The pressure was on the unbeaten leaders and the next frame could have gone either way – but a comeback began as Lewis Singleton and Jamie Barrett took it.
They also won the last frame to rescue a draw and deny Westlands what would have been a great win.
The third promoted team, Birds Eye, have enjoyed a steady start to the season and they recorded another superb result beating Ray Edmonds B 4-2.
A middle order 2-0 from Paul Leggett and Tony Jagger was enough to give Mick Boyington's team the win.
At Carr Lane, 2-0s from Gaz Horsfall and Jon Leggett, of Carr Lane A, and from Tony Forster and Ian England, of Clee Cons C, meant it was all to play for. Visitors Rob Willerton and Lee Pawson then took the honours, winning both frames for a 4-2 victory.
Steve Arnold and Andy Stocks put Ray Edmonds South into a 2-0 lead over Peter Hogarth & Sons – but then a fightback began as Ian Hogarth and Paul Simpson won 2-0 and Mike Emerson and Pete Kuzemczak made it 3-2. However, Gill Wilson and Den Dannatt had the last word as they took the final frame to make it 3-3.
Webbonet continued their recent revival with another win despite being 2-1 down after Keith Southwell and Fred Parker had won the third frame of the night for Clee Home Guard.
Brian Hotson, John Parrott, Dave Webster and Steve Green converted the deficit into a 4-2 win.
It was to be a bad night for the Gas Man as Tom Keeley and Al Goodwin won 2-0 for Clee Cons A who eventually won 4-2.
Another title hopeful also suffered as Locate Supplies went down 4-2 in their derby match with Ray Edmonds A.
