Andrew Puts Colebrook In Troubled Waters

Andrew Waters stunning fourteen ton plusses accented a 9-2 win for Victory A over Colebrook that saw Waters hit one of seven maximums between the Plymouth City Super League teams.

One of those tons was a 124 three dart combination outshot that won the contest's high checkout honours whilst Waters 3-2 singles defeat yielded legs of 18 and 16 darts.

Mark Gilbery was also prominent with twelve tons that was topped with a brace of 180s in a 32 dart 1001 doubles leg with Quinton Taylor for a single dart average of 31.28.

Gilbery (25.91) helped himself to an 18 darter in his 3-0 singles win whilst Taylor won by the same scoreline with the assistance of a leg in 15.

Those legs were bettered by teammate Mark Shears (31.98) who blew away a more than worthy opponent, the rejuvenated Steve Hiscox, 3-0 with legs of 16, 14 and 17 and hit twelve tons of his own overall.

Hiscox himself had earlier added his team's only maximum of the game whilst Shears added a brace of 180s in that tie.

Shears previously paired with Cameron Pickard (31.28) for a second 32 dart 1001 game whilst the Honicknowle team's other 180 came from Kelvin Rowe.

Raffles had Alec Turner in vintage form with fourteen three figure scores in a 9-2 win at home to Bluebird Bandits.

Turner joined teammate Tony Reid in the 180 column with Reid adding a further eleven tons to take his evening's total to twelve.

Father/son duo Harry and Danny Bull had a good personal battle for the highest checkout with Harry's 116 only beaten by Danny's 128, which was the highest of the week across all fixtures.

Harry Bull's effort was one of eleven three figure scores hit personally whilst Bandits only notable contribution to proceedings was a 180 from Dale Halford.

Richard Wheatley top scored with thirteen ton plusses but ended on the wrong end of a 9-2 drubbing as his Victory B team were roundly defeated by leaders King Billy.

Antony Hayman (27.33) reached eleven tons, including a maximum, and won his singles 3-0 with the help of legs in 16 and 18 darts.

Matt Chegwin also joined Hayman in hitting a 180 whilst Scott Wapshott's 122 checkout in his 3-0 singles win took the highest finish prize in this encounter.

Octagon gained a point on their rivals for the title with an emphatic 10-1 win over St Levans which saw Tex Pearce lead the scoring stakes for the defeated team.

Pearce's thirteen tons bested teammate and fiancée Anna Johnson who managed ten three figure scores of her own during the match.

Johnson also adding the lowest number of darts with a fine 16 dart leg in her 3-2 singles defeat bettering a 17 darter from teammate Sarah Brown.

Brown added a pair of maximums to her evening; a feat that was matched by Octagon's Lee Hellings who also reached eleven tons overall.

Hellings' stablemate Alfie Ford matched that total with eleven of his own and added a 17 dart leg in his 3-1 singles triumph.

Hellings joined Fred Goldsmith and Dave Pethick in winning in 18 darts during individual successes with Goldsmith and Pethick both notching 106 finishes in 3-1 and 3-0 wins respectively.

The aforementioned legs were usurped by a 16 dart leg from Neil White as the newly appointed Devon Chairman won 3-0 against Devon teammate Pearce.

Paul Goundry was Victory C's top scorer with twelve ton plusses in an 11-0 whitewash of Kings Arms B with two of those efforts being 180s.

Goundry was joined in the 180 column by Dan Brazier, Scott Cook, Steve Ebsworth and Paul Gavican who all notched maximums during a dominant display.

Cook (27.33) reached eleven three figure scores and won his singles 3-0 with the help of a 100 checkout and a 15 darter.

A resurgent Clifton continued their good form with an 8-3 win at Kings Arms A which saw Dan Jewell once again light up the oche with eleven three figure scores.

One of those was a 102 three dart combination finish that took the match prize for the highest finish of the night.

Despite ending on the wrong side of a defeat, Peter Down shone with a 17 dart leg in a 3-1 singles defeat whilst teammate Mike Sant threw the only maximum of the game.

Mark Sargeant and teammate Steve Dobson both claimed maximums but finished on the wrong end of a 10-1 defeat to Cherry Tree who had Bob Wood hitting one of his own.

An off night for the Steampacket saw them fall to a 7-4 defeat to Devonport neighbours Ker St by a 7-4 scoreline.

The only noteworthy contribution from both team's was a 120 checkout from Roger Bailey for the victorious visitors.

Dave Roberts was the star of an otherwise quiet affair between Fawn A and Saltram that ended in a 6-5 win for the former.

Roberts threw a brilliant three dart 115 finish and chalked up the game's only maximum before Simon Stevenson secured the win for his team with a 3-0 singles win in the final tie of the contest.

Bottom side Hyde Park were denied a second successive victory by a single point as they fell to a 6-5 loss to Victoria who had Mick Bingham finishing in one visit from 102.
