The crucial match at the bottom of Div 2 between Anchs 5 and Howard 6 ended in a draw after Anchs maintained their recent impressive Doubles form to secure the vital 5th point. Andrew Marchant produced a Captain's performance with a hatrick for Howard but had to fight off a comeback from Jacques Domingue in the 7th game of the evening to remain unbeaten. Teammate Lewis Browning picked up an important double with wins against Domingue and Aubrey Maryott. Anchs' Michael Barker,playing his 2nd game of the week, justified his selection with a double beating Michael Leonard and Browning. Leonard also provided Maryott and Domingue with their single wins with Maryott having to come back from 2 legs down. Howard remain 3 points ahead of Anchs with one match each to play but Howard have to play Cliffe Woods and Anchs go to Chatham Dorset (the other side in the mix) to see who will finish 2nd bottom and possible relegation.
