Ten Out Of Ten For Steve Chapman 501 Leaders

Four players reached double figures in tons as King Billy A made it ten from ten to maintain a fifteen point lead at the top.

Joint top scorers in the Devonport side's 8-3 win were Alec Turner and Scott Cook with twelve whilst Andy Bates had eleven and John Mann hit ten.

Mann also claimed the high checkout of the match with a fine 126 with two maximums for Cook, and one each from Turner and Luke Johnson.

Fawn B singles winners on the night, Jaden Whitting and Mike O'Brien, both had to work hard for their points with the pair hitting double figures in three figure scores.

Also 8-3 winners, over the Kings Arms, were second placed Victory A who had Paul Goundry in top form with twelve ton plusses, including a 180.

This fantastic show of marksmanship contributed to a fine 14 dart leg for the Victory man in his individual game.

Also in good form was Goundry's teammate Quinton Taylor with ten three figure scores and Kelvin Rowe showed a brief moment of his usual brilliance with a fine 116 checkout.

This effort though was beaten by another Victory player, Scott Lawrey, who nailed an epic 156 in his 3-0 singles win; the highest checkout of the week in the league.

Paul Palmer was Kings Arms' best performer with ten tons and a 16 dart leg in his 3-2 individual win with Reg Matthews chalking up a maximum.

Octagon gained a point on second with a 9-2 win over Victory's B side with the away side not being able to field a full side.

Alfie Ford played some phenomenal stuff for the winners with a 13 dart leg and two 180s, and Ford was joined by the evergreen Ralph Lancaster in the 180 column.

Despite the defeat, Dan Johnson was undoubtedly the man of the match by far though; contributing a brace of maximums, a 15 darter, and a finish of 150 in a 3-2 singles success.

Danny Allen provided second three figure finish for the defeated side; a 107 checkout in the other point the Honicknowle side won.

St Levans leapfrogged two places into fourth after their 7-4 win at bottom side Indian Inn.

Shaun Dring fired a maximum with Tex Pearce the only player to reach double figures in ton plusses.

King Billy B matched their A side's scoreline against the other Fawn team; returning from their away trip with eight valuable points.

Scott Wapshott showed his class with thirteen ton plusses, including two maximums and was followed closely behind by Billy Evans who bagged eleven and a maximum.

Mark Shears contributed a fourth 180 for the Devonport side who ran off two spells of winning four out of five ties in the match.

Wapshott also fired the least number of darts for the Billy Boyz with legs of 17 and 18 in his 3-2 singles win over Mark Sargeant.

Sargeant helped himself to a 16 dart leg that was aided by some of a ten ton haul on the night for the defeated Greenbank side.

Sargeant's teammate Dave Clemson rolled back the years to produce a 98 checkout; the highest of this encounter.

Cherry Tree secured only their third win of the campaign with a 6-5 over the Torpoint Cons with youngster Frankie Stout producing a moment of magic with a fine 110 checkout.

There were two maximums in this contest with Marc Webber and Paul Tackle notching one each before Paul Hoare secured the final point of the game to bring home the victory for the Pennycross side.
