’s which then seemed to turn the match into Hawks’ favour. The visitors then ploughed ahead in the mixed & eventually won the match 7-11. The result keeps Hawks in a strong 2nd place; 3 pts ahead of Andy’s, but they do have a couple of games in hand over them. Julie Bates won 5 games.

St Andrews E v Clayton Crusaders C – 30th Jan 2014

Team: Jane, Anne, Zoe, Alex, Ben, Richard
Result: Lost 11-7

A tough match as expected against the dominant team in division 5. An encouraging start saw our ladies win all their levels this time round plus a close fight for Ben and Alex to leave it level pegging after event 4. Our number 1 mixed pair then took both games (and the lead) fairly comfortably before Crusaders fought back to take the next 6 games (including a close 15-11 against Ben & Anne) to seal victory. The final event was split 15-11 each way but points were already decided and we came away with 1 more than last time! Top scorer (again!) was Zoe with 5 (again!) closely followed by Jane with 4 (more than last time!) Next week – Preston College at “ours” !!

St Andrews “E” v Whittle “C” – 23rd Jan 2014

Team: Anne, Zoe, Laura, Graham, Ben, Richard
Result: Won 11-7

Another win for the “E” team away at Whittle and whilst we didn’t manage the full 4 points for the return match, the opposition were definitely fielding a stronger team this time. We agreed to play slightly out of order starting with Graham and Anne splitting the first event but by the end of the levels we were leading 7-3. Zoe and Richard extended the lead and it was Ben and Laura who took our 10th game to secure a victory. Whittle were still fighting for points though and stole the next 3 games before we split the last event, finishing at quarter to midnight! Thanks to Ben for trecking all over Lancashire to help us and also a special guest appearance from Laura who shared top scoring (5) with Richard & Zoe. Next Thursday – it’s league leaders at home !!!
