The turnaround of the season is here, and there is plenty play for in all the divisions.
In division one the Diamond and the Bull A picked up wins moved two points clear at the top of the table, the Diamond beat the Real Diamonds 6-3 and the Bull A beat Boars Head Arrows by the same margin. The Old Endeavour who were top lost 6-3 against the Hairy Bull and the Dewdrop who were also joint top with the other three had a bye this week.
These three games had 180s from Brian Pearce, Mark Clayton, Phil Hayes, Jim Yarwood, Ash Battie, Kev Hackett, Tony Selby, Dave Heath and Paul Kermode. There was also a 154 checkout for John Hughes of the Old Endeavour, the second highest of the season so far.
The Dwmc B beat the Phoenix Maddogs 5-4, Martin Sammonds hit a 180 and the Boars Head C beat the Bull B 5-4.
Whilst the scoreline in these games were different, all division one matches were won by the same team from the first game of the season.
The Three Cups of division two were 8-1 winners against the Bull Dogs, as always if you the only person to lose the team like to name and shame, so if you didnt know, it was JAMIE BREEDEN .
Second placed Crown & Sceptre beat the Boars Head A 7-2, their first defeat in seven games. The Admiral Harvey A were also 7-2 winners, they beat the Phoenix Rising. Fourth placed Diamond C beat the Carriers B 5-4, the same score as Tilmanstone against the Admiral Harvey B.
The Boars Head B picked up a much needed win, they beat the DSAA Hope 7-2.
Bob Barrington and Shaun Breeden both hit 180s for the Admiral Harvey B, and compared to the first week of the season, Tilmanstone’s win against the Admiral Harvey A and the Boars Head B win against the DSAA hope were the only games that had different winners on the night.
In to division three, we have some disappointing news that the Sea Lions have pulled out of the league. Rule 16 has now been applied.
16. If any team withdraws from the league during the first half of the season then all results including that team, including 180s and 100+ will be removed from standings. If team pulls out in second half of season, only those game after the turn around will be removed from standings.
On with those that did play though.
The Hairy Crown are top of the shop, they had a cracking 9-0 win against the Phoenix St Pauls. Luke Kennett hit a 180 and Jack Gealer checked out on 109 for the Hairy.
The Northern Diamonds have now gone eleven games unbeaten, there last defeat was against the Carriers A, who they beat this week 6-3.
The Old Endeavour won 5-4 against the Sportsman, all on the last game of the match. Sam Arbon won the important final game.
DSAA Misfits also won 5-4, this was there first win of the season which obviously means that was a reverse of the first half of the season.
Finally the Phoenix C beat the Crown Smiffys 5-4.
Happy darting people!
