Donner and Mike Bridge were paired against Dan Frosdick and Luke Majors.
Donner warmed to the task with a 46 break to take the first frame.
With just 22 points scored in the last frame, Donner got in again and, with some amazing potting, rammed in a superb clearance of 106 to record his first league century this season, and cement the victory for the Cons.
Earlier, Brian Bridge and Lee Pawson shared the first two frames of the match with George Bartlett and Tony Lamberton, before Jon Steel and Lewis Singleton made it 3-1 to Cons when they won both their frames against Dave Cox and Dave Bartlett.
Club-mates Clee Cons A were away at Healing Legion B, and surprisingly went down 4-2.
A last-board 2-0 from M Chessman and Gary Wright, in which both the frames were settled on the final black, gave the home team their victory.
Earlier, Mick Goodwin, Rob Willerton, Damon Gresham and Craig Thomas had shared with the Legion's Barry Pearce, Craig Brocklebank, Dave Lainchbury and Colin Draper.
Taylor Made Carpets won 4-2 at West End A when Mark Stevens (68) and Ian Sadler won both their frames and Fred Parker, Keith Southwell, Craig Taylor and Keith Tomlinson shared with Dave Dixon, Paul King, Euan Hunter and Dave Mac.
A 2-0 win from Andy McArthur and George Clark and singles from Sean Bartlett, Keith Atmore, Dave Boyington and Dave Tanner gave Hainton B a 4-2 home win against Linden Homes A.
John Baker, Chris Brown, Mel Pratt and Daz Braithwaite won the frames for the visitors.
Clee Bowls C won 4-2 against a four-man New Street Lads but unfortunately the detail on the score-sheet is unclear.
Dads & Lads have a two-point lead over rivals Nats in Section A after winning 4-2 at Standard A.
Martin and Taylor Dowling were their two-frame heroes, with Brad Burrell, Lewis Sewell, and Jase and Mathew Lawton winning singles against Tony Eglin, Jack Bradshaw, David James and Geoff Brown.
Clee Bowls B thrashed West End B 5-1 when Janett Newell, Mick Parker, Dave Cox and Mike Barrett all won 2-0.
