Dan Franzen, Ja­son Hine and Sarah Mal­lott starred for Penn, who seem to be hit­ting top form.

Ha­zle­mere CC recorded only their sec­ond win of the sea­son at the ex­pense of Winch­more Hill, 9-5, with a max­i­mum from Her­bie Mar­shall the high­light for the vic­tors.

The only un­beaten record has fallen after Judo Club lost 8-6 to Cres­sex CC E who are up to third and have games in hand on the top two.
