LEADERS Jolly Butcher won the clash between the top two in the Altrincham and Sale Round the Board Darts League, beating Cringlewood 5-2.

But the firepower of the leaders saw them clinch the points.

Timperley Cons kept themselves in sight of the top two with a good 4½-2½ victory against British Rail.

The mid-table clash between Broadheath Central and Budenburgs was a tight one that went in favour of the latter.

It was 3-2 when Kevin Legg, of Budenburgs, stepped up and took the wining game, making it 4-2 with Andy McCormack rounding things off with a last-game victory for Broadheath. 

A bottom-of-the-table clash brought the best out of Station with a magnificent 6-1 win against Central.

Station team captain Zoey Morris led from the front, winning her game while inspiring the rest of the team to great performances and a crucial victory.
