Runners-up Tramways were involved in a close-fought tie at Flag & Whistle, whose Toni Smallwood gamed in 22 darts with the help of a 180.
Tramways’ Jo Hodges then fired a maximum in the pairs with Ruth Norman, and her side secured a 7-4 win.
Slipper captain Doreen Johnstone led from the front with a 24-dart leg, while Vicky Middleton hit 123 and 118, but Clifton still ran out 9-2 victors.
Castle Howard Ox ‘A’ won by the same scoreline against Bootham Club, while Burnholme’s Kate Liddle Howden’s win denied Five Lions a clean sweep.
Cueball ‘A’ lost 7-4 at home to Crystal Palace but that was enough to secure the division two title.
