Slick Pethick Aids Octagon's Runner-up Push

Dave Pethick hit fourteen ton plusses in Octagon's 8-3 win over Torpoint Cons to keep the Stonehouse team in with a shout of securing second spot at the end of the Steve Chapman 501 League season.

Two of those were checkouts of 118 and 100; the former being the highest finish of the week throughout the league.

This haul helped Pethick legs of 15 and 18 in his singles but Pethick was eventually beaten by Paul Tackle who notched eleven tons and legs of 17 and 18 in a 3-2 win.

Next highest scoring Octagon player was Alfie Ford with eleven ton plusses whilst teammate Jayden Dodd reached ten, and the pair teamed for a 19 dart 601 leg for 31.63 average.

Ford himself picked up a leg in 17 darts whilst Andrew Waters 18 darter for the defeated Cornwall side was aided along by some of a ten ton haul.

Teammate Neil Reid bettered that leg with a 16 darter of his own in a 3-2 win that was one of two individual games the Torpoint team took.

King Billy B remain second after a whitewash of Victory B in which there was as many as five maximums and a 116 checkout from Billy Evans.

Evans himself hit one of the five and joined teammate Scott Wapshott in achieving the feat whilst the others were hit by defeated players Dan Johnson, James King and Kieran Harris for the Honicknowle team.

Evans also top scored with twelve tons whilst Jason Pinkerton chalked up ten of his own on a good night for the victors.

Anna Johnson was most prominent in St Levans 7-4 defeat to Fawn B with thirteen three figure scores whilst Mike Pearce hit ten; one of those a 116 high checkout of the match.

Pearce joined three players from the Greenbank side in hitting maximums with Jaden Whitting, Neil White and Mike O'Brien striking.

Both Whitting and White also reached ten three figure scores on a good night for the visitors who now sit comfortably in fifth following this win.

Two 180s a piece from both Paul Palmer and Paul Hendy, as well as one from Dave Algar, helped the Kings Arms to an 11-0 whitewash victory over bottom side Indian Inn.

Palmer also helped himself to a 95 checkout in one visit that was usurped by Algar's 98 on a good night for the pair individually, and as a team with only one leg being dropped in the contest.

Leaders King Billy A now hold a lead of forty-one point lead after a 10-1 win over Cherry Tree in which Lee Doncaster hit the highest checkout of the contest; a 109 kill.

John Mann, Antony Hayman and Alec Turner all secured maximums for themselves whilst Doncaster also produced a 14 darter in his 3-0 singles triumph.

Darren Collis was the star of the show as Victory A moved their bid to become runners-up in the right direction with a solid 7-4 against Fawn A.

Collis' eleven three figure scores were necessary as the Greenbank team had led 4-3 before the Honicknowle team won the last four with only one leg dropped to claim the win.
