MID-Glos Ladies continue to do well in national competitions.

They won through to the fourth round of the Masons Over-60s double rink and to the third round of the Vivienne four rink.

The Masons is played on a one rink at home, one away basis and in the third round they were up against old rival Westlecot.

Down in Swindon, Audrey Marsden, Ann Leach, Margaret McColl and Pauline Gunn led most of the way in a close game. After five ends they led 4-3 increased to 10-6 by the half way point but by the end 15 the score was 14-14.

With three ends to go MidGlos were up by one, 18-17 but when time was called after 20 ends they trailed 20-18 to Wendy Anderson.

Things were much more decisive at home however. Joan Surman, Maryann Pye, Myra Savage and Margaret Stalley, playing the legendary Doris Woodley, were also 4-3 up at five ends, 9-7 at the half and 14-15 after 15 ends.

By the 18th end they led 21-10 and yet another seven shots in the last three ends to win 28-10.

The Vivienne is a four rink competitons played on a two rinks at home and two away basis and in this tournament, Mid Glos' opponents were Nailsea.

At home Carol Prouse, Georgi Williams, Joice Harrington and Janet White won 19-14 and Betty Boyd, Joan Sterry, Elaine Hopkin and Joy Smith had a convincing 29-18 win.

Although Sandra Bailey, Mary Clark, Ann Beaven and Pat Stiley lost 18-11, Jo Lee, Joyce Nash, Sue Dyer and Wendy Manns won 21-18.

So with a combined score of 80-65 Mid Glos won easily to set up a next round match against Torbay which will have to be played on a neutral green.
