NATIONAL quarter-finals are on the agenda for Huntingdon Indoor Bowls Club ladies after a nail-biting three-shot win in the Mason Cup against Northampton B.

The two rinks from Huntingdon travelled to Northampton expecting a close game and after Margaret Elstub's rink had suffered a 15-17 shot reversal, a place in the next round looked unlikely.

But the second rink, led by Cathy Snitch, held their nerve to record a solid 24-19 win to book a place for Huntingdon in the next round.

The rinks playing at St Peter's Road, skipped by Margaret Elstub and Pat Purssord, missed out 20-22 and 19-20 respectively in games that could have gone either way.

The two away rinks needed something special at Peterborough IBC, and skip Nicky Verlander and her team obliged with an 18-18 tie. It was the rink skipped by Daphne Cooper that saved the day, with a 30-19 trouncing in which they were seldom in trouble.

The win keeps Hunts IBC Ladies sitting in second place in the County League.
