The Royal B52s are continuing to bomb opposing teams in the men’s darts competition, downing the Great Western Cowboys 10-1 last round.
The win keeps the B52s three points in the competition lead over the Great Western Tigers.
Aaron Griffiths (112, 111), Jason Drew (2x100), Matt Drew (100), John Grevink (100) and Darren Townsend (100) again led the big scoring.
Steve Cassell (125), Troy Speechley (103, 100), Warren Edwards (126) and Max Dennis (125) put in a big effort for the Cowboys.
Tiger Rob Puckeridge who normally hits a string of high scores bagged his second 180 in a week but strangely no others more than 100.
The Tigers had a 10-1 win over the Ophir Nuggets, who were there on the double most games but were beaten to the punch by the Tigers so the score could have been much closer.
The Tigers’ other high scores were hit by Ken Kostitch (7x100, 115), Mitch Kennewell (3x100, 140, 123), Dave Barnard (3x100, 121) and Charles O’Neil (100).
All the Nuggets tried hard, particularly Rob Herbert (100), Terry McInnes (100), Chris Kelly (100) and Cazim Kadic (100).
The Ophir Deviates had a big 11-0 win over the Metro Old Boys, who were two players short, with top games by Brett Savill (120), Jonathon Savill (120, 100), Jason Fewings (117), Matt Caughlan (105) and Joe Throup (100).
Chris Allport (100) and Troy Mavrak (2x100, 121) were the Old Boys to get the top scores.
The hardest fought match of the round was between the Hotel Orange Thunder and Metro Barbarians with the Thunder coming out on top 6-5.
Justin Metcraft (140, 135 100 peg), Slade Anlezark (2x100, 126), Jess Wiegold (2x140, 2x100, 103), Blake Adley (2x100, 140), Brendon Warren (135, 113) and Troy Sale (100) put in a big effort.
The Barbarians’ best were Matthew Roach (2x100, 140), Mark Wiegold (2x100, 140), Jack Collins (118, 102) and Vaughan Murphy (120).
The Renegades’ received a forfeit from the Victoria Crossfires three games into their clash but are believed to be seeking a review from the darts committee into the circumstances.
Up until the forfeit Max Boney (100), Will Owers (140) and Mick Kennedy (140, 100) hit the Renegades’ top scores while the Crossfires’ Dan Leathem (140) and Peter Hamilton (118) had good games.
