EBA Section Four (Spalding area) Club Championship: TRIPLES Group A leaders Carter’s Park A boast one of only two 100 per cent records in the entire league – and their super start shows no sign of relenting.

The Holbeach side raced a massive 14 points clear of the pack with an impressive 10-0 success over Spalding Town A, which was the seventh win on the spin.

Terry Crane’s rink led the charge with a resounding 20-11 triumph. He was joined by H Chambers and K Gray.

Goodfellowship look to be the only side capable of hanging onto the leaders’ coat-tails after registering a fifth win from six matches.

They dispatched Moulton Harrox A 8-2 and were inspired by a mammoth 30-10 rink win from the set of P Rate, T Martin and M Rate.

Third-placed Royal Mail Cart were also comfortable winners, seeing off Consti A 8-2. A cracking 25 of their 59 shots came from B Elliot, P Allen and P Treagus – but they are some 23 points off the pace.

In Triples B, second-placed Castle A still have a hefty 17 point gap between themselves and table-toppers Billingborough after an 8-2 victory at Holbeach USC.

A clear 12-shot winning margin from E Spours, H Halifax and J Culy (23-9) was the pick of the rinks.

Meanwhile, you could throw a blanket over the top trio in Group A after all recorded big wins.

Royal Mail Cart A recorded the most emphatic of the title-chasing threesome, brushing aside Gosberton 10-0.

All three rinks were equally dominant, but top scoring were Mel Mashford, Peter Horsfield, G Walkley and A Radford (22-10).

That win moved Mail Cart level with Carter’s Park at the summit, after the leaders defeated Moulton Harrox 8-2.

With only one shot in the aggregate scores (43-42), a narrow 14-13 success from P Salter, B Mills, C Chamberlain and A Dunham proved pivotal.

Donington were also 8-2 winners, so they stay a point off the pace. In what was another really tight clash, a big 18-11 rink return from R Slaughter, R Pearson, A Slaughter and J Needham was key.

Away from the top three, Ayscoughfee jumped up to fourth with an eye-catching 9-1 triumph over Consti.

With one rink drawn and another decided by the odd shot, a 25-7 win from T Gowing, D Turner, M Bingham and C Warboys made life a little easier for the hosts – who are some 16 points off the pace.

Elsewhere, Bourne Town stayed eight points ahead of the chasing pack in Group B.

They put Long Sutton to the sword 8-2 and notched 61 shots, with 26 of them coming from T Brooks, A Farmer, P Tory and M Northern.

It’s as you were with the top two, with Billingborough also 8-2 victors.

They were pushed all the way by a Spalding Town B side that are still searching for a maiden win of the campaign after five matches. P Howse, D Wesley, E Atter and D Robinson starred 22-12.
