Kieran Puts On After-Burn-ers

If St Johnston A do finally fold in the Plymouth & District Friday Darts League title race, it'll have nothing to do with the form of Kieran Burns who was once again prominent in an 11-2 win over Grenville.

Burns (27.81) plundered no less than fifteen three figure scores and helped himself to a 36 dart 1001 game in his singles.

Burns also teamed with Andy Downton and Glyn Wells (25.67) for a 39 dart trebles game whilst Wells also involved in another 1001 game in the mid-thirties.

Wells paired with Kevin Evans for the lowest number of darts for the week across the entire league; a 35 dart leg which yielded an average of 28.60 per thrown.

Wells also notched a maximum in the aforementioned game and finished the highest checkout of the match with a fine 70 kill in one visit.

The result leaves St Johnston A three off the lead knowing leaders Tradesmans A can now win the league with at least an 11-2 victory in their rearranged game against King Billy.

However, that margin of victory required will come down with every point dropped by St Johnston A in their final tie with Kings Tamerton that is played a week before the top team.

Simon Washington was once again the talisman for Octagon with eleven three figure scores as they won 8-5 against Steampacket.

Washington (26.34) also won his individual game in a fine 38 darts whilst Steve Daley took the game high checkout honours with an 82 finish.

Ker St notched their eighth success of the campaign thanks to a 7-6 win over Pennycross in which Al Jones (26.34) chalked up a leg in 38.

Lee Gilliard's 85 checkout for the defeated team came before a last leg salvo from Andy Newnham which gave the Devonport team the spoils.

Winners by an 8-5 scoreline were King Billy against Tradesmans B as Andrew Nation top scored with ten ton plusses whilst Tony Lamerton was the scorer of the only maximum of the game for the visiting losing team.

Nation's teammate John Abbott checked 104 in one visit for the highest checkout but had to settle for second place across all fixtures as Richard Lynch took out a fine 115 in Kings Tamerton's 7-6 win over Queens Arms.

Matty Searle was Kings Tamerton's hero as he won a last leg decider to give his team a win that may prove vital in their quest for third spot in the standings.

Mainstone and St Johnston B played out another close battle as Del Bryce hit the only maximum for the Keyham team before Vern Lavers gave Mainstone the 7-6 win in a third last leg decider across all fixtures.
