Chris Webb was in fantastic form as he clanged off fifteen dolls (4-6-5) to guide The Chequers B to a 2-1 triumph over their A team in Oxford & District Section Two.

They ‘visitors’ edged the opener 17-16 and were pegged back 21-18 in the second leg, before the A side fell four dolls short to lose the decider 20-16.

Seacourt Bridge and Gladiators B fought out a tense encounter as they traded 19-15 wins in the first two legs.

Seacourt set 18 in the decider and Glads left their last two players five points short, only for Tim Smith to clang off three and anchor man Darren Cox finishing the job with a four as the visitors reached 20.

In Section One, New Club triumphed 2-1 at The George A following a thrilling contest with only one doll separating the teams.

The first two legs were nearly identical, as Kevin Stuart twice clanged off four dolls to tie after the visitors set 24 and 18 respectively.

On both occasions, though, New Club took it on three sticks to go 2-0 up heading into the final leg.

The in-form Stuart prevented a whitewash in the third as he once again whipped off four dolls to claim a 21-20 victory.

In the Premier Section, Gladiators had to dig deep to overcome Section One visitors The Ampleforth Arms A.

Chasing a set of only 16 in the opening leg, the hosts sneaked past the target with 18.

A more convincing 25-18 victory gave Gladiators an unassailable lead going into the final leg.

Set a tough target of 26, they scored 27 to complete a 3-0 win.

Andy Beal top-scored for the home side in week two, with 13 dolls (3-5-5)
