Compasses won the battle of the Ridley League’s top two, but Chequers remain three points clear.
Chris Cook threw a 180, five 140s and double-in starts of 160 and 102, but Compasses were 3-2 down before sealing the darts points.
Yvonne Hall-Wilson made it a rare blank night for Mandy Dodd in the mixed and women’s games, but Chequers are still the dominoes form team, taking the first four games and, with a haul of nine points out of 10, they lead the section.
Little Waltham SC beat third-placed Chelmsford Black Bull to move one point behind them with a match in hand. The Bull’s Des Vickers marked his return to action with two wins, plus in-shots of 140 and 110, but the visitors were second best.
Two wins by Mike Frappell and Steve Richardson helped earn a point that keeps them second in the dominoes table.
