The Strutt Club derby resulted in an emphatic 5-0 victory for the No 1 team, who moved into the runners-up spot with just one week of matches remaining in the J K Interiors and Joinery Services League.
Wayne Shooter, Paul Jarrett and Steve Bullock reeled off consecutive frames to make the match secure before the icing on the cake was provided by Mark Newby, who won both his singles and doubles frames, latterly with Bullock.
The No 2 team could only total 103 points in the match, such was the dominance of their counterparts.
Bolehill No 2 dropped to third after losing 3-2 to champions elect Edgefold No 1 with Mick Bunting and Andy Russell top scoring respectively.
Jaxx Q Club also went under 3-2 to Matlock Club for whom Dave Allen top scored after Jak Groom had equalised at 1-1, though they do still have an extra game to play in their favour.
Alfreton Palmer Morewood scored a magnificent 5-0 win at Matlock Cons to boost their play off hopes as Simon Mayes (33 break) and Kevin Rowland (31 break) were too hot to handle.
Elsewhere, Bolehill No 1 won the first three frames at Edgefold No 2 with Colin Marchington top scoring before Jodie McLarkey took both his singles and doubles legs (where partnered by Sean Dobney who notched a classy run of 33).
