ELY AND DISTRICT BOWLS LEAGUE BY RON MOORE
SOHAM A enjoyed a great week, gaining maximum points from both Haddenham and Soham B and amassing a further 75 shots.
The followers, Fordham and Newmarket, also had two wins, and there were 12 useful points for Isleham and Chippenham, who ended City of Ely's unbeaten run.
Ely Beet B suffered two defeats and dropped to seventh.
ISLEHAM were without a match but remain top, their nearest challengers Fordham losing to lowly Hiam.
Two wins for Soham A improved their position to third as Littleport went down to Newmarket. At the foot of the table, Chippenham and City of Ely moved up but luckless Ely Beet are well adrift with only one win all season, although they have had some close encounters.
Afternoon League Division One
SOHAM are in line for the double, having knocked out Bottisham to reach the final of the Gordon Bridges Cup.
In the league, they have taken all the points off rivals Littleport B, who drop to fourth, level with the A team but with fewer shots.
City of Ely extended their winning run to seven and now boast plus shots for the first time as have Mitchell Lodge.
Afternoon League Division Two
RAIN again restricted the programme with one day washed out and only four matches played on the second date.
There were mixed fortunes for the Fordham promotion chasers, the B leaders surprisingly losing to Stretham, but the A team only dropped half a point at Cottenham.
In the other games, Bottisham B and Haddenham both had narrow home victories.
