32 And Out For King Billy A

Runaway leaders King Billy A suffered their first defeat of the Steve Chapman 501 League season after a 7-4 home defeat to the Fawn B.

The Greenbank team were good value for the victory after beating the leaders 4-2 in the singles and 3-2 in the team games; largely thanks to the performances of Neil White and Lee Agar.

White and Agar hit thirteen and eleven ton plusses on the night and both joined Jaden Whitting in chalking up a maximum.

White and Whitting paired up to win their doubles game 2-1 with legs of 17 and 20 over the 601 distance to give them a remarkable winning leg three dart average of 97.46 per throw.

White also finished his night with a game high 120 checkout and his 18 darter in a 3-0 singles win was only beaten by teammate Agar's leg in 17 in a 3-1 success.

Whilst the Devonport team were roundly beaten, John Mann still performed admirably with a sixteen ton haul, including a maximum.

Antony Hayman also joined his stablemate in the maximum column whilst Alec Turner notched himself a 110 checkout in a 3-2 singles defeat to Fred Goldsmith.

Lewis Dare smashed in three maximums on his way to ten ton plusses in Octagon's 9-2 win over Victory B with the youngster also adding a 17 darter in a 3-0 singles win.

Ralph Lancaster top scored for the Stonehouse side with twelve ton plusses whilst Dave Pethick was also prominent with eleven of his own and took a leg in 14 darts in a 3-2 win.

Jayden Dodd was a fourth member of the team to reach double figures in tons on a good night for the second placed team in the standings.

Four behind the Octagon are the King Billy B after a 10-1 win at Fawn A which saw all three of Scott Wapshott, Mark Shears and Paul Gavican notch 180s.

That effort enabled Shears to reach ten tons whilst he added an 18 dart leg to an effort in 17 during a 3-1 singles triumph.

Gavican also added a 17 darter of his own in a 3-1 individual success whilst the highest checkout went to Wapshott's 82 kill.

Brother Tex and Mike Pearce were the aggressors in St Levans 8-3 win at Indian with thirteen and eleven three figure scores being ploughed in respectively.

Mike Pearce's haul was accented by finishes of 120 and 149 with the latter being the highest checkout of the week in a 16 dart leg during a 3-0 win.

One of the three points won by the Stoke village side came via a magical 601 double games from Mark Hatherley and Ian Heggie (36.42) that was won 2-0 in 19 and 14 darts.

The 14 dart game (180,140,100,123,58) was started with a maximum from Hatherley that contributed one of eleven three figure scores on the night.

Hatherley also produced a 17 dart leg in his 3-0 singles triumph with the third point coming from Heggie's individual win also by a 3-0 scoreline.

Eleven tons from Warren Gordon wasn't enough to stop the Kings Arms being downed by Victory A with Quinton Taylor most prominent for the Honicknowle team with ten three figure scores.

Tony Tasker and teammate Kelvin Rowe were also prominent for the Victory with a 124 checkout and maximum respectively.

A 107 checkout from Paul Hoare was the main point of interest from Cherry Tree's 6-5 defeat to Torpoint Cons.

The bottom team were 3-1 and 4-2 up before being pegged back as Scott Town won the final tie of the night 3-0 to give the Cornish visitors the spoils.
