DISS Vikings suffered a frustrating evening at home to St Faiths Wanderers Wombats in division three of the Darby Rosettes Norfolk League on Thursday, May 14.

The hosts were only eight points short of a 5-0 maximum win, but lost 4-1 in a high-scoring match.

All five games finished 13-11 but only the opening triple of Peter Atkins, Robin Coe and John Byrne were on the victorious side.

Chris Johnson's winning start to the season was ended in Diss Duval's 3-2 defeat at Wanderers Wallabies.

Johnson had won his first six games and teamed up with his wife Jackie and Yoshi Shinagawa in the triples to make it seven.

But with Shinagawa in the doubles, he lost 13-3 to end his 100 per cent record. Jackie Johnson and Tom Dickinson got Duval's other win.

Le Diss Sportif's topsy-turvy season continued in division two.

After beating the previous two league leaders but losing to lowly Bob Carter, they slipped to a 5-0 defeat at new table-toppers Hethersett.

But two of the games went the distance with Jan Barsby, Liz Rudling and Dave Smith losing their triple 13-12 and the pairing of Lindsay and Steven Penny going down by the same score in a see-saw encounter.
