Railway D operate a player rotation system in Division Three and it was the turn of Russ Keith to stand down.
However, with Colin Easton unavailable, Keith played and scored an impressive maximum against the University, who came from 4-3 down to win 6-4.
The highlight of the 7-3 win by Woolwell J over Siblyback was the victory by Henry Tam (3) over Miles Noel-Johnson in straight games by 11-4, 11-9, 11-9.
Tam, with Eric Cheung, then accounted for Noel-Johnson and Peter Daly 9-11, 11-5, 6-11, 11-3, 11-4.

BREWIN DOLPHIN MANNAMEAD WINTER TENNIS LEAGUE by David Williams
IN DIVISION A of the Ladies Doubles, Luisa Warring had a very competent sub in Sophie Murray in place of Sandra O'Sullivan.
After an even first set, Warring and Murray took control against Viv Sargeant and Nancy O'Connor winning 6-3, 6-1, 6-1.
Joan McGregor and Helen Foote won maximum points in Division B for the second match in succession.
Their opponents, Jean Humphries and Lynn McFarlane, played many good ground shots but the net play from McGregor proved to be decisive in a win by 6-1, 6-0, 6-4.
Suzuko Reed and Michelle Pooley had to give second best to Chrissie Bassett and Coral Smith by 6-2, 6-3, 6-0.
Three evenings later, Reed and Pooley were in action again and although they were beaten, they took a set off Nancy Northfield and Debbie Wilson, who won by 6-3, 5-6, 6-3.
With Jenny Snell awaiting a knee operation, leaving her mobility badly handicapped, it was left to Richard Avent to turn in his usual covering of most areas of the court.
The pair scored a creditable win over Ricky Palmer and sub Viv Sargeant, who must have been disappointed in winning just six games in a 6-4, 6-0, 6-2 defeat.
Also losing and winning six games were Dudley Tolkien and Janet Butler, who found Simon Dusting and Hannah Odam increasingly in control when winning by 6-4, 6-1, 6-1.
Chris Shorter and Phil Ticehurst had their usual tight match against Ron Cole and Rob Thomas.
The spin shots from Ticehurst just edged the match in their favour by 6-3, 6-5, 6-5, despite good serving from Thomas.
Two other matches resulted in pairs coming from a set down, when Dave Pemberton and Bernard Lien beat Declan O'Connell and Yuen Siu 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, while Kevin Thomas and Jamie Stephenson defeated Simon Dusting and Paul Matthews 4-6, 6-3, 6-5.
In Division C, Alan and Sam Donaldson are proving to be a strong pairing and turned in a comfortable win over Lester Ellicott and Dave Graham by 6-2, 6-5, 6-1.
There was still no joy for Mike Foote and Gary Eato, who found Peter Bradley and Matt Smith much the better pair by 6-1, 6-3, 6-2.
