SKITTLES: Bristols hold firm for title
2:00pm Saturday 1st March 2014 in Sport
NITWITS took the Burnham, Highbridge & District Ladies’ Skittles League Premier Division runners-up place on their home alley beating the George Hotel by 15 pins playing the other home team Cannonballs who have had a miserable season and will be demoted to Division 1 along with Berrow Breezers who lost to Pin Ups.
Maybee’s can only reflect on what might have been as they were one point above Nitwits but failed to make the grade against visitors Hotshots who won by five.
Eight Belles saved their best for the last match as they beat home team Watchfield Belles by nearly 80.
Bristols kept their nerve for their final match to take the Division 1 title beating Coopers Boozers by just nine; Boozers will be down in Division 2 next season.
The runners-up spot was yet to be decided between Country Girls and Nightmares who were equal on points; the advantage went to Country Girls playing at home who beat Nightmares by 28.
Wotsits made short work of Wayward Wanderers at Crossways Inn, and Young Ones were awarded the points from Old Railway.
A play-off will take place later between Wayward Wanderers and Old Railway to decide the final relegation place.
With the winners and runners-up already decided in Division 2, Victoria Vixens beat Red Devils and Berrow Club B took the match from Pawlett Legion.
Applecatchers beat Burnham Utd at the Ritz Club to finish third.
Teams are reminded that the Pairs Cup starts at 8pm this week.
