McLeod claims hat-trick of titles as Franzen falters
But Penn & Tylers SC produced their best performance of the season to beat Phoenix Club 12-2 and replace them at the top, Leigh Birch bagging his fourth 180 of the season.
The Hazlemere CC against Holmer Green Legion A clash produced some stunning darts, with Holmer’s Richard Tilbury hitting two 180s to take his season’s tally to five, while team-mate Andy Perrin managed a brilliant 167 outshot, but it was not enough to stop Hazlemere running out 8-6 winners.
Riverside Club moved up to second place after winning 9-5 against a gallant Cressex CC E, while Division Two leaders Winchmore Hill CC stretched their lead at the top to 12 points with an excellent 12-2 win over Bourne End CC.
Second-placed Cressex CC C were held to a 7-7 draw at the Marsh Legion, for whom Nigel Hobson managed a 110 outshot, while Judo Club beat Holmer Green Legion B 8-6.
