Red Arrows soared above Moneyfields to net a 10th consecutive victory in the Vintage League yellow division.

Led by Gareth Davies, the Arrows defeated Dave Deacon’s side by 15 shots to plough on at the top of the table.

Moneyfields, however, had fallen foul of the 25-per-cent deduction rule for playing one short.

Red Arrows lead by six points from trophy holders Blossom Hill Mob (Adrian Ash), who won by the five they scored on the final end against Jubilee (Tom Kelly).

Seagas (Geoff Spencer) remain in third place after a seven-shot victory against Watnotts (Ray Markwell), who are fourth.

Crestar (John Fitzpatrick) kept off the bottom with a three-shot victory against Alex M (Trevor Moore).

Palmills (Arthur Newland) were four-shot winners over Bell Boys (Terry Barton) and Muffins (Peter Wyncoll) won by three shots against New Boys (Brian Brown).

Trailblazers (Dave Biggs) held on to their 100-per-cent record and a five-point lead in the red division but only just.

They needed a double on the final end to beat Stamshaw Chickens (Dave Tiller) by one shot.

Patmos (Trevor Moore) lost by two to Odds (Peter Wyncoll) and The Pirates (Mike Carpenter) lost by 13 shots at the hands of the Sinners (John Marshall).

There was no joy for bottom side Riley’s Boys (George Hotson). They conceded 11 in the final seven ends to lose by eight to Beans (Keith Warren).

Dragons (Terry Barton) won by four against Gladiators (Ken George).

Acrest (Dave Powe) moved into the lead in the blue division after a five-shot win against Balfour Boys (Charlie Brown).

They took over from Anglicans (Brian Brown), who conceded seven in the final four ends to lose by three to the Dave Leeson-skipped Villians.

Muggs (Terry Barton) are still third after scoring nine in the final four ends to beat Heroes (Jim Anderson) by eight.

Ashbys (Roland Bloy) claimed a six-shot win over Compatibles (Ted Winning).

Does (John Holdaway) conceded counts of four and six but a late flurry saw them win by six against Brownies (Ron Heath).

Wanderers (Geoff Spencer) were seven-shot winners over Magpies (Ken Dodd).

Hillbillies, who were resting, remained top of the green division but Mixtures (Steve Tiller) closed the gap with a five-shot win against Shawmutts (Les Watts).
