Steam's Beckett Scores Packet Loads

George Beckett once again showed his undoubted class with fifteen ton plusses in a 9-2 win for his Steampacket team against Kings Arms B in the Plymouth City Super League.

Beckett's teammates also showed flashes of genius with Neal Hotchkiss notching both the game's only maximum and a 101 checkout.

That finish was usurped by Marc Webber's 106 in his 3-1 individual success whilst Matt Thompson bagged himself an 18 darter in a 3-0 win.

Thompson's effort was blown away by a leg in 13 from colleague Phil Taylor in his 3-1 triumph as the Devonport team ram raided the away team from Oreston.

Lee Agar starred for the Octagon with twelve ton plusses as they continued their push for the league title with a 9-2 win over Fawn A.

Agar also notched a brace of 18 dart legs and two ton plus checkouts with Agar's 107 only bettered by a 111 from his own hand.

Neil White (26.84) was also prominent with twelve tons of his own, including a maximum, and also netted himself a single 18 dart leg in his impressive 3-0 individual win.

That leg was only bettered on the night by White's stablemate who checked a leg in 17 in his 3-2 win over Mark Hempsall who added a 14 darter in one of the legs he won during the matchup.

One of the two points put onto the scoreboard by the Greenbank team came from a 3-0 win for Simon Stevenson who hit his team's sole 180 during the impressive victory.

The ever impressive Tex Pearce threw twelve three figure scores in a 6-5 defeat for his St Levans team away at Bluebird A.

Pearce won his singles 3-1 thanks in part to a leg in 17 whilst Glenn Halford beat that effort by one dart with a 16 darter in his 3-0 victory.

Halford notched a maximum on his way to ten ton plusses whilst Alan Masters also reached double figures for his evening's work.

Masters also won the critical last point of the match to give his team the win whilst teammate Lee Roberts checked the biggest finish of the contest with a fine 82 kill in three.

Scott Wapshott and Antony Hayman were both at their scintillating best when both registered eleven ton plusses in a 10-1 for the King Billy against Victoria.

Hayman managed as many as three maximums overall in the match and won his singles 3-0 with legs on 11 and 18.

Wapshott was similarly clinical in his 3-1 individual success as he finished in a more than respectable 17 and 18 darts.

Paul Palmer hit the Devonport team's other 180 whilst Heather Toney checked 80 in one visit to register the highest finish of the match.

Steve McAteer was Victoria's lone shining light with a maximum on his way to ten tons, and managed a 15 dart leg in a 3-1 singles win for the Plymstock team's only success of the match.

Quinton Taylor top scored with eleven three figure scores for the Victory A as they came home with a 9-2 win from a trip to Kings Arms A

Taylor's teammate, the evergreen Mark Shears, notched a brace of maximums on his way to ten ton plusses overall.

Mark Gilbery was a third player for the Honicknowle team to reach double figures in tons with one of those being a 103 three dart combination finish; the highest of the match.

Both Gilbery and teammate Taylor managed an 18 dart leg in their individual games whilst Pete Down repeated the feat for the Oreston team in his 3-0 win.

Down's teammate Mike Sant also produced a moment of magic with his team's only 180 of contest in a 3-0 defeat to Gilbery.

Bob Wood reached ten ton plusses in a topsy-turvy 6-5 win for the Cherry Tree over the Clifton that also saw Dan Jewell and Wayne Town continue their recent good form.

The Clifton pair shared two 180s with Town finishing a leg in 18 darts in his 3-0 singles win whilst Jewell won by the same scoreline thanks in part to a 91 checkout.

Ten tons from both Scott and Andrew Cook helped Victory C to a 7-4 win over Saltram that also saw the pair notch a maximum each.

Scott Cook claimed the highest checkout of the week honours with a fine 116 checkout but fell to a 3-2 defeat in the individual stage to Warren Gordon.

Dave Algar helped himself to his team's only maximum on his way to claiming the notable scalp of Andrew Cook by a 3-1 score.

Andy Bond's 114 checkout and a Paul Johnson 180 were the highlights for Colebrook in their 6-5 win over Hyde Park.

With the Peverell team 6-2 down, Ben Welsh sparked a mini revival which made the scoreline respectable with a maximum in his 3-0 singles success.

Bluebird Bandits secured an 8-3 win over Victory B with Nigel Bassett's 100 checkout the highlight for the Compton team.

Mark Williams claimed the only maximum of the contest for the defeated team in a singles loss that was one of eight ties to be decided by just a single leg.
