- This week Dromore Ladies enjoyed reasonable weather for their home league fixture against near neighbours Lagan Valley.

Although the weather was sunny the cool breeze blowing across the green made it difficult to find line and length in the early stages.

Nevertheless, both Dromore rinks settled to their task and quickly established a comfortable lead which the y never relinquished.

At the finish the locals had again secured a maximum five league points by virtue of two winning rinks and a 22 shot victory.

RINK 1: A McGarrity, K Paylor, M Dawson, L Aiken.

Rink 2: L Gribben, M Ward, J Malcolmson, C Ogle..
