ANY­THING-BUT-STALE MATE

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

PAUL Tubb’s match against Blaine Jelly was the pick of the week 10 fix­tures in the Su­per Sin­gles Darts League at the River­side Club.

Both play­ers were in fine form, and so the game proved, with high qual­ity and heavy scor­ing through­out, en­sur­ing a 5-5 draw was an ap­pro­pri­ate score. Tubb hit a 180 and a 128 out-shot, while Jelly man­aged a 116 out-shot.

Jelly also went on to play a sec­ond match on the night and came out a 7-3 win­ner against an im­prov­ing Andy Long, who threw a 180.

There were im­pres­sive wins for Leigh Birch – who beat Keith Carter 9-1 de­spite his op­po­nent’s 117 out­shot – and John Beat­tie, who was an 8-2 win­ner over Si­mon White.

Mark Luck­ett’s sea­son gets bet­ter and bet­ter, his lat­est win an im­pres­sive 7-3 vic­tory over Mick Carl­ton, with both play­ers hit­ting a 180 and Luck­ett get­ting a 100 out-shot, while Leigh Ross got the bet­ter of Marc Del­lar 8-2 and jumped ahead of Del­lar up to third.

The Pat O’Reilly ver­sus Rob Br­ere­ton match was an­other full of qual­ity darts, and in par­tic­u­lar one leg for O’Reilly, as he hit the high­est out-shot of the sea­son, a 161, as the match ended in a 5-5 draw.

Eye in: Pat O’Reilly.
