Stevenson Rockets Gate To Another Big Win

Newcomers Cornwall Gate are enjoying their debut season in Plymouth City Super League Division A with talisman Simon Stevenson leading the St Budeaux outfit to a 9-2 win over fellow promoted side Clifton.

Stevenson netted two of the five maximums in the game on his way to seventeen scores of a ton or more with Stevenson's tally propped up by a 127 checkout.

Stevenson's 180s were nailed in a 3-0 singles win that was accented by legs in 15 and 14 darts whilst teammate Andy Malinowski bagged himself a three treble visit.

Malinowski was also a 3-0 winner in the individual phase with a 15 darter his best whilst Matt Vosper was a fourth member of the first Division B champions to add a 180.

On a difficult night for the visitors from Greenbank, Niall McGarvey will take some solace from being the only member of this team to fire a maximum in the heavy loss.

Two teams that are likely to be in the mix to challenge the likes of Cornwall Gate for second spot in the league played out a 7-4 result as Antony Hayman's King Billy were turned over by Cherry Tree C.

Hayman offered up thirteen tons, including a maximum that was matched by teammate Finley Roberts who put up a three treble visit of his own.

Steve Towl led the way with twelve tons for the visitors whilst teammate Dave Hollow played a support role with ten tons of his own.

Towl's 3-2 individual success was pushed over the line by a fine 16 darter whilst Hollow's 78 checkout was only bettered by a 122 from Paddy Archibald for the defeated home side.

After just three weeks, Octagon look like they might just be unstoppable in their quest to claim a third straight Super League crown with a 10-1 win over Cherry Tree A ominous reading for the chasing pack.

Lee Hellings was the most prominent scoring player for the reigning champs with eleven ton plusses whilst both Neil White and John Mann ticked their ton tallies over to the ten mark.

Mann's top score was a maximum whilst the cherry on top of White's total was a 131 checkout that was the best of all twenty-eight finishes in the contest.

White's checkout bettered a 112 by Mann and a 102 from team captain Fred Goldsmith whilst Paul Palmer put up a second 180 for the rampant visitors.

A trio of world class averages started with White and Palmer (27.32) paired nicely in the double phase with 601 legs of 21 and 23 darts during a 2-0 success.

Hellings (27.83) bagged himself a 15 darter on his way to a 3-0 win before Mann (28.90) as he so often does, outdid his teammates with legs in 18, 18 and 16 for another 3-0 triumph.

Goldsmith's 3-0 success also yielded an 18 dart leg that contributed to the feeling of superiority and dominance over their rivals.

Kings Arms B's Simon Kelly bagged himself ten tons and became the hero of the hour in a narrow 6-5 victory over Steampacket.

Kelly was a 3-0 winner in the final rubber of the match that was locked at 5-5 before Kelly stepped up to claim the win for his team.

Kelly's 70 checkout might've been the best for his Oreston based team, but it was more than doubled by Marc Webber for the visitors from Devonport.

Webber bagged a 146 kill that was the highest checkout of the week across all fixtures and also added an 18 dart leg in a 3-2 singles success.

Webber's effort left him on ten tons whilst teammate and fiancée Kayleigh Adams joined him in dispatches with a fine three treble visit, which was the only one of it's kind in the fixture.

Indian Inn A were also 6-5 winners in their visit to Ker St with Harry Bull claiming the eleventh and final point of the game with a 3-1 singles win.

Bull's teammate Lisa Hellings showed the undoubted class that's earned her Cornwall county caps with a 16 darter in a 3-2 singles win over Roger Bailey.

Bailey added the game's only maximum in the narrow loss whilst Paul Tackle was also prominent for the defeated team with a 94 checkout and 18 dart leg during a 3-1 win that tied the game at 5-5.
