City Social B lost their 100 per cent record when they ended up on the wrong end of a 6-5 scoreline at Maritime Social Club.
The hosts trailed 4-1 but put in some exceptional performances in the individual phases to win by the narrowest of margins.
In contrast, at the other end of the table, Saltram Social Club secured their first success when edging out Indian Inn by the odd game when Mike Sant won the 11th and decisive point.
Reg Matthews (100x12) top scored for the winners while best for Indian was Rhys Yates who hit two 17-darters in a 3-1 victory.
Kings Arms overcame Ker St Social Club 6-5 in another close encounter, inspired by Bruce Harrison (100x15) who beat Craig Hillary 3-2 in 17, 16 and 22.
Octagon Social Club A had Alfie Ford notching a 15-dart leg in a 3-0 win as they returned from Porters A with an 8-3 victory while St Levan Inn edged out Porters B 6-5.
Porters C are only four points off the pace in fourth spot after an 8-3 victory at Octagon B and were buoyed by Rob May's highest checkout of the week with a mark of 142.
Also hitting a three-figure finish was Antony Hayman (Porters B) 130, Dave Roberts (The Fawn) 114, Ralph Lancaster (Ker St) 111.
PLYMOUTH CITY SUPER LEAGUE
IN ONLY the third week of the new campaign, Ray Tucknott set the mark for the season's highest checkout when he finished at the first time of asking from 170.
The feat came in Archer Inn's 11-2 defeat of Plympton RBL, a victory which puts them in second place just two points behind the leaders.
City Social C remain in pole position after beating Plympton Cons A 9-4 in a disappointing low key fixture between two teams who were pre-season favourites to vie for the title.
Maxines made a good recovery at Kings Arms B and maintained their unbeaten start when they came from 6-2 down to win by the odd game of 13.
Malcolm Johns impressed with an outshot of 137, helping Grenville B to an 8-5 win at Hyde Park while Paul Wills checked out from 104 in Tap & Barrel's 11-2 victory at Grenville A.
Fred Goldsmith caught the eye when making a kill of 118 as The Windmill triumphed 8-5 against Octagon, the same winning scoreline that City Social A achieved when hosting Plympton Cons B.
Al Rowe took out a finish of 112 for the winners while Steve Hiscox replied with 106.
St Levan Inn overcame The Elburton 11-2 while The Fawn and Compton both won 8-5 against Kings Arms A and Ker St respectively.
MONDAY PREMIER LEAGUE
INDIAN Inn A were the week's biggest winners and the only team to win in double figures inflicting on Porters A an 11-0 whitewash.
The victory puts them in joint second spot, six points behind leaders City Social who won 9-2 at St Johnston B and had Rob May (100x15) as their leading marksman.
