There was great excitement this week when Madeira A played Madeira B in the Bowls Devon Ladies Competition, the Grace Mathews Top Club, writes Jenny Smith.

Having won their previous rounds, the teams met each other in the Section Final. It was a closely fought game in all disciplines and one that Madeira Ladies should be proud of, but in the end Madeira A came out on top by winning three of the five disciplines – singles, pairs and triples with Madeira B winning the two-wood singles and fours.

Madeira A will now meet Tiverton West End in the quarter-final which is to be played at Heavitree on July 27.

Three Madeira teams were in action this week in the Bowls Devon semi-quarter and quarter-finals. On Tuesday Sue Harriott and Liz Smerdon played in the pairs and did well to win against a team from Bideford in the first round, but lost to Natalie Melmore and Sophie Tolchard by 12 shots to 21 in the quarter-finals.

Sue and Liz with Christine Macaulay played in the triples at Topsham and lost by just one shot in the quarter-final to a team from Plymouth City Bus.

In the fours, Jan Roberts, Janine Orchard, Jacky Howle and Liz Healy lost by a single shot to Topsham in the semi-quarter-finals at Plymouth Sir Francis Drake.

Sadly there are no teams from Madeira through to the National Finals at Leamington.

Madeira Ladies played two league games against Crediton this week, but with different results. Two teams of triples played in the NBTL at Crediton and did well to win by 35 shots to 31 overall.

Jean Rainton and her team of Fay Hughes and Jenny Charles won by 19 shots to 13 and Brenda Marks and her team had a narrow loss with 16 shots to 18.

Two rinks came from Crediton on Thursday evening to play in the EDL and this time Crediton won.

It was again a close-run thing with a winning rink for each club, but and overall win for Crediton of 45 shots to 39. Madeira’s winning rink by one shot was skipped by Angela Fish with Jan Roberts, Christine Macaulay and Jean Rainton.
