Dave Robs Colebrook

Dave Roberts rolled back the years to produce a masterclass of scoring in his Fawn A side's 8-3 defeat to Colebrook in the Plymouth City Superleague.

The sixteen tons Roberts ploughed in was much like the form of yesteryear that earned him a Devon County callup and is a welcomed return to something like his best. Roberts beat Steve Hiscox 3-1 in the singles with the Colebrook man throwing thirteen three figure scores and a maximum himself in vain.

Andy Bond defeated Mike Nancholas 3-2 with Bond's 118 checkout only beaten by a magnificent 130 from the latter, which was the highest across all fixtures in the league. Bond also added a maximum with Dave Clemson replying with the Greenbank team's only 180 of the contest.

Lee Doncaster was also prominent for the victors when reaching double figures in tons and was one of five singles winners for the Plympton side.

Octagon followed up their 11-0 win in a rearranged game with a 6-5 triumph over Bluebird A, which was nothing short of a game of two halves.

During first five games of the match, the Stonehouse side were their usual dominant selves as they built a commanding 4-1 lead.

That was thanks in no small part to the contributions of Lee Hellings, Neil White and Alfie Ford who added heavily to their personal ton tallies of fourteen for Hellings and White, and eleven for Ford overall.

However, the Compton team would come back in the singles; taking four of the six games played to make the score very respectable.

Bluebird's Glenn Halford had a good night personally with fourteen tons of his own; some of which helped him to a 3-1 singles win.

Halford now holds a share of a four way tie at the top of the individual table with teammate James Stoodley who hit a maximum on his way to a 3-1 singles win.

Stoodley's teammate Glenn Austin also notched a maximum of his own with Octagon's Hellings and his stablemate Fred Goldsmith replying in kind.

Alan Masters produced the highest finish of the encounter for the Bluebird A with a fine 117 finish.

Kings Arms B came away with a 7-4 win from their visit to Victory B but it was Mark Williams who was the most prominent figure in the match for the defeated side with thirteen ton plusses.

There was twelve tons for Mark Gilbery as the Victory A won a tight affair at Steampacket by a 7-4 scoreline.

George Beckett was the star of the show for the Devonport side with eleven tons overall that included a finish of 116.

Beckett also helped himself to a brace of 18 darters and Beckett's teammate Mike Connell also bagged the only maximum of the tie.

No fewer than three players chalked up eleven tons in Raffles 7-4 home win against Saltram with Danny Bull, Alec Turner and Warren Gordon achieving the feat.

Bull (27.33) was in supreme form winning his singles 3-0 thanks the help of a 15 darter, a 108 checkout, and a maximum.

Bull was joined by teammate Turner and father Eddie Bull in the maximum column; contributions that proved decisive towards the direction of the result.

Scott Cook was at his imperious best with a brace of maximums on his way to eleven tons as his Victory C team defeated the visiting Victoria 9-2.

The King Billy have put the hammer down during the last few weeks to all but see off any challengers to their dominance over this format. Scott Wapshott secured a checkout of 100 whilst Mark Yeoman and John Mann both claimed maximums on a night in which the Devonport side dropped just a single leg in an 11-0 whitewash of Fawn B.

Mann also reached double figures in three figure scores for the night, which was the most of any player in this particular match.

Kings Arms A went down 7-4 to the St Levans but still produced the most prominent moments of the match.

Mike Sant's 15 darter was the joint lowest recorded during this round of fixtures whilst Pete Dunbar took the highest shot-out honours with a 73 kill.

Clifton claimed their fourth victory of the campaign after eventually seeing off Hyde Park by a 6-5 scoreline.

Andy Pengelly took out a 72 finish for the Greenbank side whilst teammate Wayne Town also produced two 17 dart legs in his 3-0 singles win.

With the game finely poised at 5-5, it was down to Dan Jewell to step up and claimed the win with an accomplished 3-0 final game triumph.

Paul Tackle's was the only noteworthy incident in a quiet affair between Ker St and Bluebird B, with the Compton side taking the spoils 7-4.
