Scott Cooks A Big Fish

Scott Cook netted himself a top of the shop 170 checkout during King Billy B's 8-3 win over Bluebird B in the Monday Premier League.

That effort was one of three ton plus checkouts from the Devonport outfit as a Steve Ebsworth 107 had to settle for third best thanks to Ant Pearn's 112.

Paul Gavican was the only player in this particular contest that heard '180' called after throwing for either side in a decent win for the home side over a talented Compton outfit.

Champions Tradesmans had John Mann (27.83) at his usual smoking best with three 18 darters in a 3-0 win that came in a 10-1 away triumph over Cherry Tree B.

Mann ended the contest on fourteen tons with a 141 checkout by Mann the biggest of all thirty 'game shot' calls in the high class contest.

Jaden Whitting was also influential in the win with eleven tons whilst two other big finishes also made the headlines.

Simon Washington's 130 combination out shot was matched by one from George Beckett (27.33) who had to work hard for his team's only point of the match.

Beckett's 3-0 success was accented by two 18 dart legs whilst Mike O'Brien added an 18 darter to his leg in 17 during another 3-0 win.

Scott Lawrey's sixteen ton haul in a 6-5 win for Victory over Cherry Tree A was unbeaten in the game week by any player in any game.

Lawrey's mammoth effort was supported well by teammates Kelvin Rowe who added eleven tons whilst Tony Tasker chalked up a maximum on his way to ten ton plusses.

The best leg of 501 for the triumphant side came from the arm of Quinton Taylor who nailed a 15 darter during a 3-0 win over Matt Nicholson.

Nicholson fired his team's only maximum in that contest whilst teammate John Goodall's 101 single visit combination finish was the best of the game.

Their teammate Mike Whatley put up the most resistance for the away side after ending on eleven tons and finishing one of the legs in his 3-0 singles success in 14 darts.

Eleven tons by both Jayden Dodd and Lee Hellings joined ten more from Alfie Ford that did the damage for Octagon A in a 9-2 win at Colebrook.

Hellings, Ford and teammate Paul Palmer (28.60) started the game as they meant to go on with an 801 leg in 28 darts in their very first outing of the contest.

Palmer and Hellings shared the trio of maximums in the game two to one in the former's favour whilst Palmer's 118 checkout was narrowly beaten to the high checkout honours.

That achievement went the way of the defeated side as Zak Smith fired a 119 combination to tick his ton total over to the eleven mark.

Three decent legs lit up the individual phase as Hellings was a 3-0 winner thanks in part to a 17 darter whilst Palmer matched that feat in a 3-1 success.

Ford had the last laugh in the final tie of the night as the best leg of his 3-1 individual success came in 18 darts and six completed visits.

Five of the six maximums were provided by the King Billy A during their 8-3 success over Bluebird A, who had Stuart Couling firing one three treble visit.

Both Antony Hayman and Alec Turner were 180 hitters on two occasions each whilst Andrew Cook's maximum made up the quintet.

At the business end of legs, Wayne Oddie's 90 checkout wasn't bettered by any of the twelve on display whilst Cook and Hayman provided two remarkable legs in the singles phase.

Hayman's 17 darter in his 3-0 win settled for second best to a Cook leg in 15 in a 3-1 victory that was one of four his team won individually.

A topsy-turvy contest between Octagon B and Indian Inn went right down to the final possible leg as Danny Bull got his Stoke village team over the line 6-5 with a 3-2 individual success.

Ton plus checkouts of 114 and 103 were provided by teammates Harry Bull and Adam Fell whilst there was a 180 from Alan Rowe.
