Top play­ers bat­tle it out

DARTS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE ar­rows were fly­ing as some of Bucks’ top sin­gles play­ers gath­ered at Ha­zle­mere Com­mu­nity Cen­tre for the start of the Su­per Sin­gles Darts League.

Over the next 15 weeks, 16 play­ers will bat­tle it out for the ti­tle. The game of the week one saw Steve McLeod show good early form to over­come John Beat­tie in a high qual­ity en­counter where both men fired 180s.

Pat O’Reilly and Ryan Car­roll were two more men to hit max­i­mums in another ab­sorb­ing clash be­tween youth and ex­pe­ri­ence.

Young­ster Car­roll led early on, but in the end O’Reilly made se­nior­ity tell as he tri­umphed 6-4. New­comer Si­mon White found his feet quickly too to win on open­ing night 6-4 over Mark Luck­ett.

Two more of the con­tenders, last year’s third place man Blaine Jelly and Paul Wood­bridge, could not be sep­a­rated, tak­ing two points apiece for their 5-5 draw in which the lat­ter hit a max­i­mum.

Rob Br­ere­ton though is the early leader after white­wash­ing Mike McLeod 10-0, but Trevor Br­ere­ton had a night to for­get los­ing 9-1 to Andy Long.
