WAVERLEY Ladies A represented by Davinity Powis, Heather Mountford, Hannah Scott and Chris-Louise Estrada registered their third win on the bounce and in doing so, ended Beechdown A 100 per cent start to the season with a 4-2 victory.

With Viking A now installed as favourites for the title, their next game against Beechdown A, early in the New Year, could be pivotal.

St Marys shrugged off only having two pairs on their recent visit to play Viking A and came away with a 6-3 victory.

Hat-tricks from Matthew Benians and Katie Woods and Michael Nash and Andrea Woods saw St Marys home, whilst Viking A are still winless and in the relegation places.

Hurst A remain in second place in Open Division One after narrowly beating Viking A 5-4.

Wins for Davis Irvine and Michael Nash in the eighth rubber and Colin Dangerfield and Winsun Seng in the final rubber edged Hurst A over the line.

Simon Williamson and Tim Cooper were in imperious form and secured three rubbers for Viking A who move up to third despite this reverse.

For the second match in a row Aldermaston were taken to three ends in six of the nine rubbers and on this occasion winning four of these rubbers ultimately took them to a 6-3 victory over Whitchurch in Open Division Two.

It was a long night for William Belfield and Neil Hince who won all three rubbers, all with wins in the third end.

For the losing side Mark Loader and Kevin Scarpe won two out of their three rubbers that went the distance.

Waverly B moved up to second place with a 6-3 victory over bottom side BH Pegasus B. Hat tricks from Mark Gentry/James Huggins and Adam Hood/Phil Hood saw Waverley B over the line, whilst their team-mates Paul Branch/Stuart Dubber were frustrated to end up winless despite going to three ends in all their rubbers.

Ten points now cover second to sixth place and only top side Challengers appear to be out of the relegation dog fight, that may go to the last game of the season.

Andover Sports B moved up to third spot in Open Division Three following a 7-2 away victory over Beechdown C who remain bottom of the table.

A treble from Peter Sellers/Jamie Cooper, together with doubles from Martin Giels/Anthony Hughes and from Robin Leighton-Boyce/Matt Ricketts saw Andover Sports over the line, whilst there was a brace from Steve Cordingley/Tim Hassall for the losing side.
