Wellingborough maintained their perfect start to the campaign in Group A with a thrilling 8-7 away success at Peterborough Milton.
The visitors looked in command early on thanks to a four-hole success for Jonathan Gould and Neil Redding in the opening tie, and a win by the same margin from Tom Marshall and Andy Redding in game three.
With Milton taking the second game by a single hole, Neil Berryman and Steven Nicholls gave the home team the ideal opportunity to snatch victory by winning the fourth tie by six holes.
But it wasn’t to be for the hosts as Wellingborough’s David Hawkins and Kevin Knight halved the fifth game and Mark Hawkins and Ciaran Eeles did likewise in the final tie to make it three away team victories in three outings, and four in total, this year.
An under-strength Daventry were unable to break their duck this season as they lost for the fifth match in a row, going down 10-5 at home to Staverton Park in Group B.
Although the hosts battled hard throughout the contest, all hope of snatching a win disappeared when Steve Loydall and James Woolgrove took the fifth tie for Staverton by six holes.
Three convincing wins helped Northampton record a 14-0 home victory against Farthingstone as they moved to the top of Group C.
Although three games were halved, the Harlestone club always held the upper hand courtesy of David Goldman and Carl Groom (three holes), David George and Daniel Hayday (six holes) and Simon Hunt and Tony Shadbolt (five holes)
Farthingstone went into the contest in good touch after beating Rushden 14-4 the previous week, thanks to big wins from Peter Butterwick and Adam Smith (six holes) and Matthew Isaacs and Robin Slough (four holes).
