St Neots have increased their lead at the top of Division One in the Huntingdon & District Bowls League with a crushing victory.

They picked up the maximum seven league points after beating Papworth, third at the start of play, 71-38.

Brampton, their nearest challengers, also won but could only amass five points in their 68-54 success at Hemingford.

Eynesbury had leapfrogged Papworth by courtesy of two points in their 77-55 loss at home to St Ives.

Buckden did their chances of avoiding the drop no harm at all with a potentially valuable 65-47 win over basement side White Hart.

Papworth B meanwhile had a better week than their A side and are now the new leaders of Division Three.

They thumped St Neots B 85-40 to claim seven points and move one clear of Houghton & Wyton who only managed five in their 66-50 win at home to Fenstanton.
