Handy Scoring By Andy

Andy Bates produced fourteen ton plusses, including two maximums, as the King Billy extended their lead at the top to a likely unassailable nineteen points thanks to a 9-2 win over King Arms B in the Plymouth City Superleague

Bates was ably assisted by Antony Hayman who chalked up eleven three figure scores whilst teammates Paul Palmer and Kev Lofthouse contributed a maximum and 94 checkout respectively.

The defeated Oreston side may feel slightly aggrieved that they didn't come away with more having shared the first four encounters, as well as pushing two singles to a deciding leg; losing both.

This performance was largely down to the form of Paul Carpenter who notched ten tons himself during the contest overall.

Victory C came away from their home match with Bluebird B with a 7-4 win; a result that owed much to the form of Scott Cook who scored thirteen ton plusses.

No fewer than four players for the Honicknowle based side put 180s on the scoreboard with Darren Collis, Paddy Archibald and Paul Gavican joining Cook in the feat.

Their teammate Paul Goundry also hit a 102 checkout but that effort was beaten by Callum Strickson's 116 finish in an 18 dart singles leg for the highest finish and least number of darts recorded in the game.

Glenn Halford and James Stoodley are still both locked together at the top of the singles table after both winning in their Bluebird A side's 9-2 win over Clifton.

Both were impressive in fits and starts with Halford hitting twelve ton plusses and Stoodley notching a 16 darter in his 3-0 win.

Halford also claimed one of two maximums for his Compton team with Kev Rice hitting the other.

Despite the difficult night, Wayne Town impressed for the losing side from Greenbank with a 110 finish in his 3-0 singles win.

Colebrook Inn got their eleventh win of the campaign as they came away from their trip to Kings Arms A with a 9-2 win.

Star of the show for the Plympton side was Steve Hiscox as he ploughed in ten tons and a 70 finish, whilst Andy Bond also notched an 18 darter in his 3-1 individual defeat.

Bond was one of two players to score 180s on the night with Mike Sant firing back for the Oreston side.

Sant's teammate Pete Dunbar also added a 90 checkout, which was the highest of the match.

Richard Wheatley continued his impressive individual form of late with ten scores of a ton or more but his Victory B team still ended up on the wrong end of a 6-5 defeat at Ker St.

The visitors were as many as 5-1 up before Ker St rallied to claim five singles in a row for the win, which was contributed to by Paul Lamerton's finishes of 78 and 86.

Ralph Lancaster won a leg in 17 in his 3-2 win before Fred Lamerton held his nerve in the final tie of the night to give the Devonport side the spoils.

Lee Dennis brought about the only eye-catching moment of the Hyde Park's 8-3 defeat to Saltram as he scored in the only 180 of the match.

Steampacket continued their excellent winning form with a 9-2 win over St Levans with the highlight of this one being an 80 finish by Matt Thompson.

Gary Eaton's ten ton haul wasn't enough to stop his Victoria team from going down 8-3 in their visit to Cherry Tree.

Dave Lee added a 90 checkout in the final of five singles successes, which allowed the Pennycross side to climbed above the team they defeated in the standings.
