Octagon A hit a lot of trebles, but not enough doubles

April 20, 2019

LOCAL derbies usually bring out the best of both sides, irrespective of the sport, and the Monday Premier League fixture between Octagon A and Octagon B was no different.

 

Before this encounter, the A side were 35 points higher in the table than their stablemates, but that counted for nothing as Octagon B turned around a 3-0 deficit to win the match 6-5.

 

Octagon A hit all the trebles, putting 50 ton plus scores on the board, but it’s doubles that win matches and Octagon B hit more of them.

 

 Bill Rennie (100x14) top scored but lost 3-2 and Lee Hellings hit 100x13, three of which were 180s all thrown in his singles but once again the doubles eluded him and Steve Daley (pictured) defeated him 3-2.

 

Victory Inn A made a big statement in their quest for the league title when they defeated Cherry Tree 11-0 and now command a six-point advantage at the top of the table.

 

Keelan Kay (27.33) emerged a 3-0 winner in 17, 20 and 18 and was well supported by Gary Phillips who, aided by a leg in 15, emerged a 3-0 singles winner.

 

Second placed Steam Packet B halted Porters A’s recent good run when defeating them 7-4 in a high scoring match that saw 116 ton plus scores recorded, which included six maximums.

 

Matt Ansell hit a brace for the visitors, as did Quentin Taylor for Packet, while Neil White (100x13) was again prominent for the hosts and emerged a 3-1 winner in 17, 21, 21.

 

Maritime held a 4-1 lead on their visit to The Tradesman but could only further that score with individual wins for Dan Sheikh, which included a 15-dart leg and a 3-0 victory from Paul Palmer before winning by the narrowest of margins.

 

Mark Henley (100x11) caught the eye in Bluebird A’s 6-5 win against Victory B and there was also a good individual performance from Glenn Halford (100x15) when inspiring Prince Maurice A to a 7-4 defeat of Indian Inn A.

 

Indian Inn B recovered from an 11-0 whitewash the previous week and returned to winning ways when edging out Steam Packet A 6-5.

 

The match-winning point was salvaged by Teresa Brookshaw (100x12) despite the visitors taking an early 2-0 lead.

 

Ford Hotel defeated Hyde Park Social Club 8-3 while Plympton Cons and Firkin Scholar both won 7-4 against Porters B and City Social respectively.

 

Brewery Tap won a close encounter by the odd game of 11 away at Bluebird B and once again it was all about their talisman Antony Hayman.

 

In a 3-0 singles victory, Hayman scored three maximums, hit a finish of 118 and the also week’s highest checkout of 144.

 

Other notable finishes were achieved by: Fred Goldsmith (124), Andy Waters (120), Al Rowe (118), Alan Martin (115), Simon Washington 109.
