Carter the unstoppable Tens machine as they claim league crown

Bob Carter are Tens League champions after Hevingham were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Coltishall.

With Carter completing their fixtures five points clear at the top, second-placed team Hevingham had the massive task of taking six points from their last two games.

Any hopes of achieving that took a huge knock in the first half as Willie Jefferies' Coltishall triple beat David Sharpe 17-7 and with Carol and John Aggas adding a 13-12 win against Gill Bunn and George Clarke, Coltishall held Hevingham to a 1-1 draw on points, 51-51 on shots.

Last season's champions Hempnall have had a mixed season despite fielding an enviable line-up but were in good form at Connaught where they won 3-0. Joan Cann and Paul Baker produced their best win, beating Chris Musk and Sylvia Parsons 16-7, while Ollie Allen's triple had the home team's only success, beating the Stevenson-Parker-Archer triple 12-7.

Connaught A are the Breckland Five Pairs champions after beating Wymondham by 38-29 in the final at Carleton Rode.

Gordon Wilcox and Ollie Allen were influential in a great team performance by Connaught, who are having a far more successful season than they themselves probably expected.

The biggest win of the night was produced by Connaught's Mike Parsons and Allen who hit top form, beating Melvyn Barker and Brian Saunders 13-5 to inspire Connaught to victory.

The Bure League title race should be decided in the next week with defending champions Kirby Bedon still favourites. Coltishall are the only team who could overhaul them but dropping two crucial points in an 8-2 win at Horsford will not help.
