Chumbawombas make hay to bring down Flying Jacks
WITH their big title rivals having the week off, Chumbawombas took full advantage and a 9-0 thrashing of Flying Jacks lifted them to the top of the Triples League First Division.
The trio of Kevin Brouard, Ken Waters and Lee Smith were all in decent form.
Smith fired a 15-darter and posted 10 scores of 106-plus, while Waters’ and Brouard’s best legs were 18-darters, the pair of them each firing 13 scores of 106-plus.
Waters also posted a 180.
Northerners boosted their hopes of claiming a top-three finish with a hard-earned 5-4 win over Del’s Boys.
Star of the show here was footballer Scott Bougourd who as well as winning three from three fired a 14-darter, but that fine effort was comfortably surpassed by a superb 11-dart performance from Leighton de la Mare.
It was in the first leg against Bougourd that de la Mare fired an 85 opener, followed by scores of 140, 180 and a 96 checkout.
But he could not maintain the form and having levelled the rubber 2-2, Bougourd secured the win with his 14-dart effort that comprised 100, 125, 140, 81 and a checkout from 55.
Busters stay close on the heels of Northerners after a 7-2 win at Mary’s Jaffa Cakes.
Paul Poullain again won all his three and posted a 17-darter in the process.
Ad’s Army edged out Tornados 5-4 with both Kyle Hutchinson and Adam Gontier picking up a pair of wins.
Gontier produced one fine 15-darter and also a 132 finish.
In the other top-flight match Venture Inn defeated Rebels 7-2 with both Andy Fallaize and Jason Brouard winning all three against a side short of one player.
In terms of the overall aggregates, Lee Smith heads the table with 32 wins, one more than Mark Fletcher Jnr.
Lee Savident and Leyton de la Mare sit on the 29 mark, one ahead of Chris Smith. Jason Allez is on 27 with Poullain on 26 and Ken Waters and Phil Dodd on 24.
