As promised, a quick report on the rest of the first week’s matches of the 2018/2019 Indoor Bowling League season.
The first night of the Indoor Bowls Premier Team League saw a good start for TBC and Villans with TBC taking a 6-0 win over Saltire and Villans also taking a 6-0 win from the Birdies. In the other match played that night, we saw highly-tipped Cheesemakers held to a 3-3 draw by the League’s newcomers DNA.
First Division Team
In the First Division Teams, we saw Spinners beat Smugglers 5-1 and Odd Balls took a 4-2 victory over Maxums. While there was a great start to the season for new team Cowley Cannonballs as they beat Okay 4-2. In the final match of the night CAOS lost 4-2 to Girl Power.
Second Division Pairs
The final league of the week was the Second Division Pairs and in this we saw the Sensibles beat Cowley Cannonballs 4-0 and Sunset Rollers making my tip to win this competition look questionable as they beat Reckless Rollers 4-0. Smooth Matters got a walkover as their opponents were unable to field a team on the night and in the final match Colonicles beat Woodbourne Reds 3-1.
I know it is very early to talk about league positions, but a quick look at the Indoor Bowls League Table after the first week shows Young Guns topping the Premier Pairs while the Premier League is led by TBC. The First Division Pairs are led by Kencoe and the First Division Teams are led by Spinners. The leaders in the Second Division Pairs courtesy of a walkover in their first match are Smooth Matters while finally the very popular Tuesday Morning League is topped by Onchan Royals.
