Grange slipped ten points behind men’s Division One pace-setters Kelburne after being held 3-3 at Aberdeen.
The draw means champions Kelburne strengthened their grip on pole position with a 6-0 victory over West of Scotland rivals Hillhead at Glasgow’s National Hockey centre.
The Paisley side have an unblemished 13-match record with Grange second on 29 points and with a much poorer goal difference.
Third-placed Western are now within two points of Grange following a 5-1 canter at home to second-bottom Dundee Wanderers.
And the nightmare continues for Edinburgh-based Watsonians. They have still to register a point after 13 games following their 4-2 home reverse to Clydesdale.
