Rockets took another step towards the Division Two title in the North Bridge LC League when they had their expected success over struggling Innscribe on Monday.

They didn’t have things all their own way but a 24-19 success kept them five points clear at the top with five games to go.

Chasing pair TAG and White Rose also won but Rockets are looking good to gain the promotion to the top section which has proved so elusive for them in the past.

Impact inflicted a first defeat of the season on Tommos in Division Four, by 20-14, to boost their promotion prospects.

Sparkles’ 27-14 win over Ravens moved them to within two points of the leaders.

Barki Belles are looking good for bottom section honours after they received a walkover against Rubies and Batley Panthers were surprisingly held by Ladybirds.

Warriors went second and have emerged as serious promotion contenders after a 24-13 win over Sowerby Stars.

Division Two: Innscribe 19 Rockets 24, Robins 15 Pumas 21, Blue Maverick 19 TAG 25, Jets 16 White Rose 22, Queens 18 Yo Yos 14.
