Ottery St Mary ladies enjoy success at Madeira

The weather has been a big problem for Ottery St Mary bowlers this past week, writes Michael Smith.

Both friendly matches were cancelled, but the men’s Over-60s A team did manage to get through a dozen ends in their home meeting with Tiverton BC A before rain arrived to bring proceedings to a premature end.

Sadly the team were losing on both rinks at the time a halt was called and so they bank no points from the encounter.

The B team managed to complete their match at Okehampton, but lost on both rinks, though they are still just above the drop zone with two matches to play.

The only other match to be played this week was the ladies LOFTL match at Madeira where they had a convincing win on both rinks, Joan Dalton. Joan Saunders and skip Gail Hawke winning 30-10.
