Lancaster kept up their unbeaten start to the Super League season with a 5-5 draw at home to Todmorden.

A clash of dates with a national Squires match meant the hosts were unable to field their strongest team but first up Matthew Raby made short work of Jordan Eaton, then David Coulton did likewise against Mark Cheatham.

Stand-in captain Chris Dean then accounted for Dan Crampton to make it nine legs without reply.

Lewis Ireland went down 3-1 before Joe Singleton found Dave Evans in fine form with legs of 17, 17 and 19 darts.

Jamie Cassidy got Lancaster 4-2 up with a 3-2 win but Billy Kirkby and Michael Gladstone, on debut, lost to make it 4-4.

Jordan Robson then gained a bonus point for Lancaster with a masterclass of darts hitting eight ton-plus scores including a 180.

Graham Rawes lost in the final game as things ended all square.
