Two wins for Kestrels saw them take top spot in the Triples, on shots difference, ahead of Otters who suffered a rare defeat, 14-11, to Wasps.
Kestrels took full advantage with a comfortable win over Dreamers and followed it up by eventually overcoming Meridian 19-6.
Otters returned to form when they also produced a big victory over Dreamers.
Wasps moved within three points of the top two when just getting the better of Mudlarks by 12-9, while Matelots didn’t have a game and are eight points back in fourth place.
Bottom team Meridian earned a 12-12 draw with Two Plus One to move level on points with Dreamers, but four points behind Scorpions who beat Two Plus One 18-3.
* There was a cracking game between the top two in Division One of the Australian Pairs where Malcolm Pearce and Mike Norton nicked a 10-9 win against Derek Blow and Barrie Robinson to regain top spot from their opponents.
There was never more than three shots between the pairs, but Blow/Robinson had their noses in front from the first end before Pearce/Norton drew level with three shots on the next to last end and somehow held on for shot on the final end.
* In Division Two, Sue Gurbutt and Jane Scott hung on to edge Anne Malcolm and Charlie Briggs 11-10.
They stay two points clear of Heather Masters and Roger Orme who won 16-11 against Peter Neve and substitute partner Simon Reeson.
Bottom pair Tony Hunter and Joe Yensen again just missed out on a win when losing 10-6 to Christine and Bob Tice, but remain just one point behind Bobbi and Keith Mumby-Croft.
They were edged out 14-13 by Sheila and Ken Webster as the two pairings exchanged places. Only three points separate the bottom three.
