Table-toppers Antrim Lawn suffered their first defeat of the season on their visit to Curran Ladies.

The Larne-based team adapted very well to Thursday’s atrocious conditions with play being interrupted on several occasions.

Tilda Carmichael, Linda Swann and Eileen Magill, skipped by Valerie Noble, completely overpowered their opponents, losing out on only four of the 18 ends. They returned a 20-shot to five-shot winning card.

Although having two four-shot lies in the first seven ends, Pauline Blair, Ethel Miller, Rene Gallagher with Lynda Simms at skip trailed by nine shots to eight.

Thereafter the Larne Ladies asserted their authority running out 19 shots to 12 victors.

Result: Curran 39 (5 points) v Antrim Lawn 17 (0 points).

Next game: Curran host Lagan Valley (May 26).
