Pearls recorded an excellent 10-0 home victory in their South Alicante league match against San Miguel Beagles, but alas, I’m not privy to how the scoring went.
Our other 2 teams in this league faired not too good I’m afraid. Twas a day to forget for Diamonds at La Marina, who could only field 3 rinks due to a player taken ill. Consequently, they not only suffered a heavy defeat, but were also penalised a further 2 points for failing to field a full side. Finally, Rubies 2-8 home defeat at the hands of Vistabella Eagles, had only a solitary winning rink, namely R Lewin, J Moss, T Lale 19-7.
Four days later, there were plenty more smiles on faces of QBC players. In div A, Swallows won 8-2 at San Luis against the Lions, courtesy of these 3 successful trips – C Brazier, M France, Jason P 22-15. G Phillips, M & C Highland 20-16. T Morgan, C Dye, P Morgan 19-15.
Swans home fixture against Emerald Isles Outlaws resulted in a 10-0 whitewash for the hosts. C Bowles, D Gould, K Bowles 26-14. G Kershaw, A Linley, B Armstrong 32-10. A Bowen, B Elliott, T Voisey 29-7. D Benson, P Farrell, A Benson 19-17, were the line-up.
Top of div C are Swifts, who again won convincingly. This little lot contributed to a superb 10-0 victory over at Vistabella – B Turner, S Jakeman, T Lale 19-15. I Everett, V Slater, J Pitt 23-14. J Cleal, A Johnston, P Bradbury 17-16. S Johnston, B & L Miller 17-12.
