Dare Force One

Lewis Dare struck thirteen ton plusses as Octagon A continued to mount a serious challenge to league leaders Tradesmans with an 11-0 whitewash of Bluebird B in the Monday Premier League.

Dare joined teammate Alfie Ford in notching a maximum with the latter doing so on his way to ten three figure scores for the evening.

Dare (28.36) also smashed through his individual game 3-0 with legs of 18 and 16 whilst Jayden Dodd also picked up a leg in 18 of his own in a dominant team display.

Stand in for the night Neil White and Lee Hellings also put their name in the 180 column as the Stonehouse team made it four for the evening.

Despite the obvious gulf in class, Wayne Oddie and Jon Parsons fired back a maximum each in vain to make it six overall in that particular score.

Octagon's title rivals Tradesmans won by the same scoreline with an 11-0 win over Union Inn that included no fewer than four ton plus finishes.

Andy Bates started the finishing heroics with a 106 kill on his way to thirteen tons before teammate Mike O'Brien checked a 105 in one visit.

However, those efforts were blown out of the water by Cornwall youth star Jaden Whitting who bagged himself a 111, which was the highest finish of the week across all games.

Dave Reed fired home the other three figure finish for the Plympton side with a 100 checkout in one visit in his 3-1 defeat to Fred Goldsmith who himself picked up ten ton plusses and the only maximum of the game.

John Mann was also prominent for the league leaders with a 15 darter and twelve ton plusses individually.

Victory B's 7-4 comeback win over Octagon B featured four players who reached double figures in tons with Paul Gavican most eye-catching thanks to thirteen scores of a ton or more.

Gavican's teammate Paul Goundry was the next beat player with twelve whilst Victory's Scott Cook and Octagon's Simon Washington both added ten of their own.

Gavican's 102 checkout was beaten by Cook's 110 to the highest of the contest prize whilst both players joined Octagon's Steve Daley in adding a maximum.

The least number of darts honours in this one went to Paddy Archibald's leg in 17 in a 3-2 defeat and the only singles the Honicknowle team lost after being 3-2 down following the team games.

Andrew Cook fired thirteen ton plusses in a 9-2 win for King Billy at Firkin Scholar that also featured a Scott Wapshott 110 finish.

Cook was his dominant best in a 3-0 singles win that featured legs of 18 and 17 whilst teammate Mark Yeoman also reached double figures in three figure scores.

Eddie Bull joined son Danny in top scoring with eleven ton plusses as Indian A defeated Bluebird C by the odd leg in eleven.

First and second in the individual race, Glenn Halford and Harry Bull, managed to avoid each other in the singles with both winning their respective games 3-0.

Halford produced ten tons for the evening whilst Bull notched a brace of 180s, a feat that was matched by father Danny Bull.

Glenn Austin took the honour of the lowest game with a leg in 18 in his 3-2 individual success that made it 5-5 before Pete Cornish used all of his experience to win the game for his team with a 3-0 success in the final tie.

Maximums and 16 darters from both Matt Nicholson and John Goodall were not enough to stop the Indian B from ending up on the wrong end of an 8-3 defeat to the Bluebird A.
