We approach the two-thirds stage (a close relation of the half-way mark) with all still to play for.
In the A League, all the usual suspects won, namely the Ox-ffords x 2, the Dolphin and the Principals. The Ox-ffords, Dolphins and Principals occupy the traditional top 5 spots with precious little between them.
The B League is tighter still with the Puss Heads losing only their second game of the season to the Baths Hotel, who were in fact playing their very first game at their new home of the Pack Horse Bowling Club. The Baths won 116 - 112 with Mike Vickerstaff leading the way with 33.
Elsewhere the other three games were also close. 4 points was again the only difference between the Cock Inn and the victorious Waters Green Phoenix in a 114 - 110 scoreline. Bob "Grandad" Langstaff scored another 30.
The Knot Inn look comfortable in second place in the League with a game in hand after they beat the George & Dragon by 10 points. The Plough Taverners stay fourth after a 12 point win over the Church House Bollington.
In the C League the Albion sit deservedly top of the tree after a 127 - 121 win over the Chester Road Tavern. The Lamb Inn go second after a win in the "Sutton Derby" against the Sutton Church House, Marshall Barnard scoring a season's best 30. The two Byrons continue to have not a lot of luck but their scores are improving as the season wears on and their time will surely come.
