Round 10 was played last night with a few changes to the published fixtures due to the absence of two of our players. Darren and James got the ball rolling. A solid performance from Darren including the night's highest score of 135 left James behind on the scores. He checked out all three legs, one with the highest on the night - 54, to win the match 3-0 and gain 4 points to move ahead of James in the table.
Andy took on Craig next in a top-of-the-table clash. Both players were evenly matched, although perhaps not showing their best form as the scoring was below average with a few more darts than usual straying from the 20 and hitting 5 or 1. In the end you couldn't separate the two and it finished with a 2-2 draw.
The third and final match saw Ben play Sam. Ben took a 2-0 lead with a couple of accurate checkouts - looks like the practice helped - but Sam kept the pressure on with an impressive string of treble-19's, scoring 134 with one throw and just missing out on the highest score. Ben needed 133 in the third leg, hitting treble-20 followed by treble-17 to leave one dart at double-11 for the match. However the dart went half an inch wide to leave Sam with a chance to come back which she took: 2-1. She had the advantage of the throw in the final leg and scored steadily to stay ahead and take that leg as well, ending up with a well-deserved 2-2 draw.
Round 11 is to be played on Monday 21st May.
