MOONFLEET A 48 v BRIDPORT A 40
Moonfleet A entertained Bridport A in this last and successful game of the season in the Ladies County League. Gill Lock, Mairi Mathie, Kath Desmond and skip Anne Chislett stormed into an early lead against the Bridport rink with skip M Clapp and, by the eleventh end, the Moonfleet quartet were a massive 23 – 2 shots ahead. The Bridport ladies then began to rally, but only managed to add ten more shots to their total leaving the hosts to claim a superb 30 – 13 victory.
On the other rink, Margaret Hooper, Jennie Brown, Helen Monelle and skip Margaret Crawford had a very different game against the Bridport rink with skip A Legg. After winning the first three ends, the Moonfleet ladies were forced to take a back seat as, time after time, the visitors denied them success. By the half way stage, Bridport had moved into a commanding 19 – 6 lead and they continued to remain in the driving seat taking the score to 27 – 8 by end nineteen. An amazing 7 shot haul followed by another 3 shots on the final end did pull the hosts’ total up and, although they lost 27 – 18, the Moonfleet ladies secured an overall 48 – 40 win and a further six points for the match to add to their final total for the season.
