Title-chasing Spalding Town suffered a hiccup in their bid for EBA Section Four Club Championship glory after Carter’s Park handed them a rare loss last week.
In the big game of the week in Group A, the third-placed Holbeach side stormed to an 8-2 triumph to inflict Town’s third defeat of the campaign.
They won on two of the three rinks, with a whopping 25-8 success from Scott Dunham, Annie Bellamy, R Dunham and N Dunham setting the tone.
Town remain some 19 points clear at the summit, but Park are now well-positioned in third with a game in hand.
So are second-placed Ayscoughfee, who handed basement boys Consti an 8-2 reverse.
Their stand-out set came from Chris Mycock, Paul Cherry, Eamonn Cherry and C Cherry (24-9).
It was another tough week for Bourne Town at the foot. They are level with rock-bottom Consti after an 8-2 reverse at the hands of Moulton Harrox.
A 29-17 set success from Harrox quartet M Stanley, G Hicks, K Grundy and R Duke sealed Bourne’s fate and they remain 34 points adrift in the bottom two.
Group B leaders Castle A made it eight wins from nine games with a battling 8-2 victory over Billingborough.
Their latest win was wrapped up by a fine 20-15 triumph from Ray Tucker, T Bell, D Churchman and P Godding.
Holbeach USC did chop their advantage by two points with a whitewash win over Deepings. D Ecclestone, S Hatton, A Barker and B Holland (21-8) were the big winners in the 10-0 win.
There was a big shock in Triples A, with lowly Consti B upsetting leaders Goodfellowship 8-2.
In what proved a very close contest, a pivotal 17-15 success from B Pepper, F Wright and S Davis got Consti over the winning line.
That allowed Carter’s Park A to close the gap at the top to just seven points. They drubbed third-placed Consti A 9-0, with R Booth. K Crane and R Allen (24-10) top scoring.
Meanwhile, Castle B moved level at the top of Triples B with a dominant 10-0 triumph at Ayscoughfee.
