Cons A take advantage of depleted fixtures to go 2nd
THE start of the Devon Open on the same night reduced the Plymouth City Super League fixtures to just seven matches but Plympton Cons A took full advantage to move up into second spot.
They defeated Ker St Social Club 8-3, buoyed by an excellent showing in the individual phases by Dave Collins (pictured below), when he emerged a 3-0 winner in 17, 18 and 16 for a single dart average of 29.47.
Ships Tavern came from 2-0 down to edge out Plympton Cons B when, with the scoreline evenly poised at 5-5, Paul Carpenter clinched the deciding 11th point when defeating Henry Cooper 3-1.
Maritime C overcame Victoria 8-3 and had young Frankie Stout winning 3-1, aided by a checkout of 106, but his mark for the week’s best was beaten by Mark Cresswell.
The Staddy marksman made a kill of 116 in The Staddy’s 8-3 victory away at The Fawn while consistent performances also came from his team-mate Tony Gordon (100x13) with Mike Nancholas (100x13) replying for The Fawn.
The Albemarle were the only team to win in double figures when restricting The Clifton to a single point while also winning on the road were The Bluebird, who returned from Cherry Tree with an 8-3 success.
It was a much closer affair at Oreston though and it came down to the last singles of the match, which also went the full distance, when Tony Lamerton emerged a 3-2 winner over Paul Hendy to give Tradesman their victory.
