BINTON A cemented top spot in the Stratford & District Airgun League Webley Shield table with a 225-223 victory over MEB, despite conceding a 26-point handicap.
Binton shot consistently with 34s from Chris Reed, Michelle Dale and Andy Smith and 33 from Will Cemis.
Marc Anderton and Derek Powers top scored for MEB with 31 apiece.
Wilmcote turned out with eight shooters and fought strongly to pull back the handicap given to Avon.
Three of their shooters – John Maycock, Adam Clarke and Jamie Clarke – missed only one bull each for scores of 34 and four shooters scored 33s.
Avon’s Karl McMillan countered with a season best score of 33 but, with only six shooters, the A N Other score of 28 did not help.
Their 234-232 victory put Wilmcote second in table and Avon third, one and two points respectively behind the leaders.
Binton B had the advantage of shooting on their home target against Clifford and two handicap points, but too many loose threes enabled Clifford to secure a 212-211 victory despite having just six shooters.
Ben Chamberlain for Binton B and Jay Morris for Clifford led the scoring with 33s.
Home Guard versus Avenue was postponed.
