Difficult To See Cherry On Top After King Billy Defeat

An 8-3 win for fourth placed King Billy over Cherry Tree B did damage to the title hopes of the former long term leaders who now trail the top team Fawn B by ten points in the Steve Chapman 501 League.

Antony Hayman (27.83) dominated the affair with legs in 15 and 18 darts with one of his two maximums and a 131 checkout coming in a 3-0 win.

Hayman finished on ten tons overall but that wasn't the best tally of the night as Paul Gavican ended on twelve three figure scores for the defeated home side.

Gavican added to Hayman's two maximums whilst a sextet of three figure scores was topped up by Gavican's teammates Phil Hoyle and Mark Shears, as well as Hayman's stablemate Andrew Cook.

Bluebird's Jack McMinn added thirteen ton plusses but still found himself on the wrong end of a 7-4 loss against Cherry Tree C.

McMinn's teammate Alan Masters was one of four players to exactly reach the eleven ton mark with the trio of Lee Hellings, Nick Bryant and Nick Miller all adding that tally for the victorious visitors.

Those achievements were somewhat overshadowed by the finishing prowess of Steve Mills who nailed 156 at the first time of asking to take the highest checkout of the match and game week.

Victory A's 9-2 win over Beacon Park saw three men double figures in tons; the most prominent of which was Tony Tasker with thirteen efforts of one hundred or more.

Tasker's teammates Quinton Taylor and Paul Goundry both ended their night on ten tons each with Goundry's tally ticked over to that mark by one of the two maximums.

The other was claimed by Scott Lawrey whilst teammate Kelvin Rowe fired a 103 checkout to push a 94 kill by Ash Evens into second best for the match.

Jayden Dodd was Octagon's thirteen ton man but he couldn't arrest the away team's slide to a 7-4 defeat at the hands of local rivals Tradesmans.

Dodd's tally was propped up by a 108 checkout whilst teammate Chris Edgecombe heard scores of a ton or more called after throwing on ten occasions.

The leading player for the victorious home side was undoubtedly Lewis Byrne who chalked up four maximums on his way to eleven tons.

A 7-4 win for leaders Fawn B at Kings Arms saw John Mann top score with thirteen ton plusses whilst two of Mann's teammates also provided firepower.

Luke Johnson found tons on twelve occasions whilst Fred Goldsmith was also in good nick with eleven ton plusses.

Paul Palmer and Dave Johns put on most of the resistance to the reigning champions with eleven ton plusses each.

The cherry on top of Palmer's tally was two of the four 180s and a 106 checkout that was the best of the thirty-one checkouts in the matchup.

Johns added a third 180 for his team whilst Paul Hendy made it four three treble visits for the match for the home side.

Palmer might've been defeated 3-2 in the singles phase but he still managed to better Johns' 16 dart leg in his 3-0 win with a 14 darter of his own.

Mark Hatherley's eleven ton plusses lit the fire to fuel a 7-4 win for Indian Inn during their visit to Cherry Tree D that saw the away side as many as 6-1 to the good before the score line was made respectable.

Hatherley's teammate Brian Gourlay added the only 180 of the contest whilst there was two notable moments at the business end of legs.

Hatherley's 3-1 individual success was accented by a 16 darter whilst the best finish of the game came in the previous singles rubber with Martin Pearson winning 3-1 thanks in part to a 100 single visit kill.

Cherry Tree A's 6-5 win in a visit to Torpoint and Bar Mez was finally steered home by Simon Wilbraham who was took to all five legs in a 3-2 triumph that came with the scores locked at 5-5.

James Ewing provided most of the heavy artillery for the visitors with ten tons whilst the defeated home team had Mike Bulmer check a leg in 17 and Tom Full adding the only maximum.

St Levans were the big winners of week twenty with a 10-1 success that contained four maximums between the away side and Ivybridge CC.

Tex and Mike Pearce were joined by Harry MacGregor in achieving a 180 each whilst Tom Andrew added a three treble visit to Jason Bowden's 91 high checkout.

Victory Hammers and Victory Fireballs played out a classic 6-5 win that saw the lead change hands five times; the last of those coming in a Kieran Harris 3-2 singles win when playing last in the singles.

Harris' teammates James King and Cobie Harris found three treble visits for the victors on one occasion each in a game that saw seven of the eleven ties decided by a single leg.

The only moment of magic in Duchy's 9-2 loss at Fawn A came from the arm of Jordan Heath who added a maximum to his night's work.
