Jase and Matthew Lawton then edged the visitors ahead, but Emmerson and Elshaw had the final say.
Clee Cons B shot back to the top of the Premier Section after winning all six frames at home against Healing Legion A. Jamie Barrett, Scott Gibbins, Jon Steel, Lee Pawson, Steve Donner and Mark Goss were just too strong for the visitors.
Club-mates Clee Cons A kept their unbeaten run going with a 3-3 draw at Blossom Way B. A 2-0 from Craig Thomas and Damon Gresham, and a single from Jimmy Yates and Paul Beasley against John Rowson and Myles Kennan, had them 3-1 up. But a 2-0 from Brian O'Bee and Stuart Gibb levelled the tie.
Linden Homes B put five past Hainton A when Scott Templeman, Anthony Jagger, Gaz Horsfall and Den Leggett won the first four frames before Dave Cox and Dave Bartlett saved the slam for Hainton with a single against Chris Madsen and Glenn Leggett.
Elsewhere in Section A, Dono Want and Michael Carno won the first frame for Blossom Way A at Standard A but that was their lot as Adam Boyington and Pete Gibson - with a single - and Dave Rushby, John Brocklesby, Paul Abbott and Jack Bradshaw -with two-apiece - won the rest of the frames for the home team in a 5-1 victory.
West End B shot into a 4-0 lead at Cromwell B when Dave Page, Peter Needham, Walt Simpson and Barry Jebson all won 2-0. Dave Telfer and Phil Revell stopped the rot with a last-board 2-0 for the home side.
The same thing happened at Clee Bowls B when Jamie and Dennis Wallis, and Ray Smith and Brian Woods won the first four frames for Healing Mens. In the end, it was left to Doug Stolworthy and Dave Walton to restore some pride for the Bowlers.
