CREWE Open League’s Premier Division Dominoes leaders Kings Arms A’s losing streak was extended to three matches when fourth-placed visitors Vine A won both pairs games to clinch a 5-3 win.

But main challengers Nantwich Road A again failed to take advantage and are four points off the pace after drawing at Cosey. West End Band C are now only one point behind after hitting six for the third week running, this week at Pioneers A, and are now posing a very serious challenge for runners-up berth.

Division One sees Hop Pole A move two points clear at the top after a 5-3 win at Earl of Chester.

Main challengers Nantwich Road ASLEF were beaten 5-3 by visitors Flying Lady A and now have five challengers, all covered by three points, snapping at their heels.

Division Two is getting even more competitive despite leaders Pioneers Club B’s double 6-2 win at Rising Sun A taking them five points clear.

Woodside beat Amalgamated B 5-3 and head eight teams covered by just four points, possibly vying to be runners-up.

Division Three’s top two Brunel Arms A and Liberal Club gained 5-3 victories at Hawk and Vine C respectively, to stay separated by three points.

Coppenhall Leighton, held to draw by Rileys Club A, have not managed a win for seven matches and have dropped from top spot to joint third and seven points off the pace.

Division Four’s leaders Coach and Horses had a bye week but just managed to hold top spot, albeit by one point, from new challengers Waldron.

White Lion drew with Nantwich Road B and drop to third, one point behind the Waldron with a match in hand.

Division Five still has the two Brunel teams to the fore.

The B team, 5-3 victors over the Prince of Wales D, are six points ahead of the C team, who drew at Prince of Wales A.

Duke of Bridgewater B’s poor form has spread to their dominoes team and sees them two points back in joint-third spot along with Nags Head and Rileys B, who were 6-2 winners at Foresters Arms B and Hop Pole B.
