North Northumberland Bowls League
LAST week, it looked as though any one of four clubs could make a run for the league championship.
But Wooler broke from the chasing pack and surged to the top with an 8-0 win at Amble on a score of 74-42.
This put Alnwick into second place even though they won away to Rothbury on a score of 55-48.
Elsewhere, Lesbury lost 6-2 at home to Seahouses on a score of 61-45.
It leaves Wooler sitting on top, only shots difference from Alnwick.
