Big scores fail to bring victory

Joseph Bulmer

THERE were three 80-plus scorers in Ilfracombe Men’s Skittles League this week, but only one of them finished up on the winning side.

He was John Tubb, who scored 82 to inspire Golden Balls to victory away to neighbours Shipwreckers.

Paul Hewitt went one better with 83 for Who Spares Wins and Jason Troughton floored 80 for Waverley Wanderers, but both still ended up on the losing sides.

Other high scoreres this week included Paul Gammon with 73 for Cliffhangers and M Hannam with 72 for Vilma’s Vanderboys.
