Two top in clas­sic clash


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE top two play­ers in the Su­per Darts Sin­gles League went head to head at the Ha­zle­mere Com­mu­nity Cen­tre this week – and the game was not a dis­ap­point­ment.

Both Steve McLeod and Rob Br­ere­ton (pic­tured) hit high scores, in­clud­ing 180s, through­out the game, with Br­ere­ton lead­ing 4-1 after the first ses­sion, but McLeod hit back in the sec­ond ses­sion, tak­ing three of the first four legs.

McLeod then needed to take the fi­nal leg for a 5-5 draw and when he was left need­ing a top, with Br­ere­ton on 152, it looked odds on a draw, but Br­ere­ton hit two 60s and a dou­ble 16 to take the win 6-4 and re­main un­beaten.

Another un­beaten record also went as Andy Long fell to Pat O’Reilly 8-2, with O’Reilly hit­ting a 180, while another 8-2 win­ner was Steven Vaughan over Blaine Jelly, de­spite Jelly hit­ting a 180.

Dan Franzen moved into sec­ond spot after his 7-3 win over Mike McLeod came in quick time, de­spite McLeod hit­ting a 123 out­shot, while Dave Stopps bagged an im­pres­sive 7-3 win over John Beat­tie and Paul Wood­bridge pulled off a hard fought 6-4 win over Mark Luck­ett.
