Wham! Bam! Thank you, Nan!

Mike Nancholas chalked up thirteen three figure scores, including one of four maximums between the teams overall, in his Fawn A team's 7-4 victory over Raffles in the Plymouth City Super League.



Nancholas also finished the lowest recorded game of the contest with a fine 15 darter in his 3-2 win over Alec Turner, who himself put up a stern resistance after reaching double figures in ton plusses overall.


Simon Stevenson (30.67) was also prominent for the victors with a 3-0 win in 16,17,16 whilst teammate Dave Roberts chalked up a leg in 18 in his 3-1 success.



Roberts joined teammate Dan Bunney in hitting maximums for the visitors whilst the other came from the hand of Harry Bull for the defeated Mutley team.


Bull's teammate Tony Reid also showed his finishing prowess with a 118 finish; the highest of the contest and joint second biggest of the week across all ten fixtures.



Glenn Austin reached thirteen three figure scores but ended on the wrong side of a 6-5 defeat as Victory C got the better of Austin's Bluebird A team.


That victory was largely down to Scott Cook who ploughed in eleven tons, including a 180, whilst Andrew Cook also added a maximum of his own.



Paul Goundry was a third member of the Honicknowle side who hit a 180 whilst Glenn Halford hit the only effort for the Compton team.


A highly entertaining singles phase saw the best game coming between James Stoodley and Darren Collis; with the former winning 3-2 thanks in part to a 110 finish.



Every leg in this particular tie was won in 20 darts or less as Collis' brace of 18 darters was quelled by winning legs of 18,19,20 from Stoodley.


Paddy Archibald and Andrew Cook joined teammate Collis in hitting an 18 dart leg in their 3-1 and 3-0 respective wins.



The leg Archibald lost was to a 17 darter from Glenn Austin whilst Scott Cook also added a leg in 16 to his 17 darter in a 3-0 win.


Antony Hayman top scored with eleven tons and helped himself to an 18 dart leg in the singles phase as his King Billy team got their title bid back on track with a 9-2 win over Kings Arms A.



Hayman was ably supported by Scott Wapshott who reached double figures in ton plusses and their teammate Matt Chegwin hit the only maximum of the contest.


After going 1-0 up, the only moment of respite for the Oreston team from a King Billy onslaught was a 3-1 win for Pete Down in which he produced a 98 checkout.



A marvellous encounter between the Steampacket and Saltram that ended 6-5 to the former was accented by individual heroics from Marc Webber and Simon Kelly.


Webber hit two of three personal maximums in a 3-2 defeat to Kelly with both players reaching eleven three figure scores overall.



Webber was well supported by teammates Neal Hotchkiss and George Beckett with the former hitting ten tons and the latter adding another maximum to Webber's impressive tally of three.


Dave Algar added a 116 checkout in one of the five points secured by the away side, which was the highest recorded finish of the matchup.



John Donald reached eleven tons but still finished up on the wrong end of a 6-5 defeat as the Colebrook lost to Bluebird Bandits.


Dale Halford was the best performer for the victorious Compton team with an 83 checkout and a maximum that was added to by teammate Jon Parsons and Adam Searle for the defeated visitors.



Mark Gilbery hit one of three ton plus finishes for the Victory A in their 6-5 win over Ker St; an effort that aided him towards ten tons personally overall.


That 122 from Gilbery was usurped by an inspired Tom James who finished from both 130 and 141 in one visit during his 3-1 singles win; the latter taking the league's high checkout prize for the week.



It certainly wasn't all one way traffic with Ian Heggie top scoring for the Devonport team with ten tons and teammate Paul Takle hitting the only maximum of the match to tie the scores at 5-5.


In the final tie of the night, youth got the better of experience as Gilbery defeated the evergreen Ralph Lancaster 3-0 to give the Honicknowle team the win.


The final three matches were played out between six of the league's bottom eight teams with a topsy-turvy encounter between the Victory B and St Levans eventually won 6-5 by the former.



That was largely thanks to the form of Jason Goldsmith who ploughed in a 108 highest finish in the last tie of the match with the scores poised at 5-5.


Steve Mills checked 118 for Cherry Tree in a 7-4 win over bottom side Hyde Park with the game's maximums coming from Rick Trinder and Ben Welsh; one a piece of each side.



A 94 checkout from Mark Sargeant wasn't enough for the Fawn B to avoid a 9-2 loss to Clifton as Kevin Seal chalked up the only maximum for the victors.
