The Strollers were in good form with wins of 21-15 for Alan Everitt and 18-16 for Bernard Woods.

Invaders fell on both rinks to Holland Fen, who collected the points with wins of 26-10 and 20-15.

Royal Mail have found points and wins hard to come by this season but they are now getting the results.

Matched against IBC, Alan Hill came from behind to win 20-14 and Keith Sharp won 23-11.

Punchbowlers’ Iris Reeson, Bunny Reeson and Andrew Limb did not give their points up without a fight against Carlton Road’s skip Chris Gill, who just edged it 17-20.

As expected, leaders Eastenders collected six points from their game with Norprint thanks to Paul Flatters (31-12) and Richard Vinter (20-12).

In the T&B Containers Division Two, Red 5 made the most of Feathers’ bye week to go top following a maximum points haul against Amateurs.

In the Cammacks Division Three, leaders Cosmos beat U3 as Bob Thompson won 26-14 and Andrew Dunnington triumphed 17-8.

Second-placed Vikings fell to fourth-placed Central.

Central’s Malc Nichol won 21-12 to cover the reply from Vikings’ Keith Stones (13-14).

The top two cannot relax as the Dynamics are closing in, beating Traders thanks to 24-11 and 28-6.

The Rileys had too much strength for the Highflyers, with skips Pete Sharman and Alan Dunnett successful 24-8 and 20-8.

Shipmates pipped Fairways by one point.

For Shipmates, Pat Pitts, Richard Sharp and Ted Vere won 28-4, while Fairways’ Anthea Hall triumphed 5-28.
