Kane Potter put Old House back in front.

But that was all they could muster as Tony Plummer, Les Browne, Shane Plummer and Philip North bagged the points for George.

Stag B remain undefeated in division F following their 7-2 triumph over Clarence Gardens.

Robert Tomkins opened proceedings for Stag and despite early Clarence wins from Robert Stewart and David Stewart, Stag stormed to victory with Dion Jukes, Mark Barnes, Matt Jeffery, Dave Smith, Mark Cunningham and David Place junior all on the mark.

Admiral Drake B continued their domination of division A with a 5-4 victory against Mr Pickwick B.

His team-mate Adam Lipscombe won that in style, with 14 and 18-darters, and a 108 game-shot.

Lord Chichester A pulled level on points with division B’s third-placed team Rose in June B as they came from behind to win the key clash 5-4.

Graham A took a late consolation through Paul Skeates.

Tap B pulled away from the bottom of division D as they overcame relegation rivals Baffins 5-4.
