Trevallyn was a visitor to North Launceston who has proven no pushover.
Jeffrey Miller and Mark Jones both took handy leads into the afternoon tea break over Lachie and Michael Sims respectively, with Scott Summers' rink keeping the Thunder in with a chance over Nick Webb.
For the third week in a row, North stumbled after the break, with Jones eventually succumbing to Sims by 13.
Sean Alderson the standout here for the Thunder led from the front. Summers' rink continued on to record a 12-shot win to seal the deal while Jeffrey Miller snuck home by six to pinch two points for the home side.
Invermay travelled to play East Launceston with the winner looking to push for top spot.
Drew Berwick has been in fine touch so far this season but came up against an in-form Gene Ayton who has won his past three games on the bounce.
The two played out a see-sawing affair from the get go and eventually nothing could split them as they finished up at 25 apiece.
David Minns faced Candice Hodgetts who was coming off a big win last week.
Hodgetts' rink of Chris Lee, Debbie Lee and Jess McMullen did the hard work early and led by 12 in the latter stages of the game but the home side fought hard to pull the deficit back to four.
This allowed Aaron Page and his rink to finish the job for the Vikings as they had a huge 23-shot victory over Mark Illingworth to secure the overall result.
