Big Fish For Big Dave

David Roberts netted the Plymouth City Super League's first 170 checkout of the season in Fawn A's 9-2 defeat at home to Victory A.

That effort came in Roberts (29.47) 3-0 singles success that yielded a leg in 15 and a brace of 18 darts whilst the former Devon man also finished the evening with twelve ton plusses overall.

Quinton Taylor was the most prominent player for the Honicknowle side with a twelve ton haul that included a maximum whilst also winning a leg in 18 darts in his 3-0 singles win.

Taylor's teammate Mark Shears also reached the twelve ton mark for the triumphant team who now sit comfortably third in the standings due to a couple of games in hand over their rivals.

Harry Bull was at his brilliant best for Raffles with thirteen three figure scores as his team won a hard fought battle with Colebrook 7-4.

Bull had to dig in and battle for his 3-2 singles win after his opponent Kev Searle checked 97 in one visit in one of the legs he put on the scoreboard.

Bull joined teammate Alec Turner in the 180 column whilst Andy Bond chalked up the only maximum for the Plympton team.

Turner added nine more tons to reach double figures whilst Bond's stablemate Darren Smith also added ten tons of his own to the scoreboard.

Smith however was outscored by Adam Searle who reached eleven ton plusses and checked a leg in 16 darts in his 3-2 win that was one of nine ties to be won by a single leg in the eleven game match.

Glenn Austin top scored for Bluebird A as they won well in their home tie against Kings Arms A whilst Glenn Halford scored the only maximum and put away 74 for the highest finished of this encounter.

Whilst leaders King Billy had a rest due to their bye week, Octagon continued their push towards the title with a 9-2 success at Cherry Tree.

Neil White was the best performer for the favourites for the league with twelve three figure scores and won a single leg in 13 darts in his 3-0 win.

Lee Hellings (25.05) won a leg in 18 darts and notched a 180 during his 3-0 win against Nick Miller who had hit a maximum of his own earlier in the contest.

Hellings' teammate Dave Pethick was the other member of the 180 club which was one of eleven tons plundered on the night by the Octagon stalwart.

A rare moment of respite from the Stonehouse team's onslaught came in the form of a Dave Lee 3-2 singles win that was put to bed with a fine 111 checkout.

Victory C and Clifton shared five maximums between the two teams with the Greenbank team hitting the lion's hare but still ending up on the wrong end of a 9-2 defeat.

Dan Jewell hit a brace of maximums and a 15 dart leg in his 3-1 defeat to Andrew Cook who top scored for the victors with twelve tons.

One of those three figure scores was one of his team's maximums whilst teammate Paddy Archibald nailed the other in his 3-0 win.

Jewell's teammate Neil Holder played something like his brilliant best with the other maximum of the contest and hit a critical 14 dart leg in a fine 3-2 singles win.

Scott Cook (26.84) was also prominent for the Victory with winning legs of 16 and 17 darts in his 3-0 win during the individual phase.

Cook also notched the highest checkout of the contest with a 135 three dart combo whilst Ross Blake checked 96 in a single visit to the board in his 3-1 win.

The biggest winners of week 34 were the St Levans who returned from their trip to Hyde Park with a 10-1 win that was accented by Tex Pearce's twelve ton plusses.

Pearce (26.37) won his singles 3-0 with thanks to a 16 darter whilst Mike Trim and Jacob Bentham both hit maximums for the defeated team.

Bentham's maximum came in his 3-0 singles victory which also featured a finish of 100 in one visit to the board.

Steampacket had Neal Hotchkiss in good form as he racked up eleven three figure scores in his team's 7-4 win over Bluebird Bandits.

Matt Thompson (24.64) was also prominent with a 17 dart leg in his 3-0 win whilst George Beckett notched an 18 darter in his win by the same scoreline and hit the only maximum for the victors.

Thompson's 91 checkout usurped a 79 earlier in the match by Vince Scallan whilst David Victor produced the Bandits' only 180.

Pete Lamerton finished 141 in three darts in Ker St's 7-4 win over Saltram which also saw Paul Tackle in good form with a maximum and a leg in 15 in his 3-2 success.

Dave Johns top scored with ten tons for the Kings Arms B who defeated Fawn B by an 8-3 score whilst Johns' teammate Rob Oak checked 111 for the largest checkout of the match.

Kieran Harris scores the only 180 of a 7-4 defeat for Victory B against Victoria who had Steve Williams finishing from 75 for the largest finish of the matchup.
