DARTS: BURMA are first past the post in the Runcorn Apec Taxis League - the only team as yet to clinch a divisional title.
They took the Section Five crown with a 6-3 win over third-placed Tranny Mixed, which preserved their unbeaten record.
Second-placed Dev Superstars moved two points clear of the Tranny side, having played a game more, after overcoming Halfway Mixed by the same margin.
Clarendon, in fourth, are a further two points adrift, despite beating fifth-placed Eggie Arms 7-2.
Leaders RNA are now strong favourites for Section Four glory. They not only beat third-placed Draymen 8-1, but also saw second-placed Grapes crash 5-4 to bottom-of-the-table Roundhouse, for whom this was a first win. The Westoners' victory was achieved despite a 19-dart game by Chris Kennell.
To cap it all, fourth-placed Royal Oak (Mike O'Dwyer 19 darts) went down 5-4 to Weston Point SC and fifth-placed Pavilions B lost 6-3 to next-to-bottom Cherry Tree B.
Section Three leaders Halfway Gents opened a two-point gap over second-placed Castle. Paul Edwards' 120 finish spearheaded a razor-sharp 9-0 victory for the Gents over Dock Lads, who have fallen into the basement.
Castle slipped up in their quest for the title, losing 6-3 to third-placed Waterloo. Union Tavern's 5-4 defeat by Dreadnaughts was their third successive setback - the winners are now up to fourth.
Fiddlers Three's Robbie Griffiths finished on 100 in a 5-4 win over Lion which lifted the Castlefields team off the bottom for the first time this season.
Albion continued the un-beaten run which has made them Section One leaders. They beat local rivals Outcasts 6-3, with their best performances coming in the doubles games.
Eamonn Hartigan and Gary Kneale finished in 15 darts while Paul Melia and Nigel Peterson went out in 18. For the losers, Kevin Coles threw a maximum.
Tricorn, in second, had to come from 4-2 down to beat Taverners 5-4. Brian McNamara and Peter Revill finished in 14 and 19 darts respectively for Tri-corn, while their anchor-man Steve Roberts weighed in with a 125 out-shot (18, 57, bull) to clinch the match.
Halfway A stayed in contention for runners-up spot with a 6-3 win over Lion Doo Waps.
Elsewhere, a 108 finish from Jason Watkins helped Red Admiral into a 3-1 lead against fourth-placed Wilson's.
But thanks in part to a 16-dart game from Ian White, the latter stormed back for a 6-3 win.
Section Two leaders Likely Lads retained their two-point advantage over Tranny Lads, with a 19-dart game from Alan Friar contributing much to the cause as they saw off local rivals Prospect Has Beens 5-4.
Steve Allan's 13-dart game, including a maximum, was the quickest of the night and helped Tranny Lads to a 6-3 win against Halton Marauders.
Third-placed RAOB Buffs slipped up, losing 5-4 to Pavilions A despite a 19-dart game, also including a maximum, from John Murty.
Wanderers moved off the foot of the table, trading places with Cherry Tree A after beating them 5-4.
