Billy Boyz Play Out Epic

The game of the week by some distance was between the two King Billy teams with the league leading A team coming out on top against their B team stablemates in a 7-4 win in the Steve Chapman 501 League.

The two shared one hundred and nineteen three figure scores, including no fewer than eight maximums across just eleven games.

Andrew Cook was the most prominent marksman with sixteen three figure scores whilst teammates Alec Turner and Andy Bates hit thirteen.

The next best individual total came from John Mann with twelve and the B team's Scott Wapshott claimed eleven of his own.

Antony Hayman was a sixth player to reach double figures with ten; a haul that included a maximum.

Hayman was joined by Mann and Bates in at least one 180 with Bates notching two on the evening; giving the victorious A team four for the evening.

Not to be outdone, the B team also hit four themselves with Wapshott joined by Billy Evans, Paul Gavican and Matt Chegwin in achieving the feat.

Gavican produced the shortest leg of the evening with a 14 dart leg in his 3-1 win whilst Wapshott hit 15 and 17 darters in 3-2 win over Andy Bates.

The lowest number of darts for the A team came from John Mann with a 16 in his 3-1; also adding one of four 17 dart legs for his team.

Andrew Cook hit one of these with Alec Turner notching a brace in a 3-2 singles win, whilst Matt Chegwin hit the highest checkout of the night with a fine 99 kill for the B team.

Jaden Whitting scored two of four maximums and finished with a 107 on a decent night individually for the Cornwall Youth player.

Despite this performance, and that of others in his Fawn B team, Whitting's Greenbank side still slumped to an 8-3 defeat to Victory A.

That owed much to the form of Paul Goundry who hit fourteen three figure scores, including a maximum, and ably backed up by Kelvin Rowe who notched ten of his own.

Their teammate Darren Collis also helped himself to a 17 darter; a feat that was matched by Jodie Hawton for the defeated side.

Hawton also chalked up a third maximum of the night for her side whilst stablemates both Michael O'Brien and Fred Goldsmith both reached eleven tons.

One of the tons O'Brien hit was the highest checkout of the match with a 110 finish and the Fawn marksman also added to that an 18 dart leg in his 3-0 win.

Anna Johnson was the highest scoring player for St Levans but couldn't stop her Keyham side being defeated 9-2 in their visit to Octagon.

Jayden Dodd was the most prominent scoring wise for the winners with thirteen ton plusses, including a 100 finish, whilst Lee Hellings notched ten tons of his own to keep a share of the individual lead.

Their teammate Lewis Dare was quiet by his standards but still produced an 18 dart leg and the highest finish of 110.

Hellings added a brace of 17 darters to his overall performance; a feat that was beaten by Dodd's 16 dart leg in his 3-1 singles win.

Hellings was also involved in an 18 and 27 dart 601 pairs win with Dave Pethick, which yielded a 26.71 three dart average.

Hellings further added the Octagon's only maximum of the tie with Mike Pearce and Hayley Brant firing one back each in their 20 dart doubles game.

Kings Arms came away from their trip to Torpoint Cons with a 7-4 win; owing much to the form of Glyn Wells who chalked up ten ton plusses that included a finish of 110.

That effort was beaten by one point by Lee Rodmell's 111 checkout; one of ten the Cornwall based player hit himself on the night.

Rodmell also checked a cool 15 dart leg in his 3-0 singles win whilst teammate Paul Tackle notched ten tons of his own.

Like the score, the Oreston side lead the way in the 180 stakes with Chrissie Kinnaird and Warren Gordon scoring one each and Neil Reid replying for the defeated side.

There was two maximums and eight other tons for Danny Allen as his Victory B team lost a last leg decider to the Fawn A.

Fawn stalwart Mike Nancholas notched ten tons of his own and teammate Peter Cudmore-Ray added a maximum before Dave Clemson won a last leg decider for the spoils.

After nineteen defeats on the trot, the Indian Inn finally got their first success of the season with a 7-4 win over Cherry Tree.

Despite the defeat, it was the Pennycross side who scored the only two maximums of the tie with Paul Hoare joining teammate Tony Reid in achieving the feat.
