The O'Brien King
Tradesmans A took full advantage of the inactivity of the second placed St Johnston A in the Plymouth and District Friday Darts League to open up a twenty-three point lead over title rivals thanks to a 13-0 whitewash of the Pennycross.
Mike O'Brien was one of four players for the Stonehouse side who reached double figures as he topped scored with twelve ton plusses.
O'Brien (31.28) also helped himself to the lowest number of darts for the week with a fantastic 32 dart leg; which is also the third shortest game of the season.
Jayden Dodd, Luke Johnson and Paul Nash were the other players who reached the coveted double figures as the team notched fifty-two tons in total.
One of these was a 110 finish from Paul Nash, which was also the highest checkout of the week in the league.
Teammate Nick Dodd ploughed in three maximums and a 37 dart leg in his individual game, which was a third of all 180s across all matches.
Simon Washington and Ryan Stubbs scored a maximum each as the Octagon won 8-5 over Queens Arms who came back from 6-1 to give the score some respectability in the individual phase.
King Billy hit three of four maximums in their 9-4 win over Indian Inn to maintain their comfortable lead over the chasing pack in third spot.
Andrew Nation, Ryan Ring and Matt Abbott all fired for the visitors to take their team tally to double figures for the season.
Mark Hatherley replied with one of his own and kept up his joint lead at the top of the individuals thanks to ten wins from eleven starts.
Jamie Sandford ploughed in a 96 checkout in his Grenville side's 9-4 defeat at Kings Tamerton and Ker St climbed off the bottom thanks to a victory by the same score over Tradesmans B.
