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.
