* Barrie Scott and Ryan O’Connor remained top of the Evening Pairs on shots difference after winning 20-7 against Pete Fletcher and Anne Burchell.
Meanwhile, second-placed Barrie Robinson and stand-in partner Simon Reeson won 19-5 against Tony Powell and Wendy Neve.
Gary Boswell and Gill Fletcher were without a fixture and slipped to third, two points off the top two duos, but one point ahead of Dave Roper and his substitute partner Dave Evans who won 17-7 against Barry Toyn and Wendy Fernie.
* In Group B of the Australian Pairs, unbeaten leaders Malcolm Pearce and Rachael Stanley chalked up another victory in a 21-7 scoreline against Sue Gurbutt and Jill Scott, but the battle rages on for second spot.
Second-placed Ray and Sue Green won 18-9 in their game in hand against Pete and Wendy Neve, but then lost 14-15 to Richard Tyrell and Derek Tomlin who remain fifth, but only three points off the Greens with three games in hand.
Joint-third are Fred and Jean Bradley, who won 13-9 against Mick Winn and Peter Hodgson, and Barrie Scott and David Yates who saw off the Neves 15-7.
