Mike Abundantly Pearces The Treble Twenty Bed

Mike Pearce showed why he is one of the most revered darting talents in Devon with a huge eighteen ton plus haul in St Levans 10-1 win over Victory B in the Steve Chapman 501 League.

Amongst the barrage of ton plusses from Pearce was checkouts of 120 and 101, as well as his team's only maximum in the game.

Pearce had to work hard for his 3-2 singles win with winning legs of 18 and a brace of 15 darters whilst opponent Danny Allen chalked up a leg in 14 and a 180 of his own whilst also reaching eleven ton plusses.

Pearce's 120 checkout was outdone by brother Tex who checked the highest finish of the week across all fixtures; a fine 152 finish in a single visit to the board.

Tex Pearce also added ten more three figure scores to reach eleven and had a 17 dart leg in his 3-0 individual success.

The Pearce brothers' teammate Shaun Dring was another who had to work hard for his 3-2 win in the singles and reached eleven ton plusses of his own across the contest as a whole.

The Honicknowle team's only winner, Ryan Harris, chalked up a second maximum for his team as well as an 18 dart leg in a 3-1 win in the final tie of the match.

Leaders King Billy A have increased their formidable lead to sixty points after a 9-2 win over Torpoint Cons.

Antony Hayman was in remarkable form for the champions elect with seventeen ton plusses overall being a league wide high for this round of fixtures.

Hayman (29.47) also won his individual game 3-0 with legs of 14 and 17 whilst teammate John Mann also helped himself to a 17 darter in his win by the same scoreline.

Hayman joined teammates Andrew and Scott Cook in hitting a maximum whilst the King Billy stalwart's 100 checkout was only better in the match by Alec Turner's 112 kill in three.

Fred Goldsmith joint top scored for Fawn B as they defeated rivals for second placed in the league, Octagon, by a score of 9-2.

Jaden Whitting joined his counterpart Goldsmith in reaching the thirteen ton mark whilst both Lee Agar and Mike O'Brien also reach twelve tons each.

Whitting (27.83) showed the undoubted class that's made him one of the best young players in the South West when taking legs in 18 and 17 darts on his way to a fine 3-0 win that included his team's only 180.

O'Brien repeated Whitting's heroics with 17 and 18 darters of his own in his 3-1 win whilst Agar went one better with a leg in 16 darts in his 3-1 win.

James Ewing's 103 checkout was usurped by Agar's 121 checkout early on in the contest, which helped the Greenbank team make a roaring start.

Despite ending on the wrong side of a tanking, Alfie Ford was still his usual consistent self with thirteen three figure scores, including a maximum.

Dave Pethick was also prominent with eleven tons and maximum for the Stonehouse side who may consider themselves a little unlucky considering six of the eleven ties were decided by a single leg.

That slip by Octagon allowed King Billy B to retake second spot in the table with Paul Gavican and Matt Chegwin both reaching the thirteen ton mark in an 8-3 win over Indian Inn.

Mark Shears and Chegwin both helped themselves to 17 dart legs in their singles wins whilst Gavican notched a 16 darter in a 3-2 win over Chris Beale who threw the Stoke village side's only maximum.

Shears also bagged himself a brace of 180s whilst Billy Evans chalked up the highest checkout of the tie; a 77 kill in one visit to the board.

Marc Webber was in decent form for the Cherry Tree with twelve tons, including a maximum, as well as a 16 dart leg in his 3-1 individual win.

However, his efforts could not stop Victory A inflicting a 10-1 loss on the league's bottom side thanks in part to two ton plus finishes.

Kelvin Rowe produced a 111 kill in three darts whilst Paul Goundry went better with a 116 and Darren Collis was the highest scoring player for the victors with ten ton plusses overall.

Glyn Wells helped himself to eleven ton plusses, including a game high checkout of 120, in Kings Arms 10-1 win over Fawn B.

That finish from the veteran was crucial in a 3-2 win over Dave Clemson who hit two 180s to no avail in their individual tie.

Wells' teammate Paul Hendy also notched a brace of maximums on the night in a good night for the Oreston team.
