Trophy stays on North Bank as ladies slip to loss
Scunthorpe's ladies travelled across the Humber to play in the annual Indoor Challenge match against North Cave ladies.
This event, in its sixth year, sees the teams compete for a cut glass Rose Bowl given by Scunthorpe member Heather Mackfall, who originally set up this yearly contest.
Scunthorpe started the match well against the current trophy holders and had developed a slight advantage of 51 to 50 shots by the halfway point.
However, the home team were not about to give up the game easily and rallied, producing some excellent bowling and making it extremely difficult for the visitors to develop any real advantage in the match.

Scunthorpe tried hard to match their hosts, but were unable to stop them from taking an 89-76 lead by the three quarters stage of the battle.
The visitors unfortunately were not able to make any kind of comeback in the game either, eventually losing 106-92 on shots overall, despite winning three out of the six rinks.
Winning rinks for Scunthorpe were headed by Josey Rayner (24 to 7 shots), Eleanor Nicholson (24-10) and Pat Kelly (16-13) while Mary Wall (5-33) Joan Bolton (11-25) and Meg Gall (12-18) were beaten.
Scunthorpe must now wait another year before being able to mount their next challenge to bring the trophy back to North Lincolnshire.
