Moonfleet A 38 Moonfleet B 33
Moonfleet Ladies two teams came head to head in the second round of the Mason Trophy national competition. On one rink the Moonfleet A team of Gill Lock, Helen Monelle, Margaret Crawford and skip Anne Chislett took early control against the B team of Chris Rod, Di Edwards, Jill Gwilliam and skip Chris Thompson and by end ten were 15 – 3 ahead. The second half of the game saw the A quartet continue to dominate and, although the Thompson foursome moved up a gear over the final five ends, it was not enough to stop the Chislett rink finishing with a 19 – 10 victory.
On the other rink Moonfleet A with Margaret Hooper, Mairi Mathie, Linda Bryson and skip Kath Desmond had a close tussle against Monique Gandy, Madge Churches, Jennie Brown and skip Trixie Dempsey. After seven ends, the B team were only one shot behind at 7 – 8, but by end thirteen they had edged ahead 13 – 12. This game of cat and mouse continued for the remainder of the match until, with a three shot haul on the very last end, the Dempsey quartet stole the game 18 – 14. Sadly there could only be one overall winner and with a difference of only 5 shots the Moonfleet A ladies will go forward to face Yeovil in the next round after Christmas.
