MONDAY night saw Drew Tweedy inflict a painful 4-1 defeat on to the previously unbeaten Andrew McDermott.

Tweedy showed his class with heavy scoring including a 177, 108 checkout when McDermott was sat on 32, and a 14-dart leg in the process, this put McDermott to the sword. He also picked up two other victories in a very successful evening.

McDermott, after that defeat, went on to produce a thrilling 4-1 victory over Nige Davis. A barrage of 180s, along with a 14 and 11-dart leg helped McDermott bounce back.

A top of the table tussle with Danny Aplin saw another 14-dart leg and two 90 checkouts along with lots of missed doubles from Aplin helped secure a 4-2 victory in his final game. Danny Aplin did manage to secure 3 other victories on the night, also hitting two 122 checkouts.

The only player to remain unbeaten in the league, Mr Sam Ward, secured three classy 4-0 victories, hitting two 180s and hitting the summit of the ADC.

Nigeria Davis threw some excellent darts, hitting a wonderful 161 checkout and a 180 in his victory against Shaun Lampard and picked up a 4-2 victory and a draw in other games on the night.

Scott Gannon picked up another point, hitting a 103 checkout from his fixtures. Paul Paice picked up two victories and a draw from his four fixtures and Matty Betts picked up his first win of season with a thumping 4-0 whitewash of newcomer Ian Lloyd.

Lloyd’s misery was further compounded with only picking up one other point from his remaining two fixtures when suffering a 4-1 defeat to fellow newcomer Guy Paddock. This was to be Paddock’s only highlight of the evening. Paul Dormer racked up the points with four victories from four, hitting a 101 checkout in one of his games.

Stew Masters went undefeated on the night bagging two victories and a draw from his three fixtures. Andy Masters was not as lucky as his son and only managed one win and a draw from his three fixtures, with his defeat coming at the hands of Mark Samways, who himself picked up a second win against young Eddie Knell. Eddies only point of the night coming against Paul Paice.

Simon Churchill enjoyed a fruitful evening winning five points from a possible six to keep his place in the top 12. Two 180s on the night for Arnie Quinn could only help him secure one win and a draw from his three fixtures.

The standard of the ADC is increasing with another 15 180’s and seven ton plus checkouts hit in week four. The race for the top 12 is on.
