EMERGING DIVISION FOUR force South Stapenhill SC romped to a 6-3 win over Branston Arms.
A fairly new side, South Stap have gradually improved and produced an excellent display to overcome a Branston team who have struggled since moving from the New Talbot – and once again only fielded four players.
Craig Jackson is the Strap Inn’s star player, and is in at number five in the Super Hit Squad.
But Jackson was only needed once in a comfortable win which takes Strap up to seventh in the table.
In DIVISION ONE, the Wellington have been stuttering this season and cannot boast a single Hit Squad star in their ranks.
Unfortunately for newly-promoted Grove, they had to suffer the consequences as a rampant Wellie A gave them the boot. The crushing 9-0 whitewash moves the Wellie up to fifth in the table.
Both Doveridge teams rattled off 7-2 wins, but the B team still enjoy bragging rights in fourth place, with Doveridge A down in eighth.
Division One leaders Rileys A were under the cosh against an in-form Royal Oak D , and found themselves trailing 3-1.
But in a dramatic finale, Rileys triumphed in the deciding doubles to hold onto top spot.
In DIVISION TWO, Wyggeston’s great run was ended in week eight. Having already won seven in a row, an eighth victory looked on the cards after going 3-0 up against The Navigation.
However, Navi skipper Vince Bland, with two wins from two, and a double from Paul Robson turned the tables, as Wyggeston hit back to triumph 6-3.
The Spread Eagle flew back to top spot with their third 8-1 win of the season, leaving a battered Grange B in the drop zone.
New outfit Joiners B saw skipper Ben Stones make it to number four in the Super Hit Squad with three wins from three.
Stones led his side to a 7-2 win over Grange A to go second on frame difference behind Spread Eagle.
Dart C demolished Dog Inn 8-1 in DIVISION THREE to go fifth. Tracy Newman won two out of two to make it to number one in the Hit Squad list.
Coopers A are on a roll and their 7-2 victory puts them up to sixth.
Another good 7-2 win for Drum and Monkey, who have Scott Stubbs and Matt Davis in the Super Hit Squad, keeps them two points clear at the top.
There are just 10 weeks left in this season’s Super Hit Squad battle, with Sharpshooters’ Shane Morris still leading the way from Division One stars Dave Fernandez and Brett Bailey.
