Flash Scoring From Hatherley
Outright individual leader Mark Hatherley top scored with eleven ton plusses in his Indian team's 9-4 win over Tradesman's B the Plymouth & District Friday Darts League.
Teammate Stephen Hopley (24.41) won his 1001 individual game in an admirable 41 darts, which was the lowest of a match where the Stoke side went as many as 6-1 up before sharing the singles. St Johnston A took all points on offer at home to Steampacket to keep the pressure up on their title rivals. Kieran Burns finished with a fine 106 checkout for the Keyham side whilst Shaun Williams and Andrew Downton won their 1001 doubles game in 35 darts for a 28.60 average.
Burns was joined in the 180 column by the evergreen Glyn Wells in a great night for the title chasers.
Ker Street got the better of Grenville in the battle of the bottom two in the league with the Devonport side coming out on top by an 8-5 scoreline.
Wayne Hobbs chalked the only 180 of the match whilst Harry Harrison was clinical in his singles with a finish of 100.
League leaders Tradesmans A won 11-2 at St Johnston B but despite being outplayed for large swathes of the match, it was the Keyham side's marksman, Sean Taylor, who produced the highest checkout with a fine 106.
That effort was beaten though by Collin Lynch who chalked up a fine 118 in his Kings Tamerton team's 9-4 win at home to Mainstone.
Lynch's teammate John Brownlow also notched the only maximum of the match in a fine night for his team who sit bottom of an extremely congested mid table between fourth and eleventh.
A 1001 leg in 42 darts by Simon Washington (23.83) was the highlight of Octagon's trip to King Billy in which they ended up on the wrong end of an 8-5 defeat.
