Anna Bonanza Scoops High Checkout Prize

Anna Johnson's magnificent 129 three dart combination in her 3-2 singles victory during a 9-2 win for the St Levans over Kings Arms A won this week's high checkout prize in the Plymouth City Super League.

Alongside that remarkable show of darting prowess, Darren Bailey produced the only maximum of the game for the defeated Oreston side.

Mark Shears scored a wonderful league wide high of sixteen three figure scores as his Victory A team triumphed 8-3 over Steampacket.

Shears' stablemate Mark Gilbery was also in the electric form that saw him recently qualify for the finals of Worthington's Champion of Champions national competition.

Gilbery (27.33) showed his class with fourteen ton plusses and won his singles 3-0 thanks in part to a brace of 17 dart legs.

Gilbery also paired with Tom James (28.60) to produce a fine 35 dart 1001 leg in a doubles success whilst Kelvin Rowe's 69 was the highest checkout of the match.

Rowe also added eleven tons to a good evening personally and for his Honicknowle team who leapfrogged into second place thanks to this magnificent all around performance.

Of the defeated team, George Beckett was once again the shining light with legs of 14 and 18 darts in his 3-0 win whilst all the 180s went to the visitors also.

Matt Thompson top scored with fourteen tons for the defeated team, including a 180, whilst Phil Taylor and Marc Webber struck the others.

Dan Brazier was the main protagonist with thirteen three figure scores in Victory C's 7-4 win at Victoria that also saw teammate Scott Cook check in one visit to the board from 80.

Paul Gavican also showed his scoring prowess with the only maximum of a game that saw the visitors go 2-0 up and 3-2 down before reeling off five singles in a row to put the game beyond the Plymstock team.

Steve Hiscox returned to the oche after a short break and showed no signs of rustiness with eleven tons in a 10-1 win for Colebrook over Fawn A.

Hiscox' fine form saw him defeat former PDC Tour Card holder Simon Stevenson 3-2 in the singles whilst teammates Lee Doncaster and Adam Searle helped themselves to a 78 checkout and maximum respectively.

Wayne Oddie's ton tally of eleven was unrivalled in Bluebird Bandits 6-5 home defeat to Ker St that saw teammates Dale Halford and Jamie Roberts both put their name in the 180 column.

Shane Victor also added a big finish of 117 before Pete Lamerton held his nerve in the final matchup of the contest to give the Devonport team the spoils of a good battle.

Clifton continued their brilliant recent form with four 180s; on of which was scored by Kevin Seal who reached eleven tons in total for the evening in their 8-3 win over Hyde Park.

Wayne Town notched a brace of maximums and won a leg in 18 in his 3-0 singles success whilst Andy Pengelly threw the other.

Dan Jewell continued the form that's got him being talked about with a 17 darter in his 3-0 individual triumph and added the highest checkout of the evening; a fine 91 kill.

Despite ending on the wrong end of another defeat, Ben Welsh managed a maximum and was one of only two winners for the league's bottom team.

Alfie Ford reached ten ton plusses but was helpless to stop his Octagon team slip to a surprise home defeat to Bluebird A.

The entertaining contest started with a win for the Stonehouse team before the visitors reeled off four of the next five in a spell that saw James Stoodley check 98 in a doubles win.

The tail end of that dominant period saw Glenn Halford win 3-0 with legs of 17 and 18 darts to put his team on the brink of success.

Fred Goldsmith notched a leg in 16 in his 3-0 win before Stoodley (24.64) repeated the feat alongside a maximum to give the Compton team a good win.

Alan Masters hit his team's second maximum in a 3-1 defeat to Ford in the penultimate game before Neil White showed his undoubted class with a 180 and an 18 darter in his 3-0 win to limit the damage to a title push.

Leaders King Billy almost took full advantage of that slip with a 10-1 win over Fawn B that saw the game's two maximums coming from Scott Wapshott and Paul Palmer.

Talisman Antony Hayman checked the game high finish of 88 kill and also won a leg in 17 in his 3-0 individuals win; one of five to achieve the same singles score as only three legs were dropped all night.

Mark Williams top scored with ten tons in Victory B's 7-4 defeat to Kings Arms B that also saw teammate Adam Truscott checkout at the first time of asking from 96.

Saltram and Raffles shared a pair of maximums in a 7-4 win for the visitors from Mutley with Alec Turner striking for the visitors.

Turner also won a leg in 16 darts - the lowest of the match - in his 3-2 win over Warren Gordon who finished in one visit from 70 during the contest.

Gordon's teammate Dave Algar added his team's maximum in a 3-0 singles win but was only one of two winners for his team during the individual phase of play.
