Basingstoke Spades hold on to lead in bowls league
BASINGSTOKE Spades continue to hold their lead in Whitchurch League Division One after victory over bottom club Littleton (54-44).
There was no result in for Kingsclere Quails but they still hold second place in front of Howard Park A, who just beat Andover A 56-53.
Andover B just shaded Hyde Abbey (51-47) and St Mary Bourne thumped Hook Badgers 70-36.
Oakley A now hold top slot in Division Two having worked off their backlog with their latest win against Old Basing (46-42).
Alton Social stay second having beaten Kingsclere Partridges 61-37, while Marnell B have slipped to third and Howard Park C have closed the gap once more after hammering Thornycroft 82-37.
There was a win for St Mary Bourne Eagles over Hook Hares (60-50).
Whitchurch continue to dominate Division Three and so it is just a matter of which two teams get promoted.
The Yellows beat Town Jokers 45-36, Blacks beat Friary 52-35 and Blues beat Thornycroft 52-49.
Marnell A just overcame Littleton Lemurs (46-41) who also struggle to stay in the division.
Town’s Diamonds continue to set the pace in the Division Four having dispatched Howard Park B 68-35.
Andover C held onto second place after just shading third placed Hook Foxes (53-50). There were also wins for Old Basing Royalists over Hyde Abbey (50-32) and Oakley C against Kingsclere (54-46).
Loddon Vale marginally lost 109-101 in a friendly against West Berks last Sunday.
Loddon’s winning rinks were skipped by David Lloyd (24-9) and John Dallaway (26-16). The losing rinks were Steve Sallows (17-16), Alan Smith (19-16), Ian Laming (21-9) and Fred Goddard (27-10).
With the Stan Hardman League programme coming to a close there are just a few games that will decide who is in the play-offs.
In the Central Division, either Medstead or Howard Park are likely to join AWRE, while in the Eastern Division Cove and Fleet Cygnets cannot be caught.
Only Alton can prevent Four Marks from joining Alton Social in the last eight from the Southern Division.
The Western Division is still wide open but my money is on Whitchurch, with Kingsclere, Oakley and Andover still very much in the hunt.
