Waterlooville Gold have stretched their lead in division one of the Combination League.

They are now 37 points clear after trouncing Hayling Island on their all-weather green at Jubilee Park by 28 shots.

Syd Ralph had a runaway 23-shot success and Brian Sprack won five of the last seven ends to turn a seven-shot deficit into a six-shot victory.

There was a little consolation for Hayling as Brian Perren took his rink by one.

Alexandra Blue remain second on shot difference after losing by 16 to Denmead Gold at the Northern Parade club.

For the Gold boys, Ian Moy had a 19-shot win and George Carmichael was a six-shot victory.

But salvaging two points – which kept Alex in second spot – was Peter Wanley with a nine-shot win.

In third are Vospers B, who enjoyed a 33-shot win at Alexandra Park against Milton Park B.

Milton salvaged two points, though, as Roy Carter scored a treble on the final end to beat Ted Brown by two.

Waverley Blue moved up a place and left College Park B bottom after a 14-shot win.

The rink of Alex Marchant, Jim McDonald, Phil Drewball and skip Ollie Mew did the damage with a 19-shot win.

Rowner B won by two shots against Priory B.

Lee-on-the-Solent B raced to the top of division two with a crushing 29-shot win against previous leaders Fareham C.

Playing at Salisbury Terrace, the hosts’ Eric Brierley won by 12, Roger Williams claimed a 14-shot success and making it a full house of points was Frank Whittaker, who won by three.

Waterlooville Green and Waverley Red both won on one rink and tied on the other – but it was Ville who took the win.

They had Ron Read to thank for his 10-shot triumph, which more than countered the four-shot win of Steve Harper.

Water Company B remain in contention after a 16-shot win against Leigh Park Red and a 33-shot win against Naismith B.

There was no joy for bottom of the pack Post Office B, who lost by 12 shots to Gosport B.

Naismith B recovered from their defeat against Water Company B to beat Star & Crescent B by 13 shots.
