Unbeaten Chequers Inn A had to pull out all the stops to overcome Kidlington B 5-4 in a Premier Section match that contained no fewer than nine maximum 180’s.

Aaron Stevens led the way with three of them.

Goodlake Arms B shocked their Premier clubmates Goodlake A by recording a 6-3 triumph.

Playing the pairs first, the B side, from Section 1, grabbed a 3-0 lead, which they increased to 4-0 when Tom Baughan got the better of Kevin Wilkins.

The A side hit back through Preben Krabben, Terry Wood and Mark Breakspear (180), but the B team had the final word as Kevin Barefoot and Matty Smith (180) wrapped it up.

Corner House A visited Section 2 rivals George Bar A and got off to a flier thanks to Mick Kennett and Trevor Ballard.

The George pulled one back when Jimmy Oram got the better of Mick O’Leary, before the visitors ran away with it via Richard Reveley, Mark Kerry and James Harding. A 2-1 pairs win sealed a 7-2 triumph.

High-flying Red Lion, Eynsham, visited Kidlington Green A, who went ahead through Clinton Cantwell.

Steve Willoughby beat John Fowler to make it 1-1, but the consistent Mark Stocker restored Green Club’s 2-1 lead when he defeated Tony Buckingham.

Once again, the Lion levelled as Paddy Kearns beat Dean Lockyer, and the home side got home 6-3 thanks to Kevin Middleton and Jim Deabill, plus a 2-1 pairs success.

Rileys A kept up their title challenge with a 5-4 success over the visiting Vikings A.
