There was bitter disappointment for Vagabonds and Douglas in the South Lancashire/Cheshire leagues on Saturday.
A last minute try and conversion meant Vagabonds were pipped at home by a point by Widnes in Division One.
Douglas also tasted defeat by just a point, going down 13-12 at Trentham in Division Two.
Atty Van de Berg, Ross Pulman and Kevin Riley notched the Vagabonds tries with three conversions and a penalty from the reliable boot of Jonny Beckley but they suffered last minute heartbreak.
Castletown romped to a 60-7 victory at Emerging Nomads in the Shimmin Wilson Manx Bowl.
