MOONFLEET B 47 DORCHESTER C 34
Moonfleet B entertained Dorchester C in this latest Ladies County League fixture. Mary Corben, Jennifer Browne, Sue Trott and skip Sue Paull took a while to get going against the Dorchester rink with skip K Johns and were 6 – 11 down by end seven. The visitors then took control and, keeping the Moonfleet ladies out, had built up a convincing 23 – 6 lead by end fourteen. The Fleet foursome did manage to get in again and won four out of the remaining seven ends, but the lead was too great and the visitors ended with an impressive 29 – 11 victory.
On the other rink Julie Watts, Pam Hayward, Judy Why and skip Ruth Neary moved into an early lead against the visitors with skip H Ryan. By end seven the hosts were 11 – 2 ahead and they proceeded to pile on the pressure opening up a whopping 23 – 2 lead by end twelve. There was little the Dorchester quartet could do as the Moonfleet rink went from strength to strength allowing the visitors only two more winning ends as they stormed to the finish with a massive 36 – 5 win and a secure overall 47 – 34 total.
