Section A run in – Skimmers and Breakaways lead the way

Skimmers and Breakaways both won last week to take a 3 points lead at the top of Section A, Skimmers overcame a potential banana skin winning away to Puddletown Wanderers hitting 428 which is the highest score hit with the new pins that Wanderers use. Breakaways won away to Half Pints by 25-pins which almost puts the Half Pints out of the title race. Jolly Green Giants had their first win in six games and trail the leaders by 3 points as do Royal Oak Wanderers. Essentials lost ground on the leaders when they were beaten by 47-pins at the Three Compasses by Barmy Army. Breakaways will be weary of Barmy Army’s recent return to form when they host them in the match of the week in Section A on Friday. Colliton Imps home defeat by Dewlish Monsters ended any faint hopes they had to stay in the title race.
