Sometimes you look at the darts that have been thrown in our league and you think to yourself, oh my god, what a standard that really is. This week was one of those weeks!
In division one, The Bull A lost to the Diamond 6-3, another twist at top of division one. The match was superb and the absolute highlight for me was two legs from Wayne Venes, 12 darts and 14 darts with 2 x 180s and a 129 checkout. That is an amazing 115.61 average over the two legs and his opponent Lee Ware was sitting on checkouts in both legs. I would actually say that is the best performance over two legs I have ever seen in our league because both players were superb.
The Dewdrop Oast beat the DWMC B 6-3, Steve Roberts checked out on 106 and the Boars Head C were 7-2 winners against the Phoenix Maddogs. Jason Davey and Mick Law both hit 180s in this match.
Kyle Manton hit a 180 in the Boars Head Arrows 6-3 win against the Bull B and the Old Endevour were handed a 9-0 by the Real Diamonds.
The Admiral Harvey A were 5-4 winners against the previously unbeaten Three Cups, Louis Pearson hit a 180 for the Harvey. However, the star of the show was definitely Billy Bristow of the Cups, he checked out on 170. Well done Billy!
The Crown & Sceptre have moved to top of the table, they won 5-4 against the Diamond C. They have played one game more than the Cups though.
DSAA Hope picked up a rare win, a 5-4 against the Boars Head A, wasnt all bad news for the division two Boars Head sides, the B side won 6-3 against Tilmanstone.
The Admiral Harvey B won 7-2 against the Phoenix Rising and the Carriers B had a 9-0 against the Bull Dogs.
In to division three, and the Hairy Crown beat the Old Endeavour 7-2 and the Northern Diamonds won 5-4 against the Sportsman. These two sides are joint top at the moment and play each on Friday.
The Carriers excellent season continued, a 7-2 win against the DSAA C and the Phoenix St Pauls were 5-4 winners against the Crown Smiffys.
In the final game of the night the Nelson beat the DSAA Misfits 6-3, Archie Dryden checked out on 113 for the Nelson.
