8:00am Saturday 18th January 2014 in Sport
NITWITS kept their two-point lead at the top of the Premier Division of the Burnham, Highbridge & District Ladies’ Skittles League after beating Berrow Breezers by just five pins at Berrow Club.
Eight Belles have moved into second place as they took the points from Cannonballs at the George Hotel; Blinders moved up to third as they beat off the opposition Hotshots by 30.
Maybee’s, equal third playing a sergeant major, were no match for home team Crown Jewels at the Ritz Club who ran out winners by 21.
Pin Ups moved up the table after a narrow two-pin win over Watchfield Belles.
There was no change at top of Division 1 as both the top teams lost their matches – Bristols went down to Wotsits who are third, and Country Girls fell to Tri-ards.
Wayward Wanderers got badly-needed points as they overcame Old Railway at Highbridge Social Club.
In Division 2, Victoria Vixens extended their lead to four points as they outplayed Pawlett Legion by over 40 and Applecatchers winning against Bombers went second in the table.
Red Devils came back to life as they won by four pins over Berrow Club B and Coasters fell to Wanderers at the 37 Club.
