KNUTSFORD A posted the highest score during the latest round of matches in the Knutsford Friday League’s top-flight.

However a 161-106 success against Mere A is unlikely to be enough keep them in contention to finish as runners-up despite Railway A’s reverse at Goostrey A.

Victory Hall A stayed on course to complete a perfect season when they prevailed on a visit to Mere B.

Knutsford B edged closer to securing the Division Two title when they won at Warford Park A, while closest-rivals Swettenham B were similarly impressive winners at home to Chelford B.

Elsewhere Oughtrington A squeezed past hosts Cranford B by two chalks, while only four shots separated Oughtrington B from Goostrey B in another close encounter.
