THERE was only one match in the Hammersmith Pool League World Division this week - but it was enough for St Augustine's C to consolidate their place at the top of the table.
Their 8-4 win over lowly Leamington B extended their lead by three points over Leamington A and Rileys West 12 A.
In Old EPA Division One, Parish B went down 7-5 at Hammersmith Club B, and the result was The White Horse have a seven-point lead with three matches left so they merely have to turn up to those games to secure the title. In the division's other game, Windmill Warriors overcame St Augustine's Caballeros 7-5.
In Old EPA Division Two, St Augustine's Saints achieved a remarkable 7-5 win at Wilton Arms to inflict a first defeat of the season on the runaway leaders. In the other match, The Clarence beat Duke of Cornwall 8-4. Wilton have already won the title but the race for second could not be closer with Earl of Derby, Springbok B and Saints all level on points.
