WHATEVER is happening? For the second week running Papermakers went down 7-0, this time at the hands of a much strengthened Mason.

Fortunately 'Makers domino players salvaged some pride, taking the points after having let a 2-0 lead slip to 2-2, but then taking the last.

Top Bull continued their good start, P Hesten hitting a 17 darts finish, as he led the charge against Staff of Life.

With the domino points as well, the home side justified their name.

A tight match at Old Cross, where visitors Beer Engine came from 2-0 down to take the next three and the lead, but Cross just had too many decent players, and claimed the last two.

Cross's V. Swire and Beer Engines L. Fitton both hit 180's.

The bones were a different matter, Cross taking the first four before the visitors got on the scoresheet.

J Fletcher and B Garvey winning their game 91-49. St. Mary's just pipped it to take the points in a close game against Wellington, but the visitors showed their intention of holding on to their domino title by taking the first four games. Swan & Railway enjoyed their visit to Turf, taking the first six games before Turf got a consolation, and at dominoes if was nearly a white wash, Turf winning their only game 91-90.

The visitors took the first two, then it was five in a row for the home side, who also took the bones in some close games.
