Stanton helps secure hat-trick
8:00pm Friday 27th July 2012 in Sport
BROADWAY’S Amy Stanton helped England win the junior women’s international series for the third successive year.
They thrashed hosts Wales 110-72 in Llanelli and hammered Ireland 108-61 to be crowned champions despite losing their opener 83-68 to Scotland.
But Stanton missed out in the Women’s Junior British Isles Championships at the same venue with fellow Worcestershire player Sophie Inchley.
They lost 23-9 in the final to Scottish pair Natalie McWilliams and Stacey Laidlaw after seeing off Rebecca Shore and Kelly Packwood from Wales in the semis 23-12.
Meanwhile, Broadway ladies continued their bid to become the top club in the country with an emphatic 4-0 win over 2010 champions King’s from Torquay.
They face Bath or Caer Glow in the penultimate match before the final knock-out stage at Leamington in September.
Results, singles: Lynne Bowen won 21-10; pairs: Lynn Ashby and Sue Davies won 18- 17; triples: Trish Emms, Viv Hall and Joan Parfitt won 20-13; fours: Maureen Ford, Mary Shephard, Yvonne Hopkins and Bridget Cresswell won 21-17.
Broadway men had a busy week in the Concorde League, beating Droitwich Spa 147-66 and Hewell 118-71.
But they failed to end Littleton’s unbeaten record, going down 101-95 as Mick Aubrey was the sole winning rink for Broadway, beating Colin Shergold 25-17.
