Franzen wins clash


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

MATCH of the night in week eight of the Su­per Sin­gles Darts League saw both Blaine Jelly and Dan Franzen in ex­cel­lent form, both hit­ting 180s, but Franzen came out on top 7-3 to go fifth in the league.

Ta­ble-topper Steve McLeod was up against Pat O’Reilly in what had looked likely to be match of the night, but nei­ther player re­ally hit top form and it was McLeod who hit his dou­bles to win 7-3 and stay top.

Un­beaten Rob Br­ere­ton was up against Mark Luck­ett and de­spite Luck­ett lead­ing in the early part of the game, Br­ere­ton fought back well to win 6-4 and hit a 180, while Steven Vaughan got back to win­ning ways with a 7-3 vic­tory over Paul Wood­bridge, the high­light of which was a 128 out­shot from Vaughan.

John Beat­tie has had an un­usual start to his sea­son with four wins and two de­feats, and his match against Mick Carl­ton was another bat­tle.

The 5-5 draw was a fair re­sult, with both play­ers hit­ting a 180, while Si­mon White recorded only his sec­ond win of the sea­son – a 9-1 thump­ing of Trevor Br­ere­ton, which moves him up to 12th.
