CREWE Open League’s Premier Division Darts top two will be Pioneers Club A and West End LMR B for the 10th consecutive season, with the order likely to be resolved in their final match encounter at the Pioneers.
Leaders Pioneers A won 5-3 at Commercial, but are now just one point ahead of LMR B, who whitewashed hosts Nantwich Road A.
Division One was this week’s disaster zone for home teams, with three losing 7-1 and the other two drawing.
Leaders Prince of Wales C hit seven at bottom-placed Flying Lady A and are four points up on Nantwich Road ASLEF, who drew at Hop Pole A.
Earl of Chester and Duke of Bridgewater A are close behind after the Earl hit seven at Express and the Duke let slip a 3-1 advantage in their draw at White Lion A.
Division Two pacemakers Sydney Arms forfeited a 3-1 lead in their 5-3 loss to visitors Woodside, meaning Cheshire Cheese, 5-3 winners at Rising Sun A, go one point back.
Third-placed Pioneers Club B must now be discounted after they let slip a 4-0 lead in a draw with Nomads leaving them 11 points off the pace.
Division Three leaders Oddfellows Club walloped Flying Lady B 7-1 and are now nine points ahead of their next opponents Brunel Arms A, who beat Coppenhall Leighton 6-2.
Third-placed Rileys Club A beat Captain Webb 5-3 and are one point further back after a needless two-point penalty imposition.
Division Four leaders Swan and Chequers self-destructed by letting slip a 3-1 lead in a 5-3 defeat at Rising Sun B, although main challengers Raven also had a night to forget when third-placed visitors Cumberland C hit them for seven to move within a point of them and a trophy place.
Division Five champions Willaston Club maintained their 100 percent record after coasting to a 6-2 victory over Prince of Wales D.
Distant second-placed Nags Head won 5-3 at fourth-placed Duke of Bridgewater B, with Rileys Club B still third after a 5-3 victory at Brunel Arms C.
