It was a good week for Lyme men in the league who took eight points off second placed Sherborne, writes Paul Moffitt.

They need to get similar results in their last three games if they are to challenge Bridport for the top slot in Division One.

The ladies continued their slide in Division One of the Dorset league losing 2-8 to top of the table Blandford.

In the Edna Paisley league the ladies managed to secure 6 points against Sherborne thanks to a handsome win by Pam Weech’s rink 26-3.
