UNIVERSAL A have secured the Stafford 55 (Jesse Brough) Bowls league title with a week of the season still to go.
The Doxey side whitewashed mid-table Penkridge and were celebrating after nearest rivals Greenway went down 5-3 at Penkridge CB.
That outcome meant that Universal, who have a match in hand on the chasers, could not be caught.
Third place Rowley Park ran out 6-2 victors at Alstom B to close the gap on Greenway, while Phoenix D and Alstom A recorded wins over Burton Manor (6-2) and Phoenix Rowley (5-3) respectively.
In division two, Phoenix B and Stafford A go into the final week still in with a chance of the top prize.
Both are locked on the same points with Phoenix B having the better aggregate - and
they face each other in the last group of matches.
In their latest fixtures, Phoenix B hit Alstom D 7-1 and Stafford A emerged 5-3 winners at Alstom C.
Third place Phoenix Riverway are ending the season in style with a 8-0 home win over County Officers.
Basement side Phoenix C chalked up their first victory of the season, 5-3 away to Stafford B, and so moved off the bottoom rung.
Mid-table Universal B travelled well, running out worthy 6-2 winners at AmasalP.
On the county scene, Staffs triumphed over North Midlands (159-111), Isle of Man (162-106), before going down 151-130 to South Yorkshire, in the Senior Supplementary County Championshp at Irlam Steel Social Club, Manchester.
