Danny Too Canny For Fawn A

Danny Allen reached fifteen three figure scores as his Victory B team won a topsy-turvy battle with Fawn A for only their fifth success of the Steve Chapman 501 League campaign.

Included in that haul was a 103 checkout whilst Allen was ably supported by Kieran Harris who hit two maximums on his way to eleven tons for the victors.

Tex Pearce fired the highest of four ton plus finishes, a 138 kill, which aided him to a fifteen ton plus haul in St Levans' 8-3 defeat against Octagon.

Pearce (27.83) also chalked up legs of 15 and 18 darts in his 3-0 singles win whilst brother and teammate Mike Pearce reached ten ton plusses.

That effort was a little in vein though due to the form of Alfie Ford who hit a 17 darter in a 3-1 win against the Devon Captain and top scored for the Stonehouse team with twelve tons.

Ford's teammate Dave Pethick hit a 100 checkout that was usurped by Jayden Dodd's 102 in one visit, which was one of ten tons Dodd ploughed in personally.

Lee Hellings was also prominent for the Octagon with a maximum and a 121 finish in a 15 dart 601 game with Lewis Dare that yielded a remarkable 120.2 three dart average.

That win, coupled with the King Billy B's 8-3 defeat in the King Billy derby against league leaders King Billy A, puts Octagon in a decent position to claim runners up with five point lead over their rivals.

The A team were at their dominant best as John Mann and Antony Hayman ploughed in three of four 180s on the night; Hayman with the lion's share.

Hayman also hit one more ton than his stablemate and sparring partner Mann with the former Devon and Cornwall county player hitting fourteen ton plusses to Mann's thirteen.

One of those tons was a game high checkout of 117 from Hayman whilst Mann finished legs in 18 and 16 darts in a 3-1 win over Devon teammate Mark Shears, who hit the only maximum of a difficult night for the B team.

Despite being wildly outclassed in the points stakes, Scott Wapshott reached eleven tons and Paul Gavican joined Shears in hitting double figures to show their metal.

Lee Agar threw eleven ton plusses as the Fawn B took a 4-0 and 5-1 lead over Victory A with their only point coming from a 2-0 pairs win from Scott Lawrey and Kelvin Rowe (40.07) that saw a 15 dart 601 leg.

A 129 outshot in that game was one of eleven three figure scores Lawrey hit in the match and the effort outdid a 120 checkout from the Greenbank team's Mike O'Brien.

After being as many as 5-1 down, the Victory A reeled off four 3-1 singles wins in a row in a spell that saw Quinton Taylor hit a 15 dart leg and a brace of maximums.

With the score locked at 5-5, Kelvin Rowe hit a maximum before succumbing to an in form Jodie Hawton 3-0 to give the Fawn B the spoils 6-5.

Paul Palmer hit a brace of maximums on his way to eleven ton plusses as the King Arms beat Torpoint Cons by an 8-3 scoreline whilst Tom Full was the Cornwall based team's highest scorer with ten tons.

Cherry Tree claimed the win in the league's battle of the bottom two in similar circumstances with the Indian taking a 1-0 lead before the Pennycross team hit back with five in a row for a 5-1 lead.

That spell was rounded off by a 3-0 win by Dave Lee in which he finished one leg in 18 darts to put his team in a commanding position.

Indian then hit back with four straight singles with Mark Hatherley hitting a maximum and Louis Yates notching the highest checkout of the tie; a 116 finish to force a last game decider.

Spectators were treated to a last leg decider which youngster Frankie Stout won 3-2 with the help of a maximum to give his team a fifth win of the campaign so far.
