The ladies beat North Mymms at home on Tuesday of this week by six shots.

Maureen Neal, Beryl Burbridge and Eileen Anchor won 23-8, which was good enough to cover for defeats by the other two Potters Bar triples.

Gladys Platts, Pat Pescod and Barbara Mouland lost 15-9 to their Mymms opponents and Eve Fenwick, Josie Massey and Pat Thompson were also beaten 15-12.

Potters Bar's ladies completed their victory hat-trick with success away to Finchley BC in the Brigg League on Wednesday.

The visitors won on both rinks to take the overall match by five shots.
