Ring Pings Remarkable Game
Ryan Ring (30.33) produced a stunning 33 dart leg in his individual success for the King Billy during their 9-4 win over St Johnston B in the Plymouth & District Friday Darts League.
Ring recovered from a slow start to produce a 105.11 three dart average across nine visits, which included one of two maximums his team hit on the night, and a finish of 119.
Ring's teammate Andrew Nation chalked up the other three treble twenty visit of the match whilst Nation joined Matt Abbott in achieving ten ton plusses for the evening.
Ring dedicated the win to the late, great Gary Phillips who would've celebrated his 54th birthday on the same day if he hadn't passed during 2021.
Mike O'Brien (26.34) finished a 1001 leg in 38 darts as the leaders Tradesmans won 11-2 over Ker St; a loss that roots the Devonport side to the foot of the table.
O'Brien scored the only maximum of the contest whilst teammate Nick Dodd chalked up a fine 129 checkout for the highest of the week in a win that leaves the leaders sixteen clear.
There were three standout players for the Steampacket as they won 8-3 over Pennycross with the most prominent of those being Gareth Hockings who scored ten ton plusses.
Teammate David Young checked an 83 finish which was beaten by Jan Lamerton's 117 finish on a fine night for the home team.
Individual leader Mark Hatherley (28.60) notched himself a 35 darter in his 1001 singles, which was aided by part of an eleven ton haul.
However, that wasn't enough to stop his Indian Inn team ending up on the wrong end of an 8-5 defeat to Queen Arms in which Steve Harris checked out from 125 for a fine three dart combo.
As many as three maximums were shared between the two sides as Kings Tamerton won by the odd leg in thirteen over their Mainstone rivals.
Ian Collins and Roy Osgood fired for the defeated home side with John Brownlow notching one for the visitors before Richard Lynch secured the win in the final leg of the match.
However, that was after Mainstone's Alan Parker finish 119 in one visit to the board for the highest finish of the match.
Grenville moved off the bottom of the league and jumped two places after their second success of the season so far; an 8-5 win at Tradesmans B.
