Alongside Peter Graves and Mel Flack, Sheriff helped see off Roebuck BC in a comfortable 25-13 win.
The trio of Len Payne, Mick O'Flanagan, and Peter Adams registered a 17-4 victory over Roebuck, before joining Laurie Ramsay for fours action and a comprehensive 23-17 win against the Three Horseshoes.
However, a Riverain four gave Sheriff, Keith Dockree, Sean Young and Matt Coppen a run for their money, and took the lead on the 18th end.
However, Royston responded well and bounced back with an 18-13 win.
In the same competition, Royston's Terry Holland, Stan Whitehouse, Mel Flack, and skip Bob Porter, had a tight game against their Roebuck opponents, with their rivals edging in front on the 21st end, with an 18-17 victory.
Royston's final four of Brian Pepper, Charles Gifford, Mike Randall, and skip Rodney Dean, were out-bowled in their match against Roebuck, and crashed to a 24-6 defeat.
Elsewhere, in the Meldreth & District League, Royston claimed a narrow win as Will Martin guided his team of Jo Bannerman and Alan Redpath to a 20-8 victory, which allowed Royston to secure a 67-59 win, and gain 4.5 points to Melbourn's 2.5.
