There were some very closely-fought matches in the Huntingdon & District Bowls League with a number of particularly interesting fixtures.
Brampton, second in Division One, hosted third-place Eynesbury and it was the away side who picked up the victory, winning 63-60 and picking up five of the seven league points on offer.
There was another surprise result in Division Two as leaders Ramsey A lost 58-51 to third-placed Somersham A.
They have been replaced at the summit by Sawtry who defeated Needingworth 67-43.
Sawtry's B suffered a big 69-31 defeat to St Neots B in Division Three, pulling Saints clear of the relegation zone and leaving Sawtry six points adrift.
St Ives C travelled to Chatteris for a Division Four battle but left empty-handed after a loss.
Chatteris have now slipped to second from bottom while Ives are up to third, five points behind their B team and a further eight behind leaders Ramsey B.
