Leek & District Darts League

DIVISION One leaders Dyers Arms III showed no mercy for their compatriots as they demolished Dyers II, dropping only one leg.

Second-placed Ashcombe beat Ball Haye Tavern III but lost ground. Butchers Arms enjoyed a resounding win over Dyers IV to replace them in third spot.

Travellers Rest continue to make their way to first division status, although they were made to fight all the way against a spirited Ashcombe Park II.

Lazy Trout put another dent in the hopes of Red Lion, while Benks consolidated their third place at the expense of Abbey.

In Division Three, Flying Horse were Horseshoe's latest victims but Windmill matched them in what turned out to be a one-sided event at fellow contenders Prince of Wales.

Ball Haye Green took over at the top of Division Four when they met fellow promotion contenders Hare & Gate. The Gate's consolation came from Mark Millward but the rest were blitzed by Baz Pointon and co.

Blue Mugge II went second courtesy of a good away win at Central I, while Benks III eased their relegation worries against Pride of the Moorlands, who stay rooted to the bottom. Boat Inn are still at the head of affairs in the fifth tier but Valiant are hot on their heels.
