Hey, Good Cook-in'

Andrew Cook bagged himself a mammoth eighteen ton plus haul that included this game's only maximum during an 11-0 Steve Chapman 501 League success over Ivybridge CC.

Cook (30.67) nailed legs in 16 and 14 darts when blowing away his opponent during a 3-0 individual triumph that was one of four of it's kind.

John Mann (30.67) romped home to a 3-0 win during an 8-3 win for title holders, and now overwhelming favourites for the championship, Fawn B at the Victory.

Mann's individual win came with the help of the only two maximums in the match whilst his 106 in the same stage helped ticked his ton tally over to the twelve mark.

The biggest contributor of tons in the match was Fred Goldsmith who added seventeen scores of a ton or more.

Teammates Andy Bates and Simon Washington both finished the dominant win with twelve tons whilst Luke Johnson's night ended on an eleven ton tally.

A 115 checkout by Washington was the second best of three ton plus finishes in the match as Paul Goundry checked an 18 dart leg in a 3-1 defeat to Bates with a 126 combination.

Washington added an 18 darter of his own to defeat Scott Lawrey 3-2; the latter finishing his night as the defeated team's top scorer with eleven tons.

Another matchup that went the distance was dominated by legs in 16 and 14 darts by Goldsmith who got over the line 3-2 against Kelvin Rowe.

Over the 601 doubles distance, Mann teamed well with Lee Agar to net an 18 dart leg during one of three pairs games that ended 2-0.

St Levans fell to a 6-5 loss at the hands of a talented Tradesmans, but not before Tex Pearce (27.33) could provide a gem of a performance for the defeated team.

Pearce was a 3-0 winner thanks to legs in 17 and 18 darts as well as a 116 checkout that contributed to a twelve ton personal tally.

Pearce also teamed with his brother Mike to claim a 601 leg in just 18 darts before Mike Pearce ended his night with ten tons and two of the six 180s in the match to go alongside a 17 darter in a 3-1 loss to Jordan Grimshaw.

Grimshaw nailed a 17 darter of his own to take the notable scalp of the long serving Devon stalwart whilst teammate Rob May heard '180' called three times after throwing.

Mitch Grimshaw was a 3-0 winner with a 17 darter that matched Jordan Grimshaw's effort and sat nicely with his 98 checkout in that win which contributed to leaving the score tied at 5-5 going into a Lewis Byrne singles.

Byrne showed his undoubted class when running out a 3-0 winner with Byrne's maximum in that tie adding to an impressive total of eleven tons.

Jayden Dodd's sixteen three figure scores lit up Octagon's 8-3 home triumph over Bar Mez with Dodd's best effort a 122 three dart combination out shot.

That Dodd checkout was blown away by a 148 by teammate Alfie Ford who added that finish to his eleven tons totalled over the contest.

Ford also got the better of his teammate in the least number of darts stakes as a Ford 17 darter in his 3-1 win bettered a leg in 18 from Dodd during another success that went to four legs.

The moment of magic provided by the visitors from Torpoint was from the arm of Kev Dudbridge who nailed the only maximum of the game.

Cherry Tree B's dwindling title credentials were severely dented in a Cherry Tree derby match as the C team bagged a 6-5 win over their local rivals.

James Hughes top scored for the defeated team with thirteen tons that included a 135 high checkout that was the best of a trio of three figure out shots.

Jason Pinkerton's 116 finish pushed a 106 by Mark Shears into third place in the finishing stakes whilst the former ended the contest on ten tons for the defeated team.

Pinkerton and Shears' teammates Mike Whatley and Scott Wapshott both contributed heavily to a high class affair with ten tons each.

Wapshott's tally was propped up by two of the five maximums in the game as Steve Mills, Nick Bryant and Dave Lee all added 180s of their own for the successful side.

Mills' three treble visit helped him to eleven three figure scores whilst Bryant finish on ten and another eleven ton hitter for the 'home' team for the night was Lee Hellings.

Lee was defeated 3-1 by Whatley despite a 17 dart leg before Bryant ran out a 3-0 winner thanks in part to a 17 darter of his own.

A battle of two of Plymouth's heavyweights in darting terms went the way of Shears in a 3-1 win over Hellings that contained a leg in 15 from the victor.

Mike Bassett and Mark Hempsall both added maximums on their way to eleven tons apiece during an 8-3 home defeat for Fawn A against Kings Arms.

The home side dominated the scoring phase with Mark Sargeant and Dave Barton both reaching ten tons whilst Liam Taylor made it three maximums for his team to the visitors two.

Mark Yeoman and Dave Johns were the 180 hitters for the victors whilst Taylor's 154 checkout was the best finish of the game week across all fixtures.

That effort came in a 3-2 individual loss that also saw Taylor win a leg in 15 darts whilst Hempsall's 109 three dart combination out shot had to settle for second best in the match overall.

Checkouts of 108 and 98 by Jacob Bentham and Kev Lofthouse respectively couldn't arrest Cherry Tree D's slide to a 6-5 derby defeat against Cherry Tree A.

Teammate Martin Pearson added the only 180 before Simon Wilbraham was the hero of the hour for the designated home side with a 3-0 win in the final tie of a match that was tied at 5-5 going into Wilbraham's win.

A second win of the campaign from Duchy came with the help of a Jordan Heath maximum in a 6-5 success over Victory Hammers whilst Victory Fireballs fell to a 6-5 defeat against Bluebird.
