Shear Perfection From Mark

Mark Shears notched up no fewer than three maximums in his King Billy B team's 8-3 win over bottom side Indian Inn in the Steve Chapman 501 League.

This haul helped him to the top of the 180 leaderboard in the league as well as to a twelve ton haul, which was not the highest of the match.

That feat went to teammate Scott Wapshott who put up fourteen ton plusses on the night in a fine scoring performance individually but was beaten by Ian Heggie who scored ten of his own.

Heggie's stablemate Chris Beale also reached double figures for the night but fell 3-2 to James Duke in the individual phase.

There were three 18 darters in the match with two being chalked up by Shears with Paul Gavican hitting the other and going one better with a 17 darter.

Shears also joined forces with Billy Evans for a fine 18 dart 601 (33.39) doubles with the latter also adding his name to the 180 column.

The highest finish of the contest also went to Gavican with a fine 101 checkout in his 3-0 individual win.

John Mann racked up a brace of 180s in his King Billy A team's 9-2 demolition of Torpoint Cons with Antony Hayman, Lee Rodmell and Mike Bulmer also joining Mann in the maximum column.

Hayman also helped himself to the highest finish of the week with a fine 140 checkout with Rodmell top scoring for the Cornwall side with fourteen ton plusses.

Octagon couldn't take advantage of second placed Victory A's inactivity due to postponement as they slipped to a 6-5 defeat at the hands of Fawn B.

Mike O'Brien was top marksman in this contest with fourteen ton plusses and paired with Lee Agar to produced a fine 601 doubles leg in 18 darts.

Jaden Whitting was the only player to score a maximum in the game but went down 3-1 to Jayden Dodd with thanks to an 18 darter and ten ton plusses.

That leg was beaten by teammate Lee Hellings leg in 17 in his 3-0 singles win and his teammate Tony Lamerton produced the highest finish of the match; a fine 106 kill.

St Levans join Octagon on 79 in joint third after their 8-3 win at Victory B in a game that saw Danny Allen score sixteen three figure scores but end on the defeated team.

Anna Johnson was Allen's victim in the singles but the Devon stalwart showed all her battling qualities with a 16 dart leg only to see Allen reply with one of his own.

Allen also produced the highest checkout of the match with a fantastic 130 in a prolific display of form.

Allen's stablemates Ryan Harris and Tony Conn also put the only 180s of the match on the board in ties that the Honicknowle side went on to lose.

The Keyham side's success owed much to the form of Tex Pearce and Shaun Dring who had eleven and ten tons respectively.

The biggest winners of the week were the Kings Arms who ripped through Fawn A by a 10-1 scoreline.

Four players reached ten ton plusses as Reg Matthews, Paul Palmer, Mark Hempsall and Mark Sargeant all struck.

Chrissie Kinnaird's 102 finish was only beaten by teammate Tony Sansom's 115 finish and there was a 16 darter from Palmer; the lowest of the night.
