Wood­bridge throws away the form book

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

PAUL Wood­bridge en­joyed some­thing of an up­turn in for­tunes in the Su­per Sin­gles Darts League this week.

Wood­bridge has been prop­ping up the rest for much of the sea­son, but de­fied the form­book to hit a 180 on his way to gain­ing a point from a 5-5 draw with Seven Vaughan – and he was not the only league struggler to find some form at the oche in the lat­est round of games.

Dave Stopps is an­other who has strug­gled so far in the cur­rent cam­paign, but he pushed cur­rent leader Dan Franzen all the way be­fore go­ing down 6-4.

Draw­ing some in­spi­ra­tion even in de­feat he later fought out a 5-5 draw with Andy Long.

Cur­rent se­cond-placed man Steve McLeod pro­duced the night’s real fire­works, hit­ting three 180s in a 9-1 thrash­ing of Rob Br­ere­ton, who did at least pro­duce one max­i­mum of his own by way of con­so­la­tion.

McLeod though has now hit eight max­i­mums this sea­son and sits just two points be­hind Franzen in the stand­ings with a match in hand.

Leigh Ross stays third af­ter a 7-3 suc­cess over Trevor Br­ere­ton, while Pat O’Reilly won a high qual­ity en­counter with Mark Luck­ett by the same score thanks in part to a 116 check­out.

And Mark Del­lar pro­duced a 180 in his 7-3 win over Si­mon White – a vic­tory which moved him up to eighth in the stand­ings.
