Lee Ton Spree Ends In Defeat
Lee Rodmell notched sixteen three figure scores and a 16 dart leg during Torpoint Cons 8-3 defeat at home to St Levans in the Steve Chapman 501 League.
Even with that mammoth ton haul which included a maximum, Rodmell still ended up on the wrong end of a 3-2 defeat to Hayley Brant who reached eleven tons of her own.
Tex Pearce top scored for the victors with thirteen ton plusses and won his 3-2 singles success with thanks to legs in 18,17,15.
Rodmell's teammate Paul Tackle helped himself to a second 180 for the Cornwall team on his way to ten tons and added a 14 darter in a hard fought 3-1 singles win.
That win was over Devon man Shaun Dring who checked out in 18 darts in the sole individuals leg he won.
However, earlier in the contest, Dring managed the highest checkout of the week across all fixtures with a fine 156 kill.
That effort beat teammate Tex Pearce's 121 checkout whilst Tex's brother Mike added eleven tons including his team's only maximum of the tie.
Mike Pearce was also in vintage form during his 3-0 individual win with winning legs of 17 and 15 darts for the successful Keyham team.
The King Billy A lead at the top is now sixty-four points after a 7-4 victory over runner-up chasing Octagon at home.
John Mann was at his brilliant best with fifteen three figure scores, including a maximum, and a 15 dart leg in a 3-2 win over Lewis Dare who notched a brace of 180s on his way to ten tons.
Antony Hayman chalked up the other maximum of the contest and added a 15 dart leg in his 3-1 singles win for the Devonport team.
Andrew Cook was also prominent for the champions elect with twelve tons whilst Lee Hellings top scored for the defeated Stonehouse team with fourteen ton plusses.
Hellings also bagged a 17 dart leg in his 3-2 individual win whilst the highest checkout of the contest was an 85 from Hellings' teammate Dave Pethick.
That defeat for Octagon allowed Fawn B to take second spot after they trounced rivals for second place King Billy B 9-2.
Despite the defeat, the 'Billy Boyz' did manage to outscore their opponents in the 180 stakes with Scott Wapshott grabbing a brace.
Wapshott's Mark Shears and Billy Evans both added one each whilst Mike O'Brien and Neil White struck for the victorious Greenbank team.
Another team still in the hunt for second spot in the standings, Victory A, managed to take all points on offer in their 11-0 win over Indian Inn.
Darren Collis chalked up two 180s whilst teammates Kelvin Rowe and Scott Lawrey scored one each for the Honicknowle side.
Mike Beale was the only noteworthy contributor for the defeated Stoke side with a maximum and a 14 dart leg in his 3-1 singles defeat.
Paul Palmer was the star of the show for Kings Arms with ten tons in their 10-1 win over Victory B that saw him also hit a maximum and a 120 checkout.
Chrissie Kinnaird repeated Palmer's finishing feat with a 120 three dart combo of her own whilst Cleo Trelease's 180 was a bright spark in an otherwise disappointing night for the defeated visitors.
A battle between two teams languishing in the bottom four saw bottom side Cherry Tree regain touch with the rest thanks to five points in a 6-5 defeat to Fawn A.
