Weston took control of the game dominating Keynsham with Gary Deakin (4-2) and Bob Anderson (4-3), both winning, before Dave Baker (25.22) finished off board one by hitting two 180s in his 4-1 success.

Board two was also going Weston’s way with Martin Vanedgemeister (23.99) fighting hard for his 4-3 win, followed up by Mike Norton and Clive Strong both winning 4-0.

The visitors went into the pairs with a healthy 37-26 lead and victory was sealed by Anderson/Strong, Davies/Luke Clegg and Baker/Si Clegg all winning 2-0 and the night was finished off with victory for Vanedgemeister/Deakin (2-1) and 46-31 overall.

Weston sit top of the division with two games to go. The next game is at home at the 49 Club against Odd Down on March 17.
