The top three all won in Division One of the Hastings & District Table Tennis League
but Saints A were alone in claiming maximum points from an 8-2 defeat of Hollington Academy D in which Dave Butler and James Winchester were unbeaten.
This moved Saints into second place on sets behind Hollington Academy A who beat Bexhill C 7-3 with maximums from Paul Barry and Nathan Darby.
Third placed Bexhill A also dropped a point but, given their injury situation they will be the happier. David Rayment won three and Ryan Warner two as Bexhill beat Hollington Academy B 6-4, with Rose Rainton winning two for the losers.
Towards the foot of the table, Bexhill D are on a bit of a roll as they beat Hollington Academy C 6-4 with two wins each for Cameron Jones and Kevin McEwan, despite a maximum for Academics’ Arthur Bracken.
Rivals Tackleway B brought in new signing John Dyson and he was unbeaten in the 7-3 win over Tackleway A. Roger Pingram and Sue Pingram both won two for the A side.
At the top of Division Two, the gap narrowed to a single point as second placed Hollington A beat Hollington B 9-1 with three from Shaun Godfrey and Kevin Barry and two from Steph Sargent.
Leaders Saints B edged past Bexhill H 6-4 with Ron Davenport unbeaten and Jamie Martin winning twice. Andy Panayi got a late call-up for Bexhill which left him with his own bat but no other sports kit but he still won two for the team.
